What are you eating exactly and are you eating at least enough for your basal metabolic rate * 1.2? How much are you working out? I can see headaches as a symptom of hunger, but it could also be something else. Hence, the questions. (more)

I've found that the best way to alleviate dehydration headaches is by drinking pure water (no salt or electrolytes added) and eating some potassium-rich foods. Potassium balances out sodium in the body.
