The feelings of needing food and needing a drink are quite similar, but one of the two can lead to a broken diet and the other is ok.

The majority of the undesirable side-effects reported, such as feeling tired, diarrhea, constipation, or headaches seem to pass quickly, but critics contend that low carb diets are not without serious long term side effects.
Moreover, it has been proposed that the kidneys may come under too much strain and that a related change in blood acidity levels can lead to bone damage, but some of the scientifc research trying to test the hypothesis have struggled to find significant evidence of damage to the kidneys or loss of bone.
