I agree with dr. Tran, & would add dehydration to the list of relatively common concerns that can develop with certain extreme diets.
Dehydration can lead to a variety of problems including muscle cramps/spasms. If you need to loose weight & are trying-good job, but if doing it in an extreme manner, please be sure you're doing it with medically supervision so you can have proper monitoring.
