One factor is caviar and water lack carbohydrates. Your body can make a small amount of carbs but you're going to have problems if you do any exertions. It'll be like you're on a strict Atkins diet.

You're also not going to be getting any calcium in your diet so your body is going to compensate by consuming calcium out of your bones, which will get brittle. Lack of calcium will also lead to seizures.

You'll also get scurvy from the lack of Vitamin C but that will take several weeks to show up. You'll probably be dead before that becomes an issue.
