Have you eaten anything? Have you had any salty drink? You might be needing a bit of salt, try some bouillon or soup.

Dissolve half a stock cube in a mug of water, or a teaspoon of bouillon powder http://www.tesco.com/groceries/Product/ ... =255956181

Only 12 calories and some sodium to make up for what you've lost on reduced calories. May help with the light head.

If you recently started on this WOE, it's not unusual to have these symptoms. Lasted for the first three fasts in my case, including headaches, bad sleep and being very grumpy. After that, no problems.
Keep your fluids up, especially something like bouillon/stock/OXO might help. A spoon of honey in a cup of tea might also help.
Good luck!

Indeed, don't be afraid to go over by 20 cals or so, it won't matter and if the salty drink helps then it's more than worthwhile!
