Don't worry if you go a bit over your calories, you can always ease yourself into it with 700 or so if that's better for you!

What did you have that day? (and you did not fail in your first fast) If you go over the 500 cal it is not failure, it is just a low-cal day. Do not try to fast the day after a preceived failed fast until you are well into fasting. Be kind to yourself. This is a new WoE and will take time for you and your body to adjust. Good luck to you and we are always here to help you, just check-in frequently to read our advice and encouragement.
I found making a salad gave me a huge amount of food for my evening meal with a small tin of tuna for a bit of protein.
So what I would say, if you want 1 or 2 'meals' on a fast day try to include salad as you get lots for your calories! Maybe add a boiled egg or chicken or fish....and keep drinking the water!!
I really think its a mind over matter situation, the fact that you can't eat what you want, when you want, makes you want to do exactly that!! Just keep reminding yourself that its just for 1 day and tomorrow you can have what you want. You'll also feel a real sense of achievement when you've done it!
I'm chuffed that I have made the decision to follow this plan, I just hope I get results!!!
If you think that going with no food till lunch or dinner is not your style, don't push yourself. I usually have two meals and two snacks on my fast days because my stomach is very sensitive and won't remain empty for too long without giving me a very hard time.
If you don't like herbal teas, try broth made of stock cubes.
