Thanks for the comments above. I don't think it is related to caffeine as I am mostly decaf with just two full caf coffees a day and the rest of my drinks decaff. I do need to drink more though so will have some water.
I've had porridge with water and a little milk for breakfast, just about to have some veg soup for lunch. Feel ok just now but it's usually the following day I get the migraine. Watch this space
One note from my personal experience, though: I'm a little paranoid when it comes to headaches because I used to be on blood pressure medicine. I'm glad to say that with exercise I've been able to control my blood pressure and drop the medication (yay!) but I remember that when I was on medication and not exercising, if I skipped a day or two of medicine I would get the most-awful headaches and, of course, my blood pressure would be through the roof.
So, if you are getting headaches regularly for whatever reason, try to get your blood pressure checked just to make sure that isn't what's causing it!
I want to stay on 5:2 for the rest of my life and do not want to sabotage myself at the start.

I, too, am in my fourth week and am still having the headaches. Like my fellow dieter here, they start in the late afternoon. I've kept my caffeine intake approximately the same as pre-diet, so I don't think that's what it is. However, the sodium loss does speak to me. I have problems with that anyway. I suppose I've got to figure out a way to rehydrate other than just plain water since that just makes me have to leave my desk more frequently at work.

Thinking back I realised I had cut out two cups of tea just because I didn't feel like it at the usual time. My next fast is on Thursday so I'll be extra vigilant with my fluid intake. It felt just like the headache you get with a hangover which I guess does point in the direction of dehydration.
I was indeed extra vigilant on Thursday and had not even a hint of a headache.
ps love the chook atavar
