    If you're following plan properly, you shouldn't be light-headed - after all it's not a vlcd where you are not eating "properly". I'd say quite the opposite, in fact. Do go to your doctor - you won't be wasting his/her time. It needs to be checked out. IMO

    Could be your blood pressure - perhaps make an appointment with your practice nurse to get it checked.

    I agree , I have low(ish) blood pressure and if it dips I feel light headed and low energy etc. I'd go and get it checked.

    I get light headed because I have iron, folate and vitamin b12 anaemia. you need a blood test!

    Just wanted to say that this happens quite often to me too. Like you I don't want to waste doctors time. Let us know what doctor says if you do go x
