What causes a dizzy spell?

Hello, earlier this evening I was in a bar and felt very lightheaded, as though I wanted to faint or even have a dizzy spell. I had not eaten for 7 hours, had cycled for around an hour beforehand and was drinking a diet coke. Is it possible I had some sort feeling caused by a caffeine rush? Thankyou Jack
