What occurs if you are eat more calories?
If you follow the protocol set by Dr Simeons, you may gain a couple of pounds, but no more. Be sure to follow phase 3 and then eat healthy

If I know I am going to have a bad meal and drinks (4th of July) should I take the drops or not take the drops?
Definitely take the drops. You want to maintain a constant level in your body even when you know you are going to binge on the 4th.

I weighed myself and had lost 10 lbs but then I went to a store and the scale said I hadn’t lost that much. I got upset and ate two little hambugers. Now I feel like poop, what can I do?
You need to make sure that you have a good digital scale. You should always use the same scale to run your weight from. The scales can vary a bit and for that purpose, it is very important to always use the same scale. Don't be discouraged, simply recommit yourself and get back to the protocol.

What would a cheat day harm? It's approaching Thanksgiving and no way can I just eat 500 calories. Do I still take the drops if I splurge a day
Yes, still take the drops and try and do the best you can.

It's my first day of 500 calorie and I am freaked out that I am so hungry. Also, if I had to do a toast at a wedding, what drink would be ok for me to have while on this diet?
Hunger is common for during the first week. Continue to drink lots of water while your body adjusts. As far as the wedding is concerned, water is the best options, or if you could substitute diet Sprite for champagne, that would be great. If there are no alternatives simply do the best that you can knowing that it may interfere with some of your weight loss for a couple of days. You will recover though.

I am on day 4 of phase two and I am really hungry today. I went ahead and ate two extra apples! Will this affect my diet badly?
It is common to experience hunger during the first week of P2. After that if you are still experiencing hunger, you can increase the drops to 15 drops 3 times a day if needed.
