If you do cheat for a meal or for one or two days in a row, all it means is that the weight loss process will stop for a few days or a temporary slight increase in weight may occur. Immediately start the diet again at the next meal and carry on. If you cheat on a meal every other day, you are wasting your time.
It is recommended to begin the HCG therapy at least 10 days before your period starts or right after you finish your cycle. You must stop the injections as soon as your period begins. When you notice only a small amount of spotting, you may resume the injections. Taking the injection while on your period may cause heavy bleeding which can lead to temporary iron deficiency anemia.

Most importantly, however, is when you are doing the diet combined with the HCG injections; your body is being flooded with over 2,000 calories of nutrition from the releasing of the abnormal fat reserves. This is one of the reasons that during Phase 2 you are not hungry and generally have an increase in energy levels.
It is common for mild hunger during the first few days, however this will pass and by the 2nd week, you will find even very tiny servings, to be completely satisfying. This is partly due to your hypothalamus adjusting your metabolic rate, but largely due to the amount of calories circulating in your system from the fat being released. It is common that HCG dieters feel as though they are stuffing themselves in order to reach that 500 calorie limit.
