Take your drops correctly and at prescribed intervals during the day. Start with 10 drops 3 times a day in the morning, at midday, and at dinnertime. Put the 10 drops on a spoon and put the drops under your tongue. Swallow naturally. Wait 20-30 minutes before eating, drinking, or brushing your teeth. You do not need to eat immediately after this. Try to take your drops on a regular schedule. If you forget to take your drops before your meal, wait at least 20-30 minutes after eating and resume taking your drops. Return to your regular schedule. You must take your drops 3 times a day unless advised otherwise by your coach.
Start taking our drops on your Gorge Days to get them into your system. If you are hungry on Day 3 of the diet, call your coach in the morning.

If you feel fine the first day, contact your coach later in the day to let us know how your first day went.
