Yes: If you are doing the 500 cal diet, it is best to stop. That kind of diet is not safe and will not provide you with enough nutrients.

Yes: You will likely lose benefits if you stop all together. You can pause the diet for a set time and than resume it. Best to see a qualified physician to do this diet the right way. Too many physicians state this diet is dangerous but lack the training necessary to administer it correctly.
