What Can I Eat on the HCG Diet?

What can I eat on the HCG Diet?

Eating only 500 calories a day might seem difficult to maintain. And having limitations on what you can eat to make up those 500 calories can seem nearly impossible. Planning and being clear on what you can have is key. Consider having just coffee or tea for breakfast and concentrate on getting much of your nourishment during lunch and dinner. You can also prep some of the meals at the beginning of the week if you don’t think you’ll have time to cook and plan during the week.

Salt – Your Hidden Best Friend

One of the best things you can do on the HCG Diet Protocol is to drink lots of water and use lots of salt.

“SALT?!!!”

Yes, I said salt. Not the nasty, over-processed, silicon-laden stuff that likely sits on your table right now. I mean natural salts that will add precious minerals back into your system and help it to function properly. Good salts, like Himalayan Pink Salt.

Mineral salts are great on the HCG Diet. They transport precious minerals to the body, give your food amazing flavor (WITHOUT adding calories!), and can be used to make you thirsty…so you’ll drink more water…which is always good. 🙂
