HCG Diet Information

Top 30 Acceptable HCG Diet Foods

HCG Diet Information

The HCG diet plan is rather restrictive, but it’s important to stay within the boundaries of the acceptable food list in order to achieve best results. Eat two (2) portions of protein (items 1-14), vegetables (items 15-25), and fruit (items 25-30) per day, but no more than 2 of them at the same time. The meat protein options (items 1-11) can be baked, steamed, or broiled. Do not fry them, and don’t cook them in additional fat. Items 12, 13, and 14 are vegetarian substitutions for protein. You may season the food with salt, pepper, herbs, or lemon juice. In addition to these foods, make sure to drink 2 liters of water per day.
