Hcg Diet Food List

Hcg Diet Food List

The Original Simeons Dietary Plan

The original 500 calorie VLCD (very-low-calorie diet) dietary menu created by Dr. Simeons remains the benchmark for the hCG diet. Although many newer and more modern hCG dietary creations have emerged, the tried and true choices still hold considerable value. They allow a dieter to keep it simple and, in essence, return to the very basics.

When to Start the VLCD Phase

The VLCD phase usually starts on day three and continues up to day 40. During this time period, it is imperative that you follow a specific food list to achieve success with your hCG diet.

HCG Vegetable Options:

  • Spinach
  • Chard
  • Chicory
  • Beet-greens
  • Green Lettuce (iceberg, romaine, bibb, Boston)
  • Celery
  • Fennel
  • Onions
  • Red radishes
  • Tomatoes*
  • Cucumbers
  • Asparagus
  • Cabbage

HCG Protein Options:

  • Veal
  • Lean Beef (such as filet mignon, sirloin steaks, extra lean ground beef)
  • Bison
  • Chicken breast (must be boneless, skinless chicken breast with all fat removed)
  • Fresh white fish (such as sea bass, burbot, cod, pock, tilapia, whiting, orange roughy)
  • Lobster
  • Crab (must be fresh crab, no imitation crab allowed)
  • Shrimp
  • Canned tuna (must be packed in water)
  • All meats must be weighed to 3.5 oz/100g.
  • They should be weighed raw and have all visible fat trimmed.

How to Control Cravings and Hunger

Many dieters opt to chew sugarless gum throughout the day as a way to satisfy their hunger cravings. Water throughout the day is also another option to relieve your hunger.

Strict Adherence to the hCG Diet Promises Success

The hCG food list may seem extremely strict but when followed a person can successfully lose a substantial amount of weight, curve their cravings, and even maintain their weight once they cease using the hCG drops or injections.  It is extremely important that when the hCG diet food list states one small apple you only eat a small apple. You do not substitute two tiny apples to create one small apple. Allowing loopholes in your diet or altering certain items will doom you to failure.

Vegetable mixing is another problem that many people think is okay. However, you must only choose to consume one type of vegetable at each meal. You cannot create a small mix of vegetables.

What Drinks are Allowed and What Quantities?

You might think that it’s okay to consume a variety of liquids per day when participating in the hCG diet but this is not the case. You must adhere to the plan to achieve success. You can consume tea, coffee, water, and sparkling water. You can drink these at any time during the day in any quantity. Ideally, you should drink at least two liters of water every day to satisfy your body’s needs and curb your cravings. Hydration is the key to flushing the fat out of your system.
