What to eat on the HCG diet

HCG recipes take planning. The HCG diet allows for 500 calories per day in the first 30 days. After that the daily amount increases to 1,000 calories.

It is important that you keep your exercise level light!

No weight lifting or intense cardio activities.

This website will provide healthy sample HCG recipes and teach you how to create tasty meals at home that adhere to this diet.

Let’s get started!

It always seems impossible until it’s done.

The Diet

You might have only 500 calories to play with the first month, but that doesn’t mean your food needs to be bland! In your HCG recipes and beyond, try spices such as salt, pepper, vinegar, mustard powder, garlic, basil, parsley, thyme, marjoram, to name a few. You may use a sugar substitute but NOT sugar.

Proteins

Beef, chicken breast, turkey, veal, fresh white fish, lobster, crab, shrimp.

Vegetables

Spinach, chard, chicory, beet-greens, salad, tomatoes, celery, broccoli, bell peppers, green beans, fennel, onions, radishes, cucumbers, cabbage, asparagus, and zucchini.

Starches

Breadsticks (grissini) or Melba toast slices.

Fruit

Apple, orange, strawberries, grapefruit. One lemon daily for juice on food or in water.

Dr. Rowser recommends the app MyFitnessPal as the perfect way to track your calories. From single-serving, home-prepared meals to grocery and restaurant items, MyFitnessPal has it all.

Dreams don’t work unless YOU do.

Helpful Tips:

Skinless, grilled or baked meats/fish are they key part of your protein during this diet. Stay clear of anything fried and be sure your meat is skinless.

Salads can be a great addition to your meal and are vital in providing essential vitamins during your diet. Stay clear of creamy, oily dressings as they’re packed with calories!

Coffee, water and tea are your best friends on the HCG diet! You can have unlimited amounts of each – but stay clear of any cream and use only sugar-free sweeteners.
