Although what you eat is very particular while on the HCG Diet, it doesn't mean you can't eat good. With the approved foods (lean meats, fresh fruits and vegetables, Stevia, approved seasonings) and some good resources providing recipes you won't even feel like you're limiting yourself to very healthy non-fat meals.
For example check out the sample HCG diet plan below. It offers variety while fulfilling the HCG diet requirements. And maybe most importantly...it tastes good!
Breakfast could be limited to Pomegranate herbal tea sweetened by Vanilla Stevia. The Pomegranate herbal tea carries a lot of extra healthy benefits and you'll be surprised how full you'll feel after a cup of sweetened tea. For lunch you can have some grilled chicken over 2-3 cups of lettuce, half a grapefruit and some Melba toast. That gives you your protein, your fruit, your starch and your vegetable. Now for dinner you can have grilled fish (use your favorite no carb seasonings), steamed cabbage with salt and pepper and some strawberries enhanced with vanilla stevia sweetener drops.
For breakfast on day two go ahead and have half a grapefruit. Make sure to sweeten it with Stevia and add a flavored herbal tea to the morning, as well. When it's time for lunch have the other half of your grapefruit. Grill some chicken with onions and celery and peppers along with appropriate seasonings. Let it cool for a minute and then shred the chicken. Take lettuce leaves and use the chicken/veggie mixture to create a lettuce wrap. And don't forget to add in your Melba Toasts, they can serve as "chips" to scoop up any left over chicken mixture. For dinner go ahead and have some grilled fish. Roast some asparagus in the oven as well. Tonight go ahead and have an after dinner snack. An apple will be perfect.
Have an apple with your herbal tea for breakfast. Put a very lean roast in the crockpot to cook for several hours (it should be ready in time for dinner). Include onions and celery and seasonings. For lunch have some chili). It will give you your protein and vegetable and goes perfectly with your 2 Melba Toasts. For dinner your roast should be ready. Remember to control your portion size and make sure to save your leftovers in single serving containers. With your roast have 1-2 cups of salad, and a warm cinnamon apple for dessert. (Just sprinkle cinnamon on cut apples and warm them up in the microwave. It's a fabulous homeopathic HCG appropriate dessert).
As you can see if you think ahead of time you won't struggle to incorporate all the foods at the necessary time and you won't feel that you aren't getting enough to eat. The simplicity of the HCG diet plan is one of the things that make it such a great success with many dieters so stick to simple while incorporating just enough variance to keep you satisfied. And don't forget to drink water constantly! Please check out our HCG Diet Recipe section.
