HCG Diet – Take Two….

Filed under: Blog,Health/Diet — THEbrittina @ 11:26 pm

So…. I didn’t want to… but I’m doing a second round of HCG with my Husband.

This diet works incredibly fast and well, it’s just a bit depressing to be on. Because you really can’t eat anything that the average person (even healthy eating person) can eat.

Thus, as a fellow food lover… This can be depressing to me.

HOWEVER, here are some tips and tricks I’ve picked up over my time bonding with the HCG Diet:

BEST MEALS:

- Green Onion Soup (Click text for full recipe)

- Lean Beef almost hamburger (Click text for full recipe)

BEST SNACKS:

- Pickles (Make sure you check the label of the Pickles you select at the store but the majority of Pickles have zero calories, zero carbs)

- Flavored Stevia, add some to your water and it’s a MILLION times better than plain boring water! Plus no calories, no sugar, no carbs! Doesn’t get better than that. I  haven’t seen this available at any supermarkets so you’re going to have to find a whole foods store for this.

- Red Delicious Apples, They are red. And trust me delicious as it comes on the HCG Diet. This is my nightly snack while I snuggle in blankets and watch bad reality TV :)

- Zevia Cola, it’s a Stevia-based Diet Coke, without the cancer causing ingredients. And it’s about the only thing I could get my HCG Doc to approve of. Zevia also comes in Grape, Root Beer, and Orange Soda. (This one you will also have to go to the whole foods store for; I have yet to see it in any regular grocery store).

- Yummy Flavored Gum ,This is great because you can have as much of this as you want! Just make sure you find sugar-free gum, there is also stevia and xylitol sweetened gum available at whole food stores. My fave is Trident White Pina Colada, it’s like I’m chewing Piña Colada, while whitening my teeth and loosing weight! Plus curbing my appetite.

- Strawberried covered in stevia or xylital or a mixture! Mmmm tastes like candy! :)
