HCG Diet Allowed Foods: What You Can Eat While Losing Weight

HCG Diet

The original list of HCG Diet allowed foods has changed a little over the past 50 + years as new food and sweetener options came to market. The two most prominent features are stevia as a natural sweetener and Miracle or Shirataki Noodles to use in place of pasta. Shirataki also offers a rice shaped version at around 10 calories a serving.

You do not need to worry about making changes in your eating plan until the third day of your HCG injections. The first two days are a period called Phase 1 – the loading phase. The goal of these two days is to saturate your blood with available fat for the body to use when you cut calories on day 3.

There are no restrictions on HCG Diet approved foods for Phase 1. You can fill your plate with whatever you like and eat until you are full. You must consume a minimum of 2,000 calories a day. If you typically eat more than that, increase your intake accordingly. The goal is to eat more than usual of foods high in fat content. Do not consume an abundance of sugar as that is counterproductive to what you want to do. Desserts that are high in fat such as those on the list below are ideal.

HCG Diet foods allowed phase 1 include:

  • Pizza
  • Bacon cheeseburgers
  • Pasta
  • Fried chicken
  • Loaded baked potatoes
  • Sausages
  • Full-fat ice cream
  • Cheesecake
