During HCG hormone therapy, you are calorie restricted and are supervised to make sure your body is functioning properly. As you aren’t allowed to eat much, in the effort to have the treatment be as effective as possible, you can only take two meals per day, which is a hard a fast rule if you want to gain the benefits of maximum weight loss. During each meal, you can eat one protein, one carb, one vegetable, and one fruit. There is a very regimented process for this detailing the quantity of each food group.
For the protein portion, you can have a beef, chicken breast, broil or grill veal, crab, fresh white fish, lobster, or shrimp. Moreover, you need to look for any visible fat in such food. Prohibited seafood includes eel, salmon, herring, tuna, or dried/pickled fish.
As far as Vegetable are concerned, you can eat chard, chicory, tomatoes, beet greens, spinach, green salad, celery, onions, fennel, red radishes, asparagus, cucumbers, and cabbage. Bread includes either one piece of melba toast or one breadstick.
While talking about fruits, you can opt for an orange, a handful of strawberries, an apple, or half a grapefruit. You can drink as much water, tea or coffee as you can. However, you can only take 1 tablespoon of milk per day.
Sugar substitutes can be used but sugar is strictly prohibited to sweeten even the drinks. Moreover, butter and oils are not on the menu.
