HCG Diet Menus


Morning: You may have as much organic coffee, green tea, Yerba tea, or Oo-long tea as you desire. NO Sweeteners are allowed! If you cannot live without a sweetener, we recommend Stevia. You can also use Truvia, which is the newest natural sweetener available at grocery stores. You may use one tablespoon of milk daily (usually for hot tea or coffee). For your morning meal, you may have one of the following:

  • Grapefruit
  • Apple
  • Handful of strawberries or any berries
  • Orange

Apples and grapefruits work best with the program because of their cleansing properties. If you have a history of hypoglycemia or low blood sugar, you will need a small amount of protein to your morning meal, such as 2 to 3 egg whites.

Mid-day/Lunch: You may eat between 100 to 150 grams (approx 4-6 oz.) (use the palm of your hand as your guide) of one of the following items:

  • organic beef or steak
  • organic chicken breast (skinless)
  • veal
  • any white fish
  • any shell fish (shrimp, scallops, etc.)

Also, try to avoid farm-raised fish and buy wild fish whenever possible.

In addition to what meat you choose, you may have a large handful (about 1 cup) of one of the following:

  • organic leaf lettuce
  • spinach
  • tomatoes
  • celery
  • asparagus
  • cucumbers
  • fennel
  • broccoli
  • cabbage

These can be mixed together, eaten raw, steamed or grilled. NOTE: If you do mix together, you still cannot have more than a large handful. NO SALAD DRESSING MAY BE USED. You can, however, use a teaspoon of olive oil and you may have all of the garlic, lemon, vinegar, black pepper, and sea salt that you would like. You can also use a spray dressing like Ken’s. One to two squirts only! The only vegetables you cannot eat are the sweet ones like peas, carrots and corn. Try to stick with green vegetables. You are allowed up to three fruits a day, which can be used as snacks in between meals.

Evening/Dinner: Follow the same meal plan as mid-day/lunch. HOWEVER, it is best not to have the same meat, fish, or vegetables that you did for lunch. Mix it up – variety is the spice of life.

NOTE: Eat everything as described. DO NOT SKIP MEALS! The people that skip meals do not do as well on the program. You will not benefit or lose any extra weight by doing so. You will not lose more weight by simply eating more vegetables and eating less meat or protein. Always have a protein and a vegetable with lunch and dinner. Those who only have a protein for lunch don’t do as well on the program. Remember your body needs this healthy fuel even though you’re getting 2000 calories from your fat every day. Just follow this protocol, and it WILL work for you.

HCG Diet Plateau Breakers

On the HCG Weight Loss Program, as with any weight loss program, it is not uncommon to hit a plateau where your weight remains the same for several days in a row, even though you are being meticulous in following the HCG Diet Plan to the letter. Don’t be discouraged! There are many reasons for this to occur. Usually when you are losing weight and then stall, it is because you have a reached a set point. A set point is any weight which you maintained for a number of years. When you are losing weight on the HCG Diet Program and you reach a set point, it may take a few days and much patience and perseverance to begin to lose weight fast again. Here are a few HCG Diet Plateau Breakers:

  • Increase water intake to 2 – 3 quarts per day.
  • Try increasing your protein by .5 ounces.
  • Eat 6 apples only 1 day.
  • Cut American beef down or out.
  • Check all condiments for any form of sugar. ‘Garlic Salt’ may list sugar as an ingredient.
  • Any seasoning salt or seasoning product must be carefully checked.
  • Stop mixing vegetables.
  • Don’t eat breadsticks.
  • Make sure there are no additives in chicken or other protein sources – many times these are injected with some form of sugar even in the grocery store.
  • Have you reached your Ideal weight? Are you in the suggested weight range for your height and build? Are you also hungry and not feeling as good, etc? It may be time to stop losing and start on Phase 3 and 4.
  • For women, your cycle may be coming in to play — review Dr. Simeons’ manuscript.
  • Have you changed or started one or more medications? The change may just cause a few days delay as your body adjusts, but you may want to consult with your physician to possibly change again or go back to the previous medication if the plateau continues and all plateau breaking methods fail.
  • Review the manuscript for serious plateaus (5 days or longer). While the manuscript reports ‘apple days’ as purely psychological, many participants report a loss of 2 pounds the day after an apple day.
  • Since the protocol says you are not required to eat all the food each day, you may consider dropping one or both of the ‘breads’ and/or one of your fruits, etc.
  • Consider adding a brisk walk, some yoga, or any type of 15 minute activities to your day a few times a week–anything that raises the heart rate throughout the day. The activity increases your metabolism and may increase your rate of loss. Exercise is barely mentioned in the protocol. Our interpretation is that exercise is good for everyone; however, it is simply not required to successfully lose weight on this protocol. That being said, we have observed participants who have a physically active job, such as a waitress, where the participant seemed to maintain a slightly higher daily average weight loss than those who did absolutely no physical activity.
  • Make sure you are getting enough sleep. More than a few participants have reported being up late and getting up early and the scale reflecting little to no weight loss. However, simply weighing again an hour or so later (without eating or drinking anything) reveals a drop on the scale of up to 2 pounds. This suggests that routine and adequate sleep can effect what the scale registers. While this probably doesn’t actually affect the rate of loss, it can cause discouragement and, therefore, routine and exceptions such as being “up late and getting up early” should be kept in mind.
  • Try including 2 Tbsp of apple cider vinegar (ACV) to your daily routine. We you take the ACV diluted with water or juice, but not to spread out throughout the entire day as this has been shown to have negative effects on teeth enamel. Many resources claim extensive benefits due to ACV intake, particularly increased weight loss; however, we do not recommend taking ACV undiluted.

“Fried” Chicken

  • 3 1/2 ounces of chicken
  • 1 tablespoon of milk
  • Garlic melba toast

Even Colonel Sanders would be proud of this dieter’s dream — fried chicken! Start by crushing the melba toast in a food processor and gradually add in some sea salt and pepper. For an herbaceous punch, add in whatever other seasonings you have laying around. (Parsley? Great. Basil? Sure. Fennel fronds? Incredible.) Dip the chicken in milk and coat with the toast-crumb-herb mixture. Cook in a nonstick pan until browned.

  • 2 cups of asparagus
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced

Smother your chicken in fresh lemon juice and place in a bowl with the rest of the lemon guts. Add in a clove of minced garlic, rosemary, and sea salt and pepper. Cover and chill for about 4 hours. Grill the chicken until done. If you feel more comfortable baking or frying the chicken, don’t hesitate to do so. Place the asparagus on the grill simultaneously. Squeeze a little fresh lemon juice over the veggies mid-grill. Serve hot!

Leslie O. of Albany, NY writes:

As a professional chef, I can assure I love good food. I grew up in the “the more butter – the better” school of cooking. Well that was OK when I was younger and ran the extra calories off by cooking all day and dancing all night. Now that I’m a wee bit past 40, it’s just not working any more. I’m just tired all the time, and the more tired I get, the more weight I gain. The more weight I gain, the more tired I get. My mother (I hate to admit it) turned me on the HCG Weight Loss Albany NY. I was afraid I’d never survive on 500 calories a day, but my clinical adviser reassured me that my body would draw on my fat reserves to meet my needs. That’s exactly how it works. My hips and thighs have lost so much fat … I can fit in my skinny jeans. Bon appétit HCG Weight Loss Albany NY, Leslie O.

Maggy B. of Charleston, SC writes:

I am a proud GRITS (Girls Raised In The South)! Unfortunately, I had way to many bowls of grits and pieces of buttered cornbread wrapped around my middle and backside. I was fat and happy, but my doctor wasn’t. I kind of ignored my doctor until my older sister had a heart attack. That was my wake-up call. I tried a few of the usual weight loss programs, but they were too slow or not effective at all. I lost weight on some of them, but I gained it right back. I found an article in a magazine about HCG Weight Loss Charleston SC, and I decided to give them a call. I’m really glad I did. I lost about 30 pounds on the first round, and I’ll be starting another round in a couple of weeks to try to lose another 20 pounds. I know it will work, and it was so much easier than I thought it would be. Y’all are wonderful at HCG Weight Loss Savannah GA, Maggy B.

George P. of Savannah, GA writes:

Just out of school, I decided I wanted to see the world as a carnie. Yep, that’s right – I worked in the traveling carnival. It was fun. I met some interesting folks. I lived on funnel cake and carnie food – anything on a stick. When we rolled into Savannah, I knew I’d never leave. I met the girl of my dreams. We both wanted to shed a few pounds for our wedding and decided to try HCG Weight Loss Savannah GA. I’m really glad we did. My wife looks wonderful, and she was so happy in her beautiful pink wedding gown. I wore a matching tux, and I felt great with my waist down to 32 inches.

My body image is critically important. I’m in the public eye, and if I gain weight, I could lose my job and my career.

She said some of her patients had tried HCG Weight Loss Orlando FL, and they were keeping the weight off. I gave them a call and checked out their website.

Johnny T. of Nashville, TN writes:

I’m a big guy. I was a 12 pound baby. Carrying a few extra pounds was no big deal to me, but it was to my insurance company. My wife and I had a couple of kids and getting life insurance became a priority for us. The insurance company said I was obese and wouldn’t write me a policy. I had to do something quick. I didn’t want to go weigh in at some meeting with a bunch of housewives every week. My wife saved me (“again” she said) by finding HCG Weight Loss Nashville TN. I was pretty darn sure I’d never survive on 500 calories a day, but it was easy, and man that weight came off fast. I’m not obese any more, we have our insurance policy, and I feel great! I kinda like this new body, and I’m following the plan to keep the weight off. Thanks for everything HCG Weight Loss Nashville TN
