Maintaining Proper Nutrition during an hCG Diet Program


With one of the primary concerns about the hCG Diet being nutrition, it is essential to know which foods will maximize the healthiness of the diet without exceeding the 500 calorie requirement each day. Setting up a menu before starting the diet will also help in sticking with it.

While some suggest eating a lot of fatty foods the first day or two to jumpstart metabolism, experts agree it is important to keep in mind that the best foods to eat in such a low-cal menu are proteins, fruits and veggies. Healthy eating is key in maintaining proper nutrition throughout an hCG diet.

Examples of the kinds of foods to stick with are:

  • Lean beef, chicken and seafood (no more than 3.5 oz. per serving)
  • Spinach, onions, tomatoes and asparagus, for starters (also in 3.5 oz. servings)
  • A handful of strawberries or blueberries, an apple, orange or melon, being sure to only eat it fresh
  • Season foods with herbs, cider vinegar or lemon juice
  • Teas and water are best to drink, trying for 2 liters a day (water can be flavored with stevia or lemon juice)
