The second most asked question about the hCG diet protocol is, “What food can I eat on the hCG diet?”
We’ve broken down a list of allowed foods for the hCG diet. If you are ever in doubt, refer back to Dr. Simeons Pounds and Inches, or this list hCG diet food as a reminder.
You can use a variety of seasonings to spice up your foods, when cooking. Just read labels and avoid spices and seasoning with added sugar, fat and MSG. And you can purchase an hCG diet cookbook from the hCG Diet Store to prevent yourself from getting into a cooking rut.
A cooking rut or boredom can be a reason for diet failure.
There are a few hCG diet recipes on this site, as well as an hCG diet menu to get you started.
And don't forget hCG Diet Phase 1 Foods and hCG Diet Phase 3 Foods. Both food lists will help your hCG Diet Journey.
