Foods That Stall hCG Diet


It is pretty obvious that candy, sugar, donuts, cakes, and similar foods will cause you to stall on the hCG diet. But what if you are doing everything right, not eating junk, and you are still stalled? What if you have done the hCG diet apple day and hCG diet steak day? What if you are drinking 8-8oz glasses of water and then some? What if the scale only moves with those apple days and steak days, and the second you go back to your hCG diet food, you stall?

Then, my friend it’s time to dig into what you are eating and find the offending foods.

Are you using Splenda or Equal? Splenda and Equal are great to sweeten up your hCG diet tea, and add to foods. Plus, you can cook with Splenda, but too much may stall you on the hCG diet. Consider ditching Splenda for Stevia. Stevia is a not only a natural product, but it also has a dual function as an appetite suppressant.

But I’ve already stopped using Splenda and switched to Stevia?

Are you eating eggs as part of your hCG diet food? The egg yolk is a little fat ball, and fat has 9 calories per gram. But that isn’t the really bad part about egg yolks. Egg yolks contain arachidonic acid, which is a fatty acid that is good in small doses, but too much can promote inflammation. Some dieters, who may also be sensitive to arachidonic acid, stand a good chance of a stall in their dieting efforts.

But I only eat egg whites. So what else could stall me on the hCG diet?

Humm, you’re tough nut to crack. Okay moving on.

Are you eating a lot of manmade foods? Unfortunately, food manufacturers like to add a hint of sweetness (sugar) to make seasonings and foods more appealing to the masses. Check ingredients for the following, as they are sugar by another name.

• Corn Sweetener
• Corn Syrup or Corn Syrup Solids
• Dehydrated Cane Juice
• Dextrin
• Dextrose
• Fructose
• Fruit Juice Concentrate
• Glucose
• High-Fructose Corn Syrup
• Honey
• Invert Sugar
• Lactose
• Maltodextrin
• Malt Syrup
• Maltose
• Maple Syrup
• Molasses
• Raw Sugar
• Rice Syrup
• Sacchalose
• Sorghum or Sorghum Syrup
• Sucrose
• Syrup
• Treacle
• Turbinado Sugar
• Xylose
• Sugar Alcohols
• Maltitol
• Sorbitol
• Maltitol Syrup
• Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysate
• Xylitol
• Isomalt
• Lactitol
• Mannitol
• Erythritol

WOW huge list!

Okay some of the ingredients I’ve been using are listed. What else could stall me on the hCG diet?

Well, SODA. I know you drink it because you are bored to death with water. BUT Soda is probably the #1 staller for most people on the hCG diet or any diet. Not only does it have Equal or Splenda, but also ascorbic and citric acid.

Ascorbic acid is a sugar acid often referred to as Vitamin C. Vitamin C is good, but in the synthetic form as often found in soda, it may cause you to stall. Of course the food coloring, caramel and such doesn’t help in soda, but there it is.

The citric acid can be a sensitivity issue for some people, and too many sodas can = too much citric acid.

Anything Else?

Well, good old fashion salt. Yes, you need salt. Salt, or sodium, aids in helping the body maintain homeostasis, the body’s delicate chemical balance. Too much salt will cause you to retain water, which shows up on the scale as a gain or no loss. Again, if you’ re into soda vs. water, you may want to reconsider your love affair with soda. If you are heavy handed with seasonings, then you may want to cut down on your use of salt, and check your man made seasonings for salt.

This is a lot!

But, we are not done. Another big offender on the hCG diet that causes stalls is not eating a variety of foods. Avoid eating the same meat, vegetable, and fruit for lunch and dinner, and then turning around and replaying it for lunch and dinner the next day. You have to keep variety in the hCG diet menu.

This is it right?

Well, that is tricky. You are an individual and some things may stall you and not others, so you may have to play with the allowed hCG diet foods to see what stalls you. The above are the more obvious stallers. Start from there and rule out different things while you are actively dieting.

Another thing,

Check your body fat measurements, as well as your weight. You should do this from the start, but sometimes the body may not lose weight, but the inches are coming off, aka FAT or vise versa, and sometimes everything is 100% perfect in your diet, and suddenly, a woosh happens. This is called the Woosh Fairy, and she is fickle at passing out her weight loss dreams. Read about the Woosh Fairy, it may help you understand, and know you are not alone. And she, the Woosh Fairy has a poem!

@Dez, Yeah, I am only having it once a week. Unfortunately. :( I'm VERY happy about loosing all this horrible weight and stuff, but the thing I miss the most? A BIG steak, and my olive oil. Lol. :)
@Bruna, I know what you mean!
@Bruna, PS: weight update - the scale gifted me with minus 2lbs today, after a 3 day no lost. Yeyyy!
I have had a stall and the a gain. HELP! My husband has been doing the same food and every thing and has been losing 2lbs a day. Jodi
@Jodi, Women also have natural fluctuations in weight due to hormones. So you can't compare to a mans weight loss. BUT if you are eating the same, is there something you are doing different?
Is it safe to eat diet jell-o (sugar free etc) and the miracle noodle on the first round of the HCG diet? I'm on day 10 and for the first time I am having a really hard time, craving and feeling hungry. :( So... Maybe if these things were allowed, it'd give me the feeling of "oh, cool, I can eat 'this' or 'that'" and it'd break the monotony of the foods, you know? One thing I just realized, as I have an IUD and I just stopped breastfeeding a couple months ago, I don't really have periods, BUT: I was spotting these past 2 days so this is probably one of my "hidden" periods (I have it sometimes), which could be making me crave and so. It'd be fantastic to know I can add a bit of Jell-o or the noodles to my diet. Oh, I've heard about cottage cheese as well? Or are these items only for the phase after the shots (maintenance phase or whatever you call it lol)? Cheers! :) This site is so amazing, there is SO MUCH support for us in here.
@Bruna, Periods could be a huge issue for women. Cravings, hunger, hormones which will prevent or slow weight loss.
ok, so the homepathic hcg is not real hcg right. so is hcg by prescription only? I need a good recommendation for the true product and should I even be trying to access it by the internet. I am taking a homeopathic variety and have lost but, just did the drop on a pregnancy strip and it didn't realizing im probably just starving myself and losing muscle not fat.
@renee', No homeopathic is not real hCG hasn't any hCG in it. Cannot have hCG in it. YOU can legally buy hCG on line without a prescription. YOU are allowed by FDA law to import up to a 3 months supply of ANY drug without a prescription. The hCG I have not only is real but it will test on the pregnancy test strip, comes pack in ice (cold packs) to keep it fresh. AD you get test strips!
