Planning Your hCG Menu
You’ve decided to go for the hCG weight loss plan to lose those unwanted pounds finally and forever. That means you’re now faced with planning an hCG menu that you can stick to while taking hCG hormone injections, oral drops or pills.
The hCG menu plan according to Dr. Simeons’ protocol for rapid and permanent weight loss is restrictive, utilizing only 700 calories per day while you’re taking the hCG hormone. Following the menu plan is critical for the success of the diet, so planning the hCG menu is one of the most important tasks you must perform.
An hCG menu may be restrictive, but if you have enthusiasm and determination for this weight loss plan, your attitude can help you over the hurdles and get you to your ideal weight. Keep thinking that the radical part of the diet only lasts for 21 days – then, you’ll be primed and ready to enjoy your weight loss success for the rest of your life.
Fortunately, there are many guides and help-sites online that can get you through the menu planning and any other questions or concerns you may have about the hCG weight loss plan. Online sites are a good way to familiarize yourself with the hCG menu plan, so be sure and take advantage of all they offer.
According to the prescribed hCG menu protocol, you should eat as much fat-laden food as possible during the first 1 to 3 days of the diet. This includes avocados, cream sauces and desserts with high fat content. This is the fun part of the diet and sets up your metabolism for what’s to follow.
The next part of Phase 1 of the hCG weight loss plan includes daily dosages of the hCG hormone which can be accomplished by using injections, oral drops or pills. This portion of your menu plan will include a drastic drop in calories and you’ll be restricted to certain foods from specific food groups.
A typical hCG menu plan for breakfast might include 1 egg, plus 3 egg whites either boiled, poached or raw. Tea or coffee is acceptable, but without sugar (you can use Saccarin or Stevia) and only 1 tablespoon of milk. Lunch might include 100 grams of veal, beef, chicken breast, white fish, lobster, crab or shrimp. If you’re a vegetarian, you can substitute meat with skimmed milk or cottage cheese in the advised amounts.
Drinking a minimum of two liters of liquid per day is essential and vegetables for each meal should be eaten alone and not in combination with others. Variation is the key to planning a successful hCG menu that will lead to all the rewards you’ll receive on the hCG weight loss plan.
