Low Calories Make Up Allowed hCG Foods
The original hCG diet plan, formulated by the late Dr. Simeon, was made up of hCG foods that are extremely low in calories. Foods such as veal, beef, chicken breast fish, some crustaceans, vegetables such as spinach, beet-greens, tomatoes and cabbage and simple fruits such as strawberries or grapefruits.
Since the hCG diet at its lowest calorie point is only 700 calories per day, hCG foods consist of what will fill up the dieter and provide the most strength to get through the low calorie days. You can also have tea or coffee in any quantity, but only one tablespoon of milk is allowed within a 24 hour period – and Saccharin or Stevia may be used as a sugar substitute.
In Kevin Trudeau’s book, “The Weight Loss Cure They Don’t Want You to Know About,” the hCG foods change a bit and seasonings are more liberally used. There are also recipes for hCG foods in abundance on the Internet. Cookbooks also now exist and the recipes don’t stray far from the ones that Dr. Simeon used, but they’re more interesting to eat.
There are even pre-cooked and packaged hCG foods that you can purchase online, such as hCG diet approved vinaigrette salad dressing, garlic breadsticks and Cajun seasoning to spice up a boring piece of meat. Some hCG foods come in “packs” that you can buy all at once and contain much of what you’ll need to spice up hCG meals.
Although Dr. Simeon didn’t recommend diet supplements in his original hCG diet plan, “Pounds and Inches,” Kevin Trudeau does recommend them in his “Weight Loss Cure” book. Some diet supplements that are recommended to enhance diet results are Homeopathic Cell Salts and Homeopathic Vitamin B-12.
It’s your choice whether you want to follow the original, “pure” plan of Dr. Simeon or the enhanced plan of Trudeau. You may want to read what’s included in each man’s diet guidelines and decide for yourself which plan is right for you. If you don’t have a lot of weight to lose, the original plan might not be so boring that you’re tempted to stray from it since you won’t be on the diet as long.
There are all types of guides and cookbooks available for purchase, online or in your favorite book store. There are also sites on the Internet that let you download as much information as you need to begin and see you through all the theories and hCG foods you’ll need while you’re on the diet.
As the hCG diet has become super popular, some companies are offering hCG foods that are perfectly proportioned, meats that are defatted and fast-frozen. They come to you in the mail, so all you have to do is pop them in the freezer and warm them in the microwave when you’re ready.
Scams are out there, so be sure you research the authenticity of the hCG foods that you purchase and that they follow the guidelines set forth by Simeon or Trudeau.
