    • Unfortunately I haven’t found any other diet plans for HCG I heard of a few variations but those were specifically from a doctor who’d prescribed HCG and I wasn’t given enough detail to recreate the plan.

  1. I’m on the 800 calorie diet and I was just wondering if it was ok to eat broccoli, and all thiose other vegetables you put on there

    • Based on what I’ve read it varies. Some say 1-2 cups of black coffee is okay, this is because the caffeine can help with fat burning.

      As to diet pop/soda I’ve never seen a plan that says it’s okay despite being 0 calorie drinks. That applies to artificial sweeteners as well. Also something to consider in some people artificial sweeteners can cause weight gain, this is either because of how their body handles the sweetener or the person over indulging. Just a bit of caution to consider if you choose to go that route.

      As to water it depends on what you’re doing throughout the day but it should be at least 100 ounces a day.

  2. Hi !
    im doing the hcg diet for a week now
    on the 500 calories.
    just wanted to know if i can change the diet to 800 calories in remaining time.
    is it going to effect my weight loss?

    • There will be a period where the weight loss will seem to pause as your body is readjusting to the extra calories.

  3. Was just wondering about having salad, my salad consists of lettuce, tomatoes. Cucumber, onions etc, so is this right or does it mean something else?
    Thinking this 800 might be better for me than the 500, was finding it very hardto do & stick to.

  4. DINNER DUDE in Houston offers terrific compatable hcg meals. I’ve been on hcg for a week, and I couldn’t do it without them.
