    • 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

    • I did the 500 calorie diet and ate broccoli and cauliflower mixed. I lost 50 pounds the first time. Im now on it again so it is ok to eat broccoli. If you could go download dr simions pounds and inches book it will help out alot.

    • 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.

    • Both add calories and olive oil while one of the healthiest fat options still adds fat so you’ll likely reduce your results. If you do go this route you’d have to make adjustments in other areas of the diet which doesn’t leave much room for adjustments.

      • the walton farms salad dressing are zero cal carbs fat etc. they only are made with water vinegars and spices.
        I lost 43 pounds using these dressings. the thousand island is great in you albacore tune.

        • I went to this company’s webpage to check out their dressings, and, they are NOT healthy in our opinion! They use Splenda/Sucralose in their dressings, so forget this brand. This aritificial sweetener has many bad side effects, go to http://www.sweetpoison.com and read about it all. I want healthy and they can make dressings without using chemical artificial sweeteners..ugh..very disappointing!

  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.

    • You can switch for sure you might stall.for a couple days but you will level.out to end up losing the same amount of weight or more

  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.

  5. Don’t follow this plan it’s north the right one cereal is not allowed at all on this diet. I have followed hcg for years and this is completely wrong nice try this one is a scam people.

    • I’m sorry Tracy, you might not realize there is more than just 1 variation of the HCG diet. While the variation you are/were on may not allow cereal that doesn’t mean other variations don’t either. Did you know there is a Mediterranean version of the diet? I’m still trying to get the full plan as the person who had lead me onto it decided not to continue the plan due to not liking Mediterranean food and the doctor had only given her the first week’s worth.

      Before crying out “scam” you may want to do your due diligence.

  6. I am type2 diabetic on insulin since Christmas 2014 and was reading an article from
    The UK that said an 800 calorie diet for 8-20 weeks could
    Cure the diabetes. I worry if it is safe to use this diet.

  7. I usually have one whole grain 100 calorie Thomas English muffin for breakfast. Could I substitute that for the 2 pieces of 45 calorie sara lee bread and not have the egg for my breakfast option?

  8. I saw that Jack O’Connell (British actor in movie ‘Unbroken’) has recently been on an 800 calorie diet. I plan to soon start this diet. I was wondering if I wanted to do this for three months, what would be a variety of things, meaning food, that I could get from a local Wal-mart? Food that is easy to pack for lunch and easy to prepare morning and night for a busy person. -Thank you.

  9. I take a lot of vitamins for heath conditions . How do we get around our Omegas and EPA/DHA supplements on the HCG diet? The diet is too long to go without our nutrients. This is the only caveat I have. Advice, please.

  10. Special K? Cheerios? Chex?! Um…all sugar filled, processed crap…ever hear of bran or wheat flakes? Sara Lee bread? Sounds like more processed white flour… Do yourself a favor and stick to whole grain sprouted English muffins or while grain cocktail bread minis (about the same calories) so you’re not starving an hour later…while grains keep you full longer, it’s basic nutrition people…

  11. I have to say I liked the 800 calorie diet. My friend did the 500 and was always hungry and she had the injections, I did the drops. So far I lost 12lbs in two and a half weeks.
