Friendly Foods List - Phase 2



Here is a breakdown of the approximate calories of each food allowed during the HCG diet. As a refresher, HCG, short for Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin is a hormone found in pregnant women that when taken allows a person to survive on a low calorie diet (500 calories a day) and in which case they are able to lose on average about a pound or two a day, all while maintaining a healthy physique and not experiencing the usual hunger pains that accompany many diets. Read “How I Lost 40 Pounds in 40 Days” for more information on this astounding diet

The actual food consumption consists of lunch and dinner (no breakfast) and the following items per meal:
3.5 ounces of selected lean meats (see below)
3.5 ounces of selected vegetables (see below)
1 Grissini Breadstick or Melba Toast
Selected fruit (see below)

You are encouraged to drink lots of water (I averaged over 100 ounces a day) and you can drink all the coffee and tea you want as well as moderate levels of 0 calorie diet sodas.
