Spice Up Your Life on the HCG Diet, but be careful. Some spices will sabotage you results on the HCG diet.

  • Mrs. Dash can slowing your weight loss to .2 lbs per day.

PLEASE heed our advice on using only HCG approved spices! It's not only us saying this, this is what Dr. Simeons said in his original manuscript.  

In general fresh, simple herbs and spices are allowed on the HCG diet, but it's hard to find spice mixtures that do not hinder weight loss can be very tricky to find.

Here's a HCG approved spices list and some quick tips to help you find safe and allowed seasonings!

Tips for choosing spices for the HCG diet:

  • Avoid most store-bought, premixed spices because they usually contain oils, sugars, fruit peels, or other ingredients that are not allowed. 
  • Chemical additions in spices can slow down your weight loss, so look for all natural seasonings for the HCG diet.
  • A good tip for choosing spices is... If you can't read an ingredient outloud, stay away from it... it is probably NOT safe for the HCG diet.
  • Always check your ingredients (NOT just the nutrition facts) for the spices you are considering.
  • Specifically, check the ingredients list for any oils, fruit juices, starches, vegetables, maltodextrin.
  • Only use un-sweetened spices or spices sweetened with stevia. Any words ending in -ose, -tol, or -dextrin are NOT allowed in your spices.
