Some companies that sell HCG will try to make the HCG Diet seem more appealing by allowing other foods such as green beans, cauliflower, blueberries, turkey, etc. Please be aware that these foods are NOT allowed on Phase 2 of the HCG Diet.

HCG Protein Options:

  • Veal
  • Lean Beef (such as filet mignon, sirloin steaks, extra lean ground beef)
  • Bison
  • Chicken breast (must be boneless, skinless chicken breast with all fat removed)
  • Fresh white fish (such as sea bass, burbot, cod, pock, tilapia, whiting, orange roughy)
  • Lobster
  • Crab (must be fresh crab, no imitation crab allowed)
  • Shrimp
  • Canned tuna (must be packed in water)
  • All meats must be weighed to 3.5 oz/100g.
  • They should be weighed raw and have all visible fat trimmed.
  • It is important to cook the meat using no butter, oil, or other form of fat (i.e. boil, grill, bake, use non-stick cookware, etc.).
  • You can order meats from us that are already prepared, measured, and de-fatted.

HCG Vegetable Options:

  • Spinach
  • Chard
  • Chicory
  • Beet-greens
  • Green Lettuce (iceberg, romaine, bibb, Boston)
  • Celery
  • Fennel
  • Onions
  • Red radishes
  • Tomatoes*
  • Cucumbers
  • Asparagus
  • Cabbage
  • The vegetables may be eaten raw or cooked.
  • If you choose to cook your veggies, remember you must do so without using any butter, oil, or other form of fat.
  • You can steam, bake, or sauté in a non-stick pan.
  • You cannot mix vegetables on the HCG Diet, for instance you cannot have 1 cup lettuce tops with a few tomatoes and cucumbers. Only one type of vegetable is allowed per meal.
  • Your vegetable serving size is not specifically restricted. In general, participants can eat an unlimited amount of one vegetable with their protein until feeling full.  However, tomatoes and onions are higher in carbs than the other selections, so you may want to limit these selections to 1 large or 2 small if you feel your weight loss is slowing down.
