- Can vegetarians use the HCG Diet for weight loss?
- What foods can vegetarians eat on HCG P2?
1.) Can vegetarians use the HCG Diet for weight loss? Yes! There have been many vegetarians that have done this diet successfully. The average weight loss may, however, be considerably less than when following the regular HCG Diet protocol. We do have some vegetarian options and a vegetarian food list that we can email to you once you place your order.
2.) What foods can vegetarians eat on HCG P2? Dr. Simeons addressed vegetarians on the HCG Diet in his manuscript. There are some slight modifications you can use from the section ‘vegetarians’ in his manuscript (find a free download of the manuscript on the homepage). Through working with quite a few vegetarians ourselves, we have some additional tips and options.
We have also found that people are vegetarians to different degrees. The closer you can follow Dr. Simeons protocol, the better. For example, we recommend the food listed in the basic protocol first. If none of those proteins are acceptable, 1 egg and 3 egg whites or 100 grams of low-fat cottage cheese are good choices for substitutes. If the eggs and cottage cheese choices are not enough variety to make it through the protocol, then we have some other protein substitute options (certain types of Morning Star products, some specific brands of protein shakes, etc.) that have been used with some degree of success by other vegetarians.
Once you place your order, feel free to email us with your order number, and we can send you our alteration of the HCG Diet for vegetarians including the specific brands and types of products to use for best results.
