Phase: Maintenance Phase Course: Appetizer, Main Course, Snack
After completing the low-calorie phase of the HCG Diet and losing a good amount of weight, you’ll want to KEEP IT OFF! Consequently, some lifestyle changes may be in order. If you’re looking to replace some of your old not-so-good-for-you favorite foods with new, healthy versions, look no further if one of your favorites is pizza!
Quick and Easy Veggie Pizza is allowed on the 1st three weeks of maintenance as long as you make sure to use a low carb wrap (5 net carbs or less) for the crust and mozzarella cheese, either regular (with 6 grams of fat) or part-skim (with 4 grams of fat) for the topping. This recipe is healthy, filling, and delicious!
