What Foods are Allowed on HCG Phase 3?
We get a lot of dieters asking questions like "What foods are allowed on maintenance?" or "Where can I get a HCG maintenance food list?"
Making a food list for this phase of the HCG Diet is kind of tricky since there are so many foods allowed on Phase 3, compared to the 20-some-odd foods in Phase 2. Instead of being limited, you are open to a whole world of different foods.

Choosing condiments while on Phase 3 can be hard. You're limited with sugars and starches and most store-bought salad dressings and condiments these days have BOTH! For instance, BBQ sauce.

High Fructose Corn Syrup, Vinegar, Modified Soybean Oil, Tomato Paste, Modified Food Starch, Salt, Smoke Flavor, Caramel Coloring, Sodium Benzoate, Molasses, Corn Syrup, Sugar, Tamarind, Flavor. Yuck! Several of those ingredients are not only excluded from Phase 3 of the Diet, but they are also very bad for your health in general.
