HCG Diet Food List – HCG Diet Foods In One Place
Plan your grocery shopping in accordance with the diet plan.
There are two key rules you have to abide by during the HCG diet. First, you have to buy non-fake HCG – either HCG drops for weight loss or any other form of HCG. Second, you must eat the right foods that are high in protein and low in starches and carbohydrates as such at the same time. To top it off, you are restricted to eat only 500 calories per day, which is the Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD). If you are having difficulty finding a complete HCG diet food list, this article might be of help to you, because I include all HCG diet foods that you are allowed to eat.
Please note that all the foods in my HCG diet food list are measured and weighed raw. Further instructions as to how to prepare the foods are provided below, for each respective category.

If you find it difficult to stick with 500 calories per day, keep in mind that it’s the vegetables that you should adjust to fit your daily calories. So for example, if all the foods planned to be eaten in a day excluding vegetables make up 460 calories, eat the rest, 40 cal, in vegetables.
