Can You Eat Watermelon on the HCG Diet?

The instructions that come equipped with the HCG diet regimen are specific. That is why most dieters reach their desired goals. The HCG shots cause rapid weight regardless of the limited number of foods from which to choose.

During the different phases of the HCG diet, there are specific fruits that you can and cannot enjoy. One of the frequently asked questions on the HCG Diet is if dieters can eat watermelon during the HCG diet. Let’s find out the answer here. 

Is Watermelon Fattening?

Watermelons are not fattening if eaten in moderate quantities. Many people claim that watermelon can actually help you lose weight, which is true when eaten in responsible portions. However, it is important to note that eating watermelon alone cannot cause rapid weight loss nor burn excess calories in the body.

Is Watermelon Allowed on HCG?

Eating watermelon is NOT permissible during Phase 2 of the HCG diet due to its sugar and calorie content. Watermelon is only permissible during the loading phase and the mid-week of phase 3 if you have any intention of quelling cravings and telling your body not to go into starvation mode.
