HCG Diet Meal Plan

The HCG diet involves a combination approach of a low-calorie diet and regular injections of HCG hormone. The HCG hormone, which occurs naturally in pregnant women, helps the body lose weight efficiently and quickly. As the hormone spreads in the body, it can suppress hunger and prevents muscle loss.

During the second phase of the HCG diet, you will start to eat 500 calories per day as a recommended meal plan of the HCG diet. The calorie cutdown ensures that you lose pounds and reach your weight loss goal. For the meal flow, start your day with a cup of coffee or tea for breakfast. Then, you will eat lunch and dinner at normal times. Both meals may be chosen from a list of specific foods that do not vary throughout the diet.
