Cauliflower is one of the permissible vegetable choices in the second phase of the HCG diet. Aside from having low calories, it also contains fiber, vitamins, and minerals that are beneficial for weight loss. It can also serve as a low-calorie substitute for high-calorie foods, such as rice and flour. As a good source of fiber, cauliflower slows digestion and promotes feelings of fullness.
