Tips on the HCG Diet 500 Calorie Plan

The HCG diet 500 calorie plan is based on the protocol of Dr. Simeons’ plan. The second phase of the HCG diet is the most vital stage of the weight loss program. It is when you need to cut down your calorie intake to 500 calories per day. The VLCD is sometimes confusing when you are determining what food to eat or avoid. But, you can refer to the diet food list to stay on track.

Why Choose the 500 Calorie Meal Plan on the HCG Diet?

The 500-calorie meal plan on the HCG diet produces an encouraging result in weight loss. It will also help your body shift to healthy habits that you can enjoy for the rest of your life. The 500-calorie meal plan helps you reach your goal faster than other modifications of the VLCD.

The question is; how can you possibly survive on the VLCD of the HCG diet? The HCG is not intimidating as how you think of it. If you are a beginner on the HCG diet, you can follow the VLCD without experiencing extreme hunger. Unlike other regimens, the HCG balances your calorie and avoid nutritional deficiency.

HCG Diet 500 Calorie Plan
  • Check the ingredients of the food and other products you have on the HCG diet.
  • Split your meals to have something to eat when you get hungry. It prevents you from prolonging your hunger and falling into food temptations.
  • Eat protein and fiber-rich foods every day but keep your calorie intake to avoid weight gain. Maintain proper portioning of your meal sizes to keep your calorie intake low.
  • Avoid drinking sugary beverages, alcohol, and other processed products to avoid stimulating your appetite.
  • Avoid using lotions and creams that contain animal fats as they interfere with your progress.
  • Find an activity that you like to avoid getting dull on the HCG diet. Keep yourself busy but avoid wasting energy on strenuous activities. You can incorporate some physical activities but avoid spending energy on intense workouts and bodybuilding.
  • Use herbs and natural spices instead of buying food flavorings and additives. You can also use stevia as a substitute for sugar during the HCG diet.

How Does the HCG Work during the Second Phase?

The HCG taps your abnormal fat resources and releases into your bloodstream all of the stored calories. It converts the burned fats into fuel so that your body maintains high energy regardless of eating less. It boosts your metabolic rate and curbs your hunger. When the HCG spreads in your system, it will start to suppress your appetite.

Hunger is inevitable when you skip your meals or eat unhealthy foods. You can experience starvation during the first few days of the VLCD. But, it will be gone when the HCG spreads in your system. Hunger is typical in the first week of your VLCD when you skip the loading phase.
