Many people think that because the HCG diet is one that is extremely restricted and only allows 500 calories a day that there is no way that there can be any decent meal options available to them. Actually, you would probably be really surprised at just how much food you can eat in the run of a day while you are on the HCG diet. There are all kinds of delicious meal options available to you, and because you have so many different options, this is not a diet that you are going to get bored of easily.
What You Can Eat
There are a number of food options that you can have for lunch and dinner every day when you are on the HCG diet. There are also all kinds of delicious recipes you can use to make sure that you actually enjoy the meals you are eating when you are on the HCG diet. Here are a few of the meal options that are available to you:
· Salads: There are a number of delicious vegetables that you can eat while you are on the HCG diet, and you can mix them up for many different salads. One tasty choice is a radish salad, which is super easy to make. All you need to do is slice up some red radishes and mix with minced onion, parsley, amino, and a little bit of salt and pepper to taste. For dressing, use a little bit of lemon juice (you can use the juice from one of those plastic lemons…you will get more from it, and it will stay fresher longer).
· Entrees: There are many meats and fish options you can have while you are on the HCG diet. One delicious option is Lemon Pepper Fish. All you need is 100 grams of white fish, juice from half a lemon, a couple of cloves of garlic (minced), salt, pepper, cumin and turmeric. Mix all of the ingredients and marinate the fish in it for an hour or longer. This is a really quick meal that you bake in the microwave at a temperature of 400 for about 10 minutes. When the fish is cooked, squeeze a little bit of lemon juice over the top.
· Desserts: Yes, you can have desserts when you are on the HCG diet, but the desserts must be made from healthy ingredients and prepared in a healthy way. Apples are an important part of your meals on the HCG diet, and you can make tasty desserts with them that have no additional calories. One thing to try is coring an apple, then placing it in a glass baking dish. Sprinkle the apple with cinnamon and nutmeg, and add a little bit of honey or artificial sweetener such as Stevia. Bake at 350 degrees until the apple is soft, about 20 minutes or so.
These three recipes make up an entire meal, and as you can see, this is going to be a pretty filling meal. Make sure that in addition to eating the foods that are required on the HCG diet that you are also drinking plenty of water, and if you get cravings, try using HCG Boost or HCG Natural, which are both appetite suppressants.
