800 Calorie HCG Diet for 2017 Updated for Diabetics
The HCG Diet has been around for more than 50 years. Dr Simeons in his book, Pounds and Inches, first described the diet. His version consisted of mostly protein and vegetables and a few fruits. There were almost no prepared products for diabetics in the 1950’s.Diet products have changed in the past 55 years especially since 2004 when the low carb craze exploded with new ultra-low carb products.
Endocrinologist and internist, Dr Lipman has treated diabetes for more than 30 years in his office in Miami, Fl. When the oral version of HCG became available he offered it to diabetics. They lost weight safely and had dramatic falls in their blood sugar. Why? Because his 800 Calorie HCG Food protocol is the original Dr Simeons’ protocol with added products, many made for diabetics– -all zero or nearly zero sugar and fat.
Numerous food products have been produced for diabetics and used safely in the past 15 years.
Adding New Foods to the HCG Plan for Diabetics:
One of the criticisms of the HCG diet has been the boredom, the need to do considerable food preparation and the failure to include many new products. Remember, Dr Simeons invented the diet in 1953! That was a long time agol Many new products we have today were not present then.
My daily food plans contains many foods and products not in the usual diet. I found these foods by speaking to my patients on the HCG diet, monitoring their hunger while they make the changes.

3. 3 grams of fat per portion or less
