New Food/ Drink Menus on 800 Calorie HCG Diet
As 2018 starts the HCG dieter will have hundreds of new products to chose from for both lunch and dinner. I have reviewed many new products introducing them into my office HCG patients in Miami. I kept the total calories below 800 and all have 2 or 3 sugars or less. There are many new ideas that fit into the HCG Diet Protocol with low fat and net carbslower than 7 grams. The newest addition are the vegetable substitutes for rice, pasta and potatoes made from Cauliflower and Zucchini.The can be added either as fresh cauliflower and zucchini or from the new frozen preparations. Hard to find products including these products, some wraps, zero sugar yogurt can be purchased from Amazon Fresh or Prime. See the links on my website for easy purchase.
Japanese Foods in the 800 Calorie HCG Diet
One of the overlooked sources of great food for the 800 calorie hCG diet is the addition of Japanese foods. Not all Japanese foods have to be made with rice or have high sugar sauces. Rolls made of fish, avocado and wrapped in cucumbers and Spring Rolls that are not fried make great additions to the HCG diet. These can be lunches or dinners.Here are three examples, no carb sashimi, fresh spring rolls (not fired) and Kanni Sushi with cucumbers, avacado and fish:
- Breakfast: 6 selections, high in protein
- Lunch: soups, wraps, protein, salads
- Dinner: soups, salads, vegetables, proteins
- Snacks: more than 25 selections
There are many great choices for lunch on the HCG diet. The cornerstone of this meal is protein, such as fish, chicken, meat, eggs as well as fruit and vegetables. Even fast food restaurants offer salads that with a little care and eliminating the dressing can make great lunches. The are two wraps that also are appropriate for the HCG diet.
Here are the choices for lunch, followed by fast food choices and then recipes for lunch all for phase 2 of the HCG diet. Note in the menu below you can have your choice of a protein including tuna, fish, chicken, beef or fish, a wraps with vegetables and protein (no mayo), fruit, large salads.
Fast Food Lunches on 800 Calorie HCG Diet
Fast Food Restaurants also provide some fast, low calorie and easy lunches. This includes most salads, but grilled chicken can also be eaten as long as their are no french fries or bread. Even a hamburger could work, but remember no bun. Here are some of salads at McDonald’s, and Wendy’s – remember no dressing or croutons.
Jimmy Johns Low Carb Unwhich on the HCG Diet
Jimmy Johns is a national fast food restaurant selling subs. Recently they introduced the UNWHICH which is a low carb wrap substituting lettuce wraps for the bread. Calories for the 8 inch wrap can be form 87(turkey) to 215 (Italian). With a little care you can eliminate both the Mayo and bread and save hundreds of calories and carbs. Known for their fast delivery (less than 15 minutes in most locations) give them a try, especially for lunch in the office.
