  • Soda-Pop on the HCG Diet ... Can you drink just one a day?

    Now, if you are anything like me, soda is going to be the toughest thing to give up while on the HCG Diet. Truth be told, I used to drink almost 10 sodas per day. I know, that's a ton.

    The funny thing is, some people don't even consider drinking soda pop cheating. This is what some folks have actually told me.



    "I haven't cheated at all on the 500 Calorie Diet - But sometimes I do have a Soda"


    I guess they only think they're cheating if they eat something they're not supposed to have.

    This is the reason that I wanted to go ahead and answer this question once and for all...

    Is it cheating to drink soda on the HCG Diet?


    YES... It is!


    Diet Coke
    So if you are one of these people that tells yourself it's not, deep down you know that every time you take a drink of that syrupy goodness, even though it tastes so crisp and refreshing, you are in fact cheating.

    And I know what you are thinking...

    What if it's diet soda?

    But either way, (As violins play in the background) even if it's a Diet Coke, it is still cheating.

    Actually, the artificial sweetener that is used in a lot of these diet soft drinks out there are a big no no.

    Warning: If you are encouraged easily by others, Stop reading now!

    With that being said, a friend of mine told me that he drank a Diet Coke every morning throughout the entire HCG Diet, and he still lost close to 40 pounds during one single round.

    Now this is not something that I recommend doing. But for some reason, there are people who can do this and get away with it - While others cannot. At the same time you have to wonder how much good can this be for the long term affects of the diet.

    Sure, you might be able to cheat and still lose a bunch of weight, but will you keep it off?

    Not only that, but what about the Hypothalamus Gland and your Metabolism - Are these things really going to be fixed if you cheat?

    Honestly, I can't say for certain. But, if you are eating and drinking things that aren't allowed, the diet probably won't work to its full potential. Right?

    My thoughts are, if you are going to work this hard to lose weight, you might as well go all in. But that's just my theory.
