A One-of-a-Kind HCG Diet Meal Plan

  • Here Is An Entire Day Of HCG Meals All Planned Out For Your Convenience!

    Recipe Box This HCG Diet Menu Includes Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and even Dessert -- Not only does it tell you what to eat, but how to prepare it.

    However, you should keep in mind that there are few different Protocols for the HCG diet -- And although the end results are pretty much the same, the directions that the protocols have you follow are not.

    For example, the Protocol that I commonly reference does not recommend that you eat breakfast in the mornings; aside from coffee that is.

    So before you use all of the recipes below, make sure to find out if it works with the HCG Protocol that you are currently following.

    If you are using the original Protocol written by Dr. Simmons, you should skip the breakfast part of this HCG Sample Day.

    Of coarse if you do feel that this does not fit the protocol that you use, these recipes could always be prepared during Phase 3.

    Either way, we have one of our wonderful HCG Forum Members, Shawna, to thank for this delicious group of HCG Recipes that give you a great example of what a gourmet day can look like during Phase 2, aka The 500 Calorie Diet.


    "I just saw these recipes and made the Tarragon Breaded Chicken Breast for dinner tonight.  I used Rosemary instead of Tarragon because I did not have Tarragon on hand.  The Rosemary was wonderful!  I am going to use this recipe quite often because it tasted so good to me after eating plain fish, beef and chicken all week!"
