  • Is it better to drink bottled water or is tap water okay to have on the HCG Diet?

    The other day one of my readers left a comment here on the HCG Diet 411 Blog. And after I read it I realized that I hadn't really talked about it too much before. So I thought that it would be a great topic to write about today.
    In their comment they asked...

    Is it okay to drink tap water on the HCG Diet - or does it have to be bottled water?

    This is a really good question, because... back when Dr. Simeons created the HCG Weight Loss Protocol, bottled water wasn't as popular as it today. Actually, there were very few stores that even stocked their shelves with bottled water back then. It wasn't until the 1990's that bottled water started to become popular. So it only makes sense that it's not included in the original HCG Protocol.

    However, you'll notice that Kevin Trudeau says that you should not drink tap water at all. The only thing is... Buying bottled water every single day can get pretty expensive. Especially during these economic times when most families are struggling.

    So I think the best thing to do for you and your wallet would be - Buy a Water Pitcher that filters the water for you. Suzy and I have one and it works great. Besides, most bottled water is just filtered tap water anyway. But I do think that you should at least filter your water.

    The good news is that most of the water pitchers with the filters in them, are pretty affordable. I think we got ours for less than $15.00 - which included the first filter. Then every couple of months you would just replace the filter. When you compare that to the cost of bottled water, it's a "No-Brainer". Especially because you are supposed to be drinking so much water on the HCG 500 Calorie Diet.

    Either way I do believe that it is important to be drinking filtered water because of all the chemicals that the water treatment plants put into our water these days.

    The main chemicals found in tap water are:
    • Chlorine
    • Fluoride
    • Other contaminants (PCBs, THMs, Heavy metals, etc.)

    The government started adding chemicals to our water, in order to kill bacteria and diseases. However, the chemicals that they use have been said to cause major health issues.

    If you are interested, you will likely find a water pitcher with filter, at places like Walmart or your local hardware store. If you want - you could even get a filter that you can attach right to your sink's faucet.

    How do you feel about the chemicals that they put in our water?
