  • Is It Possible For Vegetarians To Lose Weight With The HCG Diet?
    It's no secret that protein is a key component of the HCG 500 Calorie Diet Protocol. But for vegetarians eating meat is just not an option. So I guess that means that vegetarians are out of luck when it comes to this diet, right?

    Wrong -

    Although it's not as easy for them, it is possible for vegetarians to use the HCG Diet. Actually, I was reading Dr. Simeons Pounds And Inches the other day, and I came across this little snippet on the topic.

    This is what Dr. Simeons says about vegetarians on the HCG Diet...

    Strict vegetarians such as orthodox Hindus present a special problem, because milk and curds are the only animal protein they will eat. To supply them with sufficient protein of animal origin they must drink 500 cc. of skimmed milk per day, though part of this ration can be taken as curds. As far as fruit, vegetables and starch are concerned, their diet is the same as that of non- vegetarians; they cannot be allowed their usual intake of vegetable proteins from leguminous plants such as beans or from wheat or nuts, nor can they have their customary rice. In spite of these severe restrictions, their average loss is about half that of non vegetarians, presumably owing to the sugar content of the milk.

    Now even though I have read the HCG Protocol before, I wasn't 100% clear on this topic. So after I re-discovered this information, I decided to do a little more research online and I found a bunch of other good stuff as well.
