Choosing the Right Meals for the HCG Diet

Many people when they begin the HCG diet program struggle to choose the correct food for the program. Though guides, like the one my HGC provides, can be of tremendous help, these do not always tell the whole story. Food choices can often make or break the various phases of the HCG diet, so it’s important to keep this in mind when beginning the program. Certain foods should definitely be avoided. Things like ground beef and other beef products in general contain a lot of various hormones. As a result, these can significantly impact the total weight loss users achieve while on the HCG diet program.
