hCG Diet Phase 2

After the 2 day load you start the diet portion of the hCG diet. The foods you eat are very specific hCG diet foods per the Pounds and Inches manuscript.

You will be in Phase 2 for either 26 days or 40 days. Then the last the last 3 days, either day 23 or day 37 you will stop taking your hCG drops. injections or pills, but continue to eat 500 calories of the hCG diet foods. This allows the hCG to leave your system. Not allowing 3 days will cause you to gain weight rapidly.

As the diet has evolved and become popular, others have added other hCG Diet foods to this list or increased the caloric intake. Dr. Simeons’ hCG diet food list is very specific, very limited, and very low in calories, 500 per day. The hCG allowed food is, NO fat, VERY low carb and HIGH protein. This allows for optimal fat loss from the body in the shortest amount of time.


• 2 servings of meat a day
• Do not combine the servings.
• Each serving is 100 grams or 3.5 oz.
• Occasionally eggs
• 1 whole egg and 3 whites poached, boiled or even scrambled
• Or 100 grams of skimmed milk cottage cheese


• Do not mix or combine vegetables.
• 2 servings a day
Dr. Simeons doesn’t give an amount of hCG approved vegetables. The popular consensus is 2 cups per meal before cooking.


• 2 servings of fruit
• Do not combine the servings.


• 2 servings of bread a day
• Either Melba Toast or Grissini breads
• Do not combine the servings.


• Water is essential, a minimum of 8 – 8oz glasses a day.

  8. I am wondering if I must have a different protein for lunch and dinner. I really don’t like meat and mostly chicken. Sometimes I can make myself eat steak or fish but it’s hard and I gag a lot. So I guess, is it ok if I eat just chicken?

  9. Michaela, my doc told me no oranges and no beef, because beef in america is too fatty. So try cutting that out and see what happens. And you have to have the same exact thing for lunch and dinner.
