The doctor I am seeing for the hcg said eggs and cottage cheese can be substituted for meat on occasion. Has anyone else tried this? What about pickles for cucumbers?
cottage cheese and eggs work fine for me on occasion!
Pickles are high in sodium and frequently contain some kind of sugar. Not a great Idea but it got me through a box lunch meeting, I stole e1's pickle spears . I traded cake for one of them YAY ME!! No harm no foul but def. an "emergency only" ration.
I have eggs sometimes twice a week without issue. I've found though that having 1 whole egg and 3 egg whites from fresh eggs I don't lose but if I use 1 whole fresh egg and All Whites (in a box) eggs then I lose just fine.

I was eating eggs almost every day with no problem. Either 1 egg + 3 egg whites or with 1 egg + 4 egg whites when I wanted extra protein. I always use the pure egg whites from the carton.
I haven't tried eggs, but on my last round I did fat-free cottage cheese a couple times a week towards the last half. It helped change things up and I didn't stall because of it. Yummy!

I did eggs just fine in P2, but cottage cheese didn't go well. Gained 5 lb due to my whey sensitivity.
