Guide to the Hcg Diet *Expanded* Foods List

What is the expanded version of the Hcg Diet food list? This list is based on the original protocol food list, as described by Dr. Simeons, however it is expanded to include specific variations of the foods themselves and also includes calorie count for tracking and maintaining the 500 calorie limit.  This detailed list of ALL foods allowed on the original Hcg Diet protocol, including calorie counts, protocol guidelines and answers to frequently asked questions.

This is the expanded version of the original HCG Diet foods list described in the Dr. Simeons Hcg Diet Manuscript. See also:

Quick Tips for Eating Approved Foods on the Hcg Diet

  1. The above Hcg foods are calculated without any sauces, butter or dressings. These condiments are not recommended unless they are homemade with Hcg diet-approved ingredients. (See, Hcg Diet Recipes for suggested sauce recipes.)
  2. Beef should all be very lean, at least 95% fat free.
  3. Choose fish whenever possible to keep calories lower, and increase vegetables.
  4. Watch vegetable portions to keep calories and carbohydrates down.
  5. Include vegetables whenever possible, and use them to make up calories if you are short at the end of the day. For example, at the end of the day, you realize you have only had 400 calories (it happens often) then it is acceptable to increase your vegetable portion to meet your calorie goal if you are still hungry.  Remember also, that vegetables have amazing health benefits and this is a great opportunity to learn to love them.  Explore spices and seasonings for new Vegetable recipes and make these a staple for your diet and beyond.
