Thread: IS IT ONE MELBA TOAST OR 1 SERVING MELBA TOAST

  1. #37
    I'm having this issue as well. The store only had "Melba Snacks", which are small round pieces (4 pieces = 50 calories). I went to the company's website - and they have both Melba Snacks AND Melba Toast (1 piece = 20 calories).

    HC3 Trim says Melba Rounds ok?

    I am on day 5 of the HC3 Trim protocol (3rd LCD) and see that it calls for "5 Melba Rounds" throughout the sample meal plan. The only product I see that Old London makes besides Melba Toast is Melba Snacks. 4 of these are 60 calories and my booklet says 5=60 calories. I understand that calories aren't the only factor of importance, so I'm trying to find a definitive answer as to if my eating 4 Melba Snacks when my sample meal plan says 5 Melba Rounds is ok?
    thanks for any info!

    I ate a "serving" of melba snacks (or toast) when I needed a crunchy or needed that extra 60 calories to hit the 500.
    I didn't see any slow-down in loss on the days I ate melba.

    I never did understand how much exactly I was supposed to eat (what's "one" from the original protocol?) - so I ate them according to caloric need.

    I think it should be remembered that not everyone is following the same "protocol". for those on the HC3Trim method of homeopathic drops, it clearly states in the instruction booklet that "Melba Toast - 1 piece" or "Melba Rounds - 5 pieces" or "Grissini Breadsticks (Torini) - 4 pieces" may be eaten for a snack. The instructions are that "snacks" can be eaten "2 servings per day, not more than one in one meal or snack". So this would mean you could eat 5 melba rounds at lunch and 4breadsticks at dinner!!

    (This is in the guide book that comes with the HC3Trim program that includes all supplements & drops. It's a 42 day program with half-dropper full to be taken every 12 hours sublingually.)

    I think when people say "protocol" they mean Dr. Simeons's program which clearly states ONE melba toast or ONE breadstick to be eaten twice daily (not together).

    With all of that said, I recently experienced my first day of no weight loss (I'm on day #15 of VLCD) and today I gained 0.4lbs. I'm taking this quote from Simeons's protocol to heart: The most tiresome patients are those who start counting calories and then come up with all manner of ingenious variations which they compile from their little books. When one has spent years of weary research trying to make a diet as attractive as possible without jeopardizing the loss of weight, culinary geniuses who are out to improve their unhappy lot are hard to take. and I'm going to limit myself to ONE melba toast twice a day and see if my weight loss picks up. Although I'm pleased to be down 10.8lbs, I want to give myself the best shot at achieving my goal!

    But I'm hoping someone can answer these questions: 1) is the breadstick super skinny or kind of substantial looking - like the thickness of a Sharpie marker? I have two boxes and they look different. 2) is boxed chicken stock ok? it says fat free.

    These boards have been most helpful and I'm so glad to see people that truly care about helping each other. I tried the Nutrisystem plan and their message boards were full of hateful people who were more interested in flirting and being mean to other board members than they were about losing weight, so I really appreciate the intellectual exchange of experiences and sharing of constructive criticism.

    Good luck to everyone!

    Is just 1 Melba toast per meal meaning that you are allowed to eat 2 Melba toasts per day, that's it. You can get the round or the rectangular Melba toast. The round ones are the snack size and the rectangular are the regular ones which you are allowed to eat, but once again only 1 piece of Melba toast, not the whole little package.

    On the HCG diet you can't eat tuna at all. There are only a few types of fish that you can eat and one of them is Tilapia but definitely no tuna and also no condiments such as mayo, mustard, ketchup etc. You can't have that during the HCG diet. You can eat anything oily or with oil. The only type of liquid/sauce/condiment that you can have is Braggs Liquid Amino. It's like soy sauce but you can have that during the HCG diet and you can add it to your meats, chicken or vegetables. Then another liquid or flavor thing you can add to your meals is lime. You are allowed 1 lime per day so cut it in half and use 1 half for the first meal and the other half for the second meal. The lime will give the food, especially to the lettuce and tomatoes a really good flavor.

    I have seen some posts that the Melba Toast is no longer on protocol, because it has Molasses. Wondering if the recipe changed or if this is just from people noticing the Molasses and assuming that it should no longer be protocol?

    Its still on protocol.

    Tiny bits of carb are part of the diet. The macros of the melba still fits the parameters of fat-free and 20 calories.
