Can you eat broccoli and cauliflower on the HCG diet? Yes, absolutely. Apparently both of them are part of some of the recipes suggested by the makers of the HCG diet. Sadly, most of these recipes are not supplied with the injections, the recipe book will have to be purchased separately.

  • How Does the HCG Diet Work?
It works by putting people on a starvation diet. A normal, healthy diet should consist of around 1940 calories for women and 2550 calories for men. These figures are general estimates and vary slightly from individual to individual.

Either way, a healthy food intake is rarely below 1500 calories per day. While on the HCG diet, individuals are forced to survive on 500 calories. It is of little wonder that a list of supplements is required, and users are warned not to use the product for more than six week at a time, see media.bonnint.

  • The Real Question
The question should not so much be 'Can you eat broccoli on the HCG diet?', but rather 'Should you be on the HCG diet?' The injections are not cheap, and ultimately the weight-loss is a result of the extremely low calorie intake. Anyone on 500 calories a day would rapidly lose weight, with or without the additional expense.

  • Does the Weight Stay Off?
Highly unlikely. Crash diets like this usually end up with the person gaining the lost weight once the user returns to relatively normal eating. It is far more sensible to lose weight gradually, by adopting an altogether more sensible diet and healthier lifestyle.

Simply reducing sugar and fat intake, cutting portions down a little at a time and exercising regularly will have far better, longer lasting results without spending a fortune and taking the risk of making oneself seriously ill in the process.

Yes, recent research allows broccoli, cauliflower, mushrooms, brussel sprouts and zucchini. You can also use MCT oil, no more than 2 tablespoons per day.

Many people have taken broccoli and still seen results on the HCG diet..

When the diet came out in the 50's, broccoli as it is today didn't exist.  There were different types, one of which was called white broccoli (cauliflower).

Cauliflower is higher in carbs so back then, it was not included.

These days however, broccoli is a hybrid of brussel sprouts and cauliflower and is lower in carbs, so it is allowed on the HCG diet.

Yeah me too! I just started the HCG diet...I'm in the first stage of the hCG SlimXpress Tacoma Weight Loss program. Weighing in at 232 pounds was sobering. I can’t believe I let myself get to this point.This first stage of the HCG Diet means I can eat without restriction. What an unbelievable idea. I started a rapid weight loss program but today I eat pancakes for breakfast, cheeseburger with fries for lunch and dinner with ice cream twice for snack and dessert. I think I'm in heaven. The calorie load has something to do with the hCG injections and fat.However tomorrow reality hits. Ill be on a 1000-calorie restricted diet. This will require commitment and attention to my eating habits. Old patterns die hard. But I am motivated and hCG SlimXpress, Tacoma weight loss diet with the rapid weight loss benefit using hCG injections is exactly what I need: Rapid weight loss for motivation, and seeing a slimmer me will help re-program my old eating habits. Come back every day and I will keep you posted, Jenny.PS. I also keep a Vlog (video blog) on youtube!
