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 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.
