An HCG diet weight loss plan combines HCG hormone and a very strict diet plan. The plan allows you to limit your intake of calorie to 500 calories a day. The food options are limited. You are allowed to have a serving of protein, fruits, veggies and a very small portion of carbohydrate on the HCG Diet. The proteins are mostly consists of leaner meat such as chicken, turkey and fish.
During your very low calorie diet, you are to cut out all forms of sugar and starches. This includes bread, cereals and pasta because of their high starch content. However, there are two carb options that you can have during your 500 calorie diet. These are the Grissini Breadstick and the Melba toast.
Melba toast or Grissini Breadstick?
It’s a matter of personal preferences. What’s important is that you’ll watch your consumption of these two carb choices. A huge number of hcg dieters who have tried both of these carb options preferred the breadstick over the toast. The protocol calls for two servings of carb per day. That’s one carb option per meal. You can have one toast for one meal and one breadstick for the other meal. If you want, you can use them to mimic croutons over your salad or top them with your chicken.
