Sticking to the HCG diet protocol is quite challenging. You’ll find that you need to prepare and cook for most of your meals. But there are times when you eat out. This is somewhat possible even when you are on the hcg diet.
However, there are so many things that you need to know before you order anything.
Take time to read and learn the hcg diet protocol before dining out during your P2. It’s important that you’re aware of the different foods allowed on the diet. This way you’ll be able to determine what menu items on the restaurant you cannot order.
There isn’t really much that you can order because most foods are prohibited. And you’re limited to just 500 calories in a day only. When you go out, keep your HCG diet food journal with you. This will make it easier for you to refer to the list rather than trying to remember what’s allowed and what’s not allowed. Most of the menu option in the restaurant won’t likely work for you during your Phase 2. This is how strict the diet can be. It will be difficult for you to find a restaurant that will accommodate you.
This rules out most of the restaurant’s menu option. Another thing is your calorie intake is limited to 500 calories each day. So if you’re going to dine out you won’t be able to eat without possibly affecting your daily limit because you’re not sure with the total calorie of your menu choice.
Most of the protein choices in restaurants are cooked with fats. So even if you will order allowable protein like chicken breast, fish or beef, you still won’t be able to order it during your P2. It’s possible to dine out only on restaurants that grill or prepare your protein choices without fats.
It’s simple to just order a salad rather than a full menu. This will make them easier to accommodate you. Another option that you can order is a smoothie of your favorite HCG diet approved fruits.
You’re much better off cooking your own meals during your Phase 2. There are dozens of recipes that you can choose from in this website. And these recipes are very easy to prepare. It will only take about 30-45 minutes of your time.
Remember that the Phase 2 of the HCG diet is only 3-6 weeks long. Most find that it goes so quickly. So, you’re far better off dining out at restaurants so you won’t mess up and you’ll lose as much weight as possible.
