The diet is designed to basically have two small meals a day that are made up in this way (all foods chosen from the approved foods list):
1 protein (100 grams)
1 grissini or melba toast (note: many hCG dieters leave this item out entirely- seems to add to cravings and difficulties on the protocol.)
Same as above
Not to exceed 500 calories.
Dr. Simeons said it was allowable to spread your meal throughout the day if you like, for instance, to have your lunch fruit for breakfast instead. However, you would never have 2 fruits or 2 proteins in one sitting.
Tea, Coffee, and Water with sugar free sweeteners in any quantity is fine. I highly recommend using stevia as your sugar free sweetener as it is one of the more “natural” ones to choose from, although in the end I guess they are all processed in one way or another!
