This is actually a question I posed to the YouTube community after my first round on HCG Injections. If you read all the comments you’ll notice the consensus is that most do not include any coconut oil they may have as part of the 500 calories, rather it is eaten on top of the 500 calories. This is with good reason in my mind as the 500 calories is just enough so as not to cause you to become nutrient deficient during the protocol. Not that coconut oil doesn’t have nutrients, but since it’s a fat and therefore a super calorie dense food, using it as part of your 500 calories would mean you are now eating a lot less regular food while on the diet- probably not a good idea (I’m seeing visions of myself carrying around 1 breadstick all day waiting for the best time to eat it.)
I must add I have since stopped supporting the idea of having coconut oil on the diet- I just feel too leery about it’s effects. One may still lose weight, but I’m concerned that it is causing excess muscle loss. Once I started tracking my body fat in addition to my scale weight, I realized that scale weight is certainly not always telling the whole story, especially once you combine the hormone with deviations to the original protocol. Caution is in order. I don’t have major proof of this, but based on my experiences, I tend to lean towards believing Dr. Simeons and avoid ALL fats on the diet. But don’t take my word or it….go research it yourself!
