Vegetables diet calories
Here are some HCG diet questions regarding calorie intake during phase 2 of the diet.
Remember, you can always email us your questions (firstname.lastname@example.org), ask them on Facebook or give us a call on 1-888-689-3777.
How long is the phase where you only take in 500 calories?
As far as the 500 calories, the answer is 21 or 40 days, depending on whether you are doing the 21 or the 40 day plan.
What is most important, serving size or getting the exact 500 calories?
The calories are the most important.
I am confused about the vegetables; I thought I could make a salad but the diet guide says to choose one from the listed vegetables, is that all?
Dr Simeons after years of research and study found that the approved list of foods have the best overall benefit and results with the diet. That having been said, many people still mix some of the veggies into a salad and they still have outstanding success. If you chose to mix, please be sure that you do it carefully and not over extend your calorie limit.
When I ordered the HCG I did not know that I need to go down to 500 calories per day. I am unwilling to do this, what are my options?
You have a few options. Some of our doctors that we supply product to have adjusted their program for the patients to between 700-1200 calories a day. They have also modified their exercise and lifestyle. You can certainly do the same and have great results. Just be aware that the weight will not come off as quickly as 500 calories will. Still eat the approved foods and drink plenty of water. As mentioned on our site.
Can I eat eggs for dinner and if so how many eggs?
As far as eggs, Dr Simeons allowed you to eat 3 egg whites with 1 whole egg as one of your proteins when people could not eat fish or find the other approved proteins.
If I break each meal into 250 calories, the meat, toast and fruit comes to 200 calories. Do I eat 50 calories in spinach? At 6.6 oz per cup I would need to eat 7.5 cups correct?
Average serving size is 1 cup for all veggies, spinach included. 1 cup of spinach only contains 7 calories. No one ever gets fat on eating raw spinach (or lettuce or other leafy veggies). Assuming your scenario, the answer to your question would be yes. However, we would recommend that you break up the 500 calories into two main meals and then your snacks during the day. This will help you to keep your metabolism burning at a more consistent level throughout the day.

Its good that you know you have a family history of diabetes, but the best diet for a not-yet-diabetic is the same as the best diet for most people (I say 'most' because some people have very odd metabolisms)
Just switch to a lower glycemic diet. Moderation is the key... eat more vegetables and whole grains, less processed food, and don't worry too much about an occasional treat. Same with your dad, except that he needs to watch the treats more closely.
Weight gain has more to do with diet2006-10-13 18:46:02 by DjArcadian
Weight gain/loss is 70% diet and 30% exercise. You don't gain weight merely from less exercise. You could sit on your ass for an extra year and not gain a pound if you adjusted your diet accordingly. Usually limiting yourself to around 1800 calories a day give or take.
Examine your diet. Record calories and see how much you're consuming. After figuring that out try and adjust your diet to reduce the calories. I usually eat a lot of lean meats mixed with lots of vegetables. It's very healthy, fills you up and keeps the weight in check.
Bicycling may not be as aerobic as running but it's certainly not the cause.
