Can you mix vegetables and fruit on the HCG Diet?

Scrambled eggs with fresh spinach. You can use Kraft fat-free cheddar cheese and you won’t feel like you are on a diet.

Have you wondered if you could mix vegetables? How about fruit? Dr. Simeons was quite strict in limiting foods allowed on the hCG diet and he also limited meals to two fruit servings, two vegetable servings and two meat servings.  Here is an overview of the diet and some generally accepted exceptions.

When I first started doing the hCG diet, I thought it was OK to mix vegetables in a salad.  I lost so well, that I never quit. I have recommended this to many over the years and they have found it worked well for them, too. At first I didn’t mix any cooked vegetables, but later on I tried cooking onions and tomatoes with fish and meat.  Then I tried making a stir-fry with vegetables. It seemed to work well, too. And it sure helps with variety.

If you want to give this a try, I think you will find it works well for you, too, and it may make it easier to stick to the diet.

This picture is one I took at my son’s house.  You can make this delicious meal with one egg and up to three egg whites. (Dr. Simeons allowed one egg and three egg whites for a meat substitute.) This is scrambled eggs with fresh spinach leaves. When the eggs are almost done, add fresh spinach leaves just long enough to get soft and wilted. Spinach doesn’t have a lot of flavor unless it is well cooked. I like this quite a lot.  My daughter-in-law added bacon to this. Please don’t use bacon on the VLCD, but you can during “Maintenance.”

Scrambled eggs

Beat egg and egg whites with a Tablespoon of water. Add salt and pepper. Pour into a non-stick pan, greased lightly with coconut oil. Use low heat and pull up the edges with a spatula as it cooks to make them fluffy. When almost done, sprinkle with fat-free cheddar cheese and add in some fresh spinach leaves. Turn once or twice if needed to get the eggs done.  Serve with some fruit allowed on the diet. (Grapefruit, strawberries, orange or apple.)

From my experience and for many of those I have coached, I feel it is very fine to mix fruit and vegetables. Just try to limit the amount to an approximate serving.  For example, one serving of strawberries is supposed to be one handful or approximately 6 average sized strawberries. Have 3 strawberries and and half an orange and it equals about one serving.
