5 hCG Diet Cooking Tips

The hCG diet, as we all know it, is one of those calorie-restricted diets. You should be counting the number of calories you consume while on the hCG diet and that is because the hCG hormone will not be able to work properly for weight loss if you consume enough calories for energy.

Now, most people who already know of the fact still do not know the best ways to prepare and cook their meals.

500 to 800 calories per day may be too low for them. Luckily, it is not that hard to make the change.

So today, I am going to share 5 hCG diet cooking tips for people who struggle to cook meals that are appropriate for the said diet plan.

  1. Protein. In all of the diets (except ones fit for vegetarians), protein is necessary. This is also true for the hCG diet. Now, most people think that protein should be in limited quantities when you’re on the hCG diet. That is true but you can actually up your protein intake without taking in the extra calories. To do this, you need to get your protein from healthy sources. Two of the best protein sources for hCG dieters include Chicken and Fish. When preparing chicken, make sure to ditch the skin as it contains loads of fat and cholesterol. Use chicken breasts and fillets and you should be fine. For the fish, you can opt for fish that are rich in Omega-3 like Salmon or Tuna.
  2. Always incorporate vegetables. Vegetables are amazing because they do not only contain a few calories but they are also packed with nutrition your body needs. The good thing about them is that you can eat copious amounts without worrying about calories. Be sure to include vegetables in almost all of the meals you’re going to cook.
  3. Fruits are also necessary. Just like vegetables, fruits are also necessary on the hCG diet. Fruits can be included on a dish or it can be eaten as a dessert. Eat fruits that are low on sugar content like Pineapple, Blueberries, Strawberries, etc.
  4. Use only healthy oils when cooking. The use of cooking oils is important in almost every dish you’re going to cook. Unfortunately, there are a lot of cooking oils that are always unhealthy for you. When you’re on the hCG diet, Olive Oil is your best friend. It contains only a few calories and they are also healthy as well. For use in salads and other things, you can use extra virgin olive oil as well.
  5. Use Stevia to Enhance Flavor. I don’t know about you but I have a sweet tooth. Although that is probably innocent, it is not good for the hCG diet. All sweets have an insane amount of sugar in them. The best way to enhance the flavor of your dishes (as well as sweeten it) is to use Stevia instead of any other sugar alternative. That is because Stevia comes from natural sources and although some variants are sweet, they do not contain calories at all.

If you are struggling to prepare and cook meals and you’re on the hCG diet, these 5 cooking tips will help you get your groove.

The hCG diet is one of the most effective diets for weight loss but you have to do key things in order for it to be successful. These cooking tips will make sure that you’re on the right path.

hCG Diet Apple Cookies

Cookies are amazing snacks that can also be good for dessert. I am the type of person who really loves to eat some sweets, especially after a heavy meal.

The hCG diet is a little bit unforgiving in terms of the number of calories you can consume in a day. It may be outrageous for some, but the 500-calorie limit per day is doable, provided that you eat the right kinds of foods.

If you love cookies, then I just have the recipe for you. In this article, I will be sharing a very nice cookie recipe that only takes a few minutes of your time to make. And you might be asking the question, “is this safe to consume in phase 2?” The answer is definitely yes!

The hCG Diet Apple Cookies is an amazing recipe that makes use of apples and cinnamon to create delicious cookies that are safe to consume no matter which phase of the hCG diet you’re currently on.

If you’re interested in trying this recipe out, here are all the ingredients that you will need:

  • Pulp from 1 apple (you can use Granny Smith Apples for better flavor)
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla powder
  • Stevia to taste
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Mix the pulp from one apple, stevia, lemon juices, and the spices together to create the cookie mixture. As you’ve probably noticed, there is no flour in the mixture. The pulp is actually the one that binds all of the ingredients together to create the cookies.
  2. Get a baking pan and line it with a cookie sheet to avoid the cookies from sticking to the pan.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  4. Bake the cookies for 15-20 minutes or until they are slightly browned.
  5. If you want to make the hCG Diet Apple Cookies for phase 3, you can modify the recipe a little bit by adding chopped walnuts or pecans and mix it with a little bit of low-fat butter.

As you’ve probably noticed from the ingredients list, there is no flour in the recipe. That is because Flour can contribute to the overall carb content and it may not be healthy when you’re on the hCG diet.

Instead of Flour, this hCG Diet Apple Cookies recipe makes use of the Pulp and the vanilla powder to create the actual cookies.

You can also see that we use Stevia in this cookie recipe. Stevia is actually a natural sweetener that is safe to consume as it contains literally no calories. It provides a lot of flavor, and depending on which Stevia flavor you use, it is up to you.

This recipe can net you 1-3 cookies depending on the size of each cookie. Each cookie will have only 30-50 calories depending on the size and it is perfectly safe to consume throughout the day (even when you’re in phase 2 of the hCG diet).

So, if you like to have a cookie recipe that is safe to consume even when you’re on the hCG diet, then the hCG Diet Apple Cookies is good for you!
