The HCG Diet and Miracle Noodles

Miracle Noodles and the HCG Diet Protocol
Miracle noodles are a wonderful form of a noodle. Many of our patients ask us if they can have miracle noodles on the second phase of the HCG Diet. For most patients on the HCG Diet Program, miracle noodles seem to be a healthy addition to the program. They can help patients feel a sense of fullness; especially at the start of the program. However, every now and then, we will see someone stall their weight loss with the addition of miracle noodles. The reason for this is that Miracle Noodles contain soluble fiber that absorbs 5-7 times its weight in water. Miracle noodles are known to slow down your digestion and create a sense of fullness. Shirataki Miracle noodles are 100% free from calories, soy and gluten, which can be easily incorporated with HCG Diet.
If you choose to add miracle noodles into your HCG Diet program, we recommend 1/2 of a bag of miracle noodles or shirataki noodles to be used daily at the maximum. Due to the high fiber content, miracle noodles can absorb 11x their weight in water and we have seen patients gain up to3 lbs if they have not had a bowel movement before their weigh in.

MIracle Noodle Recipes for the HCG Diet
Thankfully. Tammy skye, the amazing woman who wrote THE HCG DIET COOKBOOK will be coming out with some recipes containing miracle noodles for the HCG Diet. Many of our patients will prepare a mix of vegetable, meat and miracle noodles. Many people enjoy a nice, clean stone-ground mustard as a "sauce" on the noodles. It is important to be sure that the mustard is free from any sugar or carbs and is pure ground mustard. You can also pan fry miracle noodles with a small amount of Bragg's Liquid amino's and sautee with shrimp for an HCG Diet friendly dinner. There are also some very clean pasta sauces which are a nice simple way to dress up the miracle noodles.
To make mircle noodles, open the bag and strain the contents into a collander. Rinse the noodles. Add them to boiling water for 2 minutes and they are ready to be eaten!
