The HCG Diet and Vegetarian Cuisine

The HCG Diet was not created with vegetarian protein options in mind. Over the years, we have come up with a few options that seem to work without causing long plateau’s on the program. I also welcome my vegetarians to try certain higher protein options that have not been clinically tested over time and to see how they work with their bodies. Somethings work well for some and not for others. We medically supervise our HCG Diet Program and are sure to be there for our patients every step of the way.


Approved Vegetarian Protein Options  for the HCG DIET


We coach our vegetarian HCG Diet patients to consume broccoli and other vegetables that are higher in protein.  We like to be sure that our patients are not at all protein deficient through out the program.  Here are a list of commonly chosen and clinically tested vegetarian protein forms.  Many of these are morningstar products which are not my favorite simply because they contain genetically modified soy protein.  Protein powders that are HCG Diet friendly are another great option for the program.

  • 1 whole egg and 3 egg whites
  • ½ cup fat free, organic cottage cheese
  • ½ cup organic, fat-free Greek yogurt
  • 65 grams plain Tempeh
  • Morningstar Farms Breakfast Patties; 1 pattie
  • Morningstar Tomato & Basil Pizza Burger; 1 burger
  • Morningstar Farms Grillers original; 1 pattie
  • Morningstar Farms Roasted Herb Chick' n; 1 pattie
  • Morningstar Farms Garden Veggie Pattie; 1 pattie
  • Morning star Farms Sausage Patties



HCG Diet Friendly Protein Powders as a great Vegetarian Option for Protein


High quality protein powders that are minimally processed and contain less than 2 g of sugar and 4 g of carb are welcome on the HCG Diet as a protein option.  These are actually really tasted when blended into a smoothie using some ice and frozen strawberries. It can be an excellent way to start the day. Our favorite brands of HCG Diet Friendly Protein Powder are Sun Warrior Protein, Warrior Food Protein, Thorne Vegalite Protein and Raw Protein by Garden of Life.
