About my Blog

I was extremely skeptical of this diet until my reproductive endocrinologist suggested I do it since nothing else had worked to allow me to ovulate in 9 years. I started ovulating immediately after doing the 40 days of Phase 2 and got pregnant within 2 months! Not to mention I lost tons of weight too! This diet also allowed me to lose the baby weight.

HcG diet recipe phase 2 P2: "BREAKFAST" TACO

I know, I know what you're going to say. That corn tortillas aren't on Dr. Simeon's original protocol. Here me out. One corn tortilla is 50 calories. Because I'm gluten free anyway, I can't have a melba toast. So occasionally I sub a corn tortilla (or half of one) for melba toast. I personally have never had a stall or difference in my weight loss when I do have a corn tortilla. I have 1 - 2 corn tortillas per week with absolutely no problems. It sure is nice to have a little variation during phase 2!

In a non-stick pan, scramble 3 egg whites with 1 egg. Salt & pepper to taste. Place on a corn tortilla. Top with HcG diet approved salsa (optional).

HcG diet recipe phase 2 P2: Roasted Radishes

I'll be honest, I don't like radishes. In fact of all the times I've done this diet, I've never had them. Well, that changed today and actually forever. I'm in love with roasted radishes now! This might be my new go-to vegetable recipe.

1 bunch radishes, trimmed & quartered
1 t coconut oil
salt & pepper to taste
juice of 1 lemon OR 1 T water & 2 drops dōTERRA Lemon essential oil (NO calories!)

Preheat oven to 500°. In an ovenproof skillet, heat coconut oil until shimmering. Add radishes, season with salt and pepper and cook over high heat stirring occasionally until lightly browned in spots, about 2 minutes. Transfer the skillet to the oven and roast for 15 minutes. Return skillet to the burner and add lemon juice or water/essential oil. Optional: add the radish greens. Cook over moderate heat until greens are just wilted, about 2 minutes, or until liquid is gone. Serve hot.
