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: 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.

Is coconut oil allowed on Phase 2? Everything I've read says no oils.

Technically it's not, but personally I've found that it's perfectly fine with no stalls. I use it very sparingly, 1t once or twice a week.

MCT oil, is a version of coconut oil that many HCG diets don't consider bad... I have used it nearly every day on roasted vegetables, and have maintained a pound lost a day for the past 21 days. https://www.onnit.com/onnit-mct-oil/?pid=782&gclid=CjwKEAjwmZWvBRCCqrDK_8atgBUSJACnib3l95GVPpXASdIHopHHRDljJdqtztgWqFRcRCqKTgjq-hoCxfvw_wcB

is doTerra oil allowed? i use and sell Doterra E.O. and i am completely sad that I had to give them up for 5 weeks.

Terri, I do use doTerra throughout the diet as there are no calories or fat. I've never stalled because of it either.
