Myth #6: You don’t eat enough fiber on the diet.

Your body requires adequate fiber for proper colon function and for better health. Some critics of the 500 calories diet say you won’t get enough fiber on 500 calories a day. However, let’s evaluate this scientifically. The American Dietetic Association recommends a healthy diet include 20 to 35 grams of fiber a day from plant foods, including both soluble and insoluble fiber. However, most Americans normally only consume about half that amount.

The HCG True Diet requires that you ingest at least the same as what most Americans normally eat. Sometimes this can be even more than the recommended healthy diet amounts. Most fruits and vegetables can contain around 4 or more grams of fiber per serving. Since four servings are required per day on the HCG True Diet program, you will at least ingest what most Americans eat every day. Many people actually eat much healthier meals on the diet. Moreover, if they need more fiber, supplements can also be prescribed.
