Myth: An HCG Diet provides poor nutrition

The HCG True Diet program is designed to make sure necessary nutrients that a person needs is attained. The daily protein requirement is met. Two servings each of vegetables and fruits are required, which is more than most people eat in a day. If one ate only the food on the diet, there is no question that this much food would not be enough to provide the daily necessary vitamins and minerals. However, the True HCG Diet requires that the person take supplements.

Supplements provide the extra nutritional needs not obtained from the foods on the diet. These supplements include high dose multiple vitamins and minerals, to make sure all the daily vitamin requirement needs are met. Most people don’t even get proper vitamins in a regular diet, and taking supplements while on the diet could induce a habit they can continue for life.

Supplements of calcium and vitamin D are recommended, since there are no dairy products in the diet program. Most government and nutritional organizations recommend dairy products, not because of the other nutrients in the group which can be obtained from other sources, but for the calcium content. Taking Calcium supplements takes care of these needs.
