October 4, 2017 at 11:18 pm #444
We have updated the instructions to be more user friendly and more food to eat to ‘feel full’….
THE ACTUAL 500 CAL DIET
Don’t panic you won’t be hungry using the Nova Clinic HCG Patches. Also the HCG stimulates your body to use the abnormal and unwanted fat stores as food – so you don’t feel run down. Also as you lose weight your face won’t look haggard, unlike most other diets where you lose good fat. Only eat until full, don’t overeat.
Any amount of coffee, tea, herbal teas. You can also make a soda with mineral water and flavoured stevia. You can use one of your fruits here. eg: 1 chip of strawberries or 1 cup stewed apple. Check out our Recipe Page on http://www.hcgskinpatch.com
FOR LUNCH & DINNER
Both meals are the same – choose either 4 ounces (113 kilograms) of meat, chicken, fish or one hardboiled egg – with a big salad or hot vegetables, or soup. The fish, chicken or steak should fit inside the palm of your hand.
OR you can also leave out the fish, meat, chicken, egg and replace with a bowl of mashed potato or 1 cup cooked rice instead. More filling!
Also coffee, tea, herb tea or stevia flavoured sodas.
Note – Not enough protein and starch in your diet will slow your ability to lose weight. Proteins (from all foods not just meat) are used every single day to keep the body going. Because they are used to develop, grow and maintain just about every part of our body – from our skin and hair to our digestive enzymes and immune system antibodies – they are constantly being broken down and must be replaced. If you can’t eat either two servings of meat, fish, chicken or egg per day, then use whey powder as below. You can also get all of your protein (you need only 4% of your diet each day to get adequate) from vegetables and starches.
Whey or Pea Protein Powder – If you too rushed to cook you can blend a cup of water, some of your milk (or use rice milk), some of your fruit and 2 tbsp. of good quality isolate whey powder (pure protein) or pea protein powder (better), instead of your meat, chicken, fish or egg, just for that meal. You can flavour with stevia also, and add ice cubes.
Choose only lean meats and free range chicken. All visible fat must be removed before cooking and the portion should be weighed raw. Cook all meat, chicken or fish on a grill, baking paper or non-stick pan so no fat. Veal or Steak – choose free-range only because they are oestrogen/hormone free. Oestrogen’s given to cattle promote fattening them up. Do not use fat-marbled steak.
Chicken breast – free range and no skin.
No No Fish – no oily fish like salmon, mackerel, sardines, tuna, trout or kippers.
Good Fish – Fresh White Fish Halibut Swordfish Bass Flounder Pike
John dory Orange roughy Snapper Crab meat Lobster Shrimp Jew fish
Foods can be seasoned with
Sea or rock salt Pepper Vinegar Mustard Powder
Garlic Sweet-Basil Parsley Thyme
Marjoram Chilli powder Lemon Lime
Bragg Liquid Aminos (like soy sauce but no fat or sugar, available from health food shops or online).
A hot vegetable dish, soup or cold salad made with only the following fresh or frozen vegetables. These vegetables have no fat so eat up. Use spices and seasonings that are listed above to add flavour. Create an amazing inspiring meal.
Asparagus Beetroot Beans Broccoli Beet-greens Cauliflower Carrots
Cabbage Chard Chicory Cucumbers Celery Fennel Greens Leaves
Herbs Lettuces Mushrooms Onions Peppers Parsnips Red radishes
Snow peas Spinach Tomato Zucchini
Raw vegetables and fruit have live enzymes and they make your whole body sing.
Potatoes. Sweet Potato or Rice: Instead of meat, fish, chicken, egg for each meal. Large potato or sweet potato mashed with rice milk.
Or 1 cup cooked rice, preferably brown. Add tons of vegetables. More filling than meat and is nutrient dense.
Fruit – a treat between meals or at breakfast – Total 2 per day. Any type of fruit is ok.
E.g. Apple large Strawberries (1 punnet or chip) Large slice watermelon Orange large Grapefruit
No No – avocados, olives, nuts, chia seeds, any seeds, tofu, coconut, yogurt, butter, cheese, any oil (they are all full of fat/oil).
Bread – 2 cruskets or 2 rice cakes, Melba toasts or grissini bread sticks per day – but no butter duh!
Eggs – 1 free range per day instead of the meat, chicken or fish for that meal.
Milk – Half cup of skim milk per day. Note Rice milk is a food so is much better than cow’s milk, you can use 3/4 cup per day.
Liquids – Only drink tea, coffee, herbal teas, plain water or mineral water in any quantity. Try to drink a litre of water a day. Water is essential. Fill 1-2 bottles with purified or filtered water each morning add a pinch of sea or rock salt to help your body absorb it. (Don’t use commercial salt from supermarket that has a chemical free flowing agent added).
Read all labels. No alcohol or sugar filled sodas.
Add 5 drops of flavoured stevia (eg; coco cola flavour) if you don’t like water so much.
Flavoured sweet drinks – add five drops of flavoured stevia to mineral water, soda water or plain water to make many flavours of sodas.
E.g. chocolate, orange, mint, vanilla cream, berry, lemon, hazelnut, peppermint, cinnamon, toffee. Add ice cubes.
Or freeze into ice blocks and eat as many as you like every day.October 5, 2017 at 12:55 pm #479stacySpectator
Thanks for your posts. I really enjoy reading them!
Not sure if you picked up in the post above and on your website, a typo under:
FOR LUNCH & DINNER
Both meals are the same – choose either 4 ounces (11 kilograms) of meat, chicken, fish.
4 ounces converted is 113.398 grams and not 11 kilograms – but I suppose everyone is using google to convert ounces into grams anyway?? That’s what I did.
Also – what is a strawberry chip? Is this for your American clients? I am thinking that it might mean 1 punnet?
Again, many thanks for your patches. I’m on week 1 and finding it really easy so far!

Hi, thanks for that. A chip of strawberries is the same as a punnet, they were called a chip in the old days (I must be old).
Great the patches are working well for you, good luck.

A question. Can I use small amounts of fresh ginger for Asian style food?April 3, 2018 at 1:02 am #606
Yes you can use ginger as much as you like – just be aware that ‘bare ginger’ or dried ginger pieces are covered with sugar. So use fresh ginger.

Can I eat pork?April 11, 2018 at 1:05 am #624
Pork yes as long as there is no fat visible and it is not cooked in fat.
Obviously this does not include bacon which is too fatty.
