HCG 2.0 addresses many of the inadequacies of the traditional HCG diet written and originally published by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons in his manuscript Pounds and Inches; A New Approach to Obesity. For example, on any given day, the traditional HCG diet allows up to 60-80 grams of carbs in fruit, bread sticks and root vegetables, such as onions. Vegetable options on the HCG diet written by Dr. Simeons were very limited and he instructed not to mix your HCG vegetable options. There’s little research justifying his limitation on vegetables. In fact, root vegetables such as onions, which are allowed on his diet are very high in carbs. Most root vegetables are as high in carbs per gram as apples or pears. The notion of limiting protein, as on the traditional HCG diet, while allowing up to 80 grams per day of carbs is contrary to everything we know know about low-carb ketosis dieting.
