Whey Protein; A Late Addition to the HCG Diet

Whey protein allows you to maintain muscle mass while strictly losing fat


Whey Protein Label


There have been few additions to the HCG diet over the years, but Whey Protein is one of them. The thing to remember about the HCG diet is that it is entirely anecdotal. Sure, it’s theory is based in science and human physiology, but the practical application is derived from trial and error practices at Dr. Simeon’s original clinic in 1940’s Rome. With that said, food has changed tremendously from one country to another over the past 60 years. When Dr. Simeon wrote his manuscript, Pounds and Inches; A New Approach to Obesity, vegetables were grown fresh, organic. Fish were caught from the sea rather than harvested from breeding pools and the beef was grass fed on the rolling hills of Tuscany.

Today food is mass produced like manufactured goods; designed for shelf life rather than nutritional content. As a result, 500 calories today doesn’t have the same nutritional value as 5oo calories did in 1940’s Rome. This is why Whey protein is the perfect addition to the HCG diet. The food label to the right is a fairly standard Whey Protein food label. As you can see, one serving of Whey Protein provides 26 grams of protein while adding only 9 grams of carbs and fat combined. I typically recommend a half serving of Whey Protein for women and a full serving for men within the first 30 minutes of waking up and a half serving before bed. In the morning it jump starts your metabolism and in the evening it gives you the protein you need for cellular repair, but most importantly, it allows you to maintain muscle mass while strictly loosing from fat while on the HCG diet.

Why didn’t Dr. Simeon recommend Whey Protein for his diet? In the 1940s it was discarded as a by-product of cheese production. To learn more about the health benefits of Whey, check Wiki. A Whey protein shake makes a great HCG diet breakfast.
