During the HCG diet, you cut out all starches and sugars. This is part of what helps you lose weight. There are two starches that are allowed on the HCG diet, however. These are the melba toast and the grissini.
A melba toast is a small piece of bread that is crispy. A grissini is a long, thin, crunchy breadstick. HCG diet protocol states that you can have two servings of these things per day. This means that at one meal, you may have one melba toast or one grissini.
At the next meal, you may have one melba toast or one grissini. You could use them as a topping on a salad to mimic croutons, or you could top a melba toast with chicken. It would be like eating a small sandwich.
It’s important to watch your consumption of these two items. You might think that “just one more a day can’t hurt.” That’s not a good way to think. The HCG diet has been tested time and again using the exact methods outlined in Dr. Simeons’ protocol. There is a reason for every serving suggestion. Stick to the diet, and it will work for you.
