    A terrific companion for the HCG diet

    Melissa has created many delicious, easy to make recipes that provide the variety you need to survive the 500 VLCD. The book is well designed and the recipes are easy to follow. I didn't know that my husband and I would find so many "diet" recipes that we will incorporate into our every day life. Chili sauced steaks are splendid and don't miss the spicy Fiesta smoked rub on chicken with a side of coleslaw. Yum! This cookbook is meant as a companion to your HCG diet plan, it does not detail the protocol and some ingredients may be prohibited by your weight loss provider (in my case, soy is not allowed.)

    I really enjoyed these recipes!

    This is not your typical diet food. These recipes are very good. (Which helped the diet go a lot quicker.) I really liked the Bangladesh Beef Curry recipe. YUM!

    With this cookbook, you have to actually think about portions. But that's something I needed to learn to do anyway. (Eyeball a portion size and figure out the calories.) But the book was helpful, because it gives the measurement and nutrition information for the food items allowed on the diet in the front half of the book, so it's all there.

    Oh, and the doctor who advised me to go on the HCG diet allowed me to combine vegetables, so that wasn't an issue for me. :) (I'm on a more moderate version of the diet, I guess.)
