Types of Water Allowed on HCG
The Phase 2 menu of Dr. Simeons’ HCG Diet is extremely strict. The foods allowed are chosen from a very short list, and even certain cosmetics are restricted during this phase. It’s no surprise that beverages are restricted as well. The beverages allowed are coffee, tea and water only. Here is some advice about what water to use while on HCG:
In Pounds and Inches, Dr. Simeons says that you must drink mineral water during Phase 2 of the diet. However as Dr. Simeons initial tests took place decades ago, “mineral water” then is not the same as we consider “mineral water” now. Modern mineral water is usually carbonated and may contain other additives restricted in phase 2 of the HCG Diet.
The “mineral water” Dr. Simeons was referring to is referred to as “spring water” today. It’s labeled as such in stores, and is not to be confused with distilled water or jugs labeled “drinking water.”
Try and purify your tap water as much as possible. It is important is that you only drink clean, pure water.
