Strictly speaking while a dieter is on Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the HCG protocol any alcoholic beverages are “not allowed”. It is only in the maintenance period that the one glass of wine is allowed but, only occasionally. For those dieters that where habitual drinkers, this abstinence is quite difficult to follow and this is really a big challenge for them.
However contrary to what is being said, many drinkers especially during Phase 2, have reported that the HCG diet program had curbed their urge and thirst for alcohol. Alcoholic beverage is allowed but only in the maintenance phase. When starting to add alcohol in the maintenance phase, be sure you are aware of the sugar content of your beverage.
