Everyone wants to have a soda every once in a while, and most of the time soda is a bad idea while on the HCG diet (it’s banned on phase 2). However, there are great alternatives to the store-bought soda, which can be much healthier for you, and it is approved on the HCG diet.
Most sodas you get from the store come sweetened with aspartame, which has adverse health effects, especially when dieting. Secondly, most sodas have high amounts of citric acid which can cause plateaus while on the HCG diet. And lastly, the high amount of sodium found in most diet sodas is bad to your health and can cause cravings or stalls.
As a great alternative, using the Soda Stream soda maker, you can create your own HCG diet sodas. It’s so simple: just add fresh squeezed orange juice, strawberries, lemons, apples, or whatever you would like, while controlling the amount of carbonation in your drink. This way you can create your own flavor, and be in complete control of the HCG diet soda, ensuring it to be tasty, refreshing, and most importantly healthy!
