There are some people who have special dietary needs that can make the hCG diet a challenge. For example, people who are restricted to a vegetarian diet may find that their weight loss is much slower.
You may want to get protein through milk or cheese, but these sources will not allow your body to burn fat as quickly. In fact, vegetarians usually only lose about half as much weight as their meat-eating counterparts.
Instead, if youâ€™re a vegetarian youâ€™ll want to focus on sources of protein such as tofu, bean curd, and tempeh. You may also rely on legumes to help supplement your protein needs. Still, donâ€™t be surprised if your weight loss isnâ€™t quite as fast as it would be eating meat.
