Can you use Crystal Light while on the HCG Diet? NO! Absolutely no diet drinks. You are eliminating harmful carbs during the diet. Refined processed sugars are off limits. This also applies during the maintenance phase. You can eat anything you please, except sugar and starch, provided you observe one simple rule. This rule is that you must weigh every morning without fail. Sugar, rice, bread, potatoes, pastries...are by far the most dangerous and should be avoided during the diet and while in maintenance. You should increase your caloric intake to at least 800 calories per day during the maintenance phase. Continuing on the 500 calorie diet is not recommended and could lead to weight gain. Please read all the information given to you by your doctor and if you didn't get reading material then read Dr. Simeon's report on the diet.
