ALL GREAT QUESTIONS!!!
Plain egg whites can be used.
The protein shakes are there for a couple reasons:
1. To add increased protein and increased calories to the diet if you are under you daily allowance.
2. To be used while traveling and healthy HCG food is not available.
3. To be used instead of food when necessary
You must eat a minimum of 500 calories per day. Every calculator for food on the internet is going to give you a different value. SO, to make it easy, we say stay between 500 - 550 calories per day to make it easy.
Now, most people just weight their food and DO NOT count the calories. We see it every single day. When we go through the calculations with them, they always end up between 300 and 374 calories. Simply put, without the sauces and carbs and seasonings, 500-550 calories of food is quite a lot! If you find your self eating under the required calories and you simply cannot get another meal in, have a shake. That will bring you up to where you need to be, and the extra protein is AWESOME for you!
