Hi Kathy! Since these are reader-submitted recipes, it’s really up to the dieter to determine appropriate portions and make sure the recipe itself is in line with the specific protocol they are following. We have made a few tweaks to some recipes for clarification, but ultimately, it will be the same as when they are shared on social sites etc. You can find the food list on our main site which includes portions and guidelines for cooking: http://hcgdietinfo.com

We will have this available here soon as well 🙂
