Cabbage Soup Diet


The Cabbage Soup Diet: Report
Basically a very low calorie diet; the Cabbage Soup Diet works, temporarily, by cutting daily calories to near-starvation levels
What is the Cabbage Soup Diet?
Interestingly, no person or organization seems to want to claim responsibility for inventing the cabbage soup diet! So there isn’t an “official” version, but various cabbage diet plans based around eating copious quantities of cabbage soup, and very little else.
Claims made for the cabbage soup diet range from the ludicrous, ie. the cabbage soup itself has fat burning properties to the dubious, ie. you can lose 10lbs in a week. The diet is often put forward as a quick way to drop pounds for a special event and most proponents advise that it only be followed for a week.
What’s Involved?
The Cabbage Soup Diet plan is very strict. The idea is to eat as much cabbage soup as you like every day – enough to keep you full up, so you don’t cheat! Plus specific additional foods on each day of the seven day diet. No alcohol is allowed and other drinks are limited to water, and unsweetened fruit juice on days when fruit is allowed.
Day 1 – Cabbage soup plus as much fruit as you like, excluding bananas
Day 2 – Cabbage soup plus vegetables including 1 jacket potato with a little butter
Day 3 – Cabbage soup plus fruit and vegetables excluding potatoes and bananas
Day 4 – Cabbage soup plus up to eight bananas and as much skimmed milk as you like
Day 5 – Cabbage soup plus up to 20 ounces of beef and up to six tomatoes
Day 6 – Cabbage soup plus as much beef and vegetables (excluding potatoes) as you like
Day 7 – Cabbage soup plus brown rice, vegetables (excluding potatoes) and unsweetened fruit juice
