One of the most famous fad diets, the Cabbage Soup Diet is a very low calorie low fat diet based on (you’ve guessed it) cabbage soup, plus a few other foods, including vegetables, fruits and restricted carbs and protein. Typically the advice is to follow it for 7 days, then eat normally for 14 days, then return to the Cabbage Soup Diet for another 7 days and so on.

Despite claims to the contrary, cabbage does not possess any ‘fat-burning’ properties. The reason the Cabbage Soup Diet causes weight loss is because it provides no more than about 800-900 calories a day.

]]> ]]> Cabbage Soup – Diet Recipe

The soup itself is usually made from: 3 onions, 1 head of celery, 1 green bell pepper, half a cabbage, 2 tins of tomatoes, 1 pack of onion soup mix and 3 pints of vegetable stock. Herbs and spices are not recommended. This is sufficient for about 6 servings.

What You Eat on the Cabbage Soup Diet

  • Day 1
    Unlimited cabbage soup; unlimited fruits (most allowed, except bananas.)
  • Day 2
    Home-made cabbage soup, plus other vegetables, including a baked potato with butter for dinner (potatoes are off-limits on other days)
  • Day 3
    Unlimited cabbage soup; unlimited fruits (most allowed, except bananas.)
  • Day 4
    Home-made cabbage soup, plus anything up to 6 bananas and fat-free milk.
  • Day 5
    Home-made cabbage soup, plus 6 tomatoes and up to 450 grams of meat or fish.
  • Day 6
    Home-made cabbage soup, plus unlimited lean beef or chicken and vegetables.
  • Day 7
    Home-made cabbage soup, plus unlimited brown rice, pure fruit juice, and vegetables. 

Cabbage Soup Diet – Advantages

Probably quite good as a short term break from the average junk-food diet. In addition, home-made soup is a good weight loss food – although any vegetable soup will do – and is reasonably filling. Little cooking required.

Cabbage Soup Diet – Verdict

Okay if you want a 7-day break from junk food, or if you have only a little weight to lose. But be aware than it is not nutritionally based and should not be followed long-term. Also, after 7 days of vegetable soup you may never want to eat another vegetable again!
