The Cabbage Soup Diet Plan
We can’t say for sure who has invented this diet as there is no one person who claims responsibility for it. There are also several different versions of this diet floating around but here are the basics:
The claims are that cabbage has high fat burning properties. This diet plan claims that you can lose a large amount of weight in a short space of time.
This is a very strict diet plan and the idea is that you can eat as much cabbage soup as you’d like everyday. This will help fill you up and stop you from cheating.
Here’s a sample of the diet plan:
Day 1 – Eat as much cabbage soup and fruit as you’d like (enough to keep you full). The exception is bananas, you shouldn’t eat any.
Day 2 – Unlimited cabbage soup and vegetables. You can also have one baked potato with a tiny pat of butter.
Day 3 – Unlimited cabbage soup and vegetables, but on this day you many not have any potatoes or bananas.
Day 4 – Unlimited cabbage soup plus up to eight bananas and unlimited skim milk.
Day 5 – Unlimited cabbage soup and up to 20 oz of been and six tomatoes.
Day 6 – Unlimited cabbage soup plus as much beef and vegetables as you’d like but no potatoes.
Day 7 – Unlimited cabbage soup plus brown rice, vegetables and unsweetened fruit juice, but no potatoes.
The Cabbage Soup Diet is a quick fix diet that will probably work in the short term due to the calorie restrictions. It is worth to note that many dieticians do not approve of this diet as it is not balanced enough and severely limits your nutrient intake.
