Cabbage Soup Diet Reviews

1 “I ate this soup for months when the recipe came out years ago. You have to eat nothing else to lose weight. I lost about 30 lbs!

I gave the recipe to everyone at work and they all lost weight too. Besides which, it is an excellent soup (not so much for breakfast as we did back then!) but I still like it. I have added chickpeas to the recipe for some protein. Also, lean hamburger goes well”

2 “I’ve been making this for my boyfriend for about three months now. The only thing I do differently is to add ground turkey. He eats a light breakfast of whatever he wants, a light sandwich for lunch and the soup for dinner.

He likes to add some heat in the form of Tabasco or different dried peppers as it heats on the stove EVERY NIGHT. He’s lost over 50 pounds! I’m sick of making it, but if it’s working and he’s enjoying it, I’ll keep a pot in the fridge”

3I would recommend NOT making alterations to this soup because the purpose of the recipe is to lose weight. I did lose weight when I made this (it was for a vacation), and it tasted great!

I checked with a local hospital, and they said this recipe is used for overweight patients to get them to lose weight rapidly to prepare for surgery. I would recommend this recipe to anyone!”

via Diva’s Can Cook

Divas Can Cook have an excellent infographic to accompany their video which is as follows:

Day One: Fruit: Eat all of the fruit you want (except bananas). Eat only your soup and the fruit for the first day. For drinks- unsweetened teas, cranberry juice, and water.

Day Two: Vegetables: Eat until you are stuffed will all fresh, raw, or cooked vegetables of your choice.

Try to eat leafy green vegetables and stay away from dry beans, peas, and corn.

Eat all the vegetables you want along with your soup. At dinner, reward yourself with a big baked potato with butter. Do not eat fruit today.

Day Three: Mix Days One and Two: Eat all the soup, fruits, and vegetables you want. No Baked Potato.

Day Four: Bananas and Skim Milk: Eat as many as eight bananas and drink as many glasses of skim milk as you would like on this day, along with your soup. This day is supposed to lessen your desire for sweets.

Day Five: Beef or Chicken And Tomatoes: Ten to twenty ounces of beef and up to six fresh tomatoes. Drink at least 6 to 8 glasses of water this day to wash the uric acid from your body. Eat your soup at least once this day.

You may eat broiled or baked chicken instead of beef (but absolutely no skin-on chicken). If you prefer, you can substitute broiled fish for beef on one of the beef days (but not both).

Day Six: Beef and Vegetables: Eat to your heart’s content beef or skinless chicken and vegetables this day.

You can have 2 or 3 steaks if you like, with leafy green vegetables. No Baked Potato. Eat your soup at least once.

Day Seven: Brown rice, unsweetened fruit juices, and vegetables: Again stuff, stuff, stuff yourself. Be sure to eat your soup at least once on his day.

You can use chicken broth or vegetable broth with seasoned canned tomatoes to spice it up. It shouldn’t vary your results and will taste decidedly better.

Throughout the diet, season with salt, pepper, herbs and seasonings. This will take the edge of any blandness.

You will need to stick with the cabbage soup diet for 7 days and be sure to eat your soup at least once a day. You are not allowed to have bread, alcohol, or carbonated beverages, not even diet soda.

Whilst results vary, we tried this diet and lost around 8 kilos. You should easily manage to lose 5 kilos. Some have recorded more. 10 pounds would be a great result and is regularly achieved according to review sites.
