Cabbage Soup Diet

By Keeyun Keum

You can only cabbage soup and you aren't suppose eat bread, carbonated beverages, or alcohol while you're doing this diet. The pro's for this diet is that you lose weight very fast. The con for this diet is that the soup is too bland and it is high in salt. The recipe for the cabbage soup is

6 large green onions

2 green peppers
1 or 2 cans of tomatoes (diced or whole)
1 bunch celery
1/2 head cabbage
1 package Onion Soup Mix
1 or 2 cubes bouillon (optional)
1 48 oz. can V8
Juice (optional)
Season to taste (salt, pepper, parsley, curry, garlic powder, etc).

Cabbage soup has 73 calories. If you eat the soup you have unavoidable gas. After this 1 week diet, you lose a lot of weight but you get migraines. The diet itself is not a well-rounded meal plan.  

This is the daily schedule for the cabbage soup diet.

Day 1 Homemade cabbage soup, plus any fruit, apart from bananas.

Day 2 Homemade cabbage soup, plus other vegetables, including a baked potato with butter for dinner (potatoes are off-limits on other days)
