Cabbage Soup Diet - Why It's a Fad Diet
And Why You Shouldn't Try It

The Cabbage Soup Diet is a FAD diet, and has gained popularity because it allows you to lose a few quick pounds by eating/drinking the cabbage soup recipe! Please, for your own health's sake, do not try the cabbage soup diet. It doesn't make nutritional sense, it doesn't taste too good, and all the pounds you lose from cabbage soup diet is all water pounds - meaning all the weight you lose is water, not actual body fat.

About Cabbage Soup Diet - If You Didn't Know

Here's a quick run down of the cabbage soup diet for those of you who are not sure what it is, and are interested. This 'diet' based on cabbage soup 'claims' that the more soup you eat, that more weight you lose. Doesn't that sound great? Who wouldn't love to eat more and yet lose more weight? The truth is, you just lose water weight.

The basis of this diet is that cabbage soup contains very little calories, that it's a "fat burning" soup. The dieters can eat/drink all the water and cabbage soup they want, combined with very few other allowed foods. (This is JUST NOT healthy!) I suppose if you really wanted to lose a few pounds real fast to fit a dress for a special occasion, you might want to try this diet... But, I highly recommend against it. It's just not good common sense... And, there's no scientific support for such a diet, and it's unhealthy.

Now you know what the cabbage soup diet is about, here's the 7 day diet plan:

Day 1: Eat as much soup as you want, but eat only fruits(no bananas), drink unsweetened tea, black coffee, cranberry juice, and water.

Day 2: Eat raw or cooked vegetables all you want, but avoid beans, peas and corn. No fruits, and eat all the cabbage soup you want. Have a baked potato with butter at dinner.

Day 3: You can eat as much fruit and veggies as you want, but no baked potato.

Day 4: Bananas and skimmed milk with as much cabbage soup as you want.

Day 5: Eat 10 to 20 ounces of beef and up to 6 tomatoes. Eat cabbage soup at least once, and drink 6 to 8 glasses of water.

Day 6: Stuff yourself with veggies and beef. Eat the cabbage soup at least once. No baked potato.

Day 7: Stuff yourself with brown rice, unsweetened fruit juices and veggies. Eat cabbage soup at least once. No bread, alcohol, or diet soda.

Why You Shouldn't Try The Cabbage Soup Diet

Just seeing the cabbage soup diet instructions should turn you away from it. It makes no nutritional sense. The first rule of good dieting is provide your body with good nutrition, and this is accomplished by eating a variety of foods. The cabbage soup diet severely restricts your food varieties each day.

Vegetables are important part of all healthy diets. Cabbage is a very healthy vegetable, but it's no super food. A moderate amount from all types of food is the best way for healthy dieting.

Most importantly, for a diet to be viable, you have to be able to stick to it. Most people can't get through the 7 day cabbage soup diet. The weight that you lose through the cabbage soup diet is mostly water, and you'll easily gain it back.

Good health, personal wellness, and weight loss is not achieved with fad diets like the cabbage soup diet, but with old fashioned healthy eating habits, and regular exercise.

If you insist on trying the cabbage soup diet even after you've read all this, there's not much I can do. But please consult your physician or doctor before trying the cabbage soup diet. If I've convinced you not to try the cabbage soup diet, then I've accomplished something. Nevertheless, that doesn't mean you can't serve the cabbage soup as a dish for regular, healthy eating. Cabbage is very good for you, when eating moderate amounts of it. Here's the cabbage soup recipe.
