Cabbage Soup Diet

Introduction

A simple 7-day diet of do-it-yourself cabbage soup plus a mixture of other fruits & vegetables and a little meat. Despite many ludicrous claims, cabbage does not possess any 'fat-burning' properties.

What you eat on the cabbage soup diet

Day 1
Home-made cabbage soup, plus any fruit, apart from 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
Home-made cabbage soup, plus other fruits and vegetables.
Day 4
Home-made cabbage soup, plus anything up to 8 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 meat and vegetables.
Day 7
Home-made cabbage soup, plus brown rice, pure fruit juice, and vegetables. 

Advantages of the cabbage soup diet

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

Drawbacks
Not good as a regular or long-term diet plan. Extremely monotonous, it is not sufficiently balanced and lacks other important vitamins and minerals. Also, despite ludicrous claims to the contrary, cabbage does not possess any 'fat-burning' properties. Finally, it doesn't help you to change your eating habits which is the No 1 secret of permanent weight loss.

Verdict
If you fancy a 7-day break from junk food, or if you have only a couple of pounds to lose, it might be worthwhile obtaining a copy of this diet. But DON'T follow it for any longer. Also, please be warned: after 7 days of cabbage soup you may never want to eat another vegetable again!
