The Cabbage Soup Diet 7-Day Plan
The Cabbage Soup Diet has been recognized for the past 30 years
as a quick way to lose at least ten pounds fast. The diet is only
to be adhered to for seven days, and then it is recommended that
you take at least a two-week break before going on the diet again.
The 7-day Cabbage Soup Diet plan consists of various foods that
may be consumed on different days of the plan, along with as much
of the Cabbage Soup that you would like to eat. The Cabbage Soup
is extremely low in calories and will not cause you to gain any
weight. It is recommended that you take a multivitamin/mineral supplement
throughout the course of the diet and drink plenty of water. You
may choose to supplement the diet with a protein drink if you find
that you are not consuming enough protein on the diet. You should
also notify your doctor or health care practitioner and make them
aware of the fact that you are going on the diet as well.
Here is the 7-day eating plan for the Cabbage Soup Diet.
On the first day of the diet, you can eat as much soup as you like.
You are also required to eat as many fruits as you like, except
for bananas. So, that means you are allowed unlimited amounts of
fruit and the Cabbage Soup, except for bananas. You may also drink
unlimited amounts of water, cranberry juice, unsweetened tea, or
On Day 2 you may eat unlimited amounts of the Cabbage Soup as well
as unlimited amounts of fresh, cooked, or raw vegetables. However,
you may not eat beans, peas, or corn. There is no fruit allowed
on Day 2. You may eat potatoes on Day 2.
On Day 3, you may combine foods from the approved lists for Days
1 and 2, however you may not eat potatoes, beans, corn, peas, or
bananas. You may eat unlimited amounts of the Cabbage Soup and the
approved fruits and vegetables.
Day 4 is the day that you should notice your addiction to sweets
lessens. You may eat up to 8 bananas and drink unlimited amounts
of skim milk. You may also eat unlimited amounts of the Cabbage
Day 5 is referred to as the Beef and Tomatoes day. On this day
you may eat between ten to twenty ounces of beef. However, if you
prefer you may substitute skinless chicken or fish for the beef.
Also, you may eat up to six fresh tomatoes. You should include at
least one bowl of Cabbage Soup as well. Your body will be releasing
Uric Acid so be sure to drink plenty of water to help flush the
acid from your body. (*note- if you substitute fish for beef on
Day 5 you can not substitute fish for beef on Day 6 as well.)
Day 6 is referred to as the Beef and Vegetables Day. You may eat
unlimited amounts of beef and vegetables today. However, do not
eat any baked potatoes today. Make sure to eat at least one bowl
of the Cabbage Soup and drink plenty of water. It is a good idea
to include green leafy vegetables.
This is your final day on the diet plan. Be sure to eat at least
one bowl of the Cabbage Soup. On day 7, you may eat unlimited amounts
of brown rice, unsweetened juice, and vegetables. Drink plenty of
water as well.
