Cabbage Soup Diet: Tips for Success

The Cabbage Soup Diet is a great way to jumpstart your diet or health plan. It may be used for a short length of time (7 days) and helps dieters lose between 10-15 pounds in that week. You are allowed to eat unlimited amounts of the Cabbage Soup (the bulk of the diet) and this has many pros as well as cons. Some of the pros include the fact that dieters can eat as much of the soup that they want, and continue to lose weight. This is a great positive for those who need to jumpstart their diet, but have a hard time controlling food cravings or abstaining from food. Having the luxury of eating any time you are hungry, while continuing to lose weight gives dieters the ability to stick to the eating plan for seven days, and see the rewards of having the weight drop off, quickly and in a large amount.
The negatives of the diet consist of the fact that many people can become bored with the soup. Creating variations of the soup is a great way to counteract any potential boredom of the soup. There are a number of different variations you can use to create delicious Cabbage Soup recipes.

It is also a good idea to keep a journal of your 7-day plan. This is a great way to ensure that you will stay committed to the plan and remain successful. You may want to include all of the foods that you have eaten, as well as keep track of all exercise that you have performed. Since the diet is so low in calories, you will lose a significant amount of weight from the diet alone, however if you exercise along with the diet, you will lose considerably more. If you haven’t worked out for a while, that’s fine. Simply begin to incorporate walking into your plan. Try beginning with a 25-30 minute walk each day. You don’t have to worry about special equipment, weights, or machines- just walk.

Make sure that you drink plenty of water, at least 8 glasses per day. This diet will cause your body to release toxins and you need the water to flush out your system. Always drink water and record the amount in your journal.
One great way to stay motivated throughout the diet is to choose a reward for when you've completed it. Remember, you will have lost between 10-15 pounds, so you may want to reward yourself with a new dress or outfit. Choose the store that you would like to shop in, or pick out a new outfit, and set that as your goal. When you have finished the diet, reward yourself with your new outfit. You may also want to reward yourself with new jewelry, or having your hair done.

You may also find that you will increase your motivation if you go on the diet with a friend. This is a great way to have support throughout the diet, and you and your partner can encourage each other. You may also choose to exercise with your partner as well.

By staying positive and committed to the diet, you will see the weight come off.
