If you have a special occasion coming up or you simply need to lose weight fast, the Cabbage Soup Diet may be just what you need.
Although not suitable for long-term weight loss, the Cabbage Soup Diet is a low-fat, high-fiber diet that will help you get into shape fast before you embark on a more moderate long-term eating plan.
Pros and Cons of the Cabbage Soup Diet
Pros: You’ll lose weight fast, and for the week, you can eat as much of the foods listed in the program as you want. Although the diet is only for seven days (and shouldn’t be followed for longer), it provides a great “kick-start” for a more moderate diet.
Cons: Some people find the soup bland. Others report feeling light-headed, weak, and have suffered from decreased concentration (although I hear that many people think the diet is worth the effort anyway, since they lose so much weight!).
What the Cabbage Soup Diet is NOT
The Cabbage Soup Diet is sometimes referred to as the “Mayo Clinic Diet,” the “Sacred Heart Hospital Diet,” and by many other names. Interestingly, this diet is not affiliated with either the Mayo Clinic or the Sacred Heart Hospital system.
The Problem With Most “Mainstream” Diets
Most diets – especially “mainstream” diets, and those recommended by major medical institutions – work slowly but surely, resulting in around 1 pound of weight loss per week.
This “slow and steady” way to lose weight is certainly healthy, but suffers from one major flaw: most people get discouraged and quit whatever diet they are on if they don’t see results quickly. This is how the Cabbage Soup Diet can be your savior and catalyst into a more long term solution.
Seven Keys to Success
- Follow the diet to the letter!
- Drink at least 4 glasses of water per day (or more!).
- Remember – it is only seven days long!
- Complement the diet with a quality daily multi-vitamin.
- Print information from this site and refer to it daily (especially the 7 Day Plan!).
- Eat plenty of soup – the more you eat, the more you should lose! Do not try to starve yourself or you’ll probably cheat (this is what we don’t want).
- Add different spices to liven up the soup and add variety and make it taste better.
