The Cabbage Soup Diet
The Cabbage Soup Diet, a modified fast, is a 7-day fiber-rich, low fat, low carbohydrate diet plan. You are instructed to ingest unlimited amounts cabbage soup, and you are reminded to drink water, stay hydrated. In one week’s time you can lose up to 10-15 pounds. However, most of the weight loss is from fluids, not fat. When the dieter begins to eat normally, the weight will return. On the plus side, cabbage is a member of the Brassica vegetable family, which has been found to aid in preventing cancer. On the down side, this plan lacks good nutrition. You’re likely to be gassy. Eating cabbage soup day in and day out is monotonous.
