If you want to get fit and need to lose fast a few pounds for some special occasion, then the Cabbage Soup Diet is what you need!
Every fad diet starts like that. Well, I admit the Cabbage Soup Diet is a fad diet, but it will help you lose weight for sure. I know that because my mom is a regular cabbage soup dieter.
It is an extremely low calorie diet, where you consume home made cabbage soup prepared from cabbage, tomatoes, onions, carrots, peppers and some other vegetables. It is designed to help you lose about 10 pounds for the 1 week diet plan.
The more soup you eat, the more weight you lose – that’s how it works. It is as simple as that.
For the one week diet plan you can eat as much soup as you want. That sounds great, because you won’t be starving, and yet be losing weight.
My mom diets every summer before the summer beach vacation. Every summer, for the last 6 years, she proves that losing weight with Cabbage Soup Diet is possible by succeeding to get fit for her favorite bathing suit.
The good news is that for 7 days you eat as much soup as you like whenever you feel hungry, in order to keep you away from tasty snacks. You must not snack forbidden foods. Yes, the diet is strict – there is a specific menu for each day, as well as some foods and drinks that are not allowed.
! NOTE: No alcohol or fizzy drinks, not even the diet ones!
Day 1 – eat as much soup as you like + all kind of fruits, except bananas; drink tea and coffee without sugar
