Download this file (10kb)
*SPECIAL NOTE: For those of you who detest
cabbage soup, vegetables, or the idea of eating bowl after bowl of soup,
try blending the soup and drinking it from a glass or a sipper. I
find that it goes down MUCH easier that way. Good luck!
1 OR 2 LARGE CANS OF TOMATOES
4 LARGE GREEN OR 1 LARGE ONION
1 LARGE OR 3 SMALL CANS BEEF BROTH
2 LBS. CARROTS (FROZEN, FRESH, OR CANNED)
1 PKG LIPTON OR KNORR ONION SOUP MIX

In an 8 quart pot, cut vegetables in small to medium pieces and cover
with water. Boil fast for ten minutes. Reduce to simmer and continue cooking
until vegetables are tender. This soup can be eaten anytime you are hungry.
Eat as much as you want, when you want. This soup will not add calories.
The more you eat, the more you will lose. Fill a thermos in the morning
if you will be away during the day. If eaten alone for indefinite periods,
you will suffer malnutrition.
BEVERAGES INCLUDE: Unsweetened juices, unsweetened teas, coffee, cranberry
juice or water, skim milk. Stick with water - this is the best beverage.
Definite no no's include carbonated drinks, diet drinks, alcohol, bread
and fried foods.
All fruits except bananas. Cantaloupe and watermelon are lower in calories
than most fruits. Eat only the soup and fruit.
Eat until you are stuffed with all types of fresh, raw or canned vegetables.
Try to eat green leafy Veggies and stay away from dry beans, peas, and
corn. Eat along with soup. At dinner time on this day, reward yourself
with a big baked potato and butter. Don't eat any fruit on this day.
Eat all soup, veggies and fruit you want. No baked potato. If you have
eaten as above for three days and have not cheated, you will find you have
lost 4-7 pounds.
Bananas, skim milk. Eat as many as 3 bananas and drink as many glasses
of skim milk as you can on this day along with the soup (milk shake with
bananas tastes good). Bananas are high in calories and carbohydrates as
is the milk. On this day your body will need the potassium carbohydrates,
proteins and calcium to lessen your craving for sweets.
Beef and tomatoes. You may have 10-20 oz. Of beef. One can of tomatoes
or as many as 6 fresh tomatoes on this day. Try to drink at least 6-8 glasses
of water to wash away uric acid in the body this day. Eat soup at least
Beef and veggies; eat to your heart's content. You can even have two or
three steaks with green leafy vegetables, but NO baked potato. Be sure
to eat soup at least once today.
Brown rice, unsweetened fruit juice and vegetables; stuff yourself as you
did on day two. Be sure to have soup at least once.
At the end of the seventh day, if you didn't cheat, you will have lost
10-17 pounds. If you lose more than 15 pounds, stay of the diet for two
days before resuming the diet again. Start over with day one.
Cabbage Soup Diet - Suggestions and Information
- This seven day eating plan can be used as often as you like. If correctly
followed, it will clean your system of all impurities and give you a feeling
of well-being as never before. After only 7 days of this process, you will
begin to feel lighter by at least 10 and possibly 17 pounds and have an
abundance of energy. Continue this plan as long as you wish and feel the
- This diet is fast, fat-burning and the secret is that you will burn
more calories than you take in . It will flush your system of impurities
and give you a feeling of well-being. This diet does NOT lend itself to
drinking any alcoholic beverages at any time because of the removal of
fat build-up in your system. Go off the diet at least 24 hours before any
intake of alcohol.
- Because everyone's digestive system is different, this diet will affect
everyone differently. After day three, you will have more energy than when
you began if you don't cheat. After being on the diet for several days,
you will find your bowel movements have changed - you may have to eat a
cup of bran or fiber - when looser bowels are experienced - no bran is
needed. Although you can have black coffee with this diet, you may find
that you don't need the caffeine after the third day.
- The Basic Fat Burning Soup can be eaten any time you feel hungry. Eat
as much as you want . Remember, the more you eat, the more you lose. You
may substitute broiled or baked skinless chicken instead of meat. If you
prefer, you can substitute broiled fish for beef on only ONE of the beef
days. You need high protein in the beef on the other days.
- Personally, I can only stay on the soup for 2-3 days. Then I eat sensibly
for the remainder of the week and start up again the following week. My
average weight loss is 3-4 pounds per week.
- I suggest you do a light workout each day that you're on it. This will increase the amount of
weight you lose.
- Any prescribed medications will not hurt you on this diet. Continue
this plan as long as you wish and feel the difference both mentally and
- Another suggestion I have while eating normal food (in between the soup diet) is portions! Don't finish everything on your
plate. Also, you don't have to deny yourself anything. If you want some ice cream, get a spoon, take one scoop! If you want
a chocolate bar, slice off one bite and save the rest for your next urge. As for chips, give yourself 4-5. If you don't treat
yourself every once in a while, you will surely fall off the good eating wagon.
