The Cabbage Soup Diet

Cabbage Soup Diet



The New Cabbage Soup Diet” (St. Martin’s Paperback, 1997) claims to “help change your life forever,” by showing you how to rapidly lose weight, while keeping you full and satisfied. It promises a weight loss of up to ten pounds or more if you follow the seven-day diet plan.

While I am not aware of any documented proof that the diet works, it does limit calories and thus should work.  For healthy adults, this diet should be safe in the short term.  Like all diets, it is always a good idea to check with your doctor. 

The New Cabbage Soup Diet Editorial Review The New Cabbage Soup Diet,

The author, Margaret Danbrot , April 1, 1997
My opinion about my book The New Cabbage Soup Diet
This diet is extremely effective in helping users lose weight. One can expect to lose nearly 20 pounds after just one week on the diet. Most of this eight is water, however some weight loss truly is because of the loss of fat. One can expect a permanent weight loss of about 5 pounds. This diet is not for people who are pregnant, out of shape, over 20 pounds overweight, or who have any medical condition. Enjoy the book

The New Cabbage Soup Diet also includes tips and other information to improve the success and enjoyment of this diet.

Basic Cabbage Soup Diet Plan:

Day One: 

Fruit: Eat all of the fruit you want (EXCEPT BANANAS). Eat only your soup and the fruit for the first day. For drinks- unsweetened teas, cranberry juice and water.

Day Two:

Vegetables: Eat until you are stuffed will all fresh, raw or cooked vegetables of your choice. Try to eat leafy green vegetables and stay away from dry beans, peas and corn. Eat all the vegetables you want along with your soup. At dinner, reward yourself with a big baked potato with butter. Do not eat fruit today. 

Day Three:

Mix Days One and Two: Eat all the soup, fruits and vegetables you want. NO BAKED POTATO.

Day Four:

Bananas and Skim Milk: Eat as many as eight bananas and drink as many glasses of skim milk as you would like on this day, along with your soup. This day is supposed to lessen your desire for sweets.

Day Five:

Beef And Tomatoes: Ten to twenty ounces of beef and up to six fresh tomatoes. Drink at least 6 to 8 glasses of water this day to wash the uric acid from your body. Eat your soup at least once this day. You may eat broiled or baked chicken instead of beef (but absolutely no skin-on chicken). If you prefer, you can substitute broiled fish for the beef one one of the beef days (but not both).

Day Six: 

Beef and Vegetables. Eat to your heart’s content of beef and vegetables this day. You can even have 2 or 3 steaks if you like, with leafy green vegetables. NO BAKED POTATO. Eat your soup at least once.

Day Seven:

Brown rice, unsweetened fruit juices and vegetables: Again STUFF, STUFF, STUFF yourself. Be sure to eat your soup at least once this day.

That’s it. Good luck. We would love to see this diet work for you, help you lose weight, and give you a more positive self image.
