Diets are the pinnacle of society nowadays, making their way into more than 80% of the modern homes of all Americans and Canadians. They plea to be the keys to being, ‘Thin’, ‘healthy’, and make you look, ‘beautiful’ but do they really? Not exactly. Many of these diet plans have extreme consequences during consumption and can cause many problems for your physical appearance, and inner system. One of the oddest, yet simplest one is the ‘cabbage soup’ diet.
The cabbage soup diet is basically a diet where well.. Just as it’s title states, it’s completely made up of cabbage soup. Most people would consider a ridiculous unnessicaryweight training, but these people are legitimately going to the length of only eating cabbage to get thin. They say it only takes 7 days, but does it really? Look at the pros and cons of this strange yet simple diet.
Lose weight fast.
It’s only 7 days.
Provides a great kick start to your diet, making you lose weight quickly in the run of a few days.
I have to admit though, even with it’s cons it does have a nice simplicity and out rules many other diets. It’s quite healthy for a diet, and at least is better than placing a worm or toxic diet pills into your system. If you’re not afraid of the irregular thought patterns and strong fatigue than this is the path to weight loss you should consider. It has plenty of nourishment with the water the cabbage is sitting in, and at least it has some nutrients. There is plenty worst things than cabbage soup.
It can make you feel light headed.
It can make you feel weak and cause fatigue.
You can suffer from a decrease of concentration.
It’s physically impossible to lose 15 pounds in just 7 days on this diet. To lose one pound of fat, a person must burn 3,000 to 3,500 more calories than they consume. Cabbage soup does not consist of that.
7 days doesn’t look really good now, does it? This unfortunately is the consequences of only consuming one food for several days. Your body needs various and many different vitamins, proteins, fats, and many other things as well. Cabbage doesn’t quite seem like it covers it according to the cons that state you could lose your concentration. Is that really the diet you want to be put on? When you think about it what is really better, a bit of extra weight or messing up your thought process and inner health system?
7 keys to success(According to the leading website)
Follow the diet to the letter.
Drink at least 4 glasses of water per day ( more!).
Remember- it’s only 7 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.
6 large green onions (also called “spring” onions).
2 green peppers.
1 or 2 cans of tomatoes (diced or whole)
1 container (10 oz. or so) mushrooms.
1 bunch of celery.
half a head of cabbage.
1 package spice only soup mix (optional, but try to keep it as low in sodium as possible).
1 cube of low sodium bouillon.
1 48oz can Low Sodium V8 juice (optional).
Season to taste with pepper, parsley, curry, garlic powder, etc. (Little to NO SALT!).
Slice green onions, put in a pot on medium heat and start to sauté with cooking spray. Do this until the onions are whiter/clearer in color (about 4-6 minutes).
Cut green pepper stem end off, then cut pepper in half to take out the seeds and membrane. Cut the green pepper into bite size pieces and add to pot.
Take the outer leafs layers off the cabbage, cut into bite size pieces, add to pot.
Clean carrots, mushrooms, and celery, cut into bite size pieces and toss them in. Add tomatoes now, too.
If you would like a spicy soup, add a small amount of curry or cayenne pepper now.
For seasonings, you can use a spice soup packet of your choice (no noodles!) or use beef or chicken bouillon cubes. These cubes are optional, and you can add spices you like instead (make sure not to add much salt, if any at all).
Use about 12 cups of water (or 8 cups and the 48 oz. of Low Sodium V8 juice), cover and put heat on low. Let soup simmer for a long time – about 2 hours or until vegetables are tender.
There is another recipe that consists of vegetables and milk. The recipe makes 24 cups of soup; each cup carries a mere 66 calories. So a person who has 2 cups of soup per meal, a few cups of coffee, the allotted glass of milk, the fat-free salad dressing, and 6 pieces of fruit (2 apples, 2 oranges, 2 peaches) on day one will net 860 calories. On day five, the addition of a hefty 6-ounce portion of fish and 6 ounces of chicken could raise the calorie total as high as 1,030 for the day. But as dieters tire of the cabbage soup and free foods, calories could drop even lower than 800 per day. In short, this an extremely low-calorie diet.
