ABOUT THE DIET
Back To Top

The cabbage soup diet is based on the claim that cabbage has special fat burning abilities. This has not been scientifically proven, however, and so, many other vegetables will do if you do not like cabbage. This diet, like so many others, restricts overall calories and as a result, will cause people to lose weight. There are many different versions of this diet, and the traditional cabbage soup diet allows you to eat as much cabbage as you want througout the diet (this is once again based on the idea that cabbage will help you to burn fat).

DIET GUIDELINES
Back To Top

Example Daily Nutrition During the Diet:

Unlimited about of cabbage soup and fruits throughout the day (except bananas).

EXERCISE DURING THE DIET
Back To Top

Due to the restriction of calories, exercise during the diet would not be recommended. Exercise should only be performed when energy levels are high, and this diet does not allow for enough overall calories to guarantee that.

ADVANTAGES OF THE DIET
Back To Top

Using the cabbage soup diet, you will lose weight and you can also eat as much cabbage soup as you want throughout the diet. If you like cabbage, this will likely prevent you from cheating on the diet. The diet is also short - only seven days! Again, this will make cheating on the diet unlikely. It works fairly well for short term weight loss.

DISADVANTAGES OF THE DIET
Back To Top

If you don't like cabbage, there may be a problem - since unlimited cabbage throughout the diet may not be very appealling to you! Also, due to the restricted number of overall calories, you may feel low energy levels throughout the diet. The diet is also ineffective over the long term and is lacking in vitamins & minerals that are necessary to preserve a healthy body and mind.

CONCLUSION
Back To Top

Like many other diets, the cabbage soup diet works fairly well in the short term. However, any diet which is founded on the principle of restricting overall calories and not necessarily making healthier food choices coupled with exercise, will not work very well in the long term. You need to ask yourself if your goal is long term or short term weight loss before deciding to start a diet such as this.
