Have you heard about losing weight with the cabbage soup diet? This is a diet that is designed to enable you to lose 10 pounds in just seven days and during that time you don’t feel hungry. During the seven days, you can eat as much of the low-calorie soup as you like along with some other foods that are set out in the diet.
If you have been wondering what the recipe is for this cabbage soup diet then wonder no more. Here is the diet:
* 2 green peppers
* 6 large green onions
* 1 to 2 cans of diced or whole tomatoes
* 3 carrots
* 1 bunch of celery
* 1 container (around 10 oz.) mushrooms
* Half a cabbage
* 1 pack Lipton soup mix
* 1 or 2 cubes bouillon (optional)
* 1 48 oz can V8 juice (optional)
* 12 cups water if not using V8 juice
Put all the ingredients into a big pot and boil for a couple of hours. You can sauté the onions prior to adding the other ingredients if you prefer, but it isn’t necessary. There is no need to add salt as the Lipton soup mix and bouillon will give it enough salt and flavor.
Keep the soup in the fridge and this quantity should last you for the first few days of the diet.
If you find that the soup is too bland for your liking then you can add a little salt, pepper, curry, parsley, garlic, or other calorie-free spices.
In addition to the soup you can also eat specific foods on certain days as follows:
Even though you can eat these other foods you should have at least one serve of soup each day. You can eat as much of the foods allowed on a particular day except those with limited amounts.
This diet is so effective because sticking with these foods means that you are not consuming enough calories to put on weight. The soup has hardly any calories and even combined with the other foods you will still come in at under 1000 calories each day.
The cabbage soup is very easy to make, and you can make up a big batch of it that will last a few days and just reheat single servings when required. The other foods allowed are also very easy to prepare.
You shouldn’t continue with this diet for more than seven days. If you have a lot of weight to lose then complete the seven days and then wait at least a week before doing the cycle again. During the week that you aren’t doing the diet, you can eat normally but try not to overeat.
The recipe for the cabbage soup diet is simple and effective so why not give it a go.
