The Cabbage Soup
Lunch: For the stir fry I used yellow peppers, bean sprouts, spring onions, half a yellow onion, carrots, mushrooms, broccoli and brown rice if you are following this diet to a T exclude the brown rice. for the sauce I used what I had at home which was a mix of soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sesame seed oil, and malt vinegar.
Step 1: buy all the fruits and vegetables that you like since that will be the majority of what you will be eating for the next 3 days
Lunch: To turn a plate of mangos into lunch add paprika, sea salt, and fresh lime juice. This was all i had at home for more flavour you can add cilantro or chilli flakes for a spicier mango dish.
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.
Vegetables: Eat until you are stuffed with all the 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.
Mix Days One and Two: Eat all the soup, fruits and vegetables you want. No Baked Potato.
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.
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 beef on one of the beef days (but not both).
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.
Brown rice, unsweetened fruit juices and vegetables: Again stuff, stuff, stuff yourself. Be sure to eat your soup at least once this day.
The Cabbage Soup Diet is not suitable for long-term weight loss. The Diet is a low-fat, high-fiber diet that will help you get into shape fast before you embark on a more moderate long-term eating plan. Many struggle in long-term plans due to lack of willpower.
