The diet commandments

Moses gave the 10 commandments; cabbage soup diet gives about 7. So there is no need to fret.

  1. The diet has to be strictly followed almost religiously.
  2. A minimum of 4 glasses of water per day have to be taken.
  3. Keep on reminding yourself that it will last only seven days.
  4. Have all the information you want handy so that referring is easy.
  5. Supplement the diet with a multivitamin tablet daily.
  6. Eat plenty of soup - as much as you want! Do not try to starve yourself or you'll probably cheat and break the diet.
  7. Try different spices to liven up the soup and add variety.

Cabbage is wonderfully high in nutrients, and could be considered the queen of vegetables. It's high in calcium and vitamin C in a very digestible form, as well as photo-nutrients that help prevent dementia and cancer. While the classic Cabbage Soup diet isn't the best thing to eat three times a day, Cabbage is a wonderful staple in any diet - especially if you are trying to lose weight, as it is so low in calories, and just packed with good food value.

I would suggest that instead of using cabbage as the meal that you substitute it for snacks and perhaps one meal each day. I lost 20 pounds in one month in this way. And it was not water weight. I was also working out at least 3 days per week.
