The diet mandate
The Cabbage Soup Diet plan is very strict. The idea is to eat as much cabbage soup every day - enough to keep the stomach full. Also specific additional foods can be had on each day of the seven day diet. No alcohol is allowed and other drinks are limited to water, and unsweetened fruit juice on days when fruit is allowed.
Day 1 : Cabbage soup + as much fruit as liked, excluding bananas.
Day 2 : Cabbage soup + vegetables including 1 jacket potato with a little butter.
Day 3 : Cabbage soup + fruit and vegetables excluding potatoes and bananas.
Day 4 : Cabbage soup + up to eight bananas + as much skimmed milk as desired.
Day 5 : Cabbage soup + up to 20 ounces of beef and up to six tomatoes. (if desired substitute broiled fish for the beef )
Day 6 : Cabbage soup + as much beef (if desired substitute chicken or fish for beef) + vegetables (excluding potatoes).
Day 7 : Cabbage soup + brown rice + vegetables (excluding potatoes) + unsweetened fruit juice .
