Cabbage Soup Diet Weight Loss That Really Works so Fast

By: Dede Purneim

On the top of the list of quick-fix fad diets is the cabbage soup diet weight loss. It should not be followed as a long-term eating plan, as it is dangerously low in calories and could do more harm than good.

The Cabbage Soup Diet offers fast weight loss, but it is completely lacking in nutrition, flavor and variety. You'll consume mostly soups of cabbage, onion, celery, carrots, tomatoes and mushrooms. Nutritionists argue that the pounds shed are more likely attributed to the dramatic and dangerous loss in calories and not the proposed fat-burning power found in the cabbage. This diet deprives your body of essential nutrients and has been correlated to difficulty concentrating, feeling light-headed and weak.

Here is a recipe for the cabbage soup diet, if you elect not to take it in pill form:

Ingredients of the cabbage soup diet weight loss:
1 head cabbage
6 green onions
2 green peppers
1 can diced tomatoes

  1. Cut the vegetables into bite size pieces.
