Cabbage diet plan

  • PDF

There are many different variations on the cabbage diet plan and it often depends on the dietician or personal trainer to create a particular plan for you but one of the benefits of a cabbage diet is that you can do it yourself at home if you wish. Before you consider starting a cabbage diet plan ensure that you have seen your doctor and you have discussed your plan of attack for the diet and also what you plan to do for the future! Many people use the cabbage soup diet to kick start a healthier long term eating change.

Whilst there are some differences amongst eating plans all recommend drinking at least 4-8 glasses of water a day and whilst soup is encouraged every day it is also recommended that you eat something other than the soup to ensure you don’t suffer from malnutrition whilst on the diet.

Here are a couple of example cabbage soup diet plans:

Day 1: Drink water, black coffee, unsweetened tea or cranberry juice. No bananas but as much fruit and cabbage soup as you want.

Day 2: As many low-calorie vegetables as you like, but steer clear of corn, beans and peas. Enjoy as much Cabbage soup as you like and also 1 baked potato with butter.

Day 3:  As much cabbage soup as you want as well as fruit and veggies as listed above.

Day 4: As well as plenty of water enjoy 2 glasses of skim milk and up to 8 bananas! As much Cabbage soup as you can eat, as per usual.

Day 5:  The standard Cabbage soup plus up to 20 ounces of chicken, beef or fish. Today you can also enjoy up to six fresh tomatoes. Make sure you drink at least 6 to 8 glasses of water.

Day 6: Unlimited veggies again today (with the aforementioned restrictions) as much Cabbage soup as you like and up to 3 beef steaks.

Day 7:  Good old Cabbage soup, unlimited veggies, some unsweetened fruit juice (as well as water) and up to 2 cups of brown rice.

Another slight variation to this eating plan is as follows:

Day 1: Any fruit (no bananas) plus Cabbage soup. Keep up the fluids black coffee, unsweetened tea, cranberry juice and water.
Day 2: Vegetables (these can be steamed, boiled or even raw) but avoid corn, dry beans and peas. You can also enjoy cabbage soup for dinner plus a baked potato with butter.
Day 3: Fruits and veggies plus Cabbage soup.
Day 4: Cabbage soup plus fat-free milk and also up to 8 bananas.
Day 5: More Cabbage soup but today you can eat up to 6 tomatoes and fish or meat (up to 450 grams).
Day 6: Some meat and veggies plus as much Cabbage soup as you can eat.
Day 7: Pure fruit juice is ok today along with brown rice, Cabbage soup and also vegetables.

As you can see from these 2 examples of cabbage diet plans there is not a whole lot of variation and both follow the core elements of the diet (plenty of cabbage soup and plenty of water!). Most doctors and Personal trainers/dieticians will add their own flair and personality into the mix so you may see a few more variations if you look a bit further into it but as always make sure you consult your own personal doctor and let them know all the details of the diet you plan to undertake so they can advise accordingly.

Happy cabbage dieting!
