Have you heard about reducing weight with the Cabbage Soup Diet also known as the Mayo Clinic Diet or Sacred Heart Hospital Diet?
Don’t feel bad neither did we. Although not a big fan of cabbage I successfully used this diet to lose 12 in seven days.
This is a diet plan is created to allow you to lose 10 pounds in simply seven days and throughout that time you don’t feel as though you are starving. Throughout the 7 days, you can eat as much of the low-calorie soup as you like in addition to some other foods that are set out in the diet plan.
- 2 green peppers
- 2 large onions or (6 big green onions)
- 1 to 2 cans of diced or entire tomatoes
- 3 carrots
- 1 lot of celery
- 1 container (around 10 oz.) mushrooms
- 1 head cabbage
- 1 pack Lipton soup mix
- 1 or 2 cubes bouillon (optional).
- 1 48 oz can V8 juice (optional).
- 12 cups of water if not utilizing V8 juice.
This amount ought to last you for the first few days of the diet plan.
- Chop all vegetables into cubes.
- In a large pot, sauté onions in a small amount of oil (we used olive oil)
- Put the rest of the ingredients into the pot covering with water or V8 juice
- Bring to a boil then reduce the temperature to medium heat and boil to a texture that suits your taste (about 30–45 minutes).
Sauté the onions prior to including the other components is up to you to choose but we found that it did not make a difference and allowed us to skip the oil.
There is no need to include salt as the Lipton soup mix and bouillon will give it enough salt and taste.
In addition to the soup you can also eat specific foods on specific days as follows:
Day 1: Eat all the fruit you desire except for bananas.
Day 2: Eat all the veggies that you like plus you can consume a baked potato with butter.
Day 3: Eat all the vegetables and fruit you want other than for potatoes and bananas.
Day 4: Today you can eat bananas and have skim milk.
Day 5: Eat up to 6 tomatoes and 16 oz of beef which can also be substitute for chicken or fish.
Day 6: Eat all the veggies that you want except baked potato and you can consume 2 to 3 steaks.
Day 7: Eat brown rice, veggies, and unsweetened fruit juice.
Even though you can eat these other foods you ought to have at least one serving of the cabbage soup every day. You can eat as much of the foods allowed on a specific day other than those with limited amounts.
If you find that the soup is too boring for your preference then you can include a little salt, pepper, curry, parsley, garlic, or other calorie complimentary spices.
Due to the fact that sticking with these foods means that you are not taking in enough calories to put on weight, this diet plan is reliable. The soup has hardly any calories and even integrated with the other foods you will still manage to intake under 1000 calories each day.
The cabbage soup is very easy to make and you can make up a big batch of it that will last a few days allowing you to just reheat single portions when required. The other foods permitted are likewise extremely simple to prepare and keep on hand.
You shouldn’t continue with this diet for more than seven days. If you have a great deal of weight to lose then finish the seven days and after that wait at least a week before doing the cycle again. During the week that you aren’t doing the diet, you can eat generally but try not to overindulge.
