This diet is great if you want to lose half a stone for a wedding or you are going on holiday and want to look hot on the beach. One thing to expect though is a small weight gain the second week after you have followed this diet.
In general I have found that on the Cabbage Soup Diet you will lose 7-10 pounds and then gain about 1.5 pounds the week after.
The people that have the biggest weight loss with this will be those that were not on a diet to begin with as they have had the biggest drop in calories. When it takes most of us eight weeks to lose 10 pounds imagine how amazing it would be to lose it all in 7 short days?
Today you can eat as much soup as you like and as much fruit as you like as long as you don’t have any bananas.
What I say in my internet marketing business applies to this too – always think outside the box. Here is Dominic’s Low Calorie Fruit Salad Recipe and a favourite of mine for when I am on Slimming World or on the Cabbage Soup Diet. When I did the Cabbage Soup Diet last week I had a bowl with my large jacket potato with butter along with lots of broccoli and spinach.
If you one of those that picks during meals chop up some raw carrot and pick on it during the day. Day three is not much different to what you have already done and is a mixture of day 1 and 2 combined minus the jacket potato. On this day I had steamed vegetables for dinner and for my evening meal I had soup with my fruit salad. I was amazed by how the combination of bananas and milk could honestly make you feel so satisfied.
I don’t think I have drank milk since I was little and I was surprised after years on skimmed milk how tasty skimmed actually is.
And if you can’t be bothered to eat so many bananas mix it up to make a really nice banana smoothie. I was actually still full from my bananas and milk the next day so it sure does make you feel better on your diet. What I loved about this is because I started it on Monday my weekend family meals fell at the same time as the day 5 and 6 meat meals that were perfect. It’s also important today that you drink lots of water (minimum 2 litres) to flush out all the fruit, vegetables and milk that you have had over the last few days. Time to celebrate you made it to the final day and your treat is brown rice, unsweetened fruit juices and vegetables. Unfortunately I am not that fussed for unsweetened fruit juice and I can’t source brown rice so today for me is a day of vegetables and soup. If you can get brown rice I would suggest that you have a plate of brown rice and steamed vegetables for lunch and dinner.
So there you have it you have made it through hell week and completed the 7 Day Plan Cabbage Soup Diet so well done for that and good luck with it! And don’t forget to grab my Low Calorie Cabbage Soup Recipe and then get started with your mega weight loss journey. It is also very good if you are stuck in a rut with your weight loss and you want to give your body a kick in the right direction. It is very calorie restricted so don’t be surprised if like me, that at times you feel light headed or suffer the odd headache as a result.
What if you made up a huge bowl of fruit salad in the fridge and whenever you felt hungry you could head to the fridge and help yourself to some. If you have made it this far today is all about vegetables and soup and you can eat as many of them as you like.
The butter had ran out of my jacket and gave me the nicest buttery spinach I have ever tasted.
As today along with your soup you can have up to 8 bananas and as much skimmed milk as you can drink. So before you start I suggest that you look at the diet plan and what start date would work best for you. Your are having beef tomorrow so unless you like a lot of beef if I was you I would choose the chicken or salmon.
I notice that I have not used as much of my soup as planned so I have 2 days worth which will make today more bearable. And my posts are all about be battling the pounds and getting back to the size 10 I was when I met my husband 13 years ago. And if you can make yourself through hell week then the 7 day plan cabbage soup diet will give you serious results.
The reason it does this is that you are having a very restricted calorie count, then the week after you are returning to your normal diet and your body is experiencing a big jump in calories, so this creates a small weight gain while your body adjusts.
Those that aid weight loss are the green ones though stay away from garden peas and sweetcorn.
Then in the evening I had chicken breast with some of my soup poured over and it tasted amazing.
