Cabbage Soup Recipe
- 6 large green onions
- 2 green peppers
- 1 or 2 cans of tomatoes (diced or whole)
- 3 Carrots
- 1 Container (10 oz. or so) Mushrooms
- 1 bunch of celery
- half a head of cabbage
- 1 package Lipton soup mix
- 1 or 2 cubes of bouillon (optional)
- 1 48oz can V8 juice (optional)
- Season to taste with salt, pepper, parsley, curry, garlic powder, etc.
Slice green onions, put in a pot and start to saute with cooking spray.
Cut green pepper stem end off and cut in half, take the seeds and membrane out. Cut the green-pepper into bite size pieces and add to pot.
Take the outer leafs layers off the cabbage, cut into bite size pieces, add to pot.
Clean carrots, cut into bite size pieces, and add to pot.
Slice mushrooms into thick slices, add to pot.
If you would like a spicy soup, add a small amount of curry or cayenne pepper now.
You can use beef or chicken bouillon cubes for seasonings. These have all the salt and flavors you will need.
Use about 12 cups of water (or 8 cups and the V8 juice), cover and put heat on low. Let soup cook for a long time - two hours works well. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

If you have a special occasion coming up or you simply need to lose weight fast, the Cabbage Soup Diet may be just what you need.
Although not suitable for long-term weight loss, the Cabbage Soup Diet is a low-fat, high-fiber diet that will help you get into shape fast before you embark on a more moderate long-term eating plan.
Do you have questions about the Cabbage Soup Diet? There’s a good chance you’ll find your answer on my Cabbage Soup Frequently Asked Questions page.
Pros and Cons of the Cabbage Soup Diet
Pros: You’ll lose weight fast, and for the week, you can eat as much of the foods listed in the program as you want. Although the diet is only for seven days (and shouldn’t be followed for longer), it provides a great “kick-start” for a more moderate diet.
Cons: Some people find the soup bland. Others report feeling light-headed, weak, and have suffered from decreased concentration (although I hear that many people think the diet is worth the effort anyway, since they lose so much weight!).
What the Cabbage Soup Diet is NOT
The Cabbage Soup Diet is sometimes referred to as the “Mayo Clinic Diet,” the “Sacred Heart Hospital Diet,” and by many other names. Interestingly, this diet is not affiliated with either the Mayo Clinic or the Sacred Heart Hospital system.
Number 1 Reason why the Cabbage Soup Diet Fails
As mentioned, the soup can tend to get a bit bland, especially since you are eating it several time a day….every day for a week. For this reason alone, a lot of people drop the diet.
To liven things up a bit, I came up with a couple different spice packs that can be added to your soup recipe. These packs are premeasured, all that you have to do is to add one of pack per batch of your cabbage soup. The soup comes out very tasty – and for that reason it helps you stay on your diet. Click here to find out more about my spice packs.
The Problem With Most “Mainstream” Diets
Most diets – especially “mainstream” diets, and those recommended by major medical institutions – work slowly but surely, resulting in around 1 pound of weight loss per week.
This “slow and steady” way to lose weight is certainly healthy, but suffers from one major flaw: most people get discouraged and quit whatever diet they are on if they don’t see results quickly. This is how the Cabbage Soup Diet can be your savior and catalyst into a more long term solution.
Seven Keys to Success
- Follow the diet to the letter!
- Drink at least 4 glasses of water per day (or more!).
- Remember – it is only seven days long!
- Complement the diet with a quality daily multi-vitamin.
- Print information from this site and refer to it daily (especially the 7 Day Plan!).
- Eat plenty of soup – the more you eat, the more you should lose! Do not try to starve yourself or you’ll probably cheat (this is what we don’t want).
- Add my spice pack to liven up the soup to add variety and make it taste great. 🙂
Sometimes we all need to get away and recharge our batteries!

Cabbage Soup Diet FAQs
Do you have questions about the Cabbage Soup Diet?…
…I have the answers for you!
Between this page and my eBook that you can pick up for free off the homepage, I answer all the questions you can think of, so please review these valuable resources!
Yours in Cabbage,
Alcohol / Beverages
Can I drink alcohol during the week?
This week, avoid all alcohol. Many alcohols contain sugar, which you want to avoid this week. Drinking also often leads to over eating, and one drink usually leads to two..or three. Skip it this week! (No wine, beer, or light beer, either.)
Can I drink diet soda?
Skip the soda this week, diet included. Not only are there artificial sweeteners, even in the diet stuff, but (like alcohol) one usually leads to more. If you need caffeine, have unsweetened black tea or coffee.
What kind of juice can I drink? Is there any other unsweetened fruit juice that I can drink?
100% unsweetened cranberry juice is the only juice permitted this week.
What beverages are allowed?
Water! Additionally, you can also have unsweetened tea, unsweetened black coffee, and original V-8 juice. On your fruit days, you can also have 100% unsweetened cranberry juice. On Day 4 only, you can have skim milk (or non-fat soy).
I do not drink skim milk. What are some healthy alternatives for Day 4?
If you do not drink skim milk, you can try fat-free soy milk or rice milk. If you do not drink any kind of milk, have a serving or two or non-fat, plain yogurt, with as little sugars (and as few ingredients!) as you can find.
Can I add Splenda to my coffee or tea this week?
Not this week. Even though splenda is a “zero cal” sweetener, it does have artificial ingredients that we do not want this week. Lighten your tea with lemon or your coffee with a dash of skim milk.
Can I add Crystal Light to my water?
Like Splenda, even though it may have no calories, it still has artificial ingredients, including complex sugars, that we want to avoid. Flavor your water with lemon slices, watermelon cubes, sprigs of mint, or whatever you like that is fresh!
What should I do if I cheat?
Get over it quickly and continue on with the program. You don’t need to go back to Day 1. Just finish up the day you were on and move on to the next day.
I am thinking of cheating, what should I do?
I suggest you cheat small with whatever food you are craving. Personally, I always crave protein on days 1-3 so if I cheat I cook one egg or eat a piece of cheese. Go for a healthy cheat, not a giant piece of cake or something like that!
What are some healthy cheat I can have?
A couple healthy cheats include adding a TEAspoon of olive oil to your soup or using a small amount to sauté your veggies. You could also add a teaspoon of grated cheese or low fat mozzarella to your soup – but that’s per day not per bowl!
If I am doing this diet as a cleanse, can I still cheat and lose weight?
No. If you’re using the diet as a weeklong cleanse, you must not cheat or you will not be fully cleansed!
Feeling Off - Constipation/Dizzy/Not losing Weight
I have been getting headaches and feeling extremely dizzy and weak while also experiencing sleepless nights, is this normal?
The Cabbage Soup Diet will affect every person differently. Certain body types are able to handle the low-carb, low-protein, and low-cal diet better than other body types. If you let yourself get hungry then this diet will turn out to be extremely hard. You can try adding small portions of protein such as egg whites, chicken breast, and dried nuts to help with the symptoms. Or take an Excedrin or other headache reliever with caffeine.
After the third day, I noticed I was constipated. Is this normal?
If you’re feeling constipated any day of the diet, drink more water and eat more soup! If it persists, take a mild constipation reliever. You may also find that taking a walk will help to work through your system, plus you’re getting in some exercise, too. Bonus!
I am feeling bloated! Can I use gas relief pills?
Yes. You will probably feel quite bloated on this diet. If you tend to retain more water and feel bloated, I would even suggest that you begin taking simethicone pills, like Gas-X or Beano, as soon as you start the diet. If you wait until you have a stomach ache, you might suffer for a couple of hours until they start to work.
I am following the Diet perfectly, why am I not losing weight?
Couple reasons! First, perhaps you’re using too much salt or too many spices. Be careful of spices and bouillon cubes that are consumed. MSG will make you retain water for as long as 4 days. Continue drinking 8-10 glasses of water with this diet, it does work. Or, perhaps you’re adding things, like butter to your veggies. Instead of butter, try Pam Butter Spray instead. Butter contains a lot of excess calories and fat. Are you adding sugar to your fruits? Try a low calorie sweetener instead. Also, try to cut sugar where you can. Juice can be full of sugar, so omit that this week, too. And no diet soda!
