How the Cabbage Soup Diet Works

The Cabbage Soup Diet is a weight loss system that was originally developed to help people lose weight after undergoing surgical procedures. The theory behind the diet is that if dieters stick to eating cabbage soup for the majority of their meals, then they will be able to lose a lot of weight in just seven days.

Like most other fad diets, the Cabbage Soup Diet is something that may be able to help people lose weight, but not in a very healthy way. Therefore, it is hard to take it very seriously since it wasn’t even designed to help people over the long term.

Do Dieters Lose Weight on the Cabbage Soup Diet?

There is a very good chance that people will lose weight while on the Cabbage Soup Diet simply because they will be consuming far fewer calories than they are used to. In fact, just about all of their meals will consist of cabbage soup, which is less than 100 calories per helping. That is not only an extremely low calorie count for a meal, it is also very unhealthy if it is the only meal people are eating.

The Cabbage Soup Diet also lacks an exercise program, so people may be able to lose weight, but they will not be able to get toned at the same time. That just adds to the “fad” label, since it is a quick hit diet rather than a full-fledged weight loss program.

Level of Effort

It may seem like the Cabbage Soup Diet is a very simple weight loss system, but the truth is that it is very hard to get through a week of eating basically one meal three times a day. Not only that, the majority of dieters who try to use this diet program will find themselves craving food pretty much 24 hours a day, so it can be extremely challenging to get through. Even if dieters enjoy the taste of cabbage soup, they will probably give up on the Cabbage Soup Diet after a couple of days.


Even as a short-term diet, the Cabbage Soup Diet is hard to recommend since it is one of the least nutritional weight loss programs around. It may be one of the least expensive diets, but that does not make it worth doing. Its effects are short lived and the majority of people who even attempt the Cabbage Soup Diet will end up giving up anyways, which makes it a pretty pointless weight loss program to attempt.

Breakfast on the Soup Diet

The Cabbage Soup Diet is a seven-day eating plan designed to produce rapid, short-term weight loss. Termed a "fad diet" by the Mayo Clinic, the soup diet is not recommended as a long-term diet plan and should be discontinued after one week, followed by two weeks of balanced eating, according to nutritionist Katherine Zeratsky. Breakfast on the soup diet is not a special meal, but part of the day's "allowed foods." The daily list provides foods for the entire day. Check with your doctor before beginning this or any new diet plan.

Video of the Day

Every day on the cabbage soup diet, you are able to eat soup as often as you like, including for breakfast. The recipe varies, but always includes plenty of boiled cabbage in addition to other low-calorie vegetables such as onions, celery, mushrooms and carrots. Broth usually consists of tomato juice and chicken broth, with seasonings of your choice, excluding salt.

The first day, the soup diet allows you to eat all the fruit you want, excluding bananas due to their high starch content. Avoid fruit juices, fruit snacks and fruit flavorings. Choose, whole fruits in addition to cabbage soup. For breakfast try orange wedges, grapefruit segments and pineapple chunks for a tropical start to your day.

The second day prohibits any fruit, but allows all the fresh vegetables you like for breakfast and throughout the day, cooked or raw. Avoid starchy vegetables, such as corn or potatoes. Abstain from legumes, as well. Dinner allows for one baked potato with a small amount of butter. For breakfast, saute onions, peppers and mushrooms in non-stick spray and top your bowl of soup with the extra vegetables.

The third day is a combination of fruits and vegetables, but no potato at the end of the day. For breakfast, consider a bowl of fresh fruits cut-up in bite-sized pieces in various colors with a sprig of mint. Save the veggies for lunch and dinner, but include soup with your breakfast if you are still hungry.

The fourth day allows for up to eight bananas and as much skim milk as you care to drink. For breakfast, try a bowl of sliced bananas with skim milk poured over top. Have soup, too, if you like.

Almost to the end of the week, add meat to your plan. Have up to 20 oz. of beef or chicken without fat or skin throughout the day. For breakfast, add a chopped chicken breast to your bowl of cabbage soup.

Days 6 and 7

Day 6 allows as much meat and green leafy vegetables as you like, plus more soup. Breakfast might include ground turkey with zucchini slices and tomatoes. Day 7 includes as much brown rice as you care for, in addition to unsweetened cranberry juice, vegetables and more soup. For breakfast, have juice and a bowl of rice to start your last day.

Be sure to speak with your doctor before beginning this low-calorie diet. Side effects of very low-calorie diets include fatigue, nausea, constipation and could lead to gallstones or malnutrition if continued for too long. Also, be sure to drink plenty of water.
