7-Day Diet Weight Loss Cabbage Soup
“How I lose 10 pounds in 7 days with this cabbage soup diet AKA Military diet!”
Watch me make this cabbage soup from start to finish!
I’m going to Disneyland next week and decided that I didn’t want to take my muffin top with me, especially since I have this cute form-fitting shirt that I want to wear so bad…. WITHOUT SPANX!!
When I need to lose my gut or 10 pounds quickly I turn to 3 diets that never lets me down; my green monster smoothie diet, The 10 Day Green Smoothie Cleanse and my newest love, the 7-day cabbage soup diet!!
Here’s Why I Adore The Cabbage Soup Diet:
- It works!! It’s not science. Cut your calories, unhealthy sugar, starches, for a period of time while drinking lots of water and you’ll lose weight quickly.
- It’s quick!! By the morning of my 8th day, the scale is always 7-10 lbs lighter. My clothes fit differently, and my usually bloated gut is flat. I love it.
- I cheat!! I’ve discovered that I can cheat a bit on this diet. I’ve snuck a muffin in a few times. BEST. MUFFIN.EVER!! I’ve also used some condiments to spice things up.
- Great for pre-diets! This diet is GREAT for the start of a real diet/eating plan. You know, one where you eat a variety of healthy foods and a decent balance of calories. Sometimes you just need a jumpstart, a cleanse, a boost of confidence on the scale. This diet does it!
Side Note: If you’re interested in trying the green monster smoothie, click here to see how I prep my smoothies!
I know some people HATE these type of quick diets, but I love them! They work well for me and the weight stays off as long as I eat a balanced post-diet. If you jump back to eating bad sugars and carbs right away, you’re going to gain the weight back quickly.
Pace yourself. I mainly use this diet for quick weight loss for an event, the week before Thanksgiving or to jumpstart my spring dieting before swimsuit season.
As always consult a doc before cutting your calories like this!
What is the 7-Day Diet (Cabbage Soup Diet)??
OK so let’s talk about the 7-day cabbage soup diet! It’s an old diet that has been around for YEARS and revised over and over again. You are likely to find several different versions online.
Lately, these 7-day diets have become popular. Even Dr. Oz has one. I first read about it on a blog I stumbled upon and thought I’d give it a try, didn’t expect much though. Now I’m hooked!
I NEVER thought I’d like this cabbage soup, but it’s so good!
How Do You Do The 7 -Day Diet?
On the 7-day diet, you follow a specific eating plan every day. Along with eating these foods, you are allowed to have cabbage soup aka wonder soup aka weight loss soup aka miracle soup aka weight watcher soup (so many names for this soup.) whenever you’d like.
This unlimited soup rule is what drew me to the 7-day cabbage soup diet. I love that I can eat this soup in unlimited quantities. I HATE being hungry, and I will not stick to any diet if I’m hungry. Point. Blank. Period. Don’t forget you MUST drink eight glasses of water each day. My results vary if I slack on water, but 7-10 pounds is what I usually lose.
The Cabbage Soup Recipe ( Wonder Soup)
Now about this weight loss Cabbage Soup (Wonder Soup), most websites featuring this diet says you should boil the vegetables in water, uh…no ma’am!! I’ve always used chicken broth or vegetable broth with seasoned canned tomatoes, and it has never hindered my weight loss.
There is NO WAY I would be eating this soup every day if I made it with water. Yuck! Throughout the diet, I also use salt (very lightly), pepper, lots of herbs & seasonings, olive oil, and a tad of butter on potato day. I also add 0-5 calorie flavorings to my water to make sure I get in all my water if needed. These changes have never affected my results.

My 7-Day Diet Cabbage Soup Diet Journal & Meal Suggestions
(Update: I now add detox tea with a squirt of fresh lemon to my mornings. WOW is all I can say! Try it! I use Total Tea but any detox tea will work)
Day 1- Eat nothing but fruit today (except for bananas) and as much of the diet cabbage soup as you’d like. You should try to stick with fruits with lower sugar content like apples, blueberries, etc. I enjoy eating baked cinnamon apples (using gala or Honeycrisp apples) in the morning, a large fruit salad and cabbage soup for lunch, and cabbage soup and a melon salad for dinner. Get your crunchy fix with dried fruits. Snack on fruit throughout the day. Frozen pineapples and frozen grapes make delicious treats. Also, frozen watermelon blended makes a refreshing, natural slushy. Today wasn’t as bad as I’d expected.
Day 2- Eat nothing but vegetables (except corn or other starchy veggies). However, you do get to start the day with a baked potato (russet or sweet). You will LOVE having this baked potato trust me! I never thought I’d be so happy to eat a baked potato in the morning! I prefer a sweet potato. For breakfast, I dice my sweet potato into cubes, sprinkled with a little olive oil and cinnamon and roast it in the oven along with some bell peppers and onions. For lunch, I do the cabbage soup, and a salad sprinkled with salt, pepper and olive oil. It’s pretty good. For dinner, I do rice cauliflower topped with a stir fry of zucchini, roasted carrots, and bell peppers with light soy sauce (cheating). I snack on baked spinach chips. Today was ok.
Day 3- Today you eat fruits AND veggies (except bananas, corn, and other starchy vegetables) You also don’t get a potato today, sucks! I just do a repeat of day one and two for my foods.
Day 4- Today you eat only bananas and milk/yogurt. This day is the DUMBEST day by far. I hate it. You can just have bananas and milk or unsweetened yogurt. Boooooo, but let’s make the best of it! For breakfast, I do a banana smoothie made with bananas, almond milk, and greek yogurt. For lunch, I eat cabbage soup. For dinner, I do another large banana smoothie and more cabbage soup. I make banana ice cream, by freezing banana slices and then blending them. I also eat some dried banana chips. It’s not that difficult of a day, very dull and if you hate bananas, I feel sorry for you babes.
Day 5- Today eat only tomatoes (6-8) and protein like fish, turkey, and chicken. I had no problems with this day since I love meat and was happy to get it! I made turkey sausage patties for breakfast topped with tomatoes. For lunch, I had grilled chicken topped with tomatoes seasoned with salt, basil, pepper and cabbage soup. For dinner, I had more wonder soup, but I added turkey breakfast sausage to it and more tomatoes. Very filling. I got tired of the soup on this day. Ugh!!
Day 6- Today its protein and veggies- Unlike yesterday you can have other vegetables besides tomatoes. I had turkey sausage and roasted veggies for breakfast. I had a stir-fry with chicken and veggies for lunch, so good. I had spaghetti squash with tomato sauce and ground turkey for dinner. Spaghetti squash is off limits (starchy), but I had to have it! Today was the best! I didn’t have any cabbage soup today. I was feeling over cabbage.
Day 7- Today it’s just fruits, vegetables, and juices. Booo. I hated today. I wanted more meat. Thank God it’s the last day. The scale says I’m 7 pounds lighter this morning, so that was great to see. I feel clean inside. I’m hungry today though, super hungry! For breakfast, I make a huge fruit and veggie smoothie using spinach, apples, oranges, grapes, and water. It was so divine and sweet! Kept me full until it was time for lunch! For lunch, I do a large salad, cabbage soup, and watermelon slushie. For dinner, I do another riced cauliflower stir fry with roasted veggies. I snack on baked cinnamon apples and cantaloupe.
Day 8- 10lbs down this morning and I can see it!! Tummy is nice and flat, and my face looks much slimmer. My husband notices my weight loss too. He’s not happy that my booty looks smaller. Neither am I! My fingers are slimmer, and my wedding ring fits different. Today I paced myself with food and will do so for the next week while on vacation. No sugary foods or bad carbs. I continue with a diet full of fruits, veggies, and lean meats. I incorporate eggs, oatmeal, & whole grain pasta and bread, honey and stevia as a sweetener. My calorie intake is now at it’s recommended level for a healthy weight-loss w/ exercise. I FEEL GREAT!!

Theoretically, having more choices is a good thing.
But when ordering a coffee at Starbucks is like doing a mini dissertation in some vaguely Romantic language, and when picking out a jar of jelly at the supermarket requires an encyclopedic knowledge of every berry known to man, choices start to get overwhelming. Which is why, at the end of the day, when somebody asks, “Soup or salad?” most of us would rather bury our faces under the napkin than make even one more decision. (We can make one choice for you, though: Skip the bread roll, which certainly isn’t on the list of The 20 Best Carbs for a Flat Belly!)
But your soups are critical. You know how the USDA wants you to get between five and nine servings of fruits and vegetables a day? And how, if you count the little red crispy things in the box of Franken Berry you ate that morning, maybe you got two? Well, think of the soup as your extra credit, your personal ace in the hole—the tiny little bit you do on the side that skyrockets your daily nutritional score from a C+ to an A-. A well-crafted soup can give you three or four servings of vegetables and fruits, and presto, you go from failing the nutritional test to passing with flying colors.
Here are 20 of our favorite weight-loss soups for fall, compliments of Cook This, Not That! and our friends at some of our favorite websites and blogs. And to make sure you maximize your soup benefits, be sure to avoid these 20 Worst Ingredients to Put Into Your Soup!
Crock Pot Black-Eyed Peas Stew
This fat-free vegan recipe will leave your mouth watering for more. Celery, carrots and onion (called “mirepoix,” which chefs use as the foundation for countless sauces and stocks) add flavor and antioxidants, while protein-rich black-eyed peas (which are loaded with folic acid) add heft to this easy slow-cooker dish. Click here for the full recipe for the Crock Pot Black-Eyed Peas Stew!
Easy Chicken and Rice Soup
This delicious recipe for a lunchtime (or anytime) soup couldn’t be easier. It’s just one of the 150+ belly-flattening recipes in the best-selling new Zero Belly Cookbook!
Butternut Squash Soup
We love tomato soup, but when it comes to vegetable soups, butternut is unbeatable. Beyond being super tasty, it’s also among the healthiest, packed with vitamin A, fiber, and omega-3s. Click here for Butternut Squash Soup!
Over the past 2 decades, tortilla soup has rivaled chicken soup as a comforting mainstay on major restaurant menus. Between the pulled chicken, the soothing tomato broth, and the pile of fixings, what’s not to love? How about a bowl of soup with 86 percent of your day’s sodium allotment? Unless you learn to enjoy it at home, that’s what you’re likely to get. Click here for the Cook This, Not That! recipe for Tortilla Soup!
Nearly 9 out of 10 Americans don’t consume enough fruits and vegetables on a daily basis. This hodgepodge soup will go a long way in making sure you’re not one of them. Vary the specific vegetables depending on what’s in your fridge and what looks good in the market, but be sure to finish with a spoonful of jarred pesto, which helps tie the whole bowl together. Click here for the Cook This, Not That! recipe for Minestrone with Pesto.
Traditionally, broccoli-Cheddar soup is about the cheese, the broccoli playing second fiddle to a bowl of glorified fondue. We turn the tables on tradition, giving broccoli its proper due and using only a handful of sharp Cheddar to give this soup a rich, creamy texture and beer—preferably a full-flavored ale like Bass—to give it body and soul. Just 8 ounces is needed, which leaves you 4 to sip on while the soup simmers away. Click here for the full Broccoli-Cheddar Soup!
Baked Potato Soup
In its normal restaurant iteration, this is the only soup that can compete with broccoli-Cheddar soup or clam chowder in terms of sheer caloric impact. Most versions you’ll find start with a base of heavy cream, making for a bowl that can easily pack 400 calories or more. We slice the calories dramatically by switching to chicken stock as the foundation, then adding a splash of half-and-half. The creamy potato flavor still shines through, and the bacon, cheese, and Tabasco give it the indulgent taste of a fully loaded spud. Add a bowl of mixed greens tossed with olive oil and balsamic and you’ve got dinner. Click here for the full recipe for Baked Potato Soup!
Asian Beef Noodle Soup
When it comes to soups that serve as meals, no one can touch the Asian cuisines. From the thick, heady ramens of Japan to the funky, darkly satisfying beef noodle soups of China, to the spice-suffused bowls of pho from Vietnam, the entire continent seems to have mastered the art of transforming a few scraps of meat and vegetables into a magical eating experience. The slow-cooker soup here takes a cue from all three, combining a rich ginger- and soy-spiked broth with chunks of fork-tender beef, a tangle of springy noodles, and—for a fresh, high note to pair with the dark, brooding ones—a pile of fresh bok choy. This is no appetizer soup; this is a full-on meal. Click here for the full recipe!
Ever feel the urge to cool off on a sweltering summer day with a bowl of hot tomato soup? Apparently the Spaniards didn’t, either, which is why they created gazpacho to fend off the oppressive heat of August in Andalusia. Beyond beating the heat, gazpacho is also best in August and September because tomatoes are at their peak in late summer when they’re sweet and ripe and cheap. Gazpacho is a garden in a bowl, which means it’s better for you than plain, one-dimensional tomato soup. Click here for the free Cook This, Not That!’s Gazpacho!
Homemade Beef Barley Soup
This luxurious soup spotlighting barley, from The Almond Eater, packs an impressive 16 grams of protein. High in vitamin A and selenium, we’re going back for seconds of this tasty soup. Click here for the full Homemade Beef Barley Soup!
Pumpkin and Cauliflower Soup with Coconut Milk, Coriander, and Cilantro
File this under awesome: Just one cup of cooked pumpkin has only 49 calories and contains 3g of fiber. Dairy-free, this soup relies on creamy coconut milk and canned pumpkin for its rich base. It’s from our friends at Hello Fresh—click here for the full recipe for Pumpkin and Cauliflower Soup with Coconut Milk, Coriander, and Cilantro.
Vegetable Quinoa Soup
Oh quinoa, let us count the ways we love you (Oh wait, we counted 7 fat-burning ways to cook with you right here!). Garnish with as much parsley as you want to boost this soup’s antioxidant content, or mix it up and swap parsley for cilantro. Click here for how to make it, from our friends at The Almond Eater!
Healthy Asian Soba Noodle Soup
Healthy soup gets an Asian flair with the help of soba noodles, vibrant veggies like bok choy and carrots, and a hint of umami from tamari (which is healthy aficionado slang for healthier soy sauce). Click here to get the free recipe for Healthy Asian Soba Noodle Soup, compliments of the Fitchen!
Potato and Kale Soup
This wintry soup is just begging for a cozy fireplace to sit by and slink into a corner with your nourishing bowl of veggies, chicken breast and more. Click here to discover The Almond Eater’s Potato and Kale Soup!
Most people expect a bowl of soup so thick and creamy you can stand a spoon up in it, but truth is, clam chowder, real clam chowder, has always been about the clams, with a thin but bracing broth of clam juice and a hit of dairy. We chose milk, which makes a light, clean, low-calorie chowder that won’t sit in your stomach all afternoon. There is, however, one item we won’t compromise on: bacon, whose smoky flavor pairs perfectly with the brine of the clams. You don’t need much—just one strip per serving. For the Ultimate Cook This, Not That! Clam Chowder, click here!
French Onion Soup
We’re not going to lie: Good French onion soup takes time. But it takes almost no effort, other than fighting back the tears as you chop your way through the five onions. And wouldn’t you rather deal with a few errant tears than with a lackluster, overpriced bowl of soup that packs as much saturated fat as 20 strips of bacon and more sodium than nine bags of Lay’s potato chips, like those at many chain restaurants? Now that’s a real reason to cry. Click here for the astonishingly rich Weight-Loss French Onion Soup!
Italian Meatball Soup
Order a plate of spaghetti and meatballs in Italy and you’ll likely leave your waiter dumbfounded, scratching his head for an answer. That’s because one of America’s favorite Italian dishes is a purely American invention, one that generally hinges on our typical tenets of excess. In Italy, polpettine are more likely to be enjoyed in a lighter fashion, either by themselves or in a soup like the one below. The pasta is still there (albeit a much smaller portion of it), but the broth houses a handful of stellar vegetables and serves to keep the meatballs moist and luscious. Though it’s light in calories, this is still a potent bowl of goodness—served with a lightly dressed salad, it makes for an incredible weekday dinner. See for yourself with the recipe for Italian Meatball Soup!
Italian Sausage Soup
The best definition of comfort food is the food Mom made when you were growing up. Matt’s mom made Italian sausage soup, a deceptively simple but wonderfully soothing bowl of meat, vegetables, and pasta—like chicken soup for the Italian soul. You can load this one full of vegetables, doubling the amount used below, and end up with a chunky, sausage-strewn minestrone. Either way, this soup is hearty enough to work as dinner on its own. Click here for the amazing Eat This, Not That! recipe for Italian Sausage Soup!
Mom’s Chicken Noodle Soup
Curer of colds, warmer of hearts, soother of souls: Chicken noodle soup does everything a comfort food is supposed to do, and does so without a hefty caloric price tag. But steer clear of canned chicken soup: Not only is it sparse on chicken and vegetables, a single cup can carry up to half a day’s worth of sodium. This version is light on the salt, but so loaded with chunky vegetables and shredded chicken that it could be dinner on its own. Click here for Mom’s Chicken Noodle Soup!
Split Pea Soup
Split peas rank up there as one of the heroes of the health-food world, boasting deep reserves of fiber, B vitamins, and dozens of other vital nutrients. But despite their reputation as a straightlaced superfood, something magical happens to split peas when combined with a bit of smoky ham and a long, slow simmer. Slowly they begin to break down, commingling with the ham and the other vegetables to create a thick, creamy broth that could warm even the most frigid soul on a long winter day.
