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.

We Tried It: Cabbage Soup Diet - Day 2

Cabbage Soup Day 2

Just in case you were wondering, Karlie and I did have a plan when we started the cabbage soup diet. First we thought seven days wasn't so bad. For Karlie, well she felt she was eating kind of "bad." She was going out to lunch and dinner a lot and wanted to do a sort of detox to get back on track. For me, I wanted to kick start a healthy eating plan and try to drop a few pounds. We thought we would try this out and see what happened.

Day 2 - Menu:

Vegetable Day!

Eat all the vegetables you want - fresh, raw, or cooked vegetables of your choice. Stay away from dry beans, peas and sweet corn. Reward yourself with a big baked potato with butter for dinner. Eat as much soup as you like but no fruit for today. Drink plenty of water and take a multivitamin.

Creative Creations:Be creative with your veggies! Think it might be hard eating vegetables for breakfast? Try baking butternut squash pieces with a sprinkle of cinnamon. For lunch, try sauteing a combination of vegetables together with a diced tomato sauce.

For dinner, add some steamed broccoli on top of your baked potato.

Fat Burning Soups For Weight Loss

No massive shift in what you eat (you can still eat the same foods you do now).

No need to exercise or working out.

No silly dietary restrictions to follow.

No starving yourself and feeling miserable.

And just picture the envious glances you’d enjoy from the opposite sex and the astonishment of your friends because you’ve lost a total of 55 pounds.

Too good to be true?

That’s what Emily Sanders of Bristol in the UK though – until she actually achieved it.

Just look at her amazing transformation …
