Cabbage Soup Diet
The cabbage soup diet was allegedly created in the 90s for patients recovering from surgery. A watercress version is also available but most types of vegetable soup would do. Some versions claim that cabbage has unique fat burning properties this is however untrue. The weight loss is because of the low calorie contained in the diet .
During the cabbage soup diet you can eat as much cabbage soup as you want throughout the whole seven days. Some additional foods have been added to the recent versions of this diet.

Cabbage Soup Diet: Verdict
Not a viable diet for someone who needs to lose more than a few pounds and should not be followed for more than seven days an have at least two weeks before restarting (though I am sure you wouldn’t want to see another cabbage for quite a while after a week).
The weight loss will unfortunately only be temporary. The cabbage soup diet is however a better option than the average junk food diet and it is perfect for one-off rapid weight loss before a big occasion.
