Diet Plan

Day One: eat only fruit and as much soup as you like. Drink unsweetened tea, black coffee, cranberry juice and water.

Day Two: eat raw and cooked vegetables (avoid peas, sweetcorn, dry beans): at dinner reward yourself with a large baked potato and butter, and eat as much soup as you like, but no fruit.

Day Three: mix days one and two, eat as much fruit, vegetables and soup as you like but no baked potato.

Day Four: eat as many as eight bananas, skimmed milk and as much soup as you want.

Day Five: you may have 300-500g (10-20oz) beef (or chicken or fish) and a large tin or six fresh tomatoes. Try to drink 6-8 glasses of water and be sure to eat the soup at least once.

Day Six: eat 2-3 beef steaks with salad or fresh vegetables (no baked potato) and soup at least once.

Day Seven: brown rice, fresh vegetables and unsweetened fruit juice, eat as much as you like, plus soup at least once.

The Cabbage Soup Diet is based on a fat-burning soup that contains negligible calories. The more soup you eat the more weight you should lose, but do not eat soup only or you will become malnourished.

If the diet is correctly followed it should cleanse your system of impurities and give you a sense of well-being with weight loss. Avoid alcohol, bread and carbonated drinks. As with any other diet care is required and you should consult
your doctor if you have any health concerns.
