Cabbage Soup Diet
A Fad Diet
The Cabbage Soup Diet is a 7-day fad diet of cabbage
soup plus a bizarre sequence of other foods. It is nothing more than a
weight loss gimmick. Some versions of the Cabbage Soup Diet claim that
cabbage has unique fat-burning properties. This is nonsense. Neither cabbage,
nor cabbage soup has any fat-burning properties.
Advantages of the Cabbage Soup Diet
It's better to eat cabbage soup than pizza, but as a diet it is neither
healthy nor sustainable. No dieter can expect to lose weight healthily
on a diet of cabbage soup.
Drawbacks of the Cabbage Soup Diet
Not sufficiently balanced and lacks important vitamins and minerals. It
does not help you to change your eating habits which is essential for
permanent weight loss.
Don't waste time on a fad diet. Cabbage soup is good weight loss food,
but is best consumed only as part of a sensible balanced diet.
A Note about Healthy Weight Control
Fad diets, unbalanced diets, diet pills, diet supplements, weight loss
surgery and other short term weight loss methods are not recommended for
permanent weight control. The best way to lose excess fat and maintain
a healthy weight in the long term is to follow a balanced calorie-controlled
diet (that improves your eating habits) and take regular aerobic exercise.
