Cabbage Soup Diets
Easy if you like cabbage

The Cabbage Soup Diets are as follows:

  • 6 large onions, diced
  • 2 green capsicums, diced
  • 2 cans of tomatoes (diced or whole)
  • 250 g mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 bunch celery, chopped
  • 1/2 head cabbage, chopped
  • 3 carrots, sliced
  • 1 package dry onion soup mix
  • 1 or 2 cubes bouillon (optional)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3L of water or 2L of water and 1L V8 juice

For added flavour: Cayenne pepper, curry powder, mixed herbs or any other seasoning.

Onions are sautéed in a little oil or cooking spray until transparent, remaining veg is added gradually, followed by seasoning. Water is added then heat is reduced to a simmer for approximately 2 hours.

Cabbage Soup Diets

Participants are directed to drink 8 or more glasses of water per day, no sweetened beverages are allowed. The amount of cabbage soup (CS) to be eaten is unlimited, for breakfast lunch and dinner and the soup is expected to be eaten at least once a day.

  1. CS and as much fresh fruit as desired, except bananas
  2. CS and vegetables, raw or cooked, avoiding beans, peas and corn. For dinner eat 1 jacket (baked) potato with a little butter, and soup
  3. Unlimited CS again with fresh fruit and vegetables, excluding potatoes and bananas
  4. CS plus up to eight bananas and as much skimmed milk as desired
  5. CS plus up to 300 g of beef and six tomatoes, no other vegetables or fruits
  6. CS plus as much beef and vegetables (excluding potatoes) as desired
  7. CS plus brown rice, vegetables (excluding potatoes) and unsweetened fruit juice

You may find slight variants of this diet online, in some cases chicken is substituted for the beef on days 5 & 6. Meal wise there is very little to work with and this is a diet of great discipline, but with unlimited soup to eat being hungry is not a valid excuse!

According to internet folklore there may be many names that the CS Diet moonlights under, some include; the TWA Stewardess Diet, Model’s Diet, the Dolly Parton Diet, Military Cabbage Soup Diet, Mayo Clinic Diet, Sacred Heart Hospital Diet, Miami Heart Institute Diet, Spokane Diet, Fat Burning Diet, T. J.s Miracle Soup Diet and the Skinny. No one has laid claim to or confirmed any endorsement however.
