The Cabbage Soup Diet has been around for ages.
This is a 7 day diet based around various combinations of food in restricted amounts and all the “Cabbage Soup” you want. It is also encouraged that you drink an abundance of water. It is considered a starvation diet.
Most of the weight you lose on this diet is more than likely water. You will rapidly regain any of the weight that you lost.
Is It Safe and Effective

History of the Cabbage Soup Diet
No one really knows how or when fad diets begin. It’s a common belief that the Cabbage Soup diet originated at the Sacred Heart Hospital in Brussels, Belgium. It was originally for morbidly obese persons to lose weight before surgery.
Just for the fun of it, I’ve included the details of the Cabbage Soup Diet. It also includes the recipe for the soup – that you might enjoy as a supplement to your normal diet.
