Cabbage Soup Diet

This diet lasts for 7 days. You make a big batch of home made cabbage soup and each day you eat as much of it as you want. This is supplemented by certain foods each day. The recipe varies slightly, but basically includes a variety of low-calorie vegetables such as cabbage, onions and tomatoes, flavored with bouillon, onion soup mix and tomato juice. Each day of the seven-day program has specific foods that must be eaten, including potatoes, fruit juice, many vegetables, and on one day, beef.

Pro:

You'll lose weight quickly and can eat as much as you want of the prescribed foods.

Con:

The critics of this diet say that this is mainly a crash diet whose weight loss is mainly from water loss. According to them, cabbage has no fat-burning powers. Some dieters complain of gas, nausea, and light-headedness on this diet.

The diet is too low in complex carbohydrates, protein, vitamins and minerals to continue for an extended period of time. 

Crash diets increase the risk of blood pressure problems, coronary heart disease, and can disturb the natural metabolic set point so that it interferes with the distribution of body fat. The body actually experiences malnutrition. Some people experience tiredness, lack of energy and water retention. You may also feel light-headed and weak, and notice a decrease in ability to concentrate.
