I LOVE the Cabbage Soup Diet and follow it at least twice a year. It was recommended to me by my former neighbor, Dr. Allan Spreen, a U.S. Olympic diving coach and author of the book, Nutritionally Incorrect (Woodland Publishing), from which this is adapted. Dr. Spreen says this diet is safe and can be repeated as often as you like, as long as you take two weeks off in between. He says you can expect to lose anywhere from 10 to 17 pounds.
It’s also a great way to get back to your normal weight if you’ve lost a few pounds or to get ready for a special event or vacation. The Cabbage Soup Diet is also a great way to ease into a long-term diet or to introduce a new and healthier way of eating. It works a lot like a fast, so if you’ve been thinking about fasting but don’t think you can do it, this is a great middle ground. Best of all, this diet is perfect for people who want to lose weight without putting in much effort.

Day one, for example, you eat nothing but cabbage soup and all the fruit you want (except bananas). Day two, it’s veggies, soup and a baked potato at dinner. Day three, it’s all the fruit, soup, and vegetables you can eat. You get the idea. But in spite of the high vegetable content (the soup itself is chock-full of veggies like onions, peppers, mushrooms, carrots, tomatoes, celery and, of course, cabbage), the cabbage soup diet supports negative approaches to eating, Natker says.
