The Cabbage Diet

The cabbage diet involves eating as much cabbage and drinking as much water as you want every day for one week – and very few other things.

I would suggest that instead of using cabbage as the meal that you substitute it for snacks and perhaps one meal each day. I lost 20 pounds in one month in this way. And it was not water weight. I was also working out at least 3 days per week.

Cabbage is wonderfully high in nutrients, and could be considered the queen of vegetables. It's high in calcium and vitamin C in a very digestible form, as well as photo-nutrients that help prevent dementia and cancer. While the classic Cabbage Soup diet isn't the best thing to eat three times a day, Cabbage is a wonderful staple in any diet - especially if you are trying to lose weight, as it is so low in calories, and just packed with good food value.
