-Although this is hilarious and relatable, it doesn’t have to be true! Soup is the answer to loosing weight and it is delicious.

There has been a recent diet fad – The Cabbage Soup Diet. Dr. Axe Food is Medicine gives great information on what the Cabbage Soup Diet is and whether it is for weight loss or toxin removal.

So here’s the diet via Dr. Josh Axe

What Is the Cabbage Soup Diet?

The low-fat, high-fiber diet consists of a fat-free cabbage soup that is eaten one to three times a day. On each day, there are other assigned foods that are allowed.

Day 1:

Eat only cabbage soup and fruit all day, except bananas, which are put on the chopping block on this diet.

Day 2:

Eat only the soup and vegetables all day, especially root vegetables. Avoid corn, beans and fruit. As an indulgence, you can end the day with a baked potato and butter.

Day 3:

Eat cabbage soup, fruits and green vegetables all day. Do not eat any starchy veggies, like potatoes.

Day 4:

Eat cabbage soup, bananas and skim milk. This day is supposed to decrease the desire for sweets.

Day 5:

Eat cabbage soup (at least twice) with grass-fed beef (or baked chicken without the skin) and nutritious tomatoes. Drink six to eight glasses of water.

Day 6:

Eat cabbage soup (at least once) with beef and vegetables.

Day 7:

Eat cabbage soup (at least once) with brown rice — not white rice — unsweetened fruit juices and vegetables.

How does the Cabbage Soup Diet Work?

On the cabbage soup diet, you likely eat 1,000 calories a day. This is half of the recommend 2,000 calories a day, so you are going to lose weight. Because the diet consists of low-fat and high-fiber foods, you are going to lose plenty of water weight.

This diet also works as a liver cleanse because it rids the body of toxins that are built-up in the liver.
