Everyone has by now heard of the cabbage soup diet, this is the detox cabbage soup diet. It generally thought of as a ‘fad’ diet though it has been sticking around for some time now. The cabbage soup diet is used to shed unwanted weight over a short period of time. On that note it is a short term diet normally done over a week to fourteen days. What I want to go over is a shorter quick start detox diet that cleanses your liver and kick starts the mentality needed to lose extra pounds of weight before Christmas.
The original cabbage soup diet is high in fiber and low in fats, this creates and excellent opportunity to lose all that water weight and bloated ness, I don’t know about you but for me that is half the battle. Genuinely if I feel less fat my day goes on, if I feel fat and disgusting I won’t even want to leave my house.
The additional benefit is the liver cleanse. For our livers to operate correctly and look after us it need to perform at its best. Which means we need to look after it. Just some of the symptoms a non-optimal liver shows are:
- Bloating and gas
- Acid reflux and heartburn
- Skin and/or eyes that are yellowish (symptom of jaundice)
- Inability to lose weight
- High blood pressure
- Moodiness, anxiousness, or depression
- Dark urine
- Chronic fatigue
- Excessive sweating
- Bruise easily
This 3 day soup detox cabbage soup diet will remove the toxic foods from your life and feed it with low potassium cabbage soup for a few days, lowering your cholesterol naturally and providing loving support to your heart.
Details and 3 Day Plan
So how does the cabbage soup diet actually work? Well the diet, as with many soup diets is strict on calories. Usually around 900-1200 which depending on your size is around 50% of your daily recommended dose. This is one of the main reasons for not dieting on the cabbage soup diet for a long period. What you want to use this for is a kick star to get you ready to join a serious weight loss / life balance.
If you are like me, you WILL need this boost to get you going. I lost 6 pounds in my three days and felt great. I have now continued my diet steadily following a nontoxic calorie limited exercise plan.
The 3 Day Detox is as Follows:
Eat ONLY cabbage soup and drink plenty of water. You can have some fruit but no bananas.
Again you guessed it cabbage soup all day though you are now free to introduce vegetables, especially some cracking root vegetables. NO corn beans or fruit today. Keep up with your daily water too.
This is your final day, believe me this will be hard to get too. One more day of cabbage soup, you can have it for breakfast, lunch, dinner and supper J. NO extras today I am afraid just water.
It goes without saying, or does it. Please no alcohol, caffeine (tea or coffee) no drinks with high sugar content, nothing. This is a detox, be strict and you will be rewarded.
