Does anyone remember the Cabbage Soup diet?

What's the deal? Do you just fill up on the soup or is there some secret ingredient in cabbage that helps you loose weight? Any good recipes for the soup?

  • Diets and diet aids are temporary fixes. Unless you learn how to eat healthy for life, you will not be able to maintain a healthy weight and will stay on the gain/lose roller coaster - frustrating for you and hard on your body. Drink at least 8 8oz glasses of water every day. Eat 6-7 servings of whole grains (brown rice, whole grain bread, etc.) every day. Eat 7-8 servings of fruits and vegetables every day, in at least 3 different colors. Eat at least 2 servings of legumes every day. You will lose weight. You will maintain a healthy weight. You will get sick less often. You will be setting a wonderful example for your children. You can get free meal plans and recipes from Dr. McDougall, or find his books at your local library:
    Eat an apple or a big pile of vegetables before meals. Feel free to contact me if you have questions or would like meal suggestions.

  • Does anybody remember the eat-healthy-foods-in-moderate-portions-and-exercise-daily diet? It worked really well for me.

  • Thanks to one of you for being polite and to the other, do you feel better after having been obnoxious?
