The Cabbage Soup Diet

Cabbage soup is the magical soup that's supposed to help with weight loss and there is even a diet named after it called the Cabbage Soup Diet. It is a very strict diet where you can lose up to 10 pounds. For an entire week, you eat large amounts of this soup but during this time (7 days) you can also eat other foods like fruits and vegetables, beef, chicken, and brown rice according to Mayo Clinic's website.

I give props to anyone that can follow a strict diet like that. I could never just eat cabbage soup for that long of a time period. In fact, I'd get pretty bored with it. That is the brilliant part about myWW. It's zero points and can be served for lunch or dinner. Plus, you're getting in vegetables for the day.

How to make Cabbage Soup

  1. Spray pot with nonstick cooking spray.Saute onions carrots and garlic for 5 minutes.
  2. Add broth, Tomato paste, cabbage, green beans, basil, oregano, and Salt & Pepper to taste.
  3. Simmer for about 5-10 minutes until all vegetables are tender then add the zucchini and simmer for another 5 or so minutes.
  4. I have tried different variations. Leaving out green beans. Adding chopped green onions in addition to the yellow onion.
  5. All very good. You can customize it to your liking.

What can I serve cabbage soup?

  • You don't just want to eat this zero point soup all day if you're on a diet, you need some protein and carbs to help keep you full.
  • Carbs: Try making my Air Fryer Garlic Bread recipe or Easy Cheesy Garlic Bread sticks as a side.
  • Protein:Make some air fryer chicken breast or air fryer salmon. Check out How to Grill Top Sirloin Steak which would make this even fancier.

  4. Jenna says

    I'm no longer on WW too. I got tired of them changing the points system all the time and just stick to calorie counting. Glad you like it and stick to whatever diet works for you! 🙂

  5. Alissa Schroeder says

    I’m no longer a Weight Watcher as I’ve embraced Intermittent Fasting (Delay, Don’t Deny) with fantastic results. But I love this recipe and make it many times during thanksgiving inter months. Sometimes I add ground turkey and sauté onions/garlic in it (it’s great). But of course that is no longer zero points.
