Anyone who wants an explanation of the cabbage soup diet can have one, BALONEY. Anything else is just a lot of noise. For the sake of filling time, more information is presented.

The origins of the cabbage soup diet are nebulous. It first appeared in the early 1980s, faxed from person to person like a chain letter. The diet went under many names, often using a part of the name of a well respected institution such as the Russian peasant diet, or the St. Jude's diet. Needless to say, the diet has no relation to any of the institutions, nations, or people used in these names.

The cabbage soup diet calls for drinking nothing but water or unsweetened fruit juice on days when juice is allowed. In general this is the diet.

Day one -- cabbage soup plus as much fruit as you can eat, but no bananas.

Day two -- cabbage soup, vegetables which could be half of a baked potato without butter.

Day three -- add vegetables and fruit to the daily cabbage soup, but no bananas or potato.

Day four -- cabbage soup 8 bananas and skimmed milk.

Day five -- as much as 20 ounces of beef 6 tomatoes along with cabbage soup.

Day six -- cabbage soup plus as much beef and vegetables as can be eaten, but no potatoes.

Day seven -- cabbage soup, brown rice, vegetables, unsweetened fruit juice, but no potatoes.

The cabbage soup diet claims that people can lose 10 pounds in only one week. What the diet doesn't specify is that most of that weight loss would be water. It's impossible to lose 10 pounds of fat in a week. It is however, possible to get sick from a lack of nutrition which is one danger with the cabbage soup diet.

In addition the cabbage soup diet isn't easy. Not because it's too complicated, but rather because seven days of cabbage soup becomes monotonous. Quitting the cabbage soup diet after only a few days was common. Even as more exciting cabbage soup recipes, including some with various spices, made the rounds people still quit early.

In general nothing quite as extreme as the cabbage soup diet is needed to lose weight. Exercise more and cut out calories in order to accomplish a goal.
