Cupcake #8: Cabbage soup diet? No thanks.

I heard about the cabbage soup diet a number of years ago and frankly I was intrigued.  I mean, here they are telling me I can lose 10 lbs in a week…just by eating soup.

Full disclosure, I’m a soup guy. I can generally replicate any soup in my kitchen, just by tasting it once.  I haven’t met a soup I didn’t at least like.  Of course, most of the soups I really love are cream based and just chock full of fat and calories.  But everything’s a tradeoff right? It’s still ok to have some of those things as long as you balance them with other good things and exercise.  But I digress…

Back to the soup.  Now, the idea is that the cabbage soup is a low calorie, nutrient rich way of making you feel full.  Um, ok.  It’s also a cruciferous vegetable.  Now I don’t want to get too graphic here with the effects of eating too much cabbage, so you might want to watch this quick video:

Suffice it to say – gassy and bloated is no way to live for a week.

Regardless, I did make and try the soup.  It’s really not bad.  But you have to commit to eating it for a week.  For me this flies in the face of our motto here at WLC.  Be mindful. Be healthy. Love your life.

It’s got 1 and 2 covered.  But it sure as hell has nothing to do with “loving your life”.  So, I ultimately ended up a passing on it.  However, if you are adventurous and want to give it a try, godspeed and good luck.  In fact, here’s a link that gives you a quick rundown.

If you do try it, drop us a line and let us know how it goes.  I may actually change my mind and power through (it in spite of our motto), if we get enough positive feedback!

Be mindful. Be healthy. Love your life.
