The Cabbage Soup Diet

Dr. Dan DeReuter does not endorse this diet-this is here for informational purposes only. Do this diet at your own risk.

The cabbage soup can be eaten any time you get hungry, and you can have it as often as you want.


1. 6 Large Green Onions
2. 2 Green Peppers
3. 1-2 Cans Diced Tomatoes
4. 1 Bunch Celery
5. 1 Package Lipton Onion Soup Mix
6. 1-2 Cubes of Bullion (if desired)
7. 1 head cabbage

Cut vegetables into small pieces and cover with water, you can use V-8 juice also. Boil fast for 10 minutes. Reduce to simmer and continue cooking until vegetables are tender. Season to taste with salt, pepper,parsley, or whatever spice you want to add.

Diet Plan:

Day One:

Fruit: Eat all of the fruit you want, but you can’t have Bananas!! Eat only your soup and the fruit for the first day. You can drink, unsweetened teas, cranberry juice and water.

Day Two:

Vegetables: Eat all the fresh, raw or cooked vegetables you want. Try to eat leafy green vegetables, and avoid dry beans, peas, and corn. Eat as much as you want, all the veggies you can handle and all the cabbage soup you want. At dinner you can have a baked potato with butter. You can’t have any fruit on this day, so just stick to the vegetables.

Day Three:

Mix Days One and Two: Eat all the soup, fruits and vegetables you want, but you can’t have a baked potato.

Day Four:

Bananas and Skim Milk: Eat as many as eight bananas and drink as many glasses of skim milk as you would like on this day, along with your soup. This day is supposed to lessen your desire for sweets.

Day Five:

Beef And Tomatoes: Ten to twenty ounces of beef and up to six fresh tomatoes. Drink at least 6 to 8 glasses of water this day to wash the uric acid from your body. Eat your soup at least once this day. You may eat broiled or baked chicken instead of beef (but absolutely no skin-on chicken). If you prefer, you can substitute broiled fish for the beef one one of the beef days (but not both).

Day Six:

Beef and Vegetables: Eat to your heart’s content of beef and vegetables this day. You can even have 2 or 3 steaks if you like, with leafy green vegetables and no baked potato. Eat your soup at least once.

Day Seven:

Brown rice, unsweetened fruit juices and vegetables: Eat as much as you can of this. Be sure to eat your soup at least once this day.
