Create a Successful Foundation For Your Keto Journey
That trip, while flying back I came across a health magazine which talked about benefits of cabbage soup diet in detail.
Already impressed with the idea, I came home and made a couple of batches of cabbage soup that winter. No, not for dieting but just because I love the flavor of this soup and being health-clean-diet lover..
Plus it is so easy and fast to prepare.. I don't mind cooking it whenever! I think everyone should have a few recipes in their repertoire for healthy body detox. Like, cnce in a while, we love giving our body a break from all sorts of harsh chemicals and complex carbs, by following a few weeks of clean diet plan. On all such occasions, cabbage soup is always on my menu. This cabbage soup recipe yields 8 cups of soup which is good for 4 of 2 cup servings. Our diet plan is mostly: On diet plan, we avoid carbs or starch fruits like banana, sweets, cakes, dairy and mostly eat soup, salad , fresh fruits and veggie juices.
I believe in motto that diet-plan should not be hard to follow.. If a diet regime is hard to follow or need charts Wherever possible use fresh and organic ingredients. I'm not a dietitian. I always recommend making diet-plans based on your body needs and consult a doctor for best results. This cabbage soup has all clean, organic, and simple ingredients. I mostly use fresh diced tomatoes and little bit of organic tomato paste to compensate for the flavor.
If you can't find fresh ripe red tomatoes it is okay to use canned. Try to buy organic, no-sodium and no-fat crushed tomatoes. Please note that color of soup varies based on the tomatoes.
Like canned tomato will yield a more deep-red color than fresh tomatoes. This batch of cabbage soup has more color of veggies and cabbage than tomatoes since I used fresh diced tomato.
I like to keep cabbage soup vegetarian so we can eat it even when we are not eating meat. However, you can add some homemade chicken stock to make it more nutritious.
I'm not sure if you planning a cabbage diet or not If you have a cabbage hidden in some corner of refrigerator shelf? Dig it out and serve a delicious low-cal soup for dinner under 25 minutes! I recently compiled collection of my 37 vegetarian soup recipes. Check it out and enjoy! CDH Amazon Shop affiliate links. The recipe above yields cups of filling cabbage soup. When I'm making this soup for week's soup diet plan.. I let soup cool down then pack in cups of individual servings.
Since soups stays good in refrigerator for 4 days. I leave first 4 serving in refrigerator and freeze the rest. All contents and images are copyright protected.

You can have 1 to 2 bowls of apples or watermelons. You can also have kiwi as it is very nutritious and also keeps you full for long. Kiwi smoothie is rather popular among people who want to lose weight. Have about 2 glasses of water. You can have oranges, kiwi, pear, guava, melons or any other fruit of your choice for dinner.
Avoid more of melons in the night as they take more time to get digested. Have up to 2 glasses of water along with the fruits. Besides the three main meals, incorporate fruits and only fruits for you morning and evening snacks.
Whenever you get hunger pangs, have a fruit and 1 to 2 glasses of water. While your first day is all fruits day, the second day is solely dedicated to vegetables. This day will subject your body to a complete detoxification process.
Your body by now will already feel light and more agile due to an all fruit diet on Day 1. Vegetables are rich in water content, minerals and most importantly fibers that are essential to clean your gut. Again, there is no restriction on the amount of vegetables that you can intake. It is as per your satiety. All you have to ensure is that you do not have anything else other than vegetables. Cucumber, cabbage, broccoli, onions, tomatoes, spinach, cauliflower etc.
Potatoes too are included, but only once a day. You can have all the watery vegetables. Vegetables not to have: Try to avoid peas and corn or any other starchy vegetable. Vegetables will be a part of your throughout the GM Diet from Day 2 onwards. Hence, make sure that you have a variety of vegetables in good quantities to get maximum benefits. These are the vegetables that you can choose from for your GM diet.
The rule is to have as many vegetables as you can both in terms of quantity and variety. If you are fond of salads then prepare the salad of your choice. You should have either raw or boiled vegetables. You can sprinkle a spice of your choice like black pepper or oregano to improve the taste. You can also squeeze some amount of lemon to add a bit of palatability. Since your body was off carbs on Day 1, you need to have a source of energy to begin your Day 2.
So have a boiled potato for breakfast. You can add a dab of butter or olive oil to it so that this breakfast can give you enough energy for the rest of the day.
If available, you can also replace regular potato with a sweet potato. You must not have potato after this, throughout the day. Have up to 2 glasses of water in the breakfast. The lunch should be light and include vegetables that are rich in water.
Have more of salads and raw vegetables. Ingredients like cabbage, cucumber and lettuce have sufficient water and fiber content to keep you full for long.
Have up to 2 glasses of water along with the meal. For your dinner, rely more on green vegetables like spinach, broccoli, lettuce, cabbage etc. Simply boil these vegetables and have them with a little bit of lemon or pepper on them. You can have fresh lettuce or cabbage. Cherry tomatoes will serve as a good mid day snack as their taste tends to subdue the craving as well.
Whenever you feel hungry, have 1 to 2 glasses of water. Keep your body well hydrated throughout the day. The third day focuses on a blend of Day 1 and Day 2.
On the first day, we focused only on fruits to have a non-carb diet. On the second day, we focused on vegetables to take in a fiber rich diet. Now we will mix the two and have an all fruit and vegetable diet for the Day 3 of your 7 Day GM Diet. Yet again, the rule is pretty simple. You have to consume as many vegetables and fruits as you can along with sufficient intake of water.
We have already told you which fruits and vegetables you can consume and which of them are restricted. On the day 3, you will follow the same instructions.
From the list of vegetables and fruits you can decide what combination you want to have. You just have to ensure that by the end of the day, you have consumed a good variety of fruits and vegetables. It is always better to have a sufficient breakfast so that your body is ready to for the busy day ahead. You many start your day with apples or melons just like Day 1 or boiled potato with a dab of butter just like Day 2.
You can also mix the two and have 1 small apple and 1 boiled potato for breakfast. This will give you enough energy and keep you satiated till lunch. However, please remember that you cannot have any more potato throughout the day. Have up to 2 glasses of water. You can again go for a blend of fruits and vegetables with a little more preference to vegetables. Just like Day 2, have cabbage, lettuce, cucumber, spinach, tomatoes, etc. Add a few slices of one or two fruits to give you a little variety and some sweet taste to beat the craving.
Remember that the vegetables either needs to be raw of parboiled. For flavor you can have an olive oil or vinegar dressing. Salads would be a good option for dinner as they are light, easy to make and really fulfilling.
Alternatively, you can have parboiled vegetables and garnish them black pepper, oregano or chili flakes and some lemon juice. This will give you some flavor as well. You can have some fruits after this as your dessert for the day. We would suggest that have more of fruits for your snacks as the sweet and tangy flavors will help to kill the cravings. Along with fruits you can also have broccoli and cherry tomatoes. Support your mid day snacks with good amount of water to kill the hunger.
Day 4 of the GM Diet plan comes as big surprise for all those who have stuck to the plan until now. The first 3 days of the plan have been no carbs diet. We only had vegetables and fruits.
To help your body in coping with all the carbs that it has lost and to replenish minerals like potassium and sodium that are largely lost due to excessive water intake; Day 4 will solely focus on restoration with Bananas, Milk and Soup. Banana is rich in carbs, potassium and sodium and thus, on Day 4 this fruit will act as your balance restorer. You can have up to 6 to 8 bananas and up to 4 glasses of milk throughout the day.
Once in the day, you can have the luxury of having a soup. Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water throughout the day. You can kick start your day with a highly energizing combination of bananas and milk.
You can have about 2 bananas and 1 glass of milk for the breakfast. This will give you sufficient energy until lunch. You can have bananas and milk separately or you can slice the bananas and pour cold milk over it and have it. Since, banana and milk is all you have to play with, you can make your lunch interesting by choosing different recipes of consuming them.
If you want you can have banana milk shake or smoothie without adding any sugar. Making milkshake or smoothie is almost similar. Simple blend the two ingredients and add water or ice to give the consistency that you desire. This is a refreshing way of having banana and milk. Do not forget to have sufficient water. Having banana and milk throughout the day can be a little depressing.
So for dinner, give yourself the luxury of having a soup. The most beneficial soups to go for would be tomato soup and cabbage soup. They are highly nutritious, keep you full and have a natural flavor to them. Soup is also preferable during night as it is light as compared to milk and banana combo.
Well there is not much to play with here. For your mid day snack too you will have just bananas and milk. If you had smoothie for lunch, then you can have milk shake for mid day snack and vice-versa. Have sufficient water to keep your stomach full and body hydrated. Finally, it is time to bring protein back into the frame. Until Day 4, you focused on fibers, sodium, potassium, vitamins, minerals etc. Your muscles will start feeling the lack of protein by now.
This day will also give you a break from the monotony of fruits and vegetables. The global version of GM Diet actually has consumption of meat on Day 5. We have substituted it veg. With day 5, you have the luxury of having sprouts, tomatoes and cottage cheese i.
You can consume around 6 tomatoes and around to grams of paneer throughout the day. If you are not so fond of paneer, then you can have some soya chunks too as well as some low fat curd. You can start your day with a healthy breakfast consisting of sprouts and tomatoes. Sprouts are very nutritious and they keep you fulfilled for long. Similarly, you can also have soya chunks, boiled and sprinkled with salt and pepper.
For some palatability, you can use 1 tsp of olive oil and toss the boiled soya chunks in it to make them a little crispier. Have a good amount of water. For lunch, you can have a protein rich soup consisting of mixed vegetables and add paneer chunks to it. This will give you loads of nutrients and will keep you satiated sufficiently. You can also try your hands on palak paneer without using much of oil and spices. For dinner you can again experiment with a different soup.
You can also have something like Scrambled paneer or paneer bhurji if you want. Simply chop some vegetables like bell pepper, onions, tomatoes, a few green chilies and toss it in a pan with 1 tsp of olive oil. Once it is nicely sauteed, toss in fine paneer chunks to it. This is just like making scrambled eggs. Also have up to 2 glasses of water.
For your snack meals you can have a good amount of sprouts. The easiest and yummiest way of having sprouts is to make a sprout salad. Take the sprouts that you want in a dish, put some finely chopped onions, tomatoes, and 1 spoon of olive oil to it.
Sprinkle salt, and chili flakes and roasted jeera powder on it. Mix it well and your sprout salad is ready. Have a good amount of water with it.
Alternatively, you can also have curd with a pinch of salt. On the Day 6 of the 7-Day GM diet, you need to continue with the protein rich diet. You will continue to have sprouts, cottage cheese, vegetables but excluding tomatoes. While on the Day 5, you relied heavily on tomatoes, on Day 6, you need to avoid it. Continue to have soups, par cooked vegetables and a great amount of water. You will start noticing a great change in your body by now. Soup is encouraged on Day 6 as well as it lets have a good amount of vegetables in a healthy and tasty manner.
Soup also allows intake of a good amount of water. All the vegetables provide you great amounts of fiber that help in keeping your gut at its functional best.
Cottage cheese, soya chunks, etc. You can start your day with a nice bowl of sprouts or boiled kidney beans along with 2 to 3 glasses of water. You can use some spices like black pepper, oregano, chili flakes etc. You can also have a bowl of salad if you wish including vegetables like cabbage, bell pepper, carrots etc. You must not have tomatoes or potatoes.
If you wish you can munch on a fruit except for banana. You make your lunch fulfilling by having a nice bowl of yummy hot cabbage soup. We told you above that GM Diet is also called as the Cabbage soup diet. It is because cabbage soup is a great weight loss tonic and you can have as much cabbage soup as you want. Alternatively, you can have the mixed vegetable cottage cheese soup if you want for lunch.
For dinner you can have scrambled cottage cheese or you can go for slightly tossed soya chunks. Add to this a light salad. Have an apple or an orange to appease you sweet craving. Also consume lots of water along with your meal. Rely on sprouts largely for your snacks as they are tasty and keep you full for long.
Sprouts salad is a good option. You can have more of soup for your snack time as well. A few slices of fruits can also be a part of your mid day snack.
Remember to have a good amount of water. If you have reached till here then you should be really proud of yourself. On this day, you will get a little liberty as you have done everything as suggested in the last 6 days. Continue to have vegetables and fruits. You have to make sure that you do not deviate from the diet plan just because this is the last day.
Even Day 7 is very important. Since for the past 6 days, your body has been completely aloof from starch; on Day 7, you can again introduce healthy starch in your diet like having brown rice preferably and having wheat chapatti.
You can have sprouts as well. Since the idea is to burn calories during the day, we suggest that you have rice in the morning itself. However, if you wish to have it for lunch, then have a breakfast consisting of sprouts or fruits. Have melons or watermelon and papaya as they will keep you full for long. You can have a basic lunch with a bowl of boiled brown rice and some slightly cooked vegetables like cabbage or bell pepper or broccoli. Even today, keep potatoes off the menu.
To make this boring lunch a little interesting, you can cook the rice and vegetables together to make a pulav. Since, you already had rice for lunch, try having chapatti for dinner.
