On day 4, can you have make a shake or smoothie out of the banana and fat free milk? I read that you can use plain yoghurt with it.

Hi Susie,
yes, this is a great option on day 4 of the cabbage soup diet and many readers are doing it like this.
You can make the smoothie according to your preferences either with low fat milk, yoghurt or even with soy milk.

All the best,

smoothies with banana extracts

Is it okay to use extracts ? On the day with the bananas and milk if you just cut the banana up and freeze them, then add the frozen banana to a glass of milk flavored with the extracts (such as banana , strawberry,almond or vanilla (etc)then just blend til thick with a couple ice cubes . You could freeze the bananas the night befor and have them ready to blend into a smoothie on the banana day.

What are the ingredients of your extracts?

Day 4 - banana smoothie

by Carly
(Georgia)

Can you make a banana smoothie on day four? Maybe with crushed ice and fat free yogurt (instead of milk)? What about vanilla extract?

Hi Carly,

this is an excellent idea for day four the banana diet day. And I'm sure our readers will enjoy this smoothie tip too. The suggested ingredients are fine but please don't use the "artificial" vanilla extract.

All the best,
Gabriela

whey protein in the banana shake

by neet
(usa)

Can i use muscle milk - whey protein in the banana shake. If so, how much and how many times in the day soould i have it. I am a girl (27 yrs) with 28bmi and low metabolism

Dear Neet,
you can use muscle milk - whey protein too.
But you should know that it has a higher fat content than regular whey protein.
I would drink not more than three banana shakes per banana diet day - each made based on 1 1/2 table spoon muscle milk - whey protein per serving.

All the best,
Gabriela

Vanilla Soy or Rice Drink

by Isa
(San Diego, CA, USA)

I am also a vegan. Will vanilla soy or a rice drink work instead of milk?

A Soy Drink without added sugar is a great alternative instead of milk. Rice drinks mostly contain rice and sometimes even sugar and are not suitable for the cabbage soup diet.

All the best,
Gabriela

Slimfast Shake

Tomorrow is day 4 for me... I brought Bananas, Skim Milk, Slimfast Optimum Shake and Plain Non-Fat Yogurt...

On the banana diet day we recommend 3 - 4 banana shakes - in your case based on Slimfast Optimum Shake. You may have on top of this still 1-2 bananas and some plain non fat yoghurt if you want.

It is very important to eat enough cabbage soup on the banana day too.

All the best,
Gabriela

Frozen Yogurt

Hi,
Yesterday was my Banana day and I had a little frozen yogurt. It was low fat but not completely sugar or fat free. Will that hurt my diet?


Dear Sofi,

on the banana diet day you may have low fat yoghurt instead of low fat milk, so this shouldn't be a problem. Regarding the sugar: As far as it hasn't caused any stronger hunger feelings, it won't hurt your diet. Otherwise it will make it harder to stick to the diet. In that case eat more cabbage soup or nibble carrots.

All the best,
Gabriela

non fat plain yogurt on banana diet day

by LA
(Oregon)

Oh oh. Looking closely at what tomorrow brings. Soup- check. Bananas- check. Skim milk- NO WAY! Hate the stuff. Do you think non fat plain yogurt would work instead? Seems like it would be the same calories/nutrients.
Or tomorrow is going to be a very long day.


Hello LA,

no problem, just use non fat plain yogurt on your banana diet day - it still has a high enough protein content but no fat!

All the best,
Gabriela
