Brown Rice Quantity

by Carla

On the 7th day, it doesn't state how much brown rice you're allowed to eat. Does this mean an unlimited amount?


Thank you,
Carla


Hi Carla,
this is a really good question! ...And you see me speachless. The most cabbage soup diet plans I know, don't specify any rice quantities.


On the other hand, brown rice is very stuffing and
it's difficult to overeat - especially in combination with sufficient cabbage soup.

My personal estimation would be, to use not more than 100 g uncooked rice - this is equivalent to 200 g cooked rice. For the recipe on the rice diet page you need e.g. 80 g rice.

I'm sure that there are dieters who ate more than 200 g cooked rice and still had a great weight loss effect...It depends on the individual too.

All the best,
Gabriela

Can i replace brown rice by Black Rice for day 7??

by Suheir
(China)

hello there,

tomorrow is going to be my seventh day, and so far i have lost around 2 and half KG, which is so good,

i have not cheated even once,

but tomorrow i am supposed to eat brown rice and vegetable,

unfortuntly i could find any brown rice in my surrounding, but i found Black rice and i am not sure if they are the same, or i should skip all rice and eat only vegetable with fruit.

pls reply as soon as possible,

thank you

suheir


Dear Suheir,
congratulation to your lost 2,5 kg so far.
Yes, you can have also black rice instead of brown rice. It has a high nutritional value and includes iron. By the way, black rice has a similar amount of fiber to brown rice. It has also a mild and nutty taste. So enjoy your last cabbage soup diet day!

All the best,
Gabriela

Day 7 of the cabbage soup diet, rice or not?

by Hala
(Egypt)

I am a bit confused about day 7, another site says that you should eat fruits, veggies and juices and the rice being optional and that you should skip it if you want more weight loss.
So what's right?


Hi Hala,
there exist different cabbage soup diet plans on the web. We recommend (brown) rice for day seven (the rice diet day) along with vegetables and cabbage soup. Brown rice will stabilize your insuline level and reduce the risk for bing eating after the 7 day cabbage soup diet.

All the best,
Gabriela

Hi,
although brown rice is the better choice, using uncle bens long grain rice won't harm your weight loss success.

No brown rice

by Alexis
(PA)

Hi, can i use white rice instead of brown rice? Is there any effect?

Hi Alexis,
brown rice is of course healthier (more nutrients and fibers) and has a better influence on your insuline lever. White rice might sometimes cause hunger attacks - but if you don't have brown rice then try it with white one.

All the best,
Gabriela

Risotto vs brown rice?

by Laura
(Florida)

I am surprised that you say you can substitute risotto for brown rice. They are different aren't they?

Hi Laura,
yes they are different, and of course brown rice is healthier...
But from our experience - concerning weight loss success - it really doesn't make any difference
if you eat brown rice or risotto rice on the rice diet day - as long as you stick to the other planned food for this day.

All the best,
Gabriela

Brown Rice Day

by kikiblanco

How much brown rice can I have on the 7th day?
What other kind of rice can I have instead?


You can have an unlimited quantity of brown rice on day 7 but usually it's almost impossible to eat more than 500 g (17 ounces) or 2 cups (uncooked) rice which results in a much higher quantity of cooked rice.

Of course you may have instead any other kind of rice but here is the reason why we recommend brown rice:
Brown rice is nothing else than white rice including the bran covering the rice grains. With the bran intact, it is much healthier to
eat brown rice as the fiber is slowing down the absorption of carbohydrates (a too quick absorption causes hunger attacks)
In addition the bran contains nutrients like zinc, magnesium, manganese and the B-complex vitamin group. White rice has only reduced levels of these nutrients, but is often enhanced with some B vitamins and iron.

Another effect of rice in general: it is very low in fat and pours out water of the body. That's why many people use it also for a one day diet with rice.

DAY SEVEN (brown rice)

by Julie
(Denver, CO)

My copy of the cabbage soup diet says that you can eat all you want of brown rice. My co-worker has a copy of the diet and it says you can have one cup of brown rice for the day.

Which is correct?

Thanks!


Dear Julie,

Regarding brown rice there are different opinions.
Most plans that allow unlimited rice have in mind that you can't stuff yourself too much with brown rice. Together with the fiber in rice and the vegetables you will feel full very early. But there are of course exceptions.
That's why our recommendation would be to eat not more than 4 cups of cooked brown rice on day 7 - Herefore you will need approximately 2 cups of uncooked brown rice. Please don't forget eating the cabbage soup too!

All the best,
Gabriela

Brown Rice on day 7

by aSaR
(ATL)

What else can i eat WITH the brown rice?
Also, can i eat something else instead of the brown rice?


You may eat vegetables with the brown rice, steamed or fresh ones. A mushroom risotto is delicious. If you don't like rice at all try it with millet.

BROWN RICE every day?

by carol
(los angeles calif)

I HAVE NOTICED THAT THE OLD CABBAGE SOUP DIET ALLOWS YOU ONE DAY WITH BROWN RICE BUT YET IN THE NEW CABBAGE SOUP DIET THE CABBAGE SOUP RECIPE INCLUDES ONE AND A HALF CUPS OF BROWN RICE TO BE ADDED TO THE FINISHED CABBAGE SOUP. DOES THAT MEAN THAT YOU COULD RICE TO THE SOUP EVERYDAY?

Dear Carol,
there are 7 day cabbage soup diet plans that allow 1 cup of brown rice every day. Our newest plan however allows brown rice only on the last day.

It's up to you which plan you prefer. Whatever you choose make sure to stick to one single plan.

All the best,
Gabriela
