brown rice substitution


(copenhagen, denmark)

What can i substitute for the brown rice? Perhaps another type of rice, or can i omit the rice altogether?

Hi!
Brown rice is healthier than white rice, that's why it is preferred for the rice diet day. Rice itself also flushes water of your body, but this can be achieved through white rice too.

We recommend using white rice instead of brown rice.

All the best,

Gabriela

Quinoa instead of rice?

by dee
(philadelphia, pa)

Can quinoa (either full grain or flakes) be used instead of rice for day 7?

Yes - you may use especially full grains for your day 7 - what a great idea!


Quinoa - a pseudocereral originated in the Andean region of South America and has there been an important food for 6,000 years.

It is also nowadays highly appreciated for its nutritional value - with an very high protein content (12%–18%) and a low Glycemic Index.

That's why it is a healthy choice for people preferring food with a low GI - perfect for the cabbage soup diet! But also vegetarians and vegans appreciate this "species of goosefoot".

Quinoa is an unusually complete protein source with a balanced set of essential amino acids for humans.

Unlike rice or wheat (which are low in lysine), it is a good source of phosphorus and dietary fiber and is high in iron and magnesium. Quinoa is easy to digest and it is gluten free.

That makes quinoa also a great choice after the cabbage soup diet week!

Quinoa

by Catherine
(Red Deer, AB. Canada)

My girlfriend is a protein "type", and needed a little more protein than was called for in this diet. She added a 1/2 cup of high protein quinoa to the soup, and actually lost 3 more lbs. than I did.
She lost 12lbs, while I lost 9.
She also said the soup was thicker and "meatier" than mine.
Would this addition be ok in my next batch then?

Thanks,
Catherine


Dear Catherine,
first of all congratulations to you 2!
Both weight loss results are impressive.
Adding protein shakes, low fat milk or other protein suppliers in your diet plan is highly recommended for best "fat burning effects".

It seems that adding 1/2 cup of high protein quinoa in the cabbage soup works too.
Catherine, just try it the next time and let me know how it worked.

All the best,
Gabriela

whole grain pasta instead of rice?

by Millie
(Greece)

Hi Gabriela,
I would much rather have pasta than the rice for day 7. Is this possible? Thanks very much for your time. I love this diet!!


Hi Millie,
the rice helps you to remove excessiv water from your body. This is a property whole grain pasta doesn't possess. Please stick to whole grain rice or white rice on the last day of your cabbage soup diet for best results.

All the best,
Gabriela

Can you do any additional vegetables for Day 7? Like slice up cucumber, carrot, radish and stuff it into brown rice rolled up in nori (seaweed)?

Dear Joanie,
