I am not sure what are acceptable drinks for the cabbage soup diet

by Amanda
(Ontario, Canada)

I noticed the only drinks allowed are tea, water and one cup of milk on most days. I was wondering if diet soda like ginger ale, no caffeine, would be allowed. What about V8 juice on vegetable days?
Thank you very much for your help.


Hi Amanda,
herbal teas and water are the best drinks for the cabbage soup diet. On top you may have cranberry juice (100%) - it is too sour to drink it in high quantities.

V8 juice is great on "vegetable days".

For a successful weight loss we don't recommend diet soda or other drinks with artificial sweeteners. They may cause high hunger pains...

All the best,
Gabriela

can you drink water while on the diet?

I've heard you can't drink to much water while on the diet is this true?

Also my soup has mushrooms in it is that ok?


Hi,
water is welcome - drink water as much as you like.

Some mushrooms with the cabbage soup are ok.
All the best,
Gabriela

cranberry juice


(bucketboy)

is it okay to drink light cranberry cocktail while on this diet? It has 40 calories per 250ml glass.I'm not a huge fan of black teas, coffees or green tea. Thanks.

Hi Bucketboy,
yes, a limited amount of cranberry juice (100 % pure, without sugar) is ok while on cabbage soup diet. It is usually too sour to drink it in high qunatities.

All the best,
Gabriela

Hi!
I want to start with the diet ...can I drink grapefruit juice daily for 7 days also as i want to drink with my weight loss programm ...as it also reduces weight (only if i dont eat any wheat stuff...and also my prolem is i am not at all able to do exercise for some reasons so will i still reduce weight with it as i subsitute excerise with drinking hot water with lemon in it for at least 4 to 5 times daily...and i cheat a bit almost daily by eating something but anything only just 2 to 3 spoons....will i still reduce weight....i am really so tensed as i have to go somewhere on 29 th of this june and reduce 6kgs...
pl give me proper tips and help me how can i be motivated in this diet and in myself....

Hi Dons,
when doing the cabbage soup diet grapefruit juice is allowed on the so called "fruit days 2 + 3" But it has to be 100 % grapefruit juice.
On other days you better use cranberry juice.

Of course doing exercises would improve your weight loss success but without them you will still loose considerable weight as far as you stick closely to the 7 day cabbage soup diet plan.
No cheating except for the allowed cabbage soup diet cheats.

Drinking a lot is a good idea - also hot water with lemon slices - it helps your body flush out toxins.

All the best,
Gabriela

Drinks with honey

by Lauren
(Columbia, SC)

Hi,
Today is my first day on the diet and I'm wondering if I can sweeten the tea with honey or sugar sub like equal?


Dear Lauren,
please don't do this on the cabbage soup diet week. Honey or sugar sub will make you only hungry - and that will make it harder stick to the diet week.

All the best,
Gabriela
