Hi Robin,

please don't exaggerate with meat - up to 600 grams are not too little. If still hungry don't forget the soup and all other veggies!

Lamb on meat day

by Jenny
(Greenbough, AL)

Hi, I was wondering if I could substitute lamb for the beef?

Hi Jenny,
no problem! Go ahead and switch to "lean" lamb. You may also use "no skin-on" chicken, turtle or fish on the day 5 or 6 - the meat diet days.

All the best,
Gabriela

how is the beef cooked?

by darren hughes
(worksop england)

how is the beef cooked?

Make yourself a lean beef steak on a grill or in a broil pan.

Before you start sprinkle steak with a bit of grill seasoning.

Grill: Prepare and preheat grill and grill to desired doneness, at least medium rare (140 degrees F on a meat thermometer).

Pan: Place on broiler pan and broil 4-6" from heat source for 10-15 minutes, turning once with tongs, until steak is cooked to desired doneness.

After steak is cooked let the meat sit for about 5 minutes before serving.

You may now combine your steak with a tomato salad (day 5) or e.g. steamed vegetables (day 6).
It tastes delicious!

All the best,
Gabriela

changing beef to pork or lamb on day 5 or 6

I have to go to a Greek Restaurant on day 5. Beef is not an option on the menu. Can I eat Pork or Lamb?

Hi,
no pork - but a "low fat lamb dish" should be fine.

All the best,
Gabriela

Day 5 and 6 - can I combine meat with poultry or fish?

by Karen
(Canada)

Hello,

I am following what I believe is the classic cabbage soup diet with the addition of Optima slimfast shakes (which I didn't take on day 1 but plan to take from now on). I had a recipe that included adding V8 Juice which I did. My question is for days 5 and 6. I realize that on day 5 I can have other veggies besides tomatoes, but can I combine my meat with chicken or fish? ie. can I have a lean steak in the morning and then baked chicken or fish in the evening?
thanks!


Hi Karen,
this one is easy to answer, yes you can have lean steak for lunch and then baked chicken or fish in the evening.

All the best,
Gabriela

fried meat or fish

by Ashahid
(Pakistan)

On the 5th & 6th day, Can i have fried fish, chicken or beef instead of broiled/baked one?

Hi Ashahid,

when frying you will need lots of oil that makes the meat too fat! The better option would be to use a wok with very few oil (1 tablespoon per day allowed!) to fry the fish, beef or chicken.

All the best,

Gabriela

can you eat hamburger instead of beef....

by Z
(arlington, Texas)

On day 5 and 6 can you have hamburger instead of steak?

Hi Z,

No! The meat for hamburgers is usually not low fat. On top this kind of meat has a too high salt content, as special seasonings and flavor enhancers are added to the hamburger.

The best "meat" you can use for your cabbage soup diet is low fat, "unprocessed" poultry, fish or beef.

All the best,
Gabriela

100% beef burgers
by: Allan Stevens

Hi Gabriela

Firstly, your comments and suggested alternatives are great!!
When you mention the "NO" to beef burgers (days 5-6), what if they are 100% beef burgers or you make your own...is this exceptable?

Only on day two so still early days but have lost 2lb already...Bali, here I come.

Many thanks

Hi Allan,
thanks for your kind words.
If you use 100% lean beef for your beef burgers and watch your sodium then self made beef burgers would be a wonderful idea for your meat days!
2 lbs is a good start!

All the best,
Gabriela

pork chops on meat day

by carol
(los angeles calif)

on day six instead of having two to three beef steaks can you have instead lean sirlon pork chops?

Dear Carol,
you should know that pork usually contains always more fat than beef. So please limit the intake of pork meat.
If you use pork chops you should cut away all visible fat.

All the best,
Gabriela
