Dried fruit and vegetables?

by Elise
(Los Angeles)

Can a person have dried fruit or vegetables on the days you are suppose to eat fruits and veggies?

Dear Elise,
no dried fruits are allowed on the cabbage soup diet. Dried vegetables like mushrooms without any additives are ok.

All the best,

Can you eat dried fruit on the cabbage soup diet?

I'm going on to Day 4 and I hate bananas and milk :( I saw somewhere that you could eat bran flakes (for carbohydrates) with skim milk, yes? I also found some dried bananas that I may like. I checked the ingredients and they are ONLY banana. Will this work as a substitute?

Thanks!


Hi,
no dried fruits are allowed on the cabbage soup diet. For banana substitute you may try apricots, kiwis or pawpaws.

All the best,
Gabriela

Raisins/Olives on the cabbage soup diet

Okay so i ate two little boxes of raisins on the 1st day.
and there were olives in my salad on the 2nd day.
Does this mean i messed up my cabbage diet?
Do i have to restart or am i okay to continue on?


Hi,
This depends. If you don't have any severe hunger cravings and are able to stick from now on strictly to the cabbage soup diet plan you will still lose considerable weight.

But if you experience hard cravings and you expect to cheat yourself through the week it will be better to wait some weeks and try it then again.

All the best,
Gabriela

Dried Fruits?

by Mary
(Studio City, CA)

Today is my first day on the diet and I ate 4 bowls of soup, a ton of strawberries, cherries, and blueberries. I went to the gym for about an hour at nighttime. I came home and ate a decent amount of dried fruit. Then I came to my senses that dried fruit contains a lot of sugar. I am worried this ruined my start. What should I do?

Hi Mary,
if the dried fruit amount was really decent, then forget about it and stick from now on closely to the 7 day diet plan. Continue going to the gym and you will still see an impressive weight loss after 7 days.

All the best,
Gabriela

dates on fruit days

by Ruhi
(UAE)

Hi, I'll be starting this next week. Just two questions, instead of a protein shake, can I have a boiled egg and tea for breakfast? And, on fruit days, can I have dates as well? Thanks.. and wish me luck :)

Dear Ruhi,

fresh dates contain up to 70% of water and are allowed on the fruit days. Don't use dried dates!

We don't endorse eggs on the cabbage soup diet instead of the protein shake. If you don't like the protein shake - use instead the alternate cabbage soup diet plan with added dairy products like milk and yoghurt.

All the best,
Gabriela

dry nuts on cabbage soup diet

Hi there..I'm on day 2 of the diet.. could i have some dried nuts (no salt at all) for snacks?

Hello,
nuts are too fat for the cabbage soup diet week. As allowed cheat you may have 1 tablespoon of unpeeled, unsalted sunflower seeds per day. Chew the seeds very slowly or sprinkle them over your salad.

All the best,
Gabriela
