Mixing the Soup with potatoes

by Hannah
(Midland)

I LOVE cabbage soup with potato in it. So on day 2 I added my one potato in to 3 bowels of soup. This was I was able to consume more of the soup. (I am on day 5)On day 5-6 I want to add my Meat in with my soup, and thus will be able to consume more. Now my friend who told me about the diet is saying this is cheating... Is it? I am on day 5 and have dropped 12lbs already...

Hello Hannah,

congratulations to your 12 pounds so far:)
There are a lot of creative ways to "cheat" yourself through the cabbage soup diet week and still be successful. Your cheats I would call "allowed cheats" as it makes no difference if you eat soup and then the potato or if you put the allowed potato in your soup. The same is true for adding meat/prawns to your soup on meat days.

All the best,
Gabriela

sweet potatoes

by Lee

Can you eat sweet potatoes?

Hi Lee,
you may have a big sweet potato or three small sweet potatoes only on day two of the cabbage soup diet. Eat them for dinner instead your common potatoes.

You can't have sweet potatoes as general vegetable option on the cabbage soup diet because they are rich in complex carbohydrates.

But eat them after the cabbage soup diet because they are very healthy:
high in dietary fiber, vitamin B6 and beta carotene vitamin C.

According the mentioned criteria sweet potatoes are even healthier than the common potato.

All the best,

Gabriela

Baked Potato

Hi there,
Is it possible to substitute a sweet potato for the baked potato on day 2?



Yes, although the sweet potato is only distantly related to the potato, you may substitute the baked potato for a sweet potato on day two - for dinner.
Best regards,
Gabriela

Delicious baked potato
by: Angel

Hello everyone,
I made a baked potato, then cut it open and took all the potato out and left the shell. Then I sort of sauteed it in a little butter, sprinkled less than 1/4 tsp of salt on it and one skake of parmesan cheese. The end result? DELICIOUS!

Funny thing is, I never made this before in my life. I guess the feeling of being deprived makes you come up with creative ways with what you can eat!



Hi Angel,
thank you for this delicious baked potato recipe.
It is true that the feeling of being deprived makes one come up with many creative recipe variations. The same is true for the cabbage soup itself.

With the fact that a lot of vegetables are allowed for the cabbage soup and on the vegetable days, the number of recipe options is near endless...

You will find on this website a vast array of recipe inspirations, the most are created and tested by our valued reader. They have been there - tested them - and are sitting in the "same boat" as you.
Such recipes are a gold mine, thanks again Angel!

All the best,
Gabriela

Can you have sweet potatoe on the veggie days?

No! The only allowed potatoe is on second day - in the evening as baked potato with butter.

Baked Potato for lunch?

by kelly
(orlando)

Can I eat the baked potato earlier in the day or do I have to eat it at dinner time?
Also, instead of eating butter, can I blend a piece of avocado and top my potato with it?


Hi Kelly,
dinner time is best, because you will urgently need those carbohydrates then. For lunch it might be too early and you are maybe risking hunger cravings in the evening.

Avocados are usually not allowed with the cabbage soup diet. But instead of some butter with the potatoes this might work too.

But please don't exaggeerate;-)

All the best,
Gabriela

steamed or cooked potatoes

by Kristen
(USA)

On day 5 it says to eat the meat with 6 fresh tomatoes...Do they have to be raw? or can i just add them to the soup because I cant stand raw tomatoes!!

Hi Kristen,
The tomatoes for day 5 of the cabbage soup diet don't have to be raw. You may have them steamed or cooked too e.g. in your soup.

All the best,
Gabriela
