Baked Potato only in the evening

by Willie
(Morristown, NJ)

(Day 2) Am I allowed to eat my Baked Potato in the morning (roasted Veggies and potatoes in an Egg White would be great) or at lunch (I enjoyed 2 roasted Vegetable & Potato Shish kabob,w/ little chili&pepper seasoning-it was great!)instead of the evening? I've lost 3 lbs already!

Hi Willie,
the better choice is to eat your potato only in the evening because it helps you to stop hunger cravings. Now however you can have only veggies + cabbage soup in the evening and this might be a bit harder. But please stick to this program. 3 pounds in 2 days is great!

Please let us know how much pounds you have lost in the end of the 7 day cabbage soup diet.

All the best,
Gabriela

Baked Potato vs Mashed
by: messalina

Hi Willie, with my potato I slice it up and pour some of the soup broth over it, add a litle garlic and Onion powder and Italian and let it boild bown. I then add a pat of butter and make mashed potatoes. I hope I don't boil out much of the nutrients but I don't drain the cooked taters so I don't think a lot is wasted. I only add enough both to be absord by the time they cook.

I use broth also for cooking my veggeis like the green. I also thick cut a sweet potato into the greens for sweetness.

I'm thinking the sweet potato can be eaten on each veggie day as there is no stipulation not to.

But there is no problem in not eating it with the greens.

Gabriel, I saw the new CSD 2.0 and It eliminates green onions, which is fine with me. This new soup is a lot easier to tolerate. It does however have only 3 carrots. Am I disrupting the diet too much to add more than 3... maybe 5, even though slim ones all?

And oh oh... I used Knorr Buillon Cubes and it wasn't until afterwards I read that you shouldn't use the cubes with MSG as they help to retain water. In a 12 qt. pot I used 3 cubes. :(

On Day 3... btw... do you all agree that Day One is the hardest? Pick your fruit so that you combine citrus, Kiwi, Berries with the sugar loaded ones. Cantaloupe I think is better than Honeydew. What do you say Gabbie...

Thanks

boiled potato instead baked on the vegetable diet day 2

by Messalina
(USA)

Fruit! Glorious fruit!

Fruit! Glorious fruit!

Hi, I am just wondering if I can make that potato boiled instead of baked. Oh, the day 5 tomatoes; are they to be eaten raw or cooked in some way? Are we just to avoid the salt of canned tomatoes?

Dear Messalina,
these are good questions!
Of course you may boil your potatoes for dinner on day 2 of the csd.

The tomatoes can be eaten raw or cooked wahtever you like. In case you use canned tomatoes please whatch the salt or use low sodium tomatoes.

All the best,
Gabriela

Old vs New CSD
by: Anonymous

Thank you! I adhere pretty much to the diet when I do it. Every post on the diet plan says BAKED POTATO in bold letters as if that is the only way to prepare it. I am prediabetic and shouldn't have potato anyway, but will have at least half.

For the beef, I was going to use ground beef; however, nowhere is there any mention of using that either.

If the guidelines of the diet can be relaxed then there should be a publication somewhere stating such.

I see that there is a "New Cabbage Soup Diet" that has no mushrooms, or V-8. WHY??? It also has a tons of salt in 3-4 bouillon cubes. YIKES!

I used only one cube and no other salt except what was in the tomatoes and the V-8. My soup is a combo of old and new.

I was going to use canned tomatoes on day 5, but thought of the salt and got fresh.

This diet really will help you lost 10 to 15 lbs in 7 days, but you must adhere to it; and use as little salt as possible. Drink lots of water.

**Note: Fruit, especially darker, grapes have a lot of sugar. If you include grapes on your fruit days, you should limit them to 6 or 7.

Also, do any of you use sugar substitutes such as stevia or syrupy types like maltitol? Does the body recognize substitute sweeteners even if they aren't true sugar. I put about a tablespoon of maltitol in my soup.

Thanks, have a good one!

Sweet Potato on the vegetable diet day 2

by Jennifer
(Colorado)

Can you substitute a sweet potato for the regular potato?

Hi Jennifer,
the answer is yes you can - although the sweet potato is only distantly related to the
"common potato".

All the best,

8th Day on Diet
by: Millie (GREECE)

Hi Everyone! Well, I know there are only 7 days to this diet but I am a day after the diet and have decided to do it again. I lost 2 kilos and followed the diet honestly. This is actually a perfect amount for me to lost considering I only need to lose 5 kilos (10 lbs) all together. I am mostly hanging in there for my husband who lost around 10 lbs last week and is totally motivated to continue. I am thankful for this diet because it has allowed both of us to take a look at everything we put into our mouths from now on. Thanks very much for this great site and all your help. Good luck to everyone out there working to get healthy.

What can I substitute for the baked potato?

I don't have a baked potato.

You don't have to eat a potato. It is there to calm your potential crave for carbohydrates. Eat other vegetables and cabbage soup instead and you are fine.

And are almonds allowed?
No, almonds aren not allowed they are too high in fat!

All the best.
