does the cabbage soup diet have to be in the order given

by susan mejia
(orange, ca, usa)

Are the days interchangeable or does one have to follow it to the "T"? For example can you go from day one-fruits to day four-bananas and skim milk to day day 2- just veggies and the baked potatoes? or does it have to be in the order given?

Hi Susan,
the order given has its deeper sense and has to do with the glycemic index of some foods and the insuline level in your body.

The order given makes sure that your body gets a certain amount of carbohydrates on a certain day.
On day 2, the baked potatoe in the evening helps to balance out the insuline level. On day 4 your body urgently needs the carbohydrates of the bananas otherwise you might risk to have a hunger attack and break the diet week.

For most people however it makes no difference when they switch day 5 and 6.

All the best,

Gabriela

Switched days 1 and 2

by Jennifer
(CA)

I accidently began eating just the soup and veggies the first day instead of fruit. Is that ok?

Hi Jennifer,
this should't be a problem concerning the weight loss effect. I think however, that the first day might be harder for you to stick to the cabbage souo diet than for the others starting with fruits - especially if you are a "sweet tooth".

If you however managed the first day with only vegetables - the remaining days for you should be very easy. I know from many contributors to this forum and also from my experience that especially the veggie day seems to be one of the hardest.

All the best,
Gabriela

Switched Day 2 for 3 by Mistake

I accidently started eating a mixture of veg. and fruit on the second day instead of the third day.
Can I just switch these two days or do I have to start over on the diet.


Hi,
you don't have to start over again. Just switch the days, but please be aware that the "vegetable day" is the hardest. So take especially care to stick to this diet: When hunger or the desire for sweets is overwhelming nibble carrots or eat a cup of cabbage soup in between.

All the best,
Gabriela

Can I do day 5 on day 4 and vice versa

by Gillian
(United Kingdom)

Hiya

I started the CSD yesterday and I am quite happy eating the soup and fruit yesterday and just soup today. I am not having the baked potato tonight and I don't fancy eating all those bananas.

I am happy to eat soup morning noon and night as I quite like and it is very tasty, would it therefore be possible for me to have chicken with vegetables on day 4 at night instead of day 5, in light of the fact I have only been eating soup morning noon and night and fruit on the days I will be allowed. Even at that only a couple of apples.

Thanks


Hi Gillian,

the best weight loss effect you'll achieve when you stick to the exact diet plan. It is important that you keep your insuline level balanced out. This can be reached only when you stick to the plan. All exceptions, vice versas and so on... bear the risk that you will get very, very hungry and give up too early. Please don't omit any allowed food.

All the best,
Gabriela

can I mix the meat types on day 5 and 6

by Sherin
(Germany)

Hallo and thank you for this great website.
I would like to know if I can eat different type of meat on day 5 and 6, like eating salmon in the morning and steak in the evening or chicken during the day and steak in the evening?
thank you for all your efforts



Hi Sherin,
yes - you may even mix the meat types on day 5 and 6 as described. This shouldn't affect your weight loss success. In contrast - this usually increases your motivation,

SOY MILK?
by: Anonymous

I am vegan. Will it effect my weightloss if I drink low fat soy milk on day 4? Can I skip the milk all together?

Hi,
low fat soy milk won't effect your weightloss.
I won't however skip the milk all together.
All the best,

Switching day 5 and day 6

Hi,

I was wondering if it is ok to switch day 5 and day 6 of the cabbage soup diet?

Also, can i eat other vegetables on day 5, or only tomatoes?

Thanks!


Switching Day 5 and 6 shouldn't be a problem. The classic cabbage soup diet plan allows only tomatoes on day 5 - but we have made the experience, if you add other vegetables on day 5 - your impressive weight loss effect will still happen. By the way the cabbage soup itself that you eat on day 5 has many other vegetable ingredients too...

All the best,
Gabriela

6 day vs. 7 day diet

by Andrea
(Philadelphia,Pennsylvania)

I have no option out of cutting the 7 day to a 6 day diet due to a prior commitment. Is there any benefit to bumping up the 7th day rice day on my 2nd meat day? Or should I just eat the meat for days 5 & 6, and skip the rice? Thanks

Hi Andrea,
choose the option you like the best for your last day 6 either meat/fish or rice day. The most important thing is to switch to a healthy nutriton after your "6 day cabbage soup diet". My personal favorite is a longtermn low fat nutrition.

All the best,
Gabriela

switching days 6 and 7

by Tina

I was just wondering if it was okay to switch days 6 and 7? If I do, will it affect my weight loss? If it's not okay to switch the days, how come? Thanks!

Dear Tina,

there is a reason for this special food order on the 7 day cabbage soup diet. Read here more about it: Purpose of each day.

But switching day 6 and 7 shouldn't cause any setbacks.

All the best,
Gabriela

confused the days

by sofia

I mistook day 4 with 5 and started my day with tomatoes instead of bananas will the diet still work?
Hi Sofia,
if it's not too late, continue with the banana diet day - the tomatoes shouldn't matter.

If it's too late, then stick to your tomatoe diet day and continue tomorrow with the banana diet day. Then stick to day 6 and day 7 the following days as planned.

We think the diet should still work for you but you might experience stronger hunger feelings. In that case eat more soup!

All the best,
Gabriela

can i skip a day

by April

Hi i work in fast food. I was wondering in order to stay on the diet if i could skip day 3 to day 4 and move forward as normal and just add day 3 at the end of diet because i know if i dont when i work i will cheat and eat something i shouldnt thank you

Hi April,
it makes sense that the banana diet day comes on day 4! Usually the body needs those carbohydrates after 3 days without them. If you have the banana diet day on day 3 already you might experience more hunger pains than those people sticking to the regular order of the diet. In that case it is very important having the cabbage soup at hand - maybe in a thermos bottle when working.

All the best,
Gabriela

Can I switch days?

by Kristy

I wanted to start this diet tomorrow but I was wondering can Day 6 be switched with Day 4 or 5. My boyfriend was taking me out for supper and I think it will be hard to eat just bananas and milk at a steakhouse. lol.

Dear Kristy,

the order of the cabbage soup diet days makes sense. On day 4 usually your cravings for sugar reach a peak - banana and low fat dairy are a perfect combination to satify this need.

If you switch e.g day 4 and 5 please keep in mind that it may be harder to stick to the whole diet week.

Switching day 6 for day 5 is the better option!

All the best,
Gabriela

mixed up my cabbage soup diet days

I inadvertently followed the day four plan on day three. I have eaten 4 bananas. Can that count as fruit for today? Then I can add veggies, and more fruit?

Thanks


Dear Laura,
you might try that - but I have no idea if it will work. Usually the day 4 with the bananas is important to stop possible hunger cravings.

As you've had bananas already on day 3 you might experience a hard time for the remaining 4 days.
You can only tell if it still works if you check it out. When hunger occurs eat more cabbage soup!

All the best,
Gabriela
