tomato juice instead of tomatoes

How much all natural tomato juice would I have to substitute for the 6 tomatoes? I don't like raw tomatoes or plain cooked.

Tomato Juice has not the same satiation effect as raw tomatoes. The important vegetable fiber is missing. Choose instead a combination of raw peppers & cucumbers (or other vegetables of your choice) and drink 1-2 glasses of tomato juice on this day and you'll be fine.

All the best,
Gabriela

Can you substitute tomato juice for tomatoes?

No! But you can have other vegetables instead of tomatoes on day 5 of the cabbage soup diet.

Tomatoes & V8 Juice

by Kevin V. Morrison
(Trinidad)

Are the tomatoes & V8 juice really necessary?
And is it possible for a 250 pound person to get slimmer on the CSD??


Hi Kevin,
you don't need V8 juice if you don't like. Instead of tomatoes you could use red peppers.

The cabbage soup diet helps you with an impressive weight loss from up to 10 pounds within a week to kick start a healthier nutrition. That in the long run will mean even more weight loss. You get the big opportunity with the csd to detoxify your body and change bad eating habits. Persons with bad eating habits profit from the csd the most.

All the best,
Gabriela

Sugar-Free Cookies
by: Kevin V. Morrison

I ate a few sugar-free cookies while on the diet, on day 5 to be exact. Are sugar-free cookies okay to eat on any day of the diet? The brand of the cookie is Voortman sugar-free cookies.

Hi Kevin,

don't do this. This can cause not only high hunger cravings but may also lead to a much lesser weight loss. Try to stick to the diet plan as close as possible, maybe eat 1-2 extra portions soup in addition to detoxify your body from the starchy cookies.

All the best,
Gabriela

canned tomatoes

by Arleta
(United States)

Thank you for this great site!

Just a quick note to tell you that there are two sizes of canned tomatoes, which are about 1 and 2 lbs each. Would you please specify which size you mean in your recipes, for example, the great Spicy Cabbage soup?

Thank you so much,
Arleta



Hi Arleta,
thank your for the site compliments. You are right, the size of the tomatoe can should be specified. We will correct this without delay.

For the Spicy Cabbage Soup recipe the smaller tomato can is meant. But it wouldn't be a problem if you use the large can. The only thing what could happen, is that the spicy taste of the cabbage soup might dillute.

All the best,
Gabriela

soup substitutions

by Jamie
(Indiana)

In the soup recipe can I substitute tomato sauce or paste for the cans of diced tomoatoes? I do not like cooked tomatoes.

Hi Jamie,

you may put either fresh or diced tomateos in cans in your cabbage soup. No tomato sauce or paste is allowed. But if you don't like it at all you may leave tomatoes out without problems! The cabbage soup diet works even without them...

All the best,
Gabriela

Tomato allergy and cabbage soup diet

by anonymous

I'm allergic to tomatoes. What would you suggest as a replacement? I want to make sure I don't compromise the diet.


For the cabbage soup recipe we recommend to use a tomato free recipe similar to our "Cabbage Soup Viva Italia" with Basil Oil and Pecorino. It tastes delicious and is made without tomatoes. You find the recipe on the following page Cabbage Soup Viva Italia.

For the tomato day 5 it's not easy to give you a recommendation. The red pigment in tomatoes, Licopene, is also found in pink watermelon, grapefruit and some types of papaya. Of course we can't say that these foods are identical to tomatoes but they still have one of the primary phytonutrients (licopene) that give tomatoes such a healthy food reputation.
If in any doubt - please ask your doctor.

Can I cook tomatoes for day 5

by Any

I don't like raw tomatoes. Can I cook tomatoes for day 5?

Also, I am using salt in my soup, is it ok?

And I am not drinking any protein shake. Is it ok?


Hi Ani,
yes, you may cook your tomatoes for day 5. Please limit your salt intake and prefer low-sodium seasoning and many herbs instead.

The healthier cabbage soup diet plan is the one that includes protein - let it be protein shakes or low fat dairy products. You'll find these improved cabbage soup diet plans on this website:

Day 5- sun dried tomatoes

by Carly
(Georgia)

On day 5, can we have sun dried tomatoes as well as fresh tomatoes? Thanks

Hi Carly,
this depends on the ingredients of the sun dried tomatoes. If they are without any oil or other condiments - you can have sun dried tomatoes besides your fresh tomatoes too. The fresh tomatoes haowever have a better purifying effect.

All the best,
Gabriela

fresh tomatoes on 7 day diet

by Sabean

I actually love the soup anyways but have never followed the plan. The only problem I have is day 5- eat up to 6 fresh tomatoes- I can eat a little fresh tomato but mostly fresh tomatoes don't like me. Is there a vegetable that I can substitute? Thanks

Hi Sabean,
there is no need to eat fresh tomatoes, you may also steam them if you like. And if that doesn't work for you just use another vegetable like e.g red peppers and you will be fine too.

All the best
Gabriela
