Patient discussion about cabbage

Q. Will cabbage soup diet will be helpful for me? I have heard about cabbage soup diet. It’s been said that it helps in weight loss. I am overweight and due to this I always lose focus on my studies. I had tried a lot to exercise but could not make it up with the required regularity. So now I have decided to start diet therapy. Will cabbage soup diet will be helpful for me?

A. If you are planning for short- term diet change, replace it with a cabbage soup diet plan. This is the right choice when you are on a major weight loss plan. You need a healthy diet to help you for a good start towards a healthy life. But if you want a long -term diet plan with your weight- loss plan then cabbage soup diet is not a good option as there are not enough of nutrients in cabbage soup diet required by the body.

Q. Has anyone tried the cabbage diet? I'm interested in knowing if this is a good diet.

A. Personally I have tried it and first of all- 1. You cannot eat cabbage longer than a week, it's impossible 2. It is a very bad diet because it does not contain all the major food products one should eat every day, and allows fast yet dangerous weight loss 3. You end up putting back all the weight you lost once you stop, because you start eating like you used to, and you did not use lifestyle changes that will stick with you for the long term.
