Miracle in a Bowl – Cabbage Soup and Fat Flush – The Famous Soup Diets

Miracle in a Bowl – Cabbage Soup and Fat Flush – The Famous Soup Diets

Weight Loss Programs are a dime a dozen and I’ve tried a LOT of them!  If you’re looking for a good jumpstart for your next diet, you just can’t do better than the Cabbage Soup Diet or the Fat Flush Diet!

Both are absolutely delicious and healthy and cleansing and will give you the boost you need to get moving with your diet.

The grand thing about these 2 soup diets is that either one will help you just flush that fat right out of your body and lose 7 to 10 pounds in just one week!

EVERYBODY has heard about Soup Diets!  Our favorites are the Cabbage Soup Diet and the Fat Flush Soup Diet!

There isn’t anything magical about either of these soups – we all know that.



But both soups are loaded with low carbohydrate, low fat, low calorie ingredients and that just makes them golden in the category of a good weight loss program.

During the week you’re eating one of these soups to lose that 5 to 10 pounds you’ll be leaving off your sugar, dairy, high carbohydrate foods, fat and salt.

OH WAIT! IS THERE ANYTHING LEFT?  There will be no quart of milk for breakfast, no cokes with lunch or supper, no bread for any reason with anything (including none with the soup).  So far – it isn’t sounding like much fun, is it?

Just leaving off sugar, dairy, high carbohydrates, fat and salt will cause you to immediately lose that fluid retention that most of us have.

So the face gets a little thinner and the tummy goes down just a tad and we think “OH WOW … A MIRACLE in a SOUP Bowl”

But no, that was just fluid and you’re going to have to get rid of about 8 to 10 pounds of fluid before you get into your blubber storage.

That’s why these diets seem so miraculous, because they make you lose fluid fast – which is easy when you’re leaving off these few food categories. However – both soups are absolutely delicious and do work for rapid weight loss.

 

"Miracle in a Bowl! Cabbage Soup Diet vs. Fat Flush Soup Diet - Love, Home and Health"

The soups are both VERY filling and packed with nutrition … and just absolutely good for you!

Some recipes you will find elsewhere will include onion soup mix.  That stuff – while very delicious, is poison in a box.

DO NOT add the onion soup mix because it’s loaded with MSG and other excitotoxins, poisons and sodium out the wazoo.  

“Soup Diet” – The Plan

A light but high protein breakfast – like boiled eggs or egg white, veggie omelet would be a super way to start your day.

Then soup for lunch and supper and you can literally have all you want.

A light and healthy snack mid morning, afternoon and evening – sliced applesor cucumbers or CELERYwould be good to keep that blood sugar from plummeting.

A few Fisher Walnut halves or Almonds are always good with 1/2 slice of cheese. You could even have a little soup for any of those snacks.

revised out the wazoo over the years.

Half a head of cabbage

6 large green onions

2 green peppers

3 CARROTS

1 container of mushrooms

1 bunch of CELERY1 or 2 cans of tomatoes

1 48oz can of V8 juice (optional)

Fat Flush Diet Books - Love Home and Health
Have you read our Review of the Fat Flush Diet Books?

1 or 2 cubes of bouillon (optional) –
(Beef bouillon contains MSG and is not just unhealthy but very dangerous.
I USE NOTHING with MSG in it.  I sometimes add natural chicken broth to my soups.
But ONLY homemade or natural broths with NO MSG and not big words you can’t pronounce  –

Season with salt, pepper, curry, garlic powder, parsley, or any seasoning that is preferred

Some recipes call for the addition of a pkt of dry onion soup mix.  ( I NEVER EVER use this for anything!)

Did you know that dry soup mix is LOADED with MSG?  And MSG is a subject for another day – but STEER CLEAR!

I hope you find this helpful and I always love to hear your feedback!

    When you say one container of mushrooms (for the cabbage soup) are they fresh or canned and approximately how many? Also when you say two green peppers are you referring to bell peppers? And on this soup diet do you have the soup for breakfast lunch and dinner or do you have other things as well? Thanks!

      Fresh mushrooms…I rarely use canned anything … and just be your own judge on how much depending on how big a pot you’re making. Jalapeno peppers…and just to your liking on amount. Soup…replace 2 meals a day with the soup … it’s absolutely delicious … and use it for snack if needed…..SOMETIMES I’ll add a cracker or two.

    They both sound good but if you are trying to be healthful I don’t think the stuff in the Lipton soup mix is very good for you, just my 2 cents.

    • Kay Comer said:

      I absolutely agree Lady Hawthorne… and I would imagine that soup mix has msg in it and I just can’t handle msg AT ALL. When I’d make it.. I’d leave off the soup mix … because I was just too leary of msg…Thanks for reading and thanks tons for your comments.

    How many calories per serving is the cabbage soup?

    March 29, 2015
    • Kay Comer said:

      Hi Toni – The calories are going to vary from about 70 to 100. As you probably know – all of the ingredients are low calorie: tomatoes, carrots, mushrooms, peppers, onions, cabbage, etc. I’d say the soup I make would have close to 70 calories per serving OR EVEN LESS – because I lean heavily on the broth itself … lol What you REALLY have to watch is the spices and salt – because those can make your body hold fluids and prevent weight loss. It’s going to be a lot of water that you’re losing in that first week anyway … so you sure don’t want to do anything to make you HOLD water… 🙂
      Some recipes call for the onion soup mix … but I don’t use that because even though it’s delicious .. it’s full of additives that are poison in my opinion and also cause big fluid retention. I also don’t use the boullion (sp?) cube. I DO use extra V8 and I always use the low sodium V8.
      The good thing about this soup IS … if you get hungry or just think you want to snack … it’s right there … it’s filling … and doesn’t add hardly any calories … Add a low carb, low sodium and sensible meal once or twice during the day and use this to keep from snacking … even that will help you lose weight. It’s those high carbs, sugar and sodium that get you. Hope this helps. Kay

          I usually just put it all in the pot and turn on the burner. I always have half a dozen things going … and I pick the easiest route. Hope you like it … it’s delicious.

      Kim and I are about to do a video making this soup. I think it’s our most read blog of all time. We’re hoping to do that very soon and possibly in the next couple weeks… 🙂

  6. I haven’t tried the fat flush soup but I have the cabbage, and it’s good but I get tried of the cabbage after a couple days. I think I’ll try the other it has more protein, and sounds more filling. Thanks for sharing! Pinning!

      They’re both delicious Linda. I add lots of tomato’s to mine and tomato juice. I think I could live on tomato’s and it’s juice … thanks for reading … kay

    The soup with the ground turkey is absolutely delicious! How many calories per serving does it contain?

    June 25, 2015
    • Kay Comer said:

      Seems like I read it’s considered to be about 70 calories a bowl … but now that’s going to depend how much meat and or veggies you scoup out in each bowl. 🙂 ISN’T IT DELICIOUS??? If you’re into homemade soups … also ck out the Swamp Cabbage Soup recipe in my recipe section – that’s also low calorie and SO SO delicious…

    I started with that cabbage soup diet and within a year was 115 lbs lighter. Of course I was in my 20’s back then (a hundred years ago) What I did was to alternate with other ideas, I would use the cabbage soup for 3 days then just eat brown rice and veggies the rest of the week. I walked virtually everywhere I went so I got a great workout every day. And most of all, I got happy.

    What would you recommend as a substitute for the cilantro, ans I absolutely cannot stand the taste of that. Thank you!

    September 6, 2015
    • Kay Comer said:

      Hi Sue … If you don’t care for cilantro why don’t you add extra parsley or even dice up some raw baby spinach in the soup. The main thing is to keep it healthy but low calorie. I’ve made it several times over the years and juggled the recipe around to suit us. Thanks for reading and I’m about to post my own “42 Day Weight Loss – Get Healthy Challenge” later this afternoon. I hope you’ll check that and consider joining us … there’s no charge whatsoever and it’s said to give you a good weight loss and bring your numbers to or closer to normal in just 42 days….I hope you’ll check it out.

        Hi Kay – thank you so much for replying and the suggestion of the spinach — I made it last night and my co-worker and I just tried it and love it!! I’ll look into the 42-Day Weight Loss Challenge you mentioned. Thanks again!

    hi! Just wanted to know how much water do I need to use for both soups? Thanks so much!

    October 3, 2015
    • Kay Comer said:

      I add little or no extra water – your broth will come from the tomato juice and the juices that cook out of the veggies. Thanks for ready – hope you stop back by soon. 🙂 Kay

    Can you eat avocado since it is a fruit. It is high in fat but good fat. Just wondering.

    October 8, 2015
    • Kay Comer said:

      You do adhere to a very healthy diet along with the soup. Low carb veggies, healthy lean meat on occasion. And on the Avacado – they are so healthy they are actually listed as a good food on most diets. We eat avocado’s ourselves and I’ll often just mash them and add lots of diced onion and tons of freshly squeezed lime juice. It’s delicious that way and the onion and lime are also very healthy. Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you stop by again really soon. Kay

    With the fat flush soup, are the jalapeños optional? I like a little kick to my food, but not TOO spicy, just wondering if it will make a difference?

    October 18, 2015
    • Kay Comer said:

      It “will” make a difference because the jalapeno’s give it a ‘bite’. I put cayenne in absolutely everything we eat – gravy – mashed potatoes … EVERYTHING .. so we don’t notice the hot of a little jalapeno. Cayenne and other hot peppers are very healthy … increase metabolism and help keep arteries flowing more freely if you use them enough. We have cayenne, jalapeno’s, onions and tomatoes in some form every single day. We’re 69 and 70 and can work circles around any GROUP of 35 year olds you want to put us up agains….strength AND energy wise … lol Thanks SO SO much for reading and hope you’ll check back often. Email any time I LOVE to hear from our readers .. Kay

    Just something I noticed, optional ingredient in your recipe calls for V8 cocktail. There is an abundance of sodium in that product. Although, I believe it would enhance the soup, do you have any other suggestions.

    November 12, 2015
    • Kay Comer said:

      It is recommended by the holistic greats that we all eat at least 2 tbsp of any tomato product a day. We drink V8 EVERY DAY – but we buy the low sodium … thanks for reading …
