The Cabbage Soup Diet

Cabbage soup is the magical soup that's supposed to help with weight loss and there is even a diet named after it called the Cabbage Soup Diet. It is a very strict diet where you can lose up to 10 pounds. For an entire week, you eat large amounts of this soup but during this time (7 days) you can also eat other foods like fruits and vegetables, beef, chicken, and brown rice according to Mayo Clinic's website.

I give props to anyone that can follow a strict diet like that. I could never just eat cabbage soup for that long of a time period. In fact, I'd get pretty bored with it. That is the brilliant part about myWW. It's zero points and can be served for lunch or dinner. Plus, you're getting in vegetables for the day.

How to make Cabbage Soup

  1. Spray pot with nonstick cooking spray.Saute onions carrots and garlic for 5 minutes.
  2. Add broth, Tomato paste, cabbage, green beans, basil, oregano, and Salt & Pepper to taste.
  3. Simmer for about 5-10 minutes until all vegetables are tender then add the zucchini and simmer for another 5 or so minutes.
  4. I have tried different variations. Leaving out green beans. Adding chopped green onions in addition to the yellow onion.
  5. All very good. You can customize it to your liking.

What can I serve cabbage soup?

  • You don't just want to eat this zero point soup all day if you're on a diet, you need some protein and carbs to help keep you full.
  • Carbs: Try making my Air Fryer Garlic Bread recipe or Easy Cheesy Garlic Bread sticks as a side.
  • Protein:Make some air fryer chicken breast or air fryer salmon. Check out How to Grill Top Sirloin Steak which would make this even fancier.

Recipe FAQs

Why do you lose so much weight following the cabbage soup diet?

If you follow the cabbage soup diet you can lose up to 10 pounds when you first start. This cabbage soup is very low in calories and you can eat it for every meal. The main reason for weight loss is being in a calorie deficit and eating fewer calories than what one would normally eat.

Can Cabbage Soup be Made in an Instant Pot?

Combine cabbage, onions, carrots, green beans, and zucchini to an Instant Pot with the garlic, tomato paste, and beef broth. Add the seasonings. Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 15 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build. Release the pressure using a natural release method.

Can cabbage soup be made in a slow cooker?

Add all the ingredients to your slow cooker and cook on low for 4 to 5 hours.

Does Cabbage Soup Help with Weight Loss?

To lose body fat you need to be in a calorie deficit whether or not you track calories or points. This cabbage soup is very low in calories and is a wonderful addition to your diet.
Your body needs other nutrients like proteins, fat, and whole grains to help you feel full and keep you satisfied all day. If all you ate was cabbage soup all day long, you'd be starving for the whole entire time, so please eat this soup with other healthy foods!

    I'm no longer on WW too. I got tired of them changing the points system all the time and just stick to calorie counting. Glad you like it and stick to whatever diet works for you! 🙂

  5. Alissa Schroeder says

    I’m no longer a Weight Watcher as I’ve embraced Intermittent Fasting (Delay, Don’t Deny) with fantastic results. But I love this recipe and make it many times during thanksgiving inter months. Sometimes I add ground turkey and sauté onions/garlic in it (it’s great). But of course that is no longer zero points.
