The Cabbage Soup Diet

Sunday, January 13, 2013

Remember that crazy diet from way back when?

Who out there didn't try it at some point in our lives? I watched my Mother and Grandmothers both do it time and time again. Needless to say, it never worked. The only good thing that came from it was... THE SOUP! I love the stuff.

I decided that since I have been eating Campbells like it is going out of style, I would make my own. I made my own variation of it over the years, and am pretty sure I almost have the perfect recipe

I am going with my Dad tomorrow - We are going to see The Hobbit and then out to dinner. I am not sure where we are going, but I am hoping TGI Fridays - yumm.. I love their Chicken! I usually get the Dragonfire Chicken. It comes with rice, but I usually tell them no rice. Sometimes, they will let me get an extra side of broccoli, sometimes they won't. I guess it depends on who the server is.

I have to go to the doctors tomorrow too. She just wants to check in with me, make sure I am being healthy and not wasting away to nothing. After that... I am hitting the gym providing she doesn't take too long.

all in all it will be a good day!

    That recipe looks YUMMY! And easy. Win-win! Thanks for sharing, and enjoy your movie night with your dad. :) I saw the Hobbit and really enjoyed it - and this is coming from a Tolkien superfan.

    Ironically, if I've had an overeating bout, I then get in the mood for a nice vegetable soup much like that cabbage soup. If I have it with some bread or other starch and perhaps a few dried beans or dairy, my appetite gets back to normal. But day after day? No need any more.

    There's no end to diet craziness. Just read/listened to the latest installment of Abel James' "Big Fat Mistakes" e-course. He's got the Fat Burning Man blog, which I find very interesting.


    In case anyone wants to check him out.

    I used to do the Cabbage soup diet. I always lost 7-10 pounds and always had it back withen 2 weeks ;-)
    I do however still make my own version of the soup sometimes because it is nice to have a hot bowl of veggie goodness with very few calories when I just want SOMETHING but really have hit my nutritionl "max" for the day.

    I didn't do the cabbage soup diet but I WAS crazy enough to, with my mom, do the 'bread diet' (one day of 'normal' eating followed by one day of nothing but dry whole wheat bread)! Rolling eyes...

    I make a soup I found out about on SP. I think it's called Poor Man's Soup. I may have tweaked it a bit to make it my own, but it is awesome. I don't add meat but navy or cannelini beans if I can find them. I use dry beans, in a can in a pinch but they are not as good. Enjoy your cabbage soup.
