Cabbage diets are tough and softer. Cheap, simple and effective!

Three-day cab­bage is a quick and inex­pen­sive way to lose 3–4 extra pounds. In addi­tion, cab­bage is incred­i­bly healthy! And by the way, dish­es with cab­bage and meat are great for a pro­tein diet, because they have a min­i­mum of car­bo­hy­drates.

Delicious and no frills

The essence of the diet is to have a cab­bage dish for break­fast, lunch and din­ner. For exam­ple, for break­fast, eat a cou­ple of whole-grain bread sand­wich­es and a coleslaw. For lunch — cab­bage soup, and for din­ner — baked meat or fish with a side dish of cab­bage or a fresh sal­ad. For 3 days of the diet, you will lose up to 3–4 kg. You don’t have to fight the feel­ing of hunger: cab­bage is slow­ly digest­ed and retains a feel­ing of sati­ety for a long time. Which cab­bage to choose? Any — all its types are use­ful! But if you make a rat­ing of use­ful­ness, Brus­sels, broc­coli and col­or will get into the top three. Broc­coli con­tains carotene, as well as choline and methio­n­ine (pre­vent the accu­mu­la­tion of cho­les­terol in the body). Brus­sels sprout has 2.5 times more veg­etable pro­tein than white cab­bage. Vit­a­min C is also 2–3 times more. In addi­tion, it is rich in potas­si­um and is famous for its anti-car­cino­genic prop­er­ties. Col­or is easy to digest, con­tains a lot of pro­tein and vit­a­mins. Improves metab­o­lism and diges­tion.

Hard: 10 kg in 10 days

There is anoth­er vari­ety of cab­bage diet, not the fastest, but high­ly effec­tive. First of all, due to the fact that the low-calo­rie con­tent of cab­bage does not pre­vent it from con­tain­ing most of the vit­a­mins, min­er­als and veg­etable fiber nec­es­sary for the body (stim­u­lat­ing the intestines). All vari­eties of cab­bage are good, but sauer­kraut has the low­est calo­rie con­tent — 19 kilo­calo­ries. From this point of view, the cab­bage diet is more effec­tive if you replace fresh cab­bage with sauer­kraut every three days.

Dur­ing the cab­bage diet with­out restric­tions, you can eat cab­bage leaves and drink green tea or water. And in the morn­ing, cof­fee is sim­ply nec­es­sary, because it speeds up meta­bol­ic process­es from 1% to 4%, which means addi­tion­al weight loss. Salt, sug­ar, flour and alco­hol are pro­hib­it­ed. If you fol­low the rules, then in 10 days you can lose weight from 6 to 10 kg.

  • Break­fast: green tea, cof­fee.
  • Lunch: a sal­ad of fresh cab­bage and car­rots in veg­etable (prefer­ably olive) oil. Boiled beef, chick­en or lean fish no more than 200 g.
  • Din­ner: fresh cab­bage sal­ad, one quail (or half a chick­en) egg, one fruit (but not a banana).
  • Not lat­er than 2 hours before bed­time, drink a glass of fat-free (1%) kefir.

Cab­bage sal­ad can be replaced with cab­bage soup with veg­eta­bles at any time (you can alter­nate). The cab­bage diet also does not impose any restric­tions on the amount of soup eat­en.

A ten-day diet is good because you real­ly part with kilo­grams, and part for a long time. And it is bad in the same way as all oth­er diets. To pre­vent excess weight from return­ing back, you need to recon­sid­er your eat­ing habits.
