Cabbage Soup Diet – Recipe Revealed

Have you heard about losing weight with the cabbage soup diet? This is a diet that is designed to enable you to lose 10 pounds in just seven days and during that time you don’t feel hungry. During the seven days you can eat as much of the low calorie soup as you like along with some other foods that are set out in the diet.

If you have been wondering what the recipe is for this cabbage soup diet then wonder no more. Here is the diet:

Ingredients:

* 2 green peppers
* 6 large green onions
* 1 to 2 cans of diced or whole tomatoes
* 3 carrots
* 1 bunch of celery
* 1 container (around 10 oz.) mushrooms
* Half a cabbage
* 1 pack Lipton soup mix
* 1 or 2 cubes bouillon (optional)
* 1 48 oz can V8 juice (optional)
* 12 cups water if not using V8 juice

Method:

Put all the ingredients into a big pot and boil for a couple of hours. You can saut the onions prior to adding the other ingredients if you prefer but it isn’t necessary. There is no need to add salt as the Lipton soup mix and bouillon will give it enough salt and flavor.

Keep the soup in the fridge and this quantity should last you for the first few days of the diet.

If you find that the soup is too bland for your liking then you can add a little salt, pepper, curry, parsley, garlic or other calorie free spices.

In addition to the soup you can also eat specific foods on certain days as follows:

Day 1: Eat all the fruit you want except for bananas

Day 2: Eat all the vegetables that you like plus you can eat a baked potato with butter

Day 3: Eat all the fruit and vegetables you want except for potatoes and bananas

Day 4: Today you can eat bananas and have skim milk

Day 5: Eat up to 6 tomatoes and 16 oz of beef

Day 6: Eat all the vegetables that you want except baked potato and you can eat 2 to 3 steaks

Day 7: Eat brown rice, vegetables and unsweetened fruit juice

Even though you can eat these other foods you should have at least one serve of soup each day. You can eat as much of the foods allowed on a particular day except those with limited amounts.

This diet is so effective because sticking with these foods means that you are not consuming enough calories to put on weight. The soup has hardly any calories and even combined with the other foods you will still come in at under 1000 calories each day.

The cabbage soup is very easy to make and you can make up a big batch of it that will last a few days and just reheat single servings when required. The other foods allowed are also very easy to prepare.

You shouldn’t continue with this diet for more than seven days. If you have a lot of weight to lose then complete the seven days and then wait at least a week before doing the cycle again. During the week that you aren’t doing the diet you can eat normally but try not to overeat.

The recipe for the cabbage soup diet is simple and effective so why not give it a go.

How To Grow Long, Shiny, Healthy Hair

How To Grow Long, Shiny, Healthy Hair
Janice Johnson

Many men and women complain that their hair is not growing. They buy the most popular hair products, which promise more shine and growth. They buy supplements and read magazines looking for the next quick fix. But what many men and women fail to realize it that the way they treat their bodies plays an enormous role in the state of their hair.

Here are some helpful tips to help grow healthier hair:

Consume a diet high in vital nutrients mainly beta carotene, iodine and protein are necessary for shiny healthy hair.

Iodine is necessary for the production of the thyroid hormone thyroxin. This hormone promotes hair growth. The foods that contain iodine are seafoods like cod, mussels, seaweed and haddock.

Beta Carotene is actually converted by the body into vitamin A which makes the hair strong. You can find it in green and yellow fruits and vegetables like green peppers and cantaloupes.

Protein can be found in foods like meat, eggs and nuts to name a few.

Also, try to exercise weekly. This helps improve the circulation while getting your body in shape and making your body “work” better.

The hormones and healthy chemical processes taking place in your body during your workout sessions, assist in overall health.

Get out! Well, I’m not saying this rudely. But rather literally. Get out of the house more often and get some sun. If you’re at the office during the day, take a short walk outside on your lunch break. Studies have shown that healthy doses of vitamin D received from the sun actually plays a role in hair growth. But don’t forget to protect your hair and scalp at all times.

Always apply a sunscreen lotion to your skin and wear a hat if you’re outside for long periods of time. If you’re not wearing a hat a great tip is applying some sunscreen lotion to the exposed skin on your scalp. This will keep the area from getting burned.

Remember, take care of your hair and skin. You’ll be thankful in years to come!
