The hypothesis of this diet is that the dieter is so motivated to lose 10 pounds in a week that they will eat cabbage soup everyday for 7 days. Each day adds fruit or vegetables or meat.

Ease for Dieter*


  • Easy to stick to for a short time, assuming that you like cabbage soup.
  • Hard to give up carbs and still remain social.

(*My impression is based on my research and how hard I think it would be to maintain for 1, 6, 8, 10, 20 weeks. Your experience may vary.)
