Here is the Basic Cabbage Soup Diet Recipe from Sharon, shared on our forum. You can read User Reviews here.


  • 6 large green onions (1 bunch)
  • 2 green bell peppers
  • 1 or 2 cans of tomatoes (14.5 ounce size, diced or whole)
  • 1 bunch celery, sliced
  • 1/2 head cabbage, chopped
  • 1 package (Lipton) onion soup mix
  • 1 or 2 cubes bouillon (optional)
  • 1 48 oz can V8 juice, or 6 cups water or light chicken or vegetable broth
  • Season to taste with salt, pepper, parsley, curry, garlic powder, etc.*


Simmer or slow cook all until soup is done.

*If slow cooking, add seasonings about an hour before done. Eat all the soup you want, whenever you want. 

Here is the Basic Diet Plan:

First Day - All fruit is fine, except bananas; soup
Day 2 - Any and all vegetables, baked potato with butter for dinner; soup
Day 3 - Combine Day 1 and 2, without potato; soup
Day 4 - Up to six bananas, all the skim milk you want; soup
Day 5 - 10 to 20 ounces of beef, a can of tomatoes, 6 to 8 glasses of water; soup
Day 6 - All the beef and vegetables you want; soup
Day 7 - Brown rice, unsweetened fruit juices and vegetables; soup

Note: No bread, alcohol, or carbonated beverages - not even diet soda
