Soup is certainly one of the best things that you can eat when you are trying to lose weight. A cabbage soup diet is one of the best types of soup that you can eat. Ok, it doesn’t sound the most appetising and, particularly when we were children, the cabbage was always the last thing that we would choose to eat. However, cabbage soup can be made so as to not taste of cabbage and, as long as you don’t go overboard and start putting in ingredients that will obviously stop you losing weight, it is an incredibly good way to change your diet slowly.
The reason why cabbage weight loss is achievable is because cabbage is water based, and water doesn’t contain many calories. In essence, soup is also water based; similar to a stock. Because you don’t take in many calories through eating soup it can act as a catalyst to losing weight. Of course, to only have cabbage in soup is not enough to sustain the body throughout the day. It is because of this that you add other vegetables. Apart from adding flavour and a few extra calories to a water based meal, it also adds bulk which helps to fill your stomach up, meaning that after you have eaten cabbage soup you are less inclined to snack.
It is good, therefore, to know a cabbage soup recipe that you can use to make the soup should you feel inclined.

The best thing about soup is that you can make it in any sized batch. You don’t even have to scale up all the ingredients by the same amounts; the fantastic thing about soup is that you can experiment to your heart’s content – unlike other foods where the ingredients are very much fixed. If you make a large batch then any time you feel peckish you can have a bowl of soup; it fills you up sufficiently whilst not adding too many calories to your daily intake.
