Cabbage Soup Diet

If eating a bottomless bowl of cabbage soup sounds appetizing, then this is the diet for you. On this program, detoxers are permitted to eat all the cabbage soup they want for seven days, and they can also consume a few other select foods, such as fruit, vegetables and skim milk.

Cabbage is high in dietary fiber, which helps cleanse the digestive system and supposedly detoxes the body. The diet promises a 10-pound weight loss in a week, but like other restrictive detox diets, it’s primarily just water loss that will quickly be regained.

Who’s used it? Jaime Pressly committed herself to bowls of cabbage to lose baby weight, and supposedly Bill Clinton recently used it to slim down before his daughter's wedding.
