The diet consists of introducing large amounts of vegetables, especially cabbage, into the menu. They are a rich source of vitamins, nutrients and fiber. Here's a recipe for a slimming cabbage soup.

Cabbage dietregulates the intestines, cleans them, has a diuretic effect and thus causes weight loss by up to five kilograms in a few days.

However, since the diet is low in protein, calcium and fat-soluble vitamins, it should not be used for more than a week.

The main dish is cabbage soup, dominated by Italian cabbage (easier to digest than white). You can eat it without restrictions, whenever we are hungry.

You also need to drink plenty of still water while on the diet - at least eight glasses a day. However, alcohol, sweetened carbonated drinks, sweets and sugar, animal fats and red meat are forbidden.

Cereal products, skim milk and poultry are allowed in small amounts, but they only appear on the fifth day of treatment.

The diet is easy to use, even for those who are in a hurry. We can cook more soups, pour them into half-liter jars and take them with us, e.g. to work - they are also tasty when cold.

You don't feel hungry with this diet because fiber fills your stomach, making you feel full.
