This is another post in my Diet #FAIL series where I talk about some of the diets I've been on during my lifetime. Join in and share your experiences!
Surely you've heard of The Cabbage Soup Diet, right? Basically you eat cabbage soup ALL THE TIME, with a few select extras depending on the day of the week. Maybe one day you can eat fruit. Or another you can eat a potato. And another you might get *gasp* some meat.
When I was about 12, my mom went on The Cabbage Soup Diet. I liked cabbage, and I liked soup, so she didn't have to convince me much to do it with her. I was like her little diet buddy.
The thing about this diet is that it's a short term fix. DIET shouldn't automatically equal “unsustainable” or “fad.” DIET means “a way of eating.” With the cabbage soup, you consume about 800-1200 calories a day, which, for most people, is way too low.
I think we did the diet for about 5 days, at which point my skinny-minny sister and dad were probably begging for some freakin' real food.
What about you? Ever try this one?
