If you want to lose weight, a fad diet like the cabbage soup diet won’t get you far. The rapid weight you lose the first week you do it is just water weight. Once you start to eat regularly, you’ll pretty much immediately gain the weight back. If you want to lose weight, we encourage you to do so using healthy methods that create long-term results. Consider scheduling an appointment with a nutritionist who can set up a diet/exercise plan with you. If this isn’t possible, there are websites like Weight Watchers and SparkPeople that are worth trying out. Good luck!
