Rapid Weight Loss Soup Diets

Rapid Weight Loss Soup Diets

Fad diets are classified as diets that cannot be sustained for a long period of time. Soup diets fit the mold. Typical soup diets claim to promote a weight loss of 10 lbs. or more in 2 weeks or less. While these claims may be true in some cases, the majority of the weight loss won't be from fat; it will be water weight. Diets such as these are unhealthy and not recommended; proceed at your own risk.

Cabbage Soup Diet

    Cabbage Soup Diet

    This diet is based on the idea that restricting yourself to portion sizes and calorie allowances only leads to cheating on your diet. The Cabbage Soup diet is intended to be followed as a 7-day plan. Each day on the diet is different: you will be indulging in different food groups each day, the one constant being that you can have unlimited cabbage soup. The diet claims to promote a weight loss of up to 10 lbs. in just 7 days. Of course, the weight loss claim is unsubstantiated, and losing such a drastic amount of weight in such a short period of time is dangerous. A side effect that should be expected just by taking a look at the main ingredient is incredible flatulence. If you embarrass easily or must work in public all day, this diet may not be right for you.

Sacred Heart Soup Diet

    Sacred Heart

    The Sacred Heart Soup diet claims to be affiliated with the Sacred Heart Hospital in Montreal Canada; however the hospital denies any affiliation with the diet. The diet claims to promote a weight loss of 10 to 17 lbs. in just 1 week. While there has been speculation about the hundreds of people who claim to have experienced extreme weight loss on this diet, such rapid results are reserved only for those who are morbidly obese; a person of average size cannot shed that amount of weight in such a short time. This diet works much like the Cabbage Soup diet in that you can only indulge in specific foods each day (e.g., unlimited fruits on Wednesday; eat as much beef and vegetables as you can handle on Saturday). If the Sacred Heart Soup diet and the Cabbage Soup diet were measured against each other, the Sacred Heart Soup diet would be the champion: flatulence is not a side effect, and the soup itself is more filling and tastier.

Amazing Soup Diet

    Thumbs up!

    The Amazing Soup Diet is unlike any other soup diet included on this list. Unlike the abovementioned soup diets, the Amazing Soup Diet isn't based on a fad or food groups. The Amazing Soup Diet claims to help its dieters lose up to 20 lbs. quickly, however no specific timeline is provided. The Amazing Soup Diet is based on the premise that a calorie-controlled diet leads to weight loss. The Amazing Soup Diet actually allows you to eat three hearty, calorie-controlled (400 calories) non-soup meals per day (breakfast, lunch and dinner). Any other time of the day you get hungry, you can fill up on limitless bowls of a 45-calorie soup. This diet is ideal for people who feel the need to "munch" all the time, because the low-cal soup satisfies the oral fixation.
