Have been on prednisone for 14 months for autoimmune urticaria; down to 8mg a day with some breakouts. Would the cabbage soup diet be harmful?
Describe sandwich!: Come on! Depends what is in the sandwich! Personally why not go for a salad with a balsamic dressing? The real key is to eat enough to not be hungry. Salads and fresh veg you can eat unlimited amounts. Get full. Soup is also a great choice. I do not like the sandwich option because you should probably cut back on the bread! ...Read more

Good news ; bad news: Good news is that cabbage soup is good for you. Bad news, its not good for wt loss that is long term. Only types of wt loss that will be long term are those types that don't burn muscle. Quick usually means reduced calories. A reduced calorie prog that doesn't burn muscle has to equal a food that's nutrient dense. Cabbage is good but not that good. Meal replac shakes are hi in nutrients and lo in cal's. ...Read more

YES: Low carbs does not mean "no carbs." instead, you are more selective about which carbs you include in a diet where protein is the dominant food source. In general, avoid the most common delayed food allergens (e.g., cow's milk, wheat, and sugar) as they can cause inflammatory reactions. If tacos and tortilla soup are corn-based they are ok. Use milk (e.g., rice) and sugar (e.g. Stevia) substitutes. ...Read more

Calorie creep: We plateau because we are human and get tired of dieting! Then we nibble just a little bit more than we think we're eating because we're hungry! Try to break the cycle by doing a 1 day partial fast: eat only water based soup and no solid food. It will be hard. You'll lose weight. Don't binge the next day! You'll find that after the 1 austere day, your "regular" diet food will seem like a lot. ...Read more

I had all four wisdom teeth removed six days, no stitches. The wounds have clotted up. I have been on a smoothie and soup diet. What can I eat now?
Tooth Extraction: 6 days after wisdom tooth removal, you should be able to eat most things as long as you take smaller bites and keep the food away from the open wounds as much as possible. Also, make sure you rinse well with plain or mild salt water (warm is more soothing) to get any food particles that may have wondered into the extraction sites rinsed out. You seem to be doing great! ...Read more
Hi. I had the stomach flu 4 days ago. Lasted about 24 hours. Now haven't had a bm for 3 days. Soft diet of water, soup, toast, pudding, and applesauce?
Eat less + exercise: There are a huge number of diet programs. Most emphasize high quality foods like vegetables. Any diet that actually reduces your caloric intake to less than you burn in a day will work. It's not the diets that are in question, it's our ability to follow them long enough to get results. Weight watchers has a nice online program that my patients like, but do any diet that you feel good on and can do. ...Read more
Probably not: To lose a pound, you have to burn off 3500 calories that your don't ingest. To lose 30 pounds, therefore, you would need to burn off an extra 105, 000 calories over 2 months, or 1750 calories/day. That's the same as eating what you're eating now and walking or running 175 miles/day. Your feet are really going to be sore. Doesn't mean you shouldn't try restricting diet and increasing activity though. ...Read more

I think it is a horrible diet. A breakfast of sugared coffee only is not a good idea. Best to adopt a lifestyle of sensible eating.
I would put this diet in the same category as the "hot chick" diet: pepsi and cigarette for each meal.
It is not what or how you eat once in a while that affects things, rather how you eat usually. ...Read more
