The BEST Weight Loss Cabbage Soup Recipe (7-Day Diet)

This Weight Loss Cabbage Soup recipe is loaded with fresh vegetables. It’s high in flavor, yet naturally low in fat and calories! Make this nutritional soup easily in your instant pot, slow cooker, or on the stove.

This soup is also called wonder soup, weight loss soup, miracle soup, and weight watcher soup. There are so many names for this soup!

Each cup has only 71 calories (see nutritional info below).  It’s a great way to get your vegetables in for the day and is very satisfying. After about a week of this eating plan, you should definitely see some pounds drop off the scale.

Basically, this soup is just veggies and some of my homemade “better than botox” bone broth (which you can make in the slow cooker or in the instant pot). You can also use store-bought vegetable, beef or chicken stock, just be sure that it’s low-sodium.

As for veggies, I kind of just threw in all of my favorites. Zucchini, carrots, celery, onions, tomatoes and some green pepper (red pepper also works). To add a bit more substance to the soup, a good amount of cabbage is added in as well.

Why cabbage?

The cabbage helps to keep you full and has detoxing properties to it. However, if you’re not a fan of cabbage, you could always swap in some baby spinach or kale instead.

I was sure to give my Weight Loss Cabbage Soup a good amount of seasoning with oregano, basil and red pepper flakes. I like my soup spicy, and reports show that spicy food can aid in weight loss, but if you’re sensitive to heat, feel free to leave the red pepper flakes out.

How much weight can you lose on the cabbage soup diet?

Most people lose between 5-10 pounds during the 7-day cabbage soup diet. However, everyone is different.

How do you do the 7-day cabbage soup diet plan?

The original cabbage soup diet allows you to eat all of the cabbage soup you like in addition to adding certain foods on specific days throughout the week (see below). Whats not allowed? Bread, alcohol and carbonated beverages, including diet sodas.

Be sure to drink lots of water while doing this plan, 8-10 glasses is recommended.

How I enjoy weight loss soup to lose weight

I like to enjoy a cup of this Weight Loss Soup for lunch, again for an afternoon snack, and again for dinner with a bit of lean protein on the side.

Ingredients needed for Weight Loss Cabbage Soup

Recipe tips

There’s quite a bit of chopping involved, so prep time is a bit time intense. If you’re short on time, you can use pre-chopped bagged veggies, frozen veggies, or, if your store has a salad bar, you can grab a combination of veggies from there too.

If you’re not looking for the weight loss properties of this soup, but still want to enjoy this amazing vegetable soup, you could bulk it up with a can of kidney beans or some ditalini pasta. If you’re using pasta, just add a cup of it to the instant pot before you seal it and cook it for 5 minutes instead of 4 minutes. Or, simmer it on the stove in your soup for about 10 minutes.

How to make ahead & store

This Instant Pot Weight Loss Soup recipe makes about 14 cups of soup.  Store the leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week. Or, freeze for up to three months.
