Cabbage soup diet?

Hey everyone,
I was talking to a friend about different types of diets and she brought up the cabbage soup diet...I think it's basically a crash diet and probably pretty unhealthy but she said that the soup on which the diet is based is really good actually. Basically the idea is that it's a really low-calorie soup so you can eat tons of it and still lose weight. I was thinking of looking up the recipe but my problem is that I hate cabbage! So I was wondering if anyone had a recipe for a really low cal mushroom soup or something? I've been looking on the recipe boards here and it seems like most of the soups call for cream or some type of meat...does anyone have a low cal, easy, broth based soup?

There's no reason you can't just saute low-carb veggies (dice zucchini, a little onion and tomato, celery, bell peppers, turnip or rutabaga for a potato like bit in there)and then add chicken or beef broth and simmer

As I recall, the soup is full of veggies, but the ppl that I knew that went on it were always hungry and got sick of soup.

Like the others have said, make a soup with veggies. However, to keep from getting hungry, especially if you are on a low carb plan like Atkins, add some beef or chicken to help make it more filling.

I like my veggie soups with roasted vegetables. It gives it a richer flavor. You can roast the onion, carrots, peppers, squash, even green beans,

Substitute french style green beans for the cabbage. A few cans or a big bag of frozen should do it. There are other soups. I think Sacred Heart is a cabbage soup without the cabbage, so to speak.

If you made a homemade veggie soup & just subbed it for one of your meals, then continued to do low carb on the rest of your meals, it should work for you because you would be lowering your calorie intake that way. Just make sure to count the carbs you add to the whole soup & divide it by the number of servings you get out of it. Count the carbs per serving each time you have some of the soup. You could even have it as a snack if you got hungry in the afternoon or evening. I bet it would freeze well too.
