Verdict : Cabbage soup diet

A diet plan review suggests that this is a quick fix, a way to jump start your weight loss, but is not sustainable. Because the diet is low in complex carbohydrates, protein, vitamins and minerals, it should not be used for more than 7 days.

Following up with a sensible eating and exercise program is the way to make this work in the long term.
