1 – Is cabbage good for weight loss?
Cabbage is largely associated with weight loss because of the cabbage soup diet. The cabbage soup diet is a crash diet which requires eating large amounts of cabbage soup for a week. Because the cabbage soup diet limits calories, it can be quick and effective for losing weight.
But the cabbage soup diet is nutritionally incomplete, so should not be adhered to for more than a week at a time.
Contrary to some reports, cabbage does not actually burn body fat. Even though cabbage will not burn fat from your body, it’s still an ideal addition to any weight loss diet. Cabbage is low in calories and high in dietary fiber. Dietary fiber helps to control appetite and keep blood sugar levels stable.
