For the week - I lost fairly consistently, if not a lot. Down 1.1 pounds. The plus, I lost. The negative, not really anything other than a major craving for a BIG FAT JUICY CHEESEBURGER!!!!
The soup recipe options, were very good and filling. I had a decent variety in the meals and I wasn't really bored with the soup. The only downside I can think of is that it probably would have been better to wait another month before hitting a soup diet (I might have to do the Cabbage Soup Diet when it's cold outside....of course then we will be in closed quarters and I would probably stink hubby out of the house with "cabbage farts"....I know you are laughing - - because you know what I mean....actually this might be a great idea, I can get him back!!)
Could I do this diet long term?? During the colder months - I think I could probably stick to this fairly well. Especially with making the big pot of vegetable soup ahead of time, it was easy to just dip into it when I felt a little hungry. Plus the warmth from the soup could warm me right down to the bones when it gets really cold out....soup does a body good!! Being that it was in Good Housekeeping - you know it got the "Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval".
I liked it. I could definatley do this again.The soups were simple enough and not expensive to make. Other family members could have the same soups with you - my hubby had soup two nights along with me and like them.
***** DO NOT DO ANY DIET WITHOUT FIRST CHECKING WITH YOUR DOCTOR***
