Old Hospital Pre-Surgery – Peel-A Pound Cabbage Soup

by EzekielDiet.com
Posted on Nov 28, 2018

EZ Diet Note:  This is an interesting recipe because of the story  attached to it as a heart hospital’s pre-surgery 7 day diet.  It’s similar to my weight loss vegetable soup.  I’ll start adding cabbage and a little celery to mine from now on as well.

This may have been the beginning of the infamous cabbage soup diet you still hear about, normally in a disparaging way. Like another fad diet that came and went.  The key to this diet or any diet is fresh food, getting completely off highly processed food, sugar and other white carbohydrates.

A couple problems with the soup recipe:  1 ) replace the processed possibly MSG laden onion soup mix with a healthier option. See an onion soup mix replacement at the bottom of this blog post. 2) Replace the super high sodium bullion cubes with Herbox sodium free bullion or low/no sodium broth.  He comments that the soup doesn’t need extra salt or pepper, I guess not, that’s because it’s spiked to over 6,500 mg of sodium (without the Onion Soup Mix) because of the bullion cubes.

There may be benefits to pink sea salt before surgery because of the mineral content.  I wouldn’t use bullion though, period.  I’ve had a holistic dentist ask me to increase pink sea salt before a dental procedure.

I think it would be easier to throw all this in a 6 quart crock pot and let it slow cook for 4 hours.  It will need some pink sea salt and pepper and maybe some garlic powder to taste, and maybe even some butter : ) as you heat it up in a small frying pan.  A 6 quart Crock Pot filled up will take 3 plastic tubs in the fridge.  Go easy on the celery, maybe 2 single stalks, 4 or 5 stalks  max.

Are you ready to lose weight quickly without exercise?

This Peel-a-Pound Soup burns more calories digesting it than your body intakes, so you lose weight quickly, plus it’s healthy and tastes fantastic!!!

The full 7 Day Diet is listed below the soup recipe.

7 Day Diet provided by the Heart Hospital of Baton Rouge, LA.

1st Day: Eat as much of the listed fruits as you want at each meal, plus as much of the soup as you want. Apples, Oranges, Tangerines, Satsumas, Cantaloupes, Watermelons, Pears, Plums, Peaches, Papayas, and Pumpkin.

2nd Day: Eat as much of the listed vegetables as you want, plus soup, plus a baked potato. Asparagus, Bean Sprouts, Broccoli, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Celery, collards, Cucumbers, Eggplant, Green Beans, Mushrooms, Okra, Peppers, Radishes, Spinach, Tomatoes, and Zucchini.

3rd Day: Eat as much of the vegetables AND fruit as you want, plus the soup.

4th Day: Throughout the day, eat 8 bananas and drink 8 glasses of skimmed milk, plus the soup. Feel free to cut up some of the bananas, place into a blender with some sugar substitute and some of the milk to make a nice shake.

5th Day: Eat as many tomatoes as you want, 1 1/2 pounds of meat (beef, pork, chicken, or fish) plus the soup.

6th Day: Eat as much of the vegetables as you want, 1 1/2 pounds of meat, plus the soup.

7th Day: Cook 1 1/3 pounds of Brown rice and eat 1/3 of the rice at each meal along with any of the vegetables, plus the soup.

Note: You can have any amount of coffee or tea without sugar or cream. If you want to use a local dressing on the vegetables, you may do so. You can also have Parmesan cheese with your vegetables to help with the flavor. The more of the soup that you eat the better it is for you because, it is said, the soup takes more calories to burn up food value from it than it has calories itself.
