The 4 Day Diet Cabbage Soup

You are on Transition Day 2.  Which is the same as Transition Day 1. Keep going. While I got some space here, I’m posting the cabbage soup, first introduced in the diet on Induction Day 3.  From The 4 Day Diet by Ian Smith.



  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 onions, diced
  • 1 green cabbage, shredded
  • 1 1/4 quart chicken broth
  • 1 potato, cubed
  • 3 carrots, sliced
  • 1 ham hock
  • 3 tablespoons wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • salt, pepper

How to make: In a big pot, heat the oil and saute the onions or about 5 minutes. Add the cabbage and cook for 15 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, cover and cook at low heat for about 50 minutes. Chill for 8 hours, remove the fat from the top, reheat, and serve.


40 minutes cardio. Don’t forget!
