How effective is cabbage diet?
Although it is one of the easiest diets and can help you to lose weight quickly, if you keep it on long term it won’t be effective. It doesn’t provide all the nutrients your body needs.
1000 calories a day (that are eaten in this diet) aren’t enough for a balanced diet that must contain 2000 calories.
The main disadvantage is the yo-yo effect. After this diet you might lose weight, but if you don’t follow the exact rules of this diet afterwards, you gain fat again.
