They claimed you can eat as much of this healthy soup as you want and that it would help you shed off those pounds.

Cabbage is an excellent source of vitamin C, potassium, and it will also give your daily diet a good fiber boost. So I guess it is only natural that a soup based around this wonderful vegetable would be great for weight loss diets.
