Cabbage and Weight Loss

The Inexpensive Superfood That Supports Weight Loss

Cabbage is low in calories and high in superfood power! Whether you enjoy it raw, cooked, or fermented, you always need a head of this inexpensive cruciferous veg in your crisper — especially if you're trying to lose weight on a budget!

  1. It has detoxifying diuretic properties: If you're retaining water, start slicing up some cabbage, and get ready to chow down. Eating water- and mineral-rich cabbage on a regular basis helps your body release excess fluid and water weight; you'll start seeing all your results from the gym sooner!
  2. It helps you debloat: Due to its rich levels of vitamin C and vitamin A, cabbage boasts major anti-inflammatory properties. If you're eating cabbage for its debloating power, choose red cabbage over the green variety, since it boasts higher levels of these vitamins.
  3. It supports digestion: Cabbage is packed with high levels of fiber, which keeps your bathroom schedule regular. Beyond constipation, cabbage juice has also been able to help those who suffer from regular heartburn, peptic ulcers, and other serious digestive tract issues.

Start enjoying cabbage ASAP with these healthy cabbage recipes, or consider making your own probiotic-rich sauerkraut at home!
