The Drop Diet: Weight Loss or Cancer Prevention?

Millions of people have turned to the amazing slimming meal plans concocted by Weight Watchers that can help you shed pounds and bring forth the shapely, healthy body that has possibly been hidden from view. One of the most well-known Weight Watchers recipes is known as the fat-burning stew. It makes sense to kick-start your diet journey with this synergistic combination of slimming ingredients that can melt as much as 17 pounds off in little more than a week. But are the benefits of this tasty stew (the basis of the diet) limited to just the pleasing results seen on your bathroom scale? We believe there are overall health benefits offered here as well.

The main ingredient in the Weight Watchers Drop Diet stew is cabbage, which is well known to dieters as a negative calorie food. Did you know that it is also known to be high in a nitrogenous compound called indoles? Indoles have been studied and proven to fight several types of cancer. In fact, cabbage was the subject of a study of why Polish female immigrants increased their chances of breast cancer by 300% simply by moving to the U.S.. It was determined that their consumption of cabbage dropped by 2/3 after they immigrated, whereas in Poland it had been a main component of their daily diet (30 pounds per year).

The second main ingredient in the WWDD stew is tomatoes. Recent research has determined that the antioxidants in tomatoes become more concentrated and beneficial with cooking. Antioxidants, as many people know, fight free radical cellular activity in the body, and that equates to a decreased risk of many types of cancers.

The third ingredient in the WWDD stew is bell peppers. Bell peppers, like tomatoes, provide powerful antioxidant protection against free radical damage to cells as well as promotion of heart, lung and vision health. They also contain the carotenoid lycopene, which has been proven to reduce the risk of prostate, cervical, bladder and pancreatic cancers. The beta-cryptoxanthin present in bell peppers has been recommended as a lung cancer preventative.

The fourth ingredient in the WWDD stew is green onions. The anticarcinogenic properties of onions is well known due to their high levels of quercitin, a flavonoid shown to reduce tumor size and protect colon cells from toxic buildup in the intestinal tract. Onions are also rich in fiber, another colon cancer preventative.

The fifth ingredient in the WWDD stew is celery. Celery has been used as a medicinal plant since about the 9th century B.C., but it moved into the kitchen with the Romans and has been a popular ingredient in soups and side dishes ever since. Celery is high in coumarins, antioxidant compounds that strengthen immunity and play a part in destruction of cancerous cells. Celery also contains acetylenics, which halts tumor growth.

The sixth ingredient of the WWDD stew is parsley, which is an optional ingredient according to the tastes of the cook. Parsley has also been a medicinal plant for thousands of years and is well known for its health contributions. Parsley contains myricistin, limonene, eugenol and alpha-thujene, among other nutrients. These are four volatile oil compounds that help neutralize the benzopyrenes found in cigarette smoke as well as in charcoal grill smoke. Parsley also contains the antioxidants luteolin, apiin, apigenin, crisoeriol and luteolin which enhance blood cell health.

This amazing weight loss stew is a variation of the Cabbage Soup diet, adapted by Weight Watchers into a full 7 day eating plan that allows the dieter access to many delicious fruit, vegetable and meat combinations over the duration of the diet. The theme is whole foods, which is the healthiest way to eat. Breads, spreads, fats and sugar are notably absent from the plan, which is probably why it works so well. If you can stick to this diet for a week you will be slimmer, healthier and more energetic at the end of it. If you make this diet the beginning of eating healthier foods moving forward, you may never have to worry about the many chronic and cancerous conditions that often tag along with obesity again.
