pre-surgery soup

years ago, i saw a recipe for a vegetable soup that was recommended for patients facing surgery because it helped them lose weight quickly.

i only remember that it started with a head of cabbage and canned tomatoes. it wasn't a "cabbage soup diet" version and was originally designed for heart patients.

all the searches i've done online give me pre-surgery diets for lap-band patients and i'm just having laparascopy for ovarian cysts - nothing as drastic as lap-band...

does anyone know of such a recipe?

TIA!

    Do you mean the Sacred heart diet?

    that could be it. the only version i've seen was in french, so it could have come from a hospital run by a religious order.

    i'll look that up - thanks so much!

    Is this it?

    This is from the 1982 World's Fair Cookbook by Phila Hach

    Diet Soup

    6 large onions
    3 bell peppers
    1 head cabbage
    1 bunch celery
    1 pkg. dry onion soup mix
    2 large cans of tomato juice

    Chop vegetables and add tomato juice and soup mix. Simmer until vegetables are done. Store in refrigerator and use when needed.
