A number of recent studies have proved that soup, broth, puree, or chunky, reduces your appetite and calorie intake. Good thing about the soup is that it’s liquid based what enables you feeling full with only few calories consumed. It is also high in fiber which helps the digestion and can have lean meats or beans with protein that can keep you satisfied for a long period.
Japanese and European studies consistently report that consuming soup on a daily basis is associated with a reduced risk of being overweight and obesity. Through global research, it was shown that increased soup consumption aided weight loss and regulation.
One particular study conducted a 10-week behavioral program for weight loss and discovered the participants who had soup four or more times a week had lost 20.4% of their excessive weight, in contrast to those who ate it less than four times weekly who had lost only 14.7% of their excess weight.
Our advice is to skip the restaurant soup and make a favor to your body, wallet and waist. Start cooking your weight-loss soups at home.
