Loose Weight by eating Soups!
Soup is a comfort food, makes you think of Grandma’s Home Cooking and even helps you get over a cold! There is nothing like a pot of Chicken Noodle Soup to make you feel better.
But Soup is more than that! It can actually help you loose weight. A 2014 study concluded, that soup eaters have smaller waists than people who do not eat soup.
Broth based soups have less calories than cream soups, so try and stick with them if at all possible! If you do have a craving for something heartier, look for low-fat milk or low-sodium broth.
Add your own vegetables for some extra fiber!
Get in the habit of having a bowl of soup before dinner! It takes your brain 20 minutes or so to realize, that you had enough to eat! That is why you have that “stuffed” feeling when you eat too fast, you do not give your brain the chance to register that your stomach is full and send out the message to stop eating.
By eating soup first, you have a little break between courses (and fill your stomach some), which gives the brain more time to realize that you had enough to eat!
Here are a couple of cookbooks I discovered, that can help in your efforts.
