Eating Soup Generates Weight Loss

Bowl of Soup 5-14-17

Starting back on my soup meals. In the past two weeks I have managed to lose 6 lbs.

Eating soup for weight loss is a good idea.
People who regularly eat soup are less likely to be overweight than those who avoid soup, according to a study published in “PLOS ONE” in September 2013.  Starting off your meals with soup may also help you eat less at your meal, according to another study published in “Appetite” in November 2011, regardless of the form of the soup.  The study also noted that a broth-based soup with chunks of vegetables and a pureed vegetable soup are equally effect.  http://healthyeating.sfgate.com/lose-20-pounds-eating-soup-10424.htm


On last week, I made a full stock pot of vegetable soup that included cabbage, green beans, sweet peas, carrots, kidney beans, red beans, northern beans, crushed tomatoes, beef broth, and onions.  Needless to say, that was not a very good idea adding all of those different types of beans.  I really don’t believe that I will be doing that again anytime soon.
This past Friday night, I decided to make another full stock pot of vegetable soup.  This time I did not add the cabbage, nor did I add any beans whatsoever.  What I did include in this weeks’ soup was tomato juice, whole tomatoes, green beans, celery, green onions, carrots, beef broth, basil, and cayenne pepper.  At the rate that I have been eating it since I prepared it on Friday night, I very doubt that it will last me through Wednesday.
Along with eating the vegetable soup for the next few days, I will include some of the foods mentioned to eat while on the Cabbage Soup Seven (7) day diet plan.  As long as I lose a few pounds and cleanse the body I will be satisfied.
I still have not been able to return to my daily exercise schedule since returning from vacation a few weeks ago, so I really need to jumpstart that activity again within the next day or two.  At any rate, I am pleased with my focus once again in reaching my ultimate weight for my age and height.
Why Is a Healthy Weight Important?
Reaching and maintaining a healthy weight is important for overall health and can help you prevent and control many diseases and conditions. If you are overweight or obese, you are at higher risk of developing serious health problems, including heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, gallstones, breathing problems, and certain cancers. That is why maintaining a healthy weight is so important: It helps you lower your risk for developing these problems, helps you feel good about yourself, and gives you more energy to enjoy life.  https://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/educational/lose_wt/

  1. Maintaining a healthy body can be a challenge. It requires self discipline and control. Self discipline and control can not be gained from knowledge. Many individuals are educated and know what foods are unhealthy. They lack self discipline and control. Self discipline and control can only come from your inner self. You are the pilot.
