Souping It Up

Hydration, nutrition, and endless possibilities.

There is nothing better than a nice bowl of hot soup, complete with vegetables and meat, to warm up the body and soul. However, a new diet has hit dieter’s radars that has proven that the soul warming liquid meal does more than just make you feel better when you’re sick; it’s also a great way to eat healthy as well as lose weight.

You might ask, “what’s the difference between the soup diet and the juice diet?” The answer is quite simple: the juice diet is great for vitamin and nutrient intake, but it also removes fiber and other important dietary ingredients during the juicing process. Souping, on the other hand, keeps all the good stuff from the veggies and meats.

Not only is it not just a great way to eat healthy, eating soup can help you hydrate without having to drink water separately. Soup contains a significant amount of water within the meal, and this not only helps rehydrate, but helps you feel fuller. You can eat the same amount of calories but soup will help you feel fuller compared to solid (non-soup) foods. In other words, adding soup to your diet on a regular basis can help you lose those extra pounds.

Soups are a healthy and delicious way to consume our foods that also create a balance between heavier foods. Moreover, the options are limitless when it comes to adding it to your daily diet without having to fork over hundreds of dollars a week. So, why not try a bowl today?
