Wendy asks: What’s your favorite soup to eat when you’re trying to lose weight?


White Bean and Kale Soup - made with homemade (de-fatted) chicken broth; extremely delicious and versatile. I start with the basics: garlic, onions, bay leaves, crushed red pepper flakes, kale and whilte beans, chicken broth. From there, I usually add whatever veggies I have on hand to bulk up the soup into a full-fledged meal. This, along with a whole wheat roll makes the perfect lunch.

I can't think of a more healthy way of loosing weight than eating soup. I know everyone has a version so I am not going to give one here, I just want to tout the benefits of soup. I weighed 265 and I am only 5'4", not a good picture. I went to a nature path for other health reasons and this is what she said to me: "Eat soup, lots of soup, any kind of soup".
I took her serious. It took me almost a year to get the weight off, but it worked. I opted for some pretty unhealthy styles to start with because that is where my head was and the reason it took me a year to get it off, but I began to feel satisfied and not deprived and so as I went I began to par down the kinds of soup I made or I should say the kinds of ingredients I used. When I did put meats in the soup it was very trimmed of fats, skinless and skimmed when done. When I did want a cream soup I made the soup and added a tablespoon or two of cream into my 'own' bowl as did the rest of my family. Also, when creamed soup was made as in cauliflower, broccoli, etc, I pureed the vegies and added some cheese. Vegan cheese is great for creamed soups. I am still eating soup as it keeps me focused, thin and healthy.
I thought my family would complain, but even now (they're grown with kids) they eat soup. Next to chocolate, I think soup is a miracle food.
Thanks for letting me share. And.....EAT SOUP, LOTS OF SOUP, ANY KIND OF SOUP!!

Nuts help us melt body fat because they optimize hormone production, such as, testosterone and growth hormone. Research has shown that these healthy fats keep us feeling full for longer periods of time. Our hunger is satisfied throughout the entire day. Consuming slow digesting foods, such as nuts, helps us sustain high energy levels all day long.
