Can sipping on soup help you to lose weight? Read on to find out what science (and the founder of Soup Crush) has to say about soup recipes to lose weight.
Soup & Easy Weight Loss
One of the inspirations for starting this blog came from a gal I was watching on Instagram stories. She talked about a whole month where she craved only soup (I guess it was cold?). Anyway, after one month of eating soup for lunch (and sometimes dinner) she had inadvertently lost weight. Don’t you just love it when you lose weight by accident?
That idea turned a light bulb on for me that would eventually become the creation of Soup Crush – to inspire people to eat more soup for better overall health (and a little weight loss, too). You see, soup is rarely an unhealthy choice. Most soups (and all the recipes on this site) are filled with wholesome ingredients – mostly veggies, water and the odd dash of protein. There’s also lots of healthy spices that reduce inflammation (like turmeric) and add to the overall enjoyment of sipping on a bowl of hot, steamy goodness.
So, can you lose weight eating soup?
Well, if those soups contain healthy broths, lots of veggies and clean protein (as my recipes do) then yes! You can lose weight eating soup as long as it’s in place of less healthier food choices. In fact, studies have shown that people feel more full after eating smooth soup (think creamy cauliflower soup) than chunky soups or even a full meal! The idea here is to get the stomach feeling full-up at the beginning of a meal so that you’re inclined to eat less overall.
Anyway, I think the key takeaway here is that consuming more water and veggies is definitely good for losing weight, and what better way to do that then to make them into a bowl of soup. And on that note, here’s three of my all time favorite soup recipes to lose weight. They’re all simple to make and tastes delicious.
