The soup.

"The concept of eating soup to lose weight has spanned decades, but experts say an all-soup diet lacks nutrients and is not sustainable. They do agree it can be smart to eat vegetable-packed soups for some meals though, as these are filling, nutrient-dense, and low in calories."

Health Benefits.

There are many variations of the soup diet. Each has different foods that are encouraged and foods that are limited or prohibited. Even though each plan is unique, there are certain trends among them.

One significant drawback of many soup-based weight loss programs is they do not include instructions regarding physical activity or a plan for transitioning to a long-term healthy eating program.

Things to avoid:

Day one: Fish day Have oily fish, like salmon, mackerel sardines or tuna, or shellfish, for two meals, with roasted Mediterranean veg, and green veg, like broccoli or spinach. As much soup as you want.
