By using a vegetable soup diet you can lose weight and load up on nutrients.
You can choose to do an exclusive vegetable soup diet, or you can simply replace a few of your meals. However, there are a keep a few things in mind.
Purchasing canned vegetable soup from the store is not a good way to approach a true vegetable soup diet. The sodium content is very high and the vegetable content is low.
Standard vegetable soup diet recipes tend to involve adding a lot of salt to the mix causing the broth to once again contain a high level of sodium. And many vegetable soup diet recipes call for potato’s which may not help with your goal is to lose.
For the vegetable soup diet, use a food processor and/or juicer. If you use a juicer, what happens is you get a puree juice from the vegetables, and you also get the left over “pulp” as well. This makes it perfect for a vegetable soup diet. You get both the broth and leftover vegetable chunks at the same time.
Of course for your vegetable soup diet you can also add your own cut up fresh vegetables. A tomato soup done this way with fresh broccoli and bits of green pepper is great for the vegetable soup diet. You can also add in some fresh herbs or spices and you have a very unique, tasty, and filling vegetable soup diet that you’d never find in a can.
Before starting any diet, ask your doctor.
