Enjoy Your Favorite Soup and Lose Weight

In between my blogs about walking for weight loss, I will be sharing with you some very useful information that you may use in your journey to achieving your desired body weight. It could be about a kind of food that you may eat, a kind of exercise that you may follow or a kind of weight loss supplement that you may take. Today, I want to talk about something that both our scientists and grandmothers will agree on which is the mysterious healing power of soup. And since it's wintertime, soup should always be a part of your meals because it can help you lose weight, it can warm you up, and it can boost your immunity to various infections. Let's take a closer look at two great things soup can do for you:

Soup can help you lose weight

The problem of obesity has increased in recent years and health authorities have always wondered about the real cause of this problem. Being overweight increases your risk of stroke, heart disease, colon cancer, arthritis and diabetes. However, you may not be part of this statistics if you eat a bowl of soup at least once a day. Studies show that people who eat a regular amount of soup experience dramatic weight loss than those who take in an equal amount of calories but don't eat soup. But make sure to prepare your own homemade soup because canned soup are loaded with salt and other chemicals that could be harmful to you body.

Soup can boost your immunity

Your soup is loaded with minerals responsible in strengthening your immune system. Just make sure that you don't boil your soup for a long period because boiling can destroy the nutrients found in the vegetables you are cooking. So cook your soup over low heat. When you cook your food this way, you are preserving its nutritional value and at the same time unleashing their therapeutic properties.
