How to Lose 20 Pounds by Eating Soup
The diet industry is exploding with fad diets, where you might eat only one kind of food, such as soup, or limit yourself to “detox” beverages to lose weight fast. When you want to drop 20 pounds, a quick fix may look appealing, especially with all those “before” and “after” photos to wow you. But the truth is, while you may lose weight on a fad diet, the odds are good that you’ll gain it back. You might even gain back more than you originally lost. However, some foods that make up fad diets, such as soup, may be beneficial when used as part of a healthy weight-loss regimen.

Recommendations for Losing 20 Pounds
You didn’t put on 20 pounds overnight. In fact, the average American gains about a pound annually during the fall and winter seasons, and then doesn’t take it off during the spring and summer. The best way to lose 20 pounds and keep it off is to go about it methodically -- at a rate of 1 to 2 pounds a week. In this way, you could lose 20 pounds in two to five months. Making a switch to a whole-foods diet – fresh fruits and vegetables, lean protein, whole grains, legumes and healthy fats – will not only help you shed those pounds, but will also provide the nutrition that fad diets don’t offer. Whole-foods diets, for example, tend to be rich in protein and fiber, two nutrients associated with satiety and weight management. This kind of diet – it's actually more of a lifestyle change – is also sustainable over a lifetime, meaning you’re likely to keep up with it instead of returning to unhealthy eating after you reach your goal weight.
The standard recommendation for weight loss is to create a calorie deficit of 3,500 calories a week to lose 1 pound and 7,000 calories to drop 2 pounds. That means if you’re currently eating 2,500 calories a day, you would reduce that number to 2,000 or 1,500. This is merely a goal to help you plan your regimen, however; weight loss will vary with the individual. Soup is a nutritious food that can help you make a daily calorie reduction.
Eating Soup for Weight Loss
Maybe you usually turn down a cup of soup before a meal, thinking it’s too much food. But in fact, some research suggests that eating low-calorie soups before your meal can assist your weight-loss efforts. In a study published in the journal Appetite in 2007, 60 normal-weight adults received a “pre-load” of low-calorie soup before lunch for five weeks. After they consumed the soup, they were served their main meal. In the group that ate their soup first, researchers found that the subjects consumed 20 percent fewer calories at that meal -- and because the soup was low-calorie, they reduced their caloric intake overall. The conclusion was that adding soup to your diet can be an effective means of curbing calories. Having soup before your meal may also force you to slow down – another technique shown to reduce overall energy intake.
Try this technique for a week – consume a serving of low-calorie soup before lunch or dinner and cut back on your main meal accordingly. For example, a cup of vegetable beef soup provides about 40 calories. If you have soup before dinner for a week and forgo a large, plain baked potato -- which is 290 calories -- you save 1,750 calories, or half a pound of body weight. Having soup instead of a serving of French fries nets you even bigger savings of 3,150 calories, or almost a full pound of weight.
Which Soups to Choose?
Not all soups offer the same benefits. In the Appetite study, participants ate low-calorie soups of broth and vegetables; chunky vegetables; chunky-pureed vegetables or pureed vegetables; all had the same calorie-reduction benefits. But in contrast, cream-based soups or those loaded with cheese or pasta can add significant calories to your regimen. A cup of broccoli cheddar soup at one popular chain, for example, has 220 calories. Instead, opt for vegetable-based soups made from clear vegetable broth or from clear chicken or beef broth. At the same restaurant chain, a cup of vegetable soup with pesto has 90 calories.
Soups can make excellent main-dish meals; try swapping out higher calorie pasta dishes or meat-and-potatoes meals for a main-dish soup one or two nights a week. When making bean soups, puree some of the cooked soup and add it back to the pot to give the dish a rich, velvety texture without the extra calories of cream or cheese. Serve your soups with a side salad instead of bread.
Cutting calories by eating soup can help you shed pounds -- but unless you also incorporate regular exercise into your regimen -- you are likely to gain back the weight you lose, according to Harvard Medical School. Exercise not only helps curb your appetite, it also boosts your resting metabolism rate so you burn more calories and shed more fat. Standard guidelines suggest at least 150 minutes of endurance or aerobic exercise a week, plus strength training two or more days a week to build and maintain muscle.

How To Lose Up To 10 lbs In A Single Week
Considering the Cabbage Soup Diet? …You’ve come to the right place!!
Hi, and welcome to my site! I have gathered lots of great Cabbage Soup Diet information for you.
For those of you who want a “quick start” here are a few links to other pages on my site. For the rest of you, scroll down to get started!

If you have a special occasion coming up or you simply need to lose weight fast, the Cabbage Soup Diet may be just what you need.
Although not suitable for long-term weight loss, the Cabbage Soup Diet is a low-fat, high-fiber diet that will help you get into shape fast before you embark on a more moderate long-term eating plan.
Do you have questions about the Cabbage Soup Diet? There’s a good chance you’ll find your answer on my Cabbage Soup Frequently Asked Questions page.
Pros and Cons of the Cabbage Soup Diet
Pros: You’ll lose weight fast, and for the week, you can eat as much of the foods listed in the program as you want. Although the diet is only for seven days (and shouldn’t be followed for longer), it provides a great “kick-start” for a more moderate diet.
Cons: Some people find the soup bland. Others report feeling light-headed, weak, and have suffered from decreased concentration (although I hear that many people think the diet is worth the effort anyway, since they lose so much weight!).
What the Cabbage Soup Diet is NOT
The Cabbage Soup Diet is sometimes referred to as the “Mayo Clinic Diet,” the “Sacred Heart Hospital Diet,” and by many other names. Interestingly, this diet is not affiliated with either the Mayo Clinic or the Sacred Heart Hospital system.
Number 1 Reason why the Cabbage Soup Diet Fails
As mentioned, the soup can tend to get a bit bland, especially since you are eating it several time a day….every day for a week. For this reason alone, a lot of people drop the diet.
To liven things up a bit, I came up with a couple different spice packs that can be added to your soup recipe. These packs are premeasured, all that you have to do is to add one of pack per batch of your cabbage soup. The soup comes out very tasty – and for that reason it helps you stay on your diet. Click here to find out more about my spice packs.
The Problem With Most “Mainstream” Diets
Most diets – especially “mainstream” diets, and those recommended by major medical institutions – work slowly but surely, resulting in around 1 pound of weight loss per week.
This “slow and steady” way to lose weight is certainly healthy, but suffers from one major flaw: most people get discouraged and quit whatever diet they are on if they don’t see results quickly. This is how the Cabbage Soup Diet can be your savior and catalyst into a more long term solution.
Seven Keys to Success
- Follow the diet to the letter!
- Drink at least 4 glasses of water per day (or more!).
- Remember – it is only seven days long!
- Complement the diet with a quality daily multi-vitamin.
- Print information from this site and refer to it daily (especially the 7 Day Plan!).
- Eat plenty of soup – the more you eat, the more you should lose! Do not try to starve yourself or you’ll probably cheat (this is what we don’t want).
- Add my spice pack to liven up the soup to add variety and make it taste great. 🙂
Sometimes we all need to get away and recharge our batteries!

Stick With The Cabbage Soup Diet For 7 Days…And Look Amazing Later, Too!

'The Soup Cleanse,' a new cookbook, helps you lose weight fast
Angela Blatteis and Vivienne Vella, authors of “The Soup Cleanse.”
Souping is the new juicing.
That’s the piping-hot claim made in a new cookbook that swears you can lose five pounds in five days by sipping vegetable-based soups.
“Soup is food. It’s incredibly satiating, very nutrient- and vitamin-rich,” says Angela Blatteis, co-author of “The Soup Cleanse: A Revolutionary Detox of Nourishing Soups and Healing Broths from the Founders of Soupure.”
Blatteis is the co-founder (with Vivienne Vella) of Soupure, a Los Angeles-based soup company that will begin shipping nationwide in February.
“Juice was not designed to be a meal — you’re flooding your body with sugar,” Blatteis adds, fed up with fruit juice cleanses that she says left her starving and jittery.
She may be on to something.
“The allure of souping continues to grow,” says Dr. Nada Milosavljevic, director of the Integrative Health Program at Massachusetts General Hospital. “Not only do the herbs and spices have a host of health benefits, but the vegetable pulp contains fiber which can increase our sense of satiety.
“Further, the lower sugar content of vegetable- and nut-based soups is another advantage,” the doctor adds.
Pressing juice removes the fibers and pulps of fruits that are meant to be consumed, while soup generally packs more protein and fewer carbs than a green juice and is less likely to cause blood sugar levels to soar or plummet.
“The Soup Cleanse” diet packs about 1,200 calories a day, along with 60 different nutrients and a whopping 30 grams of fiber.
The cleanse is designed to combat inflammation, heart disease, weight gain, fatigue and joint pain while promoting better-looking skin, hair, and reduced stress and improved memory. Each recipe lacks gut-busting foods like gluten, dairy, corn, and processed soy and sugar.
The cleanses feature a combination of seven different soups, smoothies and drinks packed with veggies, spices and ginger that should be consumed within an hour of each other. If you’re still hungry, Blatteis says you can add a handful of whole foods like almonds, celery sticks, or cucumbers to snack on.
A-listers like Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston have tried soup cleanses. And actor Michael Chiklis, an investor in Soupure, says he did a soup cleanse to lose weight for FX’s “American Horror Story: Freak Show.”
“You don’t feel deprived at all,” Chiklis, who says he lost 14 pounds in two weeks while souping, tells the Daily News.
“You’re just eating really clean, good food that’s delicious,” he adds.
To give the diet a shot, try this one-day soup cleanse.

1. Morning Starter:
Start your day with 16-ounces of room temperature water with lemon to flush out toxins.
Prepare your body for the day with hot broth such as miso, which is packed with enzymes and protein, or roasted vegetable, chicken or beef. If you don’t feel like making your own, Blatteis recommends picking one up at Brodo (200 First Ave.) in the East Village, a sipping broth takeout window that slings cups of Organic Chicken broth ($5.50 for 10 oz.) or Gingered Grass-Fed Beef broth ($6.50 for 10 oz.).
3. Breakfast or post-workout:
Sip a cold smoothie comprised of anti-inflationary ingredients such as nut milks, dried fruits like apricots and dates, chia seeds or dandelion tea. Here’s one example.
1 small (5.6-ounce) can coconut milk, chilled overnight
Pumpkin Miso Soup
Cauliflower Lemongrass Soup
Pumpkin Miso Soup (L.) and Cauliflower Lemongrass (R.).
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For best results, place the bowl of an upright mixer or medium mixing bowl in the freezer for 5 minutes. Skim the thick heavy cream off the top of the coconut milk and add to the chilled bowl. Add the vanilla and whip with a mixer or whisk until the milk thickens and forms semi-stiff peaks.
4. Hot Lunch:
Soups like cauliflower lemongrass are creamy in texture and help you feel fuller, longer. It’s packed with antioxidants and B vitamins that are anti-inflammatory.
1 (1½-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and coarsely chopped 4 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
1 medium shallot, coarsely chopped (about ¼ cup)
1 to 2 Thai chilies, stems removed and halved
2 stalks lemongrass, tough outer leaves removed, bottom trimmed, and cut into 3-inch pieces
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
6 cups Chicken Broth, Roasted Vegetable Broth, or store-bought low-sodium
2 fresh kaffir lime leaves, torn
1½-pound head of cauliflower, stem removed and cut into quarter-sized florets
8 ounces (about 1 cup) cherry tomatoes, halved, 1 teaspoon fresh-squeezed lime juice
¾ teaspoon coconut sugar, plus more to taste
8 leaves Thai basil, sliced
Salt and pepper, to taste
Place the ginger, garlic, shallot, Thai chilies, and lemongrass in a food processor or blender and pulse until the mixture has a coarse texture. Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. Add the mixture from the blender. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture releases some of its moisture and becomes aromatic. Do not brown. Pour in the chicken broth and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Add the kaffir lime leaves and simmer for 15 minutes.
5. Chilled snack:
Have a cup of cold soup for a quick boost. Try pineapple, papaya and fennel cold soup for a a dose of vitamins A and C, as well as antioxidants.
1 large fennel bulb, quartered

Cauliflower Lemongrass Soup
Gwyneth Paltrow raved about souping on her lifestyle blog Goop.
1 medium ripe pineapple (2 to 2 1/2 cups), skinned and sliced
1 unripe papaya (1/4 to 1/2 cup), seeded, skinned and sliced
1 cup organic and raw coconut water, not from concentrate
1 1/4 teaspoons fresh lime juice
1 1/4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon lime zest
Pinch sea salt, to taste
Remove the fronds from the fennel bulb. Add all the ingredients to a blender, except the lime zest, 1 cup coconut water, and salt. Blend on high until smooth, one to two minutes. Add the lime zest, coconut water, and salt to taste and combine on low.
6. Hot Dinner:
The Miso, kombu and shiitake mushrooms used in this Pumpkin Miso Soup recipe help fight disease and infection. The kabocha pumpkin — an Asian variety of winter squash — is packed with fiber and the inflammation-fighting ginger helps your circulatory and respiratory systems.
3 cups peeled and sliced kabocha pumpkin (from 1 medium pumpkin)
1 (2-to-4-inch) piece of kombu
½ cup shiitake mushroom caps, cut into ½-inch slices
3 teaspoons low-sodium tamari
1 tablespoon minced ginger
1 tablespoon coconut sugar
2 tablespoons miso paste, preferably white or yellow
Wrap the pumpkin in foil and bake until tender, about 40 minutes. Set aside. Make kombu broth by adding 3½ cups water to a small saucepan and heating it over medium-low heat. When it comes to a gentle simmer, add the kombu. Allow the broth to simmer gently for 1 hour. Remove from heat and strain out the kombu into a measuring cup. If any water has evaporated, add more so there are 3½ cups. Set aside. Add the shiitake mushrooms to a saucepan with the tamari and ¼ cup water and cook over medium-low heat (do not boil) for 1 hour. Add more water if necessary to keep the mushrooms from burning. Set aside.
Have a mug of Lemon Ginger Tea or any herbal tea.
