How Soup Can Help You Lose Weight and Keep it Off!
Losing and maintaining a healthy weight is an on-going battle for many. The worst part is hunger! Imagine if there was a way to lose weight and keep it off and never be hungry again?
Well there is and it is a dieters best kept secret until now and that is eating soup every day! I don’t mean eating the same soup every day as that would be nutritionally not healthy and very boring!
The soup secret is simply this: if you eat the food and drink the water, you will feel full for a couple of hours before hunger kicks in. But if you blend the food with the water to make soup you will stay hunger-free for much longer, and less likely to snack through the afternoon.
Scientists have used ultrasound and MRI scans of people's stomachs to investigate what happens after eating solid-food-plus-water meals compared with the same food made into soup with some very surprising results.
This is what they found out: after you eat a meal, the pyloric sphincter valve at the bottom of your stomach holds food back so that the digestive juices can get to work. Water, however, passes straight through the sphincter to your intestines, so drinking water does not contribute to "filling you up".
When you eat the same meal as a soup, the whole mixture remains in the stomach, because the water and food are blended together. The scientists' scans confirm that the stomach stays fuller for longer, staving off those hunger pangs.
How wonderful is that! Simply by combining those same foods with water to make soup, you stay fuller a lot longer thus eliminating the need to eat those fattening snacks mid-afternoon.
