To sit and snuggle with a warm bowl of soup, and hear the sound of rains against our window-panes is one of our most favourite 'monsoon memories'. Soups are warm, soothing, healing and if made right, they could also promote weight loss! Yes, you heard us! The trend of 'souping' has become a sensation in the world of weight loss and fitness. Souping gives you enough room to experiment; you can put healthy meat, veggies, and grains of many kinds. Unlike juicing, it does not cost you healthy fibres that are so essential for weight loss. Since the water content in soup is so high, they help fill you up, without toppling your calorie count.
Here are some high-protein soups you may include in your weight loss diet. Protein helps induce satiety; if you feel full, you would naturally binge less. Protein also helps regulate the hunger hormone ghrelin, which further helps prevent cravings. Protein also helps build muscles and promote muscle recovery after a gruelling workout.
