Way back when, the Cabbage Soup Diet was a fad for a while. Now, there’s a diet trend called “souping” that can help you lose weight without feeling like you’re hungry all of the time. In fact, souping is one of the fastest ways for women over 50 to lose weight.

There are several different ways women can use soup to lose weight. For example, you can eat soup for every meal or just replace one meal daily with a variety of soup. Learn more about incorporating soup into your New Year’s diet plan, plus the soup recipe created by Dr. Michael Greger and nine home-delivery meal services that offer soup.

How does souping for weight-loss work?

“The water in soups adds volume, which fills you up,” Shannon Weston, nutritionist supervisor for the Nourish Program at the University of Texas School of Public Health in Houston, tells AARP. “That combination of food and water slows gastric emptying, which increases satiety and leaves you feeling full.”

Dawn Jackson Blatner, a Chicago-based registered dietitian and nutritionist and author of The Flexitarian Diet, says souping can be a good way to kickstart healthy eating habits, as long as you’re getting 1,200 calories daily (1,500 for men). “Psychologically it gives you a clean-slate vibe,” she explains. “You realize you were able to get full eating soup, so maybe you don’t need that ice cream after all.”

Dr. Michael Greger’s weight-loss soup recipe: serves 8

According to Michael Greger, MD, author of How Not to Die: Discover the Foods Scientifically Proven to Prevent and Reverse Disease, his Champion Vegetable Bean Soup recipe is ideal for “…beginners, anyone who struggles with portion control, or anyone who’s just really busy.”

The soup is chock full of vegetables, hearty, and fairly easy to make! First, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 2 red onions, chopped
  • 1 cup minced celery
  • 6-8 cups salt-free vegetable broth
  • 4-6 cups chopped mushrooms
  • 2 red bell peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 1-2 small hot chili peppers, seeded and finely minced (optional)
  • 2 zucchinis, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 6 Tbsp. jarred tomato paste
  • 4 Tbsp. chili powder, to taste (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp. ground turmeric or 1 1/2-inch piece fresh turmeric, grated
  • 2 (14.5 oz.) cans salt-free diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 2 (15.5 oz.) cans pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups corn kernels
  • 4-6 tsp. your favorite spice blend
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika

Start by cooking the onion and celery in four cups of the broth until soft (about five minutes). Then, add the mushrooms, bell pepper, chili, zucchini, and garlic until soft, stirring occasionally (about 10 minutes). Next, incorporate the tomato paste, chili powder, and turmeric, then stir in the tomatoes, beans, and remaining broth and bring to a simmer for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. If the broth is thicker than you’d like, add more broth. Finally, stir in the corn, spice blend, and paprika and serve hot (2.5 cups is a serving!)
