Fat-Burning Detox Soups

You’ll find many fat-burning detox soups if you google detox or weight loss soup. These options are popular for weight loss because they work. Before you get too excited, they only work in the short run and aren’t sustainable for long. Even though these detox soups may not be the solution for long-term weight loss, there is a place for them in your diet. Studies show that people who eat soup regularly often weigh less.

One of the best-known detox soups is cabbage soup.

The cabbage soup diet is a seven-day plan for jump-starting a long-term weight loss program. You consume the soup daily and include other authorized foods. You can eat unlimited soup and fruit except bananas on the first day. On the second day, eat leafy greens and even a baked potato. You can’t have potatoes on the third day but can have any other fruit or vegetable. More food choices in limited amounts continue until the diet ends. The soup is relatively nutritious, although many variations may not be. It contains onions, green pepper, tomatoes, celery, cabbage, carrots, mushrooms, bouillon cubes, and water.

The vegetable bean detox soup also contains healthy ingredients.

The list of ingredients for Dr. Greger’s Champion vegetable bean detox soup is more extensive. It contains onions, celery, salt-free vegetable broth, mushrooms, bell peppers, chili peppers, garlic, tomato paste, chili powder, turmeric, diced tomatoes, pinto beans, corn, and smoked paprika. In this version of the bean detox soup, you eat two bowls daily and all the unprocessed fruits and vegetables you want. The soup combined with the fruits and vegetables fills you, contains fibers and nutrients, and doesn’t add many calories. This soup diet is more sustainable than many detox soups.

Another short-term diet that’s not sustainable is the Sacred Heart soup diet.

Promoters say the Sacred Heart Medical Center developed the diet to prepare obese patients for surgery. There are no records of any Sacred Heart Medical Center using it. You may shed quite a few pounds when you follow it for a week, but that weight often returns. It may have other benefits similar to fasting. While the recipes vary, most contain chicken or beef broth, Beef or chicken broth, stewed tomatoes, carrots, green beans, green onions, celery, and green bell peppers. The rest of the diet is similar to the cabbage diet.

  • Eating soup may help you lose weight. Soup takes longer to eat. That gives your stomach a chance to signal to the brain that it’s full. Soup also tends to have more water and fewer calories than solid food.
  • One reason soup may help detox the body is it usually doesn’t contain offenders like sugar, artificial sweeteners, or highly processed white flour. Broth options don’t contain substances some people don’t tolerate well, like lactose or gluten.
  • The extra fluid you intake when you consume detox soup with a meal can help flush out toxins. Adding spices like turmeric, which are anti-inflammatory, can also protect your body.
  • Make soup ahead and freeze them. Detox soups aren’t creamy or contain potatoes, so they should freeze well. After a while, you’ll have enough to create variety and can enjoy including healthy detox soup every night.
