120 Calories Saved: How Vegetable Soup Can Boost Satiety and Control Calorie Intake

Vegetable soup has long been known for its ability to increase feelings of satiety and reduce calorie consumption. A recent study found that consuming vegetable soup before a meal led participants to consume 120 fewer calories than when they didn’t have soup. The hot temperature of the soup heats the brain’s “satiety point,” reducing appetite, while the dietary fiber in the soup contributes to feelings of fullness in the stomach and intestines, leading to prolonged satiety. Additionally, the liquids in the soup fill the stomach, reducing food consumption.

If you don’t feel like making vegetable soup, a simple alternative is to mix half a cup of crushed tomatoes with half a cup of boiling water, add ingredients such as garlic, sucralose, dill, and onion chips, and heat the mixture in the microwave for a satisfying pre-meal soup. Overall, consuming vegetable soup before a meal can lead to increased feelings of fullness and reduced calorie consumption, making it a beneficial addition to a healthy diet.
