Have You Heard About the Fat-Burning Soup Diet?
Yes, there’s a fat burning soup. It isn’t a magic trick, simply a mixture of various ingredients that help cleanse your body due to its depurative and diuretic properties.
Of course, the soup has to be accompanied by a healthy diet. If you follow this diet to the T, you will be able to lose a few pounds in a short amount of time. However, it has to be emphasized that this regimen is only meant for emergencies; carrying it out for more than seven days can do more harm than good.
However, it’s important that you follow a balanced diet and exercise regularly for long-term results.
Fat burning soup recipe
We’re going to introduce you to the recipe of this special soup that’s so good for you as long as you eat it within the context of a well-balanced wholesome diet. You can add extra spices if you’d like.
For example, the capsaicin in peppers can stimulate weight loss, according to scientific literature.
To make this effective fat burning soup, you will need the following:
- 6 large onions
- 2 medium peppers
- 1 handful of celery
- 6 medium tomatoes or one can of tomatoes
- Cabbage or kale
- A container of chicken broth
- A pinch of salt
Do the following:
- Firstly, boil a large pot of water
- In the meantime, wash and cut the vegetables
- Once the water begins to boil, add the vegetables to the water and cook them until they’re soft. You can store it the fridge so it lasts a week.
- You can eat it hot or cold (if you blend it)
How should it be eaten?
Once it is prepared, it is time to eat the soup. The diet lasts for seven days and the regimen for each day is as follows:
- Day 1: Eat the soup all day + fruit that is in season, as much as you want (except bananas). You can drink tea and coffee without sugar.
- 2: Eat the soup all day + as many vegetables as you’d like.
- 3: Eat the soup all day + as many fruits and vegetables as you’d like.
- 4: Eat the soup all day + bananas and skim milk (blended bananas, sweeten if you’d like).
- 5: Eat a bowl of soup + a pound of white meat (baked or grilled skinless chicken) + 6 medium tomatoes with oregano and salt.
- 6: Eat a bowl of soup + baked or grilled lean meat and as many boiled/steamed vegetables as you’d like (today is meat and vegetable day).
- 7: Eat a bowl of soup + whole grain rice with as many fruits and vegetables as you’d like.
You should consult a medical professional before undertaking this diet as it’s quite restrictive diet and could be counterproductive.
