5 Great Weight Watchers Soup Recipes That You Should Try

When trying to lose weight, Joel Harper, a celebrity trainer, suggests that you make soup for dinner. Studies show that soup is more filler for each calorie because it contains a fair amount of water. In fact, it will keep us full for a longer amount of time for each calorie consumed compared to standard “dry” foods. This comes down to the fact that soup takes up more space in the stomach, turning off the “hungry” hormone sooner and for longer than salads would. Keep in mind that not just any soup works; some recipes will be high in calories. For the best results, try one of these Weight Watchers soup recipes, all of which are easy to make and made with different ingredients.
