We have become a large, amorphous American mass of calorie counters. The main objective in many cases is to jettison one thing or another, whether it be total calorie count, fats of all forms, or carbohydrates in an attempt to align yourself with gastrointestinally taxing diets like South Beach or Atkins. These are all viable ways to drop weight with varying degrees of consequences resulting from each. So for 2011, try dieting for the whole body with not just image, but health in mind.
It’s been documented that some people choose a “soup diet”, and what a time to begin eatinga regular regimine piping hot soup than the winter time, right? Well, most mass produced, low calorie and low fat soups have a hidden demon. Almost each one carries an alarming amount of sodium, in some cases almost covering an entire day in one 180 calorie swoop. For all the weight you might be cutting your veins, arteries, and capillaries are tightening up due to all of the salty, soupy goodness. Making soup at home allows you to moderate the sodium content to a degree.
