First, it's worth pointing out as others have that this soup is "fat burning" not because of some magical ingredients that melt away the weight, but because it's so low calorie, that meals like this are basically calorie neutral.
When it comes to food, everything can be evaluated in 3 categories.
- Is it filling?
- Does it taste good?
- Is it low in calories?
Foods that are a "yes" in the above 3 are rare. A bowl of raw vegetables is filling and low in calories, but would be a bit bland. A cheesecake is filling and tastes good, but is high in calories.
This soup is the triple threat. Tastes great, very filling, and insanely low in calories. It's so low in calories it would almost be dangerous to only eat this everyday!
Now on to the soup itself, a couple notes:
Size: As others have mentioned the total made is enormous- I thought my large stock pot would be enough but had to split it into two. You need one of those huge pots, or two small ones.
Customizing: I decided to make tweaks right off the bat. As written it's probably fine.
That's the great thing about this soup- you can tweak it however you want. I added worcestershire, A1 sauce, and used diced tomatoes with green chiles. Spices included basil, salt, pepper, garlic and a few others. You can do whatever you want!
And going on from there, don't be afraid to add even low calorie things. Some sliced turkey kielbasa would still have this be an absolutely insanely low calorie dish, but add to the taste.
