Secrets to Reducing Calorie Soup
The body weight directly depends on the nutritional value of the soups consumed.
Nutritionists have calculated that a daily decrease in the energy value of a meal by only 100 kcal prevents the appearance of 1 kg of excess weight per year.
There are some simple rules, following which you can get rid of 500 grams of fat every week.
Cook from low-calorie foods
Many dishes will not lose their taste (or acquire them) if you change their ingredients.
For example, you can safely change the components:
- whole milk - for low-calorie;
- butter - on olive or any vegetable;
- fatty meat (sausage, ham) - for fish or lean veal;
- cereals - for vegetables and greens;
- mayonnaise - for natural yogurt;
- sugar - for fructose, etc.
Important! It is advisable not to use starch, potatoes, rice, flour, sugar, seasonings with a high salt content, canned foods when cooking.
Do not fry vegetables
Fried foods add at least 150 kcal to each soup. An alternative is raw or steamed vegetables.
Use meat without skin
The main source of carbohydrates and fats is contained not in the pulp of chicken, but in its skin. When cooking meat, the skin must be removed.
Discard fatty sauces
Mustard, lemon or homemade pesto sauce with garlic and basil, natural yogurt, balsamic vinegar, etc. will be a good alternative to mayonnaise, fat sour cream, and ketchup.
Drain the first broth
When cooking the broth, the first portion must be drained - it is full of antibiotics and chemicals that the animal consumed with the food. The second broth is healthier and cleaner.
Sour cream is a rather fatty product. It is best replaced with natural yogurt, mustard or homemade tomato paste.
Overweight is often the result of a person’s unwillingness to eat properly.
Replacing the high-calorie components in the first dishes with less nutritious, and large portions with small ones, you can quickly part with excess weight and find the desired shape.
It is not recommended to cook soups in a large saucepan - it is better to cook less, but more often: fresh food is more wholesome.
