Slimming Food #2, and Day Three. . .

2. Vegetable Soup: Studies have shown that just by starting a meal with a fiber-rich bowl of broth-based veggie soup, you can reduce your total calorie intake by 20 percent. That's because this "veggie first course" helps to fill you up, so you wind up eating less at the main meal.

I agree with this completely. One veggie soup that I love is Roasted Butternut Squash Soup, which at 145 calories and 4.5g fat per cup makes it the perfect dish to curb my appetite! And it is super delicious.
