  • Lose up to 7lbs in 7 days by enjoying nourishing and delicious soup recipes

    22 September 2014

    When Flat Tummy Club founder Kate Adams swapped her usual lunchtime sandwich for a bowl of soup, she lost 7lbs in 7 days – without feeling hungry. Four years later, and 2.5 stone lighter, and Kate is sharing her slimming soup secrets with us.

    Together with Nicole Pisani, chef at Yottam Ottolenghi‘s Soho restaurant NOPI, Kate has created The Magic Soup Diet e-book, designed to help you lose weight easily and healthily.

    Kate explains that not only does eating more soup help you lose weight, but it’s also a great way to pack more nutrients into your diet, while enjoying varied, delicious and comforting food. In fact research shows that eating soup is more filling than eating the same foods ‘dry’ since soup takes up more room in your stomach.

    Inspired by the women of Mauritius who eat ‘magic soup’ after giving birth to help them lose weight, The Magic Soup Diet provides entire menus for 7 full days plus a month of soup recipes. The best part? You won?t feel hungry!

    So if you want to lose weight in a week while eating delicious food, read our round-up of the seven main principles of The Magic Soup Diet.

    The first principle? Start the day as you mean to go on! Kate recommends starting your day with a cup of herbal tea or hot water and lemon, followed by complex carbs like oats or protein-packed eggs for breakfast.

    ‘Your metabolism is strongest in the morning and you can help fire it up by feeding it with a healthy breakfast. You can even eat a bit more in the morning and not worry about it as you burn off the calories more quickly.’ We like the sound of that!
