In this August edition of the Foodwatch Newsletter I’m putting soup diets under the microscope.

I’ll tell you what works and what doesn’t and how to take advantage of soup to lose weight in a sustainable way. Don’t be fooled by all the hype you read or see on TV.

In addition to talking about soup there’s the Foodwatch Product of the month, August EatKit and a host of new articles on the Foodwatch website.

A. Energy density means the ratio of kilojoules/calories you get from a given weight or volume of a food. It's really how many kilojoules/calories you can fit into a mouthful!

The joy of soup

Once winter arrives, it’s a great time for soup. Whether you like pumpkin, vegetable and barley, minestrone, cream of celery, pea and ham or tomato, a bowl of soup is warming and nourishing on a cold winter’s day. Add a chunk of crusty bread and you have a complete meal that’s quick, easy and satisfying.

This includes after tooth extraction especially wisdom teeth, a broken jaw or facial injuries to areas such as the lips, cheeks or nose. It is also useful for anyone unable to chew and swallow properly due to dry mouth, mouth ulcers, mouth problems, braces, dental work or post-operatively.

While it might not feel like much at the time, as a nation Australians waste over $5.3 billion worth of food each year, according to a survey carried out by The Australia Institute.

Product review: Soup shortcut

Soup is one of my favourite winter meals. Thick and hearty, it's warming and satisfying. It's a key food if you want to lose some weight without going hungry.

The soup diet – can you lose weight on it?

Every winter or so, the soup diet reappears. One winter, it was part of the infamous "Kickstart Diet" made famous by a television current affairs program. Another winter a few years ago, it was big as the "Cabbage Soup Diet" - the only difference being that the soup contained lots of shredded cabbage.
