If anyone actually cares, I answered this with my opinion such as it's worth on the nutrition forum.
SeisureAdvocate, I don't really think eating just soup would provide the nutrients you need. Although vegetables are very good, they would leave out some things, I'm sure, but of course, I'm not sure what kind of soups you'd be eating either.
Don't forget that fish, eggs, fruit and whole grains are also part of a balanced diet and, typically, those aren't found in soup. If you were going to incorporate those into breakfast, dessert and/or sufficient snacks, you might be able to pull it off, but I think this would become a very tiring diet, eventually.
I, too, love soup, but there's no way I could live on soup (especially canned, with all the sodium and other additives) for any length of time. Even when I make a large pot of homemade veggie soup, I get tired of it before it's gone.
In order to make it more healthy, I might suggest that you take a weekend and make a large pot of homemade soup and freeze it into individual portions so you can simply reheat it during the course, of the week. It would be much healthier than canned soup (without all the sodium and other additives) and you could still use your own veggies, herbs and spices. You could even make 2 different kinds at once - perhaps a chicken based one and maybe just a veggie or a beef based one, etc.
In my opinion, eating soup as a means of weight loss is likely not going to be sustainable. I am a firm believer that in order to lose weight and keep it off, you need to make a lifestyle change (not dieting) and eat a balanced diet. It can take time to get yourself used to eating a balanced diet, but in the long run, it will mostly likely work out better for you than dieting would.
Thanks everyone for the responses. From what I am gathering Canned soup is a no go. However, if I can find some simple healthy soup recipes this maybe ok to try.
I figured that was the case. I guess I was still wishful thinking. I feel like my time is so tight and it takes time to make healthy meals. Last night and the night before. I made myself Cucumber salad, with tomatoes and avocado. Then add a bit of seasoning, sunflower seeds and a small bit of cheese which is my down fall LOL. Anyhow thanks for the help.
