Soups are a great meal option when you’re trying to lose weight. With the help of a slow cooker, they’re easy to make and packed with nutritious ingredients that promote weight loss. Soups are also a great way to curb your appetite and prevent overeating. According to Health Magazine, “Although liquids empty from the stomach faster than solids, thicker liquids like soup are different. They actually tend to cause the stomach to expand a bit more, and remain in the stomach longer, so you feel more full, for a longer length of time.”
