I’ve been putting on quite a bit of weight around the waist and tummy. Thanks to overeating and not exercising at all. But I’m not too concern about those extra inches. If I really want to, I can actually lose them in days.
I skip dinner for a couple of days and just drink soup. No rice, no other dishes. Just clear soup with some vegetables and maybe a bit of meat. It kills the hunger pangs and I get some nutrition at the same time. Easy peasy.
In fact, if you do a seach on the Net, you should even come across a cabbage soup diet, which is a fat-burning soup that contains negligible calories. This is actually a fad diet designed for short-term weight-loss without long-term commitments. Apparently, the more soup you eat the more weight you should lose. However, it is a seven days program which requires the dieter to following a diet plan. And this doesn’t work for me because I’ve no discipline whatsoever to follow a strict diet. Moreover, too much cabbage can cause uncontrollable fatulence, which we already already know is a major social challenge.
So I just do it my way by making my own soup usually with a tasty broth using chicken, pork ribs and lately, the Japanese konbu (seaweed). I then add in some veggie like carrots and celeries, or corn and carrot, or potatoes, onions, carrots, tomatoes. It depends on my fancy. Sometimes I even make fish soup with fish meat and vegetables like tomatoes, spring onion and ginger.
And by exercising a little control and drinking these homemade soups for a few evenings, those dreaded inches around my tummy and waistline will be reduced. Nothing too extreme or difficult.
