Eating a fibre-rich diet helps weight weight lost or keep you at your healthy body size. Fibre has the ability to create a sense of satiety after meals, aka fullness, without the calories of processed or high animal-based meals.
An easy way to incorporate more fibre with low calorie intake is to eat vegetable soup, especially great in the colder winter months.
Here is a simple recipe to get you going.
