I love this book. I bought it a while ago and finally got around to looking at it. It is NOT a fad diet book. It's a method which can help you curb your calorie intake (the only way to actually lose weight--lower your calorie intake! It's physics, folks!), without having to do this or that or the other thing and without having to count calories. I'm buying the ingredients & making my first batches of soup tomorrow, and am very much looking forward to it. It's simple, clear and makes sense to me.

[[ASIN:B00BRRZQC2 Soup Diet Cookbook: 35 Delicious Soups And Smoothies to Help You Lose Weight Naturally Without Hunger (How To Cook Healthy in a Hurry)
This is not a fad diet book. Very good, sound advice is given on how to sensibly and safely lose weight. You must eat less, exercise more, reduce stress and sleep longer. She gives you very good ways to do this. Well researched. Recipes are for ingredients that I can even obtain here just 30 miles from the Mexican border in the southwest. The advise on stress reduction is very good and will even help me who is caretaker to two people with some brain damage.

We are always on the lookout for a new soup recipe because my hubby is allergic to yeast and commercial soups (along with many other products) are full of yeast. We enjoy making a meal of soup a couple of times per week using a collection of recipes that are yeast free. We have one blueberry bush that is giving us up to a dozen gallons of frozen blueberries per year, so we have been making blueberry smoothies with various other ingredients. Both soup and smoothies are very filling and good for you, so now if are more aware of the health benefits of something we already enjoy eating; we will be making more soup. We have tried two of the soup recipes and one smoothie from this book and both were excellent. It really is a guide to a healthy lifestyle and way to lose weight over time using sensible eating techniques with exercise. We will be making more of the soup recipes from this book in the future.

What exactly is"Belly Fat"? I thought I knew, but the answer is a lot more involved than I expected. Belly fat is a lot more sneaky than I imagined.

"The Soup Diet Cookbook" will help you, not only understand, but rid your body of this devious and dangerous invader.

I found the explanation on how the soup works to curb your appetite very interesting. The author writes in a very understandable manner.

You'll find menu selections giving you meal suggestions to help speed up your weight loss. You can choose one main item, with two side items, from a list of items. These selections are very do-able.

The soup recipe I made tasted wonderful. I can't wait to try more of them!

I'm not going to lie, I've been on a lot of different diets in my life. I'd like to say it's because I'm testing them out and, in fact, I kind of am, even though I also get tired of them and quickly move on to the next.

The reality of it is, not every diet is a fad, though a lot of them are. One diet that is definitely not a fad is the Soup Diet that Helen Cassidy Page introduces in: "The Soup Diet Cookbook: How To Lose Belly Fat With The Soup Secret; 30 Delicious Soup Recipes and Smoothies to Lose Weight Naturally Without Hunger, and The Mix and Match Quick Start Weight Loss Plan"

Page lays out a practical plan that anyone can follow to realistically lose weight and be healthier by eating ... you guessed it, soup!

Not only does she give you 30 soup recipes, she outlines a "Four Pronged Plan" that goes beyond just simple instructions, but gives the reader something of substance that they can follow to move towards losing weight naturally.

Personally, I need a specific, step-by-step plan for most things, especially when it comes to a diet.

Overall, everything in "The Soup Diet Cookbook" is very straightforward, easy to follow and she gives sound advice on how to lose weight quickly while staying healthy.

I can't wait to try the Creamy Vegetable Chowder soup!

Soup really is one of the best diet foods- it makes you feel extremely full, it can be super nutritious, and it's low in calories in relation to most foods. I'm always on the lookout for new soup recipes, and this book has a bunch of them.

It's a basic book and probably useful for someone who has little knowledge of the subject. I've been using the Vitamix for years and have a lot of experience. I did glean some useful information/recipes and most of all, anything I read on the subject of healthy lifestyle and eating is motivation for me. Motivation is everything. Without it you can have a library of recipe and health books and never lose a pound.

I was looking for soup recipes when I stumbled at this book. But after reading it I was just blown away, this is not just another recipe book it’s a complete guide for weight loss. It explains how the soup diet works; it touches upon the exercise part as well. And most importantly the soups are yummy I have tried a few.

I was intrigued by the the title of this book - after all how does eating soup help you to lose belly fat? Well after reading these recipes (and trying some of them) I am blown away. These are not only some of the most delicious soup recipes I have ever seen, but using them to lose weight is a real bonus. In addition to the recipes, the author gives some very valuable information that will inspire you to try them - and watch the pounds melt away as you enjoy them.
Thanks for a great book. I'm going to try ALL the recipes, and enjoy them as I lose weight.

I absolutely love this book. The author's style is relaxed and, at times, humorous. It made this book a joy to read.

It begins by giving you some information regarding the current obesity epidemic and some of it's causes. This includes a chapter on the differences of subcutaneous fat and visceral fat; and why visceral fat is so dangerous.

There is also a detailed 'Four Pronged Soup Diet Cookbook Plan' to aid you in your mission to lose belly fat. This plan is extremely reasonable and easily doable.

Perhaps what I like most about this book is that it isn't just a bunch of soup and smoothie recipes. It's also a detailed plan, backed by science. The first half of the book is dedicated to telling you how to do the diet, what to expect and how our bodies work. The second part is where you will find all of the delicious, nutritious and satisfying recipes.

One of my favorite parts of this book (aside from the yummy recipes) is the section on "Diet Truths". These are things that most everybody knows, yet somehow we seem to forget. They include non-nonsense statements such as "All diets work if you stick to them. No diet works if you give up." and "Weight doesn't fall off our hips overnight." I believe that every dieter should print or write this page up and put copies on their refrigerator, bathroom mirror and even in their office.

You will love this book. There is much to gain from it, and that doesn't include extra pounds!
