The Soup Diet

Hat tip to SF rockstar Eva for this one

Apparently souping is the new juicing

Oh dear

Sure, eating soup is fine

As is having the odd veggie juice

>But when it turns into an all out diet

That promises weight loss and detoxing

Well then

It turns John into Angry John

The basis of the diet is having a load of soups throughout the day

They say the soups are strategically planned at certain times

To kick start your metabolism <–BS Alert ^^^

It’s coming from all angles here

Not sure if I can dodge all of it

You wanna know another way to kick start your metabolism?

Get of of bed!

Who knew actually moving would cause these soupers to burn more calories?

Like I said, there’s nothing wrong with soups

And they can help you get more veg in if you’re not getting enough

But I’ve saved the best part till now

You see the diet seems to be all about the magic of these special soups

Eaten at certain magical times of the day to help you

But then you read the small print

“Avoid all caffeine, alcohol, dairy products, red meat, refined sugar,

bread, artificial chemicals or processed foods if you can,

and aim to keep your lunch and dinner soups as varied as possible”

Now I wonder, 

Is it having soup that will give all the glorious weight shedding they promise

Or the fact these soupers will simply end up eating much, much less because



They fck’n can’t eat anything else

Yep, thankfully you’re a smart one and can see right through it

The other side is what happens after?

They’re either gonna keep living on soup and in fear of anything processed

Shh..Just don’t tell them soup is processed, even if it’s homemade

Or go back to their current normal

Which isn’t supporting the body they want

Or at least it’s contributing to how shitty they are feeling now

That’s why the best diet for you is the one where you first set up a baseline

A habit of eating that’s not restrcitive and you feel in control of

And brings you closer to the body and health you want

Once you have that

Then you can throw in some advanced stuff like I’ve been doing over the past while

At least then you have a better ‘normal’ to go back to

John ‘don’t make me angry’ O’C

P.S. My cravings are insane right now.

I knew the whole can’t have mindset was a killer

I just haven’t lived it for so long

I’d forgotten how hard it is

Walked past the cakes in Super Value yesterday eve

I literally wanted everyone of them

And now I can’t wait to be able to eat normally again

There is one plus side to this for me

I’ll fill you in tomorrow…
