Soup diets are designed to help people lose weight in a short period of time. Instead of just one centralized soup diet, however, there are several different types of soup diets that are distinguished by the type of soup being consumed. According to Healthline, there are six main soup diets, one of which is known as the chicken noodle soup diet. This soup diet is a 7-day diet plan that involves eating chicken noodle soup for every meal (except breakfast).

In the morning, you can eat low-calorie foods like yogurt, whole grain cereal, or fresh fruit for breakfast. However, the diet recommends only eating small, frequent portions of chicken noodle soup throughout the rest of the day. The is meant to reduce food cravings and help keep you feeling full longer. Since the soup is low-calorie, low-carb, and mostly made with chicken and vegetables, it should help keep you nourished and satiated.

Eating chicken noodle soup and other liquid-based foods may aid weight loss and help motivate people to make better long-term diet and lifestyle changes. However, this diet is ultimately not sustainable. Since the chicken noodle soup diet is only a week long, it won't help you lose weight over time. In fact, it may even lead to yo-yo dieting. According to Livestrong, yo-yo dieting is a term that refers to the pattern of losing weight, regaining it, and then dieting again.

Engaging in yo-yo dieting is not recommended and can even result in further health complications in the future, like an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. That's why it's important to talk to your doctor before starting any short-term diet plan. If you're looking for a more efficient way to lose weight in the long term, experts recommend engaging in regular exercise and limiting your overall caloric intake by maintaining a healthy and well-balanced diet.
