STAGE ONE RECIPE
Here is the recipe for the kick start diet soup:
One packet of powdered vegetable, chicken or beef soup mix (could also substitute with stock or consumme)
Two 800g cans of diced/crushed tomatoes
Three large fresh tomatoes
Four cups of water
One bunch of celery with the leaves
One bunch of spring onions
Three green capsicums
Two cups of green beans
One kilogram of carrots
Dice all vegetables, add to a large pot with canned tomatoes, liquids and soup mix. Bring to a rapid boil for five minutes then reduce to a simmer for approximately twenty minutes, or until vegetable tenderness is to your liking. You can vary the thickness of the soup by adding more or less water. You can also use a stick blender or food processor if you prefer a smooth soup. To improve the taste, feel free to add salt, pepper, herbs, or spices.
This soup has very low calories, so you can eat as much as is needed to help make you feel full. It will also boost your immune system if you don't usually eat many vegetables, and also increase your energy levels. If you would like to substitute any of the vegetables in the soup please ensure that the replacement vegetable has close to the same GI number as the original vegetable.

This stage of the Kick Start Diet involves the re-introduction of normal food, but only food that has a low GI (glycemic index) count: a count of 55 or less. Start by preparing some of your usual meals but replace all of the items with ones that have a low GI. Choose from the list below and remember to include plenty of lean protein. You can also continue eating the Kick Start soup as a snack if you wish.
A glycemic index count is measured by the potential of a sugar or carbohydrate to raise blood sugar levels. The higher your blood sugar level is, the more likely your body is going to store fat instead of burning it.

Packed with a variety of colorful vegetables, a vegetable soup is low in calories and high in essential nutrients. It provides fiber, vitamins, and minerals, promoting fullness and supporting overall health.
Chicken and Vegetable Broth:
A lean protein source like chicken combined with a medley of vegetables in a clear broth creates a satisfying and low-calorie soup. Protein helps maintain muscle mass during weight loss and keeps you feeling full longer.
This Italian classic typically contains a mix of beans, vegetables, and whole grain pasta. The combination of fiber and protein makes it a filling option that can be both nutritious and supportive of weight loss goals.

Lentils are an excellent source of protein and fiber. A hearty lentil soup can provide a sense of satiety while delivering essential nutrients and energy.
Cabbage soup is often associated with detox diets, but it can also be a nutritious addition to a weight loss plan. Cabbage is low in calories and high in fiber, promoting a feeling of fullness.

Remember, while these soups can be beneficial for weight loss, it's important to maintain a balanced and varied diet. Additionally, portion control and mindful eating are key components of any successful weight loss strategy.
