We like our vegetables al dante or crispy. This is amazingly good soup and I make it often, even if we are not trying to lose weight. I have used it for more than 20 years. This soup can be eaten as often as you are hungry. Eat as much as you want. This soup will not add calories. The more you eat the more you will lose. (If eaten alone for indefinite periods of time you will suffer malnutrition.)
Following is a recommended plan to lose weight quickly. Larry and I have done this a few times over the years to lose weight quickly before vacation or a special event. It works! I usually lose more than Larry does, I guess because women tend to retain more water. We have never followed the diet longer than 2 weeks.
