business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Seattle Times reports that “a recent study published in the journal Physiology & Behavior found that soups reduced hunger and increased fullness as much as solid foods. And total calorie intake was lower when participants ate soup rather than drinking similar quantities of ordinary beverages.”

This means that in many cases, eating soup is a good way of consuming fewer calories, feeling full and, in the long run, losing or maintaining weight. Of course, you have to choose the soup carefully: Manhattan Clam Chowder, for example, is better for you than News England Clam Chowder because it is tomato based rather than made with milk.
