However, all being said, it’s important to remember this very well that salads and soups are only part of a balanced diet and not a complete meal in itself. Therefore, attempting to try out a diet that only boasts of depending on soups and salads can not just devoid you of other nutrients you may need to lose weight, but also make you more prone to experiencing deficiencies. Remember, soups and salads alone do not make a healthy choice. Whether you are vegan, vegetarian or a non-vegetarian, you need a balanced intake of all food groups to lose weight in a holistic manner. Relying on just one form of nutrition won’t help you lose weight well, or even if it does, the results may not be beneficial in the long run.
Some nutritionists also opine that while soups and salads make for a lighter meal and are low on carbs, they may not be the most helpful choice at all times. The body needs nutrients to keep moving, and depending on the lifestyle you lead, higher carb consumption may be required. For the same reason, having soups and salads as your last meal of the day (ideally, had 2-3 hours before bedtime) is preferable, instead of having them for breakfast or lunch.
