According to a recent study, taking chicken soup as a meal starter can help us in cutting our food intake by 20 percent. According to Dr. D. D. Chen, of Duke University, taking fatty chicken soup before your meal can decrease your food consumption by 20 percent.
In this study, when 12 normal weight and 12 obese people were given chicken soup before eating pizza, both normal and obese people ate less portion after taking the fatty chicken soup. But when the same group of people was given protein-based soup before eating pizza, they eat the pizza as usual. S chicken based soup does the trick.
