How to Make Fat Burning Soup with Sweet Potato

If you are trying to lose weight, sweet potato can actually help you a lot. It is high in dietary fiber, low in calorie content and laden with water, all of which work together to shed those extra pounds from your body. The fiber is digested slowly, due to which you keep feeling full for longer. This prevents you from overeating, thereby reducing your calorie intake and avoiding weight gain. Each serving of sweet potato contains only 100 calories, as compared to 400-500 calories in each serving of white potatoes and other calorie rich foods. As it contains high amount of water, your stomach is filled with water and you end up consuming less food by the end of the day. By using a little creativity and adding a few ingredients, you can successfully make fat burning soup with sweet potato. This oneHOWTO article will suggest you a few nice recipes.
