2. Soup is High in Sodium

Too much salt is never healthy, and eating soups high in sodium while on the soup diet can sabotage the weight loss work and supposed health benefits. While it tastes great, salt causes weight gain, water retention, and bloating. Unfortunately, sodium-free soups aren't nearly as tasty, and this lack of palatability can make this diet a difficult one to complete.
