Default Is this soup a "Filling Food"?

The "Filling Foods" soups list includes a great variety of soups such
as lentil soup, black bean soup, borscht, split pea, vegetable soup,
etc.

But in the soups header it also says, "made with filling foods only."

As you all know, that is practically an impossibility to find, because
almost all soups will contain some added sugar at least, and various
fillers. And soups like vegetable soups usually have little squares of
potato in them, etc.


Anyway, what is your opinion of this soup here, that I found in my
local supermarket.

It's an "Onion Soup", and has 97 calories, 2.1 g of protein, 2.2 g of
fat, 17.3 g of carbs, 1.9 gm of fiber and the following ingredients,
in order:

- onions
- vegetable bouillon
- salt
- butter
- beef bouillon
- chicken bouillon
- soy oil
- roast onion paste
- cheese byproducts
- pepper
- crouton

So it technically has various foods that are not on the "Filling
Foods" list. But so do 99% of the "allowed" soups listed.

What is the guidance offered people about soups?

Thanks,

doug

This is why I count points and pretty much why, alsought we have
'filling foods', everything is counted... I think the UK WW found that
too many deifted on portion size after a while. Here 'filling foods'
are just those lower point foods that fill you up and stay with you for
longer.

I try core/filling foods fromtime to time but always return to points as i
actually don't eat enough, i can eat a banana or a couple of slices of ff
cheese and not be hungry so i might eat 12 to 15 points a day and then my
body slows down, i do go this route when ravelling because it is easier than
trying to journal when on the road, Lee

Potatoes are a filling food.

Some commercial soup have made it to the "Filling Food list" or back then
the Core list, for convenience only. I would not consider a soup that had
butter and cheese by products to be a Filling Food.

of course, I make my own soup, with only filling foods. Problem solved.

and let me be clear here, i don't have what it takes to do filing foods all
the time, but i do lean ttowards those foods to eat because for the most
part they do keep me less hungry longer. the bean soup i just made would
qualify i think, it had 4 kinds of beans, pork broth i made cooled and
skimmed the fat off of, a bag of frozen carrots, a bag of frozen soup
vegetables, and the only non core food was some hummis that i used to
thicken it with, in this case i would divide the hummis and count that, but
when i was done i had 17 cups of bean soup and it will get frozen for later
use, its 4 pts on regular points, and 1 on filling foods, Lee

To be sure that a soup is a Filling Food, I think you are probably going to
have to make it from scratch yourself.

It's a convenience thing.. people were complaining that there weren't any
pre-made Core foods.. so there we are.

Bottom line is, they are Core (simply filling) because Weight Watchers says
so. It's their program. I don't count them as Simply Filling myself.

It's your plan, your call...
