If you take a moment to check out the Urban Kitchen range, you’ll find that our soups offer several benefits. In addition to being extremely convenient, each pot offers one of your recommended five per day of vegetables. They’re also gluten-free and vegetarian-friendly, which means that practically everybody can eat them. The low sugar content only adds to the package.

On top of all of that, our soups also have very low fat content. This makes them the ideal addition to a low-fat diet. An Urban Kitchen soup can act as a small snack in between your main meals, or it can accompany a meal without adding too much fat into the equation.

Of course, with so many diets out there, you may wonder what the benefits of going low-fat really are. After all, many also espouse the benefits of a low-carb diet over a low-fat one.

We’re not here to decide your dietary choices for you. However, here are a few reasons why a low-fat diet may be a good choice for you.

Benefit #1 – Less Bad Fat

The obvious benefit of a low-fat diet is that you’re introducing less fat into your system.

But it’s a little more complicated than that.

Your body needs some fat to operate correctly. However, there’s a difference between good and bad fats.

On the bad side, you have trans fats and saturated fats. Both can lead to cholesterol build-up and will have long-term damaging effects on your body.

Going low-fat means that you generally avoid the foods that contain these types of fats. Of course, you still need to ensure you eat enough healthy fats to keep your body in good working order.

Benefit #2 – Weight Loss

Another seemingly obvious benefit is weight loss.

Eating less fat means that you’re less likely to gain weight. It’s almost that simple. Of course, there are other factors to keep in mind. Eating low-fat while eating a lot of carbs can still lead to weight gain. The way that your body deals with excess glucose plays a role in that.

But as long as you’re smart with your diet, cutting your fat intake will lead to impressive and long-term weight loss.

Benefit #3 – May Help You to Control Insulin Levels

The good news is that many of the foods that can lead to your body having excess sugar also contain a lot of fat.

As a result, you’re cutting both fat and sugar from your diet when you adopt a low-fat diet.

This means that there’s less glucose in your bloodstream, which means your body needs less insulin to deal with the glucose. That’s a good thing, as forcing your body to produce too much insulin can lead to the development of an insulin resistance. And if you have an insulin resistance, you also face a higher risk of developing Type-2 diabetes.

You enjoy all of these benefits and more when you include Urban Kitchen’s range of soups into your low-fat diet. Find out what our range has to offer you today.
