You Lose, You Win
How one woman scored her dream body
A study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that eating soup with an umami flavouring (you know, that moreish, savoury taste) enhanced satiety and reduced consumption at the next meal compared with soup without. Add KOMBU , a type of seaweed, to soups or stir-fries and ascend to umami heaven minus any kilojoule come-down. Just one 15cm strip will flavour a meal for four.
