For years now, a San Fran­cisco weight­loss guru has used South Amer­i­can su­per­foods to stim­u­late rapid weight loss. Folks were so im­pressed, they voted Manuel Vil­la­corta, M.S., R.D., the Bay Area’s best nu­tri­tion­ist five times. And that was be­fore Vil­la­corta, who was born in Peru, got the idea to in­cor­po­rate nu­tri­ent-dense Latin fa­vorites like av­o­cado, corn and pur­ple pota­toes into a soup diet. How well does his new ap­proach work? Women test­ing it for us shed up to 12 pounds and a whop­ping nine inches of belly fat in a sin­gle week! Vil­la­corta says the re­sults are ac­tu­ally bet­ter than li­po­suc­tion. “Li­po­suc­tion only re­moves fat un­der the skin’s sur­face. With my plan, you’re also re­duc­ing a deeper type of fat that trig­gers dis­ease-pro­mot­ing and weight-loss-block­ing in­flam­ma­tion through­out the body,” he notes. “It’s much healthier weight loss over­all— and it’s weight loss that’s far eas­ier to sus­tain long-term.” Want to see for yourself? Here’s ev­ery­thing you need to know . . .

Get­ting started! ● What you eat

Sip a su­per­food break­fast smoothie, have healthy snacks and en­joy two hearty soup meals each day. Just dig in— and wait for the magic to hap­pen!

● Why these soups work so well

Sci­en­tists say there’s some­thing about the way soup solids are sus­pended in liq­uid that con­fuses our bod­ies, trig­ger­ing a flood of “stop eat­ing” hor­mones af­ter we’ve con­sumed rel­a­tively few calo­ries. And that’s any or­di­nary soup. “The soup in­gre­di­ents I use are packed with nu­tri­ents proven to help you lose fat faster,” says Vil­la­corta. In fact, stud­ies show they con­tain com­pounds that speed me­tab­o­lism up to 35%! (See “South Amer­i­can soup in­gre­di­ents that slim,” right, for more.) Since most of Vil­la­corta’s soups are puréed, we’re able to ab­sorb more nu­tri­ents than we nor­mally would, max­i­miz­ing ben­e­fits dra­mat­i­cally.

● How they tar­get your tummy

South Amer­i­can su­per­foods are packed with “pre­bi­otic” fiber that feeds good bac­te­ria in our di­ges­tive tracts. Vil­la­corta says his plan pro­vides enough pre­bi­otics to help good bac­te­ria crowd out bad bac­te­ria “in as lit­tle as a week.” As bad bac­te­ria dwin­dle, di­ges­tion im­proves and bloat­ing dis­ap­pears. On top of that, re­search shows that good bac­te­ria quickly im­prove the body’s abil­ity to con­trol blood sugar; as blood sugar sta­bi­lizes, pro­duc­tion of the belly-fat­ten­ing hor­mone in­sulin plum­mets. In­flam­ma­tion caused by high blood sugar also be­gins to sub­side. “There’s ev­i­dence that by re­duc­ing in­flam­ma­tion, we more read­ily let go of fat around the mid­sec­tion,” adds Vil­la­corta, au­thor of Flat Belly 365, who has helped folks shed up to 185 pounds. “My soup fights fat while be­ing sim­ple and super-de­li­cious!”

● Real-world wow!

“I’ve al­ready made a dou­ble-batch of the Chicken Al­bondi­gas soup to en­joy this week. It’s that good! And the pur­ple po­tato soup is tasty and gor­geous. I’ll def­i­nitely make it for guests!” raves Cal­i­for­nia ex­ec­u­tive as­sis­tant Janet Liv­ingston, 52, who used the menus, right, to drop nearly a size in week. Mean­while, Juana Mat­tero, 47—who re­mem­bers starv­ing on the Cab­bage Soup Diet—was never hun­gry on Vil­la­corta’s soup plan. “And I was sur­prised how man­age­able it felt even with my very busy sched­ule,” says the Cal­i­for­nia mom, who rises at 3:30 a.m. to see her fam­ily off and make a two-hour com­mute. Bet­ter yet, “I lost 12 pounds! I had to weigh my­self twice to be­lieve it.” Juana also shrunk 25 inches in a week. “This soup diet re­ally works!”
