    Right here goes, I just looked at Heinze tomato soup and that is 3.2 g of fat per 100g, so does this mean I can have a can for my dinner??? :sigh: I will get there in the end I promise :eek:

    Yes, anything under 5 grms per 100 grms is fine.

    Seems high tho as a half a can of soup is 5.9g so the 400g tin would be 11.8g!!!! How can that be ok???? This is why I am confused lol

    You have to look at portion sizes. 400g of soup may not be a very substanial dinner for 11.8g of fat but is within the rules. I would perhaps have half of the soup and a piece of wholemeal toast.

    400g is about right for a protion of dinner I just think that tomato soup won't be a very filling one which is why I suggested the toast to go with it. I would look in to the GI diet as it shows which foods are filling and more satisfying. If I had a tin of tomato soup for dinner I would be very hungry soon after but if I had a meal of chicken sweet potato and veg weighing 400g would feel full. It is very confusing to start with!

    I have the Heinz Big Soups quite often - all the ones I've tried have been within the rules, and they're more like a casserole than a soup! Really filling, and very tasty :D

    Thanks for that Alex, will give them a go! I am a self employed van driver so I have to deal with boredom and quite limited dinner ideas, I am looking at getting a food flask so i can take hot soup for my dinner some days :)

    i have the heinz chunky veg soup, its the onloy soup ive have as im not a soup person but these are chunky and not like having a flavoured thin soup. they are in the rules,i have a whole can if im going to have it,with a piece of brown bread, not for dinner but for lunch.. but it all depends on my hunger really and what i plan on having for dinner and whether i want something heavier or lighter later. :)

    if youre going to be having soups daily then maybe you could make your own batch

    Making your own soups is dead easy :)

    My lentil soup is..
    1 leek
    3 good sized carrots
    ½ swede ( turnip to us Scots ;))
    approx 150g lentils ( you can use as much or as little as you want)
    3 knorr ham stock cubes
    dried parsley
    salt & pepper

    cut up the veg , bung in pot, add lentils, stock cubes, parsley, salt & pepper, and then cover with water ( I use a big soup pan, so I add probably 4 ½ pints of water) Bring to the boil and then simmer for about 20-25 minutes. Once the veg can be crushed with the back of a knife, its ready :) Allow to cool and then blitz with a hand blender ( or leave if you prefer chunky soup). Keep in a container in the fridge :)
    Easy peasy :D
    When I have my soup, I measure out what I'm having ( I always have 300g of soup), and I mark it down as 69 calories ( this is because I was buying those fresh soups, and the lentil one was 69 cal for 300g). Fat wise, its well within the 5% fat as nothing in the soup is over this :)
