Celery is a universal product that is used in diet food for weight loss, for medicinal purposes and to satisfy gastronomic needs.

The benefits of celery for weight loss
The influence of this vegetable on the figure proves that the products that you need to eat in order to lose weight exist.
- It has a "negative calorie content." This characteristic indicates that more calories are consumed in digesting this product than comes with it during meals. For this reason, the more you eat it, the faster you get rid of extra pounds.
- A mild diuretic action allows you to quickly remove excess fluids from tissues, eliminate edema, and thereby reduce body weight and volume.
- Celery fiber is an excellent “brush” that cleans stagnant masses from intestinal loops, thereby preventing putrefactive processes and the risk of slow toxicity. In addition, from the mechanical effects of fiber, the epithelium of the small and large intestines intensively evacuates dead cells, which allows more active colonization of the mucous membrane with intestinal cultures.
- The substances contained in the vegetable affect biochemical metabolic reactions and thereby accelerate metabolic processes.
- Thanks to a special essential oil, celery activates the secretion of gastric juice, which accelerates the breakdown of food in the stomach.

Diet on Celery Soup: Slimming Menu
With celery soup, you can lose weight pretty quickly. But doctors do not recommend such rapid transformation. It is necessary to return the former harmony slowly, but surely, so as not to harm the body and not gain weight after a diet.
Every day you need to cook fresh soup for the whole day - this is a minimum of 2 servings. One for lunch and the other for dinner. Twice a week there should be a first dish of celery root.
In the morning until 12 noon you can eat any breakfast you are used to. At lunch - celery soup, and for a second meat or fish without a side dish. Approximately 250 grams.
Or a vegetable dish, but without meat and fish. Also 250 grams. For dinner - only celery soup. You can eat another serving of soup in the evening, if there is a feeling of hunger. It does not hurt.
You can lose the same 7-8 kilograms in a week. But then you have to adhere to more stringent rules. Meals should be at least 4-5 per day. Last appointment no later than 6 pm.
Every day you need to cook a variety of celery soups, but do without meat. And at least 3 servings of soup per day. And in between the main meals you can eat not very sweet fruits, salads from non-starchy vegetables. For example, salads from cucumbers and tomatoes, from fresh cabbage and carrots, salads from seaweed.
But it’s soup, nothing else. So a small pot with 5-6 servings of soup should be ready every day.
What happens during such a diet:
- the body receives most of the necessary vitamins and minerals that are found both in celery and in other vegetables,
- complexion improves, puffiness under the eyes is removed,
- celery soup gives a feeling of satiety, dulls hunger,
- a slight laxative and diuretic effect occurs
- sleep improves.
Reviews of losing weight
I saw the result of my girlfriend, so I decided to try the diet on celery soup myself. I ate only soups in different variations, and without limitation. And in a week she dropped 5 kilograms. For me it is essential.
And most importantly - not burdensome, tasty. But for those who do not like celery, I advise you to make mashed soups. And to the soup - celery croutons. Slices of the root just need to roll in a raw egg, and then in breadcrumbs. And fry in vegetable oil until golden brown. Even those who do not like celery, in this form will surely fall in love.
Oksana Shpitalenko, 36 years old, Moscow
The wife persuaded to eat soup from celery roots and drink juice from the stems of this plant. My weight was 98 kilograms with a height of 164 cm. I did not like it. Especially the stomach. I lost 7 kilograms in a week. That is, it took a kilogram a day.
Although I ate 10 servings of soup cooked in beef broth during the day. Frankly, I liked the recipe for the soup, in which there was still green peas and boiled chicken eggs.
Oleg Yakovlev, 41 years old, Ufa
Another recipe for celery soup can be taken from the following video:
The first day of the diet: fruits other than bananas, grapes and melons, as well as celery soup.
The second day of the diet: vegetables and soup.
The third day of the diet: vegetables, fruits and soup.
The fourth day of the diet: in addition to soup, drink 1 tbsp. skim milk or 1 liter of low-fat kefir and eat a banana.
Fifth day of the diet: soup and 100 g of meat - lean boiled beef or chicken, as well as 3-4 fresh tomatoes.
Sixth day of the diet: 350 g of boiled meat, lettuce and celery soup.
Seventh day of the diet: 300 g of rice, best of all wild, and soup.
On all days of the diet, without restrictions, you can drink coffee and tea, but only without the addition of sugar. But it is necessary to exclude from the diet any sweets, alcoholic and carbonated drinks, pickles, smoked meats, bread and flour products. According to numerous reviews, this diet allows you to lose 4-5 kilograms in 1 week.
In addition to the fact that celery excellently helps in the fight against excess weight and in its composition, many useful nutrients of a diet based on it have a number of other advantages.
Here is some of them:
- The constant intake of liquid food has a beneficial effect on metabolism. Choose the soup recipe that suits you and enjoy a delicious meal.
- Low calorie foods allow you to eat them without restrictions. You can cook not only liquid food by and choose a salad recipe and not even one, but several.
- You can not only lose weight, but also improve the general condition of the body.
The action of the celery diet
Celery soup itself does not have a unique effect on fat metabolism. Although this plant contains many vitamins, a large number of fibers and a number of mineral compounds, this does not explain the good results of its use. The main reason for its effectiveness is that celery soup is a liquid dish, and it is this category of food that helps to cope with excess weight.
When using this or any other dietary soup, a person receives a minimum of calories, but at the same time, absorbs a sufficiently large amount of food, due to which he creates and for some time maintains a feeling of fullness. Satisfaction with such a meal is also formed for the reason that the soup is served hot, and this makes eating more “essential” in the eyes of any person.
In principle, instead of celery, you can use other soups prepared on the basis of vegetables.They will have a similar effect on the state of body weight. Although, of course, we must keep in mind that its use as a first course is not all that is required of a person who wants to lose weight.
For 7-10 days on a celery soup, or rather, on a celery diet, which was created on the basis of this dish, a weight loss of 5-6 kg is expected. But is it really possible to lose almost a kilogram per day, if you just add this wonderful remedy to your diet? Of course not, and if you have already been on various diets more than once, then you yourself probably guess about it.
In fact, in order to achieve such successes (by the way, as the reviews say, in fact, the results are less impressive), it is necessary, in fact, to limit your diet only to this soup. Sometimes it is allowed to eat fruits and vegetables in small quantities, but this practically does not affect the calorie intake. So losing weight on celery soup is not the result of the fat-burning action of this dish, but a consequence of the severe restriction of caloric intake.

The composition and characteristics of the main product
Celery is a new discovery by nutritionists. All parts of the plant are equally useful for weight loss and differ only in their special taste. This is good, as it allows you to diversify the menu. Someone immediately stops his specific taste and smell, but there are those who like them.
Celery owes its popularity to:
- negative calorie content (100 g of product contains 12 kcal),
- the ability to rid biological tissues of toxins,
- rich composition.
Let's talk about the last advantage in more detail. Celery is called a storehouse of nutrients because it contains:
- Vitamin C for elasticity of blood vessels and skin elasticity.
- B vitamins necessary for metabolism and normal functioning of the main organ systems.
- Cellulose that cleanses the intestines from toxins and improves digestion.
- Esters with sedative properties.
- Organic acids that have a rejuvenating effect.
- Minerals: potassium, magnesium, calcium to strengthen the heart, bones, immunity.
- Luteolin, inhibiting the development of senile dementia.
Celery is unique for its ability to:
- improve sleep
- relieve nervous tension,
- tone up the body.
On this, his versatile influence does not end there:
- He relieves hunger for a long time. Mainly due to fiber, which fills the stomach and creates tension in its walls. The brain perceives this as a signal of satiety and ceases to torment the owner with hunger.
- The intestines are activated, by the way, also due to fiber. It is not digested in the human body, therefore it passes through the entire gastrointestinal tract, preserving its pristine coarse-fiber structure, and resembles a brush that cleans everything in its path, namely the walls of the digestive canal. And as you know, toxins and toxins are not the last culprits in the accumulation of body fat.
- Soup from celery has a light diuretic effect, which eliminates puffiness and cellulite.
- Celery solves another problem that occurs when losing weight - sagging skin.
Celery is a famous phytotherapist. It helps with a number of diseases, including:
- urolithiasis disease,
- kidney disease.
In the matter of losing weight, he has no equal, since due to celery, hormonal levels are normalized, metabolism is regulated, and fat is oxidized. Therefore, celery soup is not only minus excess weight, but also plus health and youth.
But if everything is clear with celery ...
Why exactly soup?
The reasons are quite logical:
- The composition of the soup includes a host of other ingredients that smooth the sharp taste of celery.
- A serving of celery soup contains 25–35 kcal. This is a real find for quick harmony. At the same time, a bowl of soup, unlike a snack or salad, gives a feeling of satiety, and this, in turn, relieves stress due to food restrictions.
- Hot soup calms and warms better.
There are few of them, but they are still there:
Diuretic action, someone sees as a disadvantage, and someone as an advantage.
Losing weight on celery soup is better for a week, after taking a 2-week break and repeating if you wish.
The advantages are encouraging, and I want to quickly begin to prepare it. Past negative experiences are no reason to deny yourself new attempts.

- The diet does not prohibit the addition of greens to a fat burning celery dish, so it can be used in any quantities, either fresh, dried or frozen.
- Some sources recommend flavoring the dish with natural spices, but spicy seasonings greatly whet your appetite, so it’s best to add them to a minimum or not put in the vegetable base at all.
How to Make Celery Slimming Soup
Shredded cabbage with a knife. It will take about half the average head of cabbage, weight 400-500 g.
I cut celery (stalks) into small pieces. It will take 3-4 petioles. In general, the slices for this soup should not be too coarse so that the vegetables are cooked faster and retain a maximum of vitamins.
I cut onions in half rings. The original recipe requires a large amount of onions - 5-6 pieces of medium size. That is why celery soup is often called onion soup.
I clean the bell pepper from the seed box and cut into a cube. In winter, when the market offers vegetables of better quality and at cosmic prices, you can use frozen pepper.
I also chop the tomatoes in small pieces. If desired, tomatoes can be peeled off, scalded with boiling water, or left as is.
I send the slices to the pan (volume 3 l) and pour cold water. I put on a strong fire and bring to a boil. Add salt and spices to taste.
I cook for 15 minutes, with a slight boil. You can cook longer, but still it is desirable that the vegetables remain a little crispy, undigested.
The aroma of the soup is special, celery, you need to get used to it. Serve right after cooking. If you don’t like slices of boiled vegetables, you can beat them with a blender - you get celery soup puree (then cook a little longer, until the cabbage is soft).
Celery soup for weight loss can be served immediately after cooking. It promises a quick result and is absolutely safe for health. Lose weight on health!
