Slow Cooker Weight Loss Soup is one of the easiest recipes you can make. It basically involves chopping up a bunch of veggies and patiently waiting for the slow cooker to do all the work.

This soup is also very budget friendly and is packed with nutrients. After indulging over the holidays, this soup is the perfect meal to get you back on the right track and start the new year healthier.

  • You can use the veggies that you like most in this recipe. For example, if you don’t like or you don’t have green beans on hand, you can use zucchini. Or you can skip the bell pepper if you are not a fan.
  • I recommend keeping the celery and the cabbage, as they are known for their “weight loss” and detoxifying properties, also they make the soup heartier, hence it will keep you fuller!
  • To make the soup even more healthier, you can replace the white potatoes with sweet potatoes..
  • For more flavor, you can pick canned diced tomatoes that have been fire roasted or have some type of herbs added to them. Also, San Marzano canned tomatoes are the best in my opinion!
  • Make sure you season the soup, otherwise it will taste blend. Dried herbs add a very nice flavor to the veggie broth.
  • If you don’t have veggie broth on hand, you can also use chicken broth, but the soup won’t be vegetarian anymore.
  • If you prefer, you can add beans to the soup for extra protein. I prefer to skip them, only because I consider this soup a lighter meal, that gives my digestive system a break, and beans are harder to digest.
  • The thyme and bay leaves are optional, they add great flavor, but if you don’t have any on hand, you can skip these.


  • Slow Cooker - the slow cooker is almost my most used kitchen gadget, especially during fall/winter! It's just so convenient, and lets face it, it makes comfort food taste even better!

  1. How often do you eat it?

  2. This really looks super healthy and good! Pinned!

    1. Holli@TheSlowRoastedItalianJanuary 31, 2018 at 7:11 AM

      Enjoy and let us know how it goes!

  3. Do you think you could add maybe 2 uncooked chicken breasts in at the beginning? Would they cook through? My fiancé needs the meat, but I’d still like to make it! Thanks!

    1. Sarah Irvine: I just saw your post. I need to have meat protein every day. When I need to add chicken to a recipe, I boil, then simmer it separately. It's done and can be added to the soup when the chicken is no longer pink.

  4. My spouse and I stumbled over here different website and thought I might as well check things out.
    I like what I see so now i'm following you.
    Look forward to looking over your web page for a second time.

  5. Has anyone who has tried this Slow Cooker Weight Loss Soup, did it work and how much weight in 1 month did they loose

    1. Just eat the doup as your main lunch meal and see what happens! Don’t forget to make sure you get enough protein, though!

  6. You mentioned an instapot version of this soup but I can't find the link to it.

    1. Holli@TheSlowRoastedItalianJanuary 3, 2019 at 7:28 AM

      Hi MadMex2K, there is a clickable link above to the Instant Pot Weight Loss Soup, hope that helps.

  7. What could be bad about this soup, add a little hot sauce to your personal bowl and chow down. I'm out today to get the vegetable broth and giving it a try tonight. Thanks for another great recipe.

    1. Holli@TheSlowRoastedItalianJanuary 3, 2019 at 7:29 AM

      Awesome Patty Leckliter, enjoy and let us know how it goes!

  8. Tried it in my new instant pot tonight. 30 minutes on the soup setting and out turned out better than any of my crockpot versions of it! I did saute onions, celery, and garlic first and then threw the rest in. Absolutely amazing!

  9. First ever slow cooker meal. Thanks for the recipe!

  10. How long would it take on the high setting in the crockpot? 4 hours?

  11. I have a few questions. 1. What is the serving size? 2. Do you have the nutritional information on this? WW point value? And 3. How often can you eat it?🙂Thanks
