Slow Cooker Weight Loss Soup


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.

The Slow Cooker Weight Loss Soup is loaded with delicious and vitamin packed veggies cooked in a flavorful veggie broth.

The soup is packed with fiber, which makes it hearty and filling!

Hey guys, it’s Catalina from Sweet and Savory Meals here. I am happy to be a contributor on TSRI and add recipes to Donna and Chad’s already great collection.

I love soups during this cold winter on the North East coast!

While I am always up to indulge into some Slow Cooker Baked Potato Soup, after all the incredibly tasty and dessert heavy holidays, I am more than happy to kick start the new year with a healthy meal.

Slow Cooker Weight Loss Soup

I am bringing you today a healthy and yummy Slow Cooker Weight Loss Soup that you can use to detoxify your body and get in some much needed veggies!

If you are looking for a pressure cooker version, here is a delicious Instant Pot Weight Loss Soup!


  • 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!

With love, from our simple kitchen to yours.

  1. 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.

    2. Yes chicken breasts will cook fine as the recipes says cook in low for 8 hours. You will probably want to shred the chicken after and put back in for a chicken and vegetable soup

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

      1. An amount per serving is approximately 1 cup of vegetables plus 4 ounces of broth. It’s a little difficult to provide an exact amount per serving, because it depends on how finely the vegetables are chopped. Hope this helps!

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

  4. 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.

  5. 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!

  6. Reminds me of a weight loss soup my mom made back in the 70’s. It was called the cabbage soup diet back then. It was a tasty soup and really worked for her. Thanks for sharing!

  7. I was thinking of ways to cut back on the sodium. I could use mostly water I guess. If you have other suggestions please let me know.

  8. Hi this Soup sounds great, I was wondering about the Green Beans did you mean Fresh Green Beans or canned ? Just wondering.

    1. Hi Pamela,
      We use fresh green beans in this soup, but you can use whatever you like 🙂 Happy Cooking!
