Miso May Burn Belly Fat

It is National Soup Month, so says my friend YumSugar. So I thought I would tell you about a little research done on miso soup recently.

Japanese researchers found that brown seaweed, used to make miso, "stimulates a protein that causes fat oxidation and conversion of energy to heat." Translated into plain English, it helps burn fat. Belly fat to be even more specific. Well, belly fat of mice to be even more specific.

Now, I need to remind you that the findings are preliminary and no testing has been done on humans. I for one, however, will be using this as an excuse to go out for sushi and order miso soup to kick off the meal.

Miso is great. I buy the paste from my grocery store. If you shop at New Seasons, Whole Foods, or Wild Oats they usually sell it in the refrigerator case and it is much better than the powdered stuff!

Also, if you live near an Asian grocery store, or have a decent Asian section in your grocery store, it is actually not hard to make by yourself (although I cheat and use vegetable or watered down chicken stock).
