New Progresso soup 0 Weight Watchers points

I have seen the commercials for the new progresso soup that has 0 weight watchers points and only 60 cal a serving. I found it at the store yesterday so had to give it a try. I think this was a chicken noodle one. I don't remember there being chicken in it but chicken broth. Anyway it was VERY good. I was pleasantly surprised. I got three of them to try. We will see about the others.
It does say on the can though that it is a 2 serving can and if you have more than one serving it will be more than 0 points. My guess would be 1 point.
Anyone else try them yet?

OP here. I am one who really likes my salt. and I didn't miss it. They taste really close to the other soups they have.

and HOLY MOLY are they amazing. LOVE it. I'm a college student and sometimes what I do, when I'm in class all day and studying at school, is bring a can and nuke it. This week I had the southwestern garden vegi, and it was so amazing. Totally made me happy and the whole can was only 120. It was such an awesome alternative to the crap they sell at school. Absolutely delish. I love food that I can cart around. Makes life so much easier when all I'm doing is BizCalc.

My fave is the southwestern vegi. Any other ones you've tried and liked? :)

I just tried the southwestern one. It is a bit spicy but very flavorful. Lots of beans and some corn with big chunks of celery and carrot. It smells like roasted corn tortillas while it is heating.
I will buy it again.

I really like the italian veggie one, kind of reminds me of minestrone without the beans. The barley one is also pretty good. Not my first choice in the line but I'd buy it again...

Ugh....go ahead and fill yourself up on more chemicals just to avoid eating some real food and *GOD FORBID* a bit more calories.

Yeah I agree with you 8:54. I was going to point that out earlier but I didn't want to start anything. I'm sure I seem like I'm attacking those who eat the soup but I'm not. I think eating the soup every once in awhile is fine if you're short on time, but it's better to eat unprocessed food. Who cares if it has a lot more calories, it's better to eat food that keeps you healthy and contains nutrition. I feel like ppl are so obsessed with calories instead of eating food that is good for them. Also, you can easily make your own soup so that way you're using less ingredients and controling what goes in it.

Wow, everyone's a critic..

You know, I bet your parents were like that.. And that's why you have a weight problem.. Much like the rest of us here, criticism and negativity is not needed on this site..

I don't have weight problems. I'm here to because of my fitness goals i.e. building lean muscles and getting a six pack, which I'm really doing well with. I'm sorry you are bringing your bitter attitude here. I am offering some really good advice, and perhaps in a sarcastic way.....take it or leave it, but don't get bitter. You can listen to an accomplished person (me) or go on your merry way. Your choice.

And you assume I am not accomplished? How obnoxious. Again. You sounded quite bitter yourself, but I guess you are only capable of dishing it out..

I get easily annoyed when OP ask questions/look for help on these or any other boards and are responded to with nastiness and superiority.

And the fact that you claim to be working on a 6-pack?? LOL I will definitely leave that.. And be on my merry way..

What's wrong with working on a 6-pack?

ANYWAY, back to the OP's very thoughtful suggestion to those of us that WOULD enjoy a low calorie soup:

Thank you for the suggestion, I haven't tried them yet but can't wait! I LOVE soup and could use some new ones to try!

I am a college student as well and can't boil water in my room to make soup so I think this is a great idea. I will look for the soups and give them a try.

Progresson Soup - 0 points

I have tried the Chicken and vergetables and the Italian vegetable soups Both were very good --suprisingly so. The broth was thin as I might have expected nor was it flavorless light the "Healthy Choice" Campbell's soup.

The can says 2 servings. However it is avtually a bit more than 2 as the serving size is 1 cup and there are more than 2 cups in the can. However, even the full can (lets face it, the whole can is a real meal.... anything else is starving yourself) only counts for 1.5 points. That is still a bargain.

I purchase three varieties, but I will certainly get more.

I just hope this isn't the equivalent of the fat-free yogurt on Seinfeld where there was actually tons of fat in the product.

The sodium in the "0 point" soup

IS way unhealthy. There are 0 points but the sodium is very very high. The sodium is 820mg in HALF a can.

Thursday, October 11, 2007, 12:56 PM

Add comment
It's true about the sodium in this soup..820mg per serving is way too high. Progresso makes a 50% less sodium soup and that is way better all around.

Sunday, October 14, 2007, 6:57 AM

Add comment
sodium level very high, if you get there low sodium you can find some flavors that are only one or two points, so you can still have a very low point soup and it is heathier because the sodium level is much better. That said i have tried the0 point soup and it is not bad so if you need a 0 point snack having it is ok i would just suggest not having it to often cuase the sodium level, just think of all the water retention that goes along with sodium lol

so, at zero points, does that mean that you can eat as much as you want of the soup?? also, did weight watchers and progresso combine efforts or does the soup just advertise that it has no points, much in the same way that potato chips are marketed as "no cholesterol" ??

Thursday, October 18, 2007, 2:10 PM

I don't know if they colaberated on the making of it. But it does say that if you eat more than half the can, the recomended serving size that it would result in more than 0 points.

Progresson Soup - 0 points

the soup is GREAT!!!!

does anyone know for sure how many W W points the whole can would be?

Wednesday, November 07, 2007, 12:52 PM

My WW leader said the whole can is 2 pts which is odd b/c one serving is 0.

Wednesday, November 07, 2007, 1:06 PM

The can itself says how many points if you have the whole can. I think it is 0 points because technically it is less than one.
But even two points insn't bad.
And I for one don't watch my salt intake. I have to have flavorful food and salt brings flavor.
I had the italian something one the other day. Sorry just can't remember the whole name.
I didn't care for it. It was not very flavorful. But the chicken ones I have liked.
The southwest one is a bit spicy but good.

Whole can = 1 point

I used my point calculator, and the whole can is 1 point.

I tried the vegetables & barley. It was OK but not that great. I probably wouldn't buy it again. I was reading the ingredients to see how it can be 0 point per serving, and I think it is because the ingredients are mostly vegetables, and it has very little barley and barley has enough fiber to make it 0 point per serving. I don't know how the other soups with noodles can be 0 point per serving.

I think it might be better to just get fat-free chicken broth and add lots of veggies and make soup out of that. You don't get all that sodium or the preservatives.

im on the progresso soup diet, i need to know if a can eat any progresso soups or only the one that have "weight watchers" labeled on them? please help

I am not sure what your question was. I don't know the particulars of the progresso soup diet. But I found a web site where you can look up the regular progresso soup and calorie wise it isn't that much different of course depending on what soup you choose.
The 0 points soup has considerably less fat though.
My lite vegetable and noodle soup has 60 cal per serving 2 servings per can. And 0.5 gr fat.
You can compare that to whatever you like on the web site.
Hope that helps.
If not try and be a little more specific with your question and I will see what I can do.

I am eating it RIGHT NOW!

I'm eating the veggie one right now and it is superb! I would not have thought anything less from Progresso. Their soups have always been the best...meaning they are most like home made. I had the southwestern chicken last week and it was awesome..hints of corn, black beans, and lime! The veggie one I'm eating right now has rice and it is 'al dente' and not soggy. The rice has 'body' and tastes a wild rice consistency and taste. Carrot slices are whole and not mushy. Celery is still holding up and I see some green bean piece. mmmmmmmm!!! Y'all gotta try this!

I have been a big fan of the progresso soups since I started cutting calories. Yes, it has a lot of sodium and is processed, but for someone who is busy, doesn't leave the office for lunch, and likes decent quantities of food to feel full, these soups do the trick. I eat them at lunch several times a week. I am careful though to eat more fresh vegetables and healthier foods at home for dinner.

Yeah I love this soup!! Its nice having something thats only 100 calories that is warm and tasty especially in the wintertime. There is something about warm food that those 100 calorie packs cant replace. Def recommend it!! I also find it good for a lunch when you want to go out to a high calorie dinner that saves your calories for the dinner...

$1/2 coupon here:

WW has labeled all the "PROGRESSO LIGHT" soups as 0 points because they are water-full and a whole lotta veggie :) Also endorsed by bob greene's "THE BEST LIFE" diet. More than 40 varieties of Progresso Soups carry the Best Life sea;l whereas, 25 varieties have a 100 calories (or less) per cup

the diet doesn't encourage eating an entire can as a meal replacement, but rather eating a cup Prior to a smaller meal to make you fuller and get some of those veggies and fiber :)

I haven't tried the campbell's varieties but the only progresso i've had that was too watery was the minestrone :( so i'm going to switch to the campbell's for that fix :)

I like progresso soups but I had to make a point.
You don't have to always go for the ones with low points or 70 cal soups.
Even if you have Chicken and wild rice the cream soup for lunch it is 170 cals/2 serving.
It keeps you full till evening. I usually allocate 500 cals for 3 meals I have per day so that I consume around 1500 cals/day and eating this soup for lunch lets me have a snack of fruit in the evening.
Sometimes marketing and advertising doesn't let us see all our options.

I love soup....and yes - most are high in sodium, but if you watch what you eat for the rest of the day, you are likely to not over do it for your intake for the day. I also make my own soups. VERY easy and you can make any combo you want. This allows for no chemicals and I get to watch the sodium count along with everything else. I make a pot when I have time and then freeze individual servings to bring for lunches.
