Although many vegetable-based soups are not very filling due to the lack of meat, vegetable beef soup can feel like a meal due to its protein content. Research from the May 2008 issue of the "American Journal of Clinical Nutrition" explains protein is more filling than carbohydrates and fat.
Vegetable beef soup has a wide range of calories depending on the recipe, with anywhere from 76 to 170 calories per cup. If you base your diet on the suggested daily intake of 2,000 calories, then one cup of vegetable soup contains from four to 8.5 percent of your daily calories.
Vegetable beef soup has anywhere from 1.85 to four grams of fat per cup, including 0.83 to one gram of saturated fat. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, you should consume between 20 and 35 of your daily calories from fat for optimal health.
Each cup of vegetable beef soup contains 5.44 to 11 grams of protein. This is a significant amount, as the National Institutes of Health and National Library of Medicine suggest consuming between 50 and 65 grams of this nutrient each day.
Vegetable beef soup is rich in carbohydrates. Each cup of this soup contains anywhere from about 10 to 22 grams of carbohydrates, including two to four grams of dietary fiber.
