    I hope I am right when I consider this as my soup for losing weight. Well, its all in the mind and hopefully it works. This is a superb soup anyway, the crab,pork shrimp ball is great and the broth is so comforting. The dumplings are just an attraction to your palate, they are nice to chew and it gives sweetness to the broth. You can omit them if you like.. just add a cup of veggies in lieu of them, preferably a combination of julienne cut carrot and bamboo shoots.
