    What kind of Campbell's soup?

    Some soups would provide at least some nutrition, since they contain vegetables and meat. However, if you are just talking about tomato soup, while it is good for you, isn't going to give you a lot of protein or energy.

    Regardless of what kind it is, canned soups contain A LOT of sodium. Excess sodium intake is linked to: hypertension/high blood pressure and heart disease, fluid retention, and kidney stones. A high-sodium diet increases the need for potassium.

    First thing that comes to mind is a huge increase in blood pressure. Campbell's soup has a LOT of sodium which will increase blood pressure.

    Second, severe diarrhea. That's a lot of liquid to take in and with no fiber to counteract the liquid you will have diarrhea constantly.

    Because of the diarrhea you can dehydrate. Assuming, of course, you don't drink additional water or other drinks... which would only exacerbate the diarrhea.

    Malnutrition because all you are really consuming is a small amount of noodles (carbohydrates), and liquid. Very little nutritional value.

    A whole huge host of problems can stem from any one of the things I mentioned above.

    It is NEVER a good idea to consume only one food for a month. It doesn't matter what that food is.

    You would be denying your body nutrition that it needs. Now, if you eat a salad before your meal You will eat smaller portions. Same if you eat an apple or a pear before your meal. Make your salad with mixed greens and not head lettuce, as head lettuce has very little nutrition.

    These foods are nutritious and have high fiber that is good for you and will help you to feel full faster

    You would not have a balanced nutrition, and turn into soup! Ok, not turn into soup, but 99.9% end up with your doctor and need to take nutrition pills. And, would lose weight, and puke from same amount of food. Anyway, why would you want to know? Going on a crazy diet?

    Campbell's soup isn't that good for you. Make your own soup, it's better and cheaper.

    You would have too much sodium in your diet, which would make your limbs swell and is potentially harmful for your over-all health. A can a day is fine, just make sure you add other foods into your diet so it's balanced.

    You would lose weight, but you would also be missing out on alot of nutrients that your body needs. As soon as you returned to eating normal food you would most likely gain the weightback.

    You would probably get sick of it after a week and not want to eat it anymore.
