For weight loss, would soup be the best go-to? Is it more filling then chewing solid food? Could you just mix your solid food in a blender to make the soup? :)

Soup is more filling, but not more satiating. Your stomach will feel full with less total caloric intake with soup, but you will be hungry sooner, as your body will not sense it has received adequate nutrition. Just eat real whole foods, leaning heavy towards non-starchy vegetables and a variety of (preferrably pastured) meats and wild caught fish. Anything to try and "trick" the stomach into feeling full will not be sustainable, because you can't fool the body long term. Eat your calories, don't drink them. Animals given processed chow gained weight compared to animals given solid food sources of equal calories.

No. Eat whole foods, try not to drink them (Ex. Juices and soups). :)

typically, in the long term, soup is not as filling as whole foods.
Soup does have more volume, so it fills up your belly, but the body excretes liquids much more efficiently (in terms of time) than solids. So you piss out the liquids and are left hungry again --- sooner...
For weight loss, focus on high quality vegetables and protein. Do not eschew the fat, but it is also not necessary to focus on fat either (i.e. no need to chug coconut oil -- but no need to trim the fat off the beef either).
And eat until you are 80% full. Don't eat to excess, eat until you are content and then stop. Then don't eat again until you are hungry.
Also, for weight loss, interval training (especially on foot) and resistance training are will enhance your weight loss.
