Weight Loss Recipe: Curried Chicken & Mango Salad

The loss of weight is not dull when you concentrate on fun, vibrant food. What does that mean? What does that mean? You will, of course, produce more balanced and healthier menus by merely ensuring that your plate represents a wide variety of colours. Not everybody is willing to take the time or patience to count calories, but it takes only an instant to measure shades on your plate!

Why does colour matter? Many calorific, fatty foods are beige or brown, like dairies and starchy carbs. If your plate has too many of these drab shades, weight gain is almost inevitable.

This is because these beige foods are always calorie-rich and can make you feel hungry later. Cups can be over 200 calories with either beige or brown bean ... but the cups are less than 100 red or green vegetables. Add to your meal fresh greens, deep purple roots and light-coloured yellow-orange, and add water to the food, while calories go down! Also, when you have a selection of colours and flavours on your plate, you'll get more satisfaction from eating.
