Often curry is a dirty word!
It shouldn’t be as there are loads of benefits of spices such as Tumeric which is great for inflammation in the body.
Clients often don’t want to let me know that they were out for a curry or had a take-away probably because there is the potential to go way off track with your healthy diet on curry night.
So you start with the poppadoms and pickles
Then you have a few deep fried bhajis, followed by your lovely curry in a lot of sauce, so you mop it up with a nice naan bread and a huge portion of rice.
Meantime you are washing it all down with a few ice cold singha beers
Am I right?
Is this your version of curry night?
If it is, and it is once in blue moon, then fill your boots but if it happens quite frequently then I’m not sure you are going to get the weight loss results you might be looking for.
How to make it better:
1. Go easy on the sugar filled pickles
2. Do you need a naan bread and rice – choose just 1 and share a portion of rice as often they are way more than you need
3. Choose a tandoori or tikka dish that is cooked dry rather than swimming in oily ghee. It is still super tasty but the next day you will feel much better.
4. Drive so someone else can drink all the singha beers 🙂
