You may have heard that in 2010 Weight Watcher’s made news by changing their famous Point System. Weight Watchers realized what consumers of healthy vegetarian and vegan foods have known for decades: that what we eat is even more significant than calorie count when it comes to weight control.
The Weight Watchers system assigns calorie-based “Points” to food. based on calories. Under the old system, if you ate a croissant and butter for breakfast it would have been assigned the same Points value as a breakfast of whole grain toast and eggs if both contained equal calories. The revised system takes vital nutritional differences into account. So it reduces points for healthy fiber while increasing them for fatty foods.
Indian foods are natural “weight watchers”
Indian food is healthy, wholesome and low in fat. And the best news is, Indian foods can help you trim down to fit into those jeans you’re hoping to wear or simply help you maintain “just right” weight and cholesterol.
Indian foods, such as Indianlife’s gourmet frozen entrees and stuffed wraps, are rich in heart-healthy plant fiber from protein-rich legumes, nutritious veggies and healthy grains. But the spices in Indian foods are also proven to aid weight control—even helping our bodies burn fat.
Curry leaves grow on native Indian shrubs. Currie helps us maintain healthy cholesterol by aiding digestive system function. Historically curry leaves are used for digestive disorders including diabetes and diarrhea. Coriander, known in its young green form as cilantro, is a natural diuretic that helps us shed excess water—an important part of weight loss. And ginger root has been used throughout history to promote healthy digestion.
