Low-calorie curry loaf recipe (unofficial Slimming World curry loaf)
I fancied something a bit different to snack on so thought I would try to make a low-calorie curry loaf. I wanted one that would be a good Slimming World friendly snack for weight loss and also really easy to make. I had seen the curry loaf recipe that includes rice and chickpea dahl but I wanted something different.

The importance of adding vegetables to your meals
Vegetables are low in calories compared to their density. This essentially means that they fill you up with very few calories.
The more vegetables you have in a meal either as a side dish or mixed in with the meal itself the lower-calorie the meal tends to be.
A filling but low-calorie meal is perfect for weight loss.
All my recipes include vegetables where possible but do feel free to add more as an accompaniment when you can.
Always choose vegetables that you enjoy because otherwise you will begrudge eating them and are more likely to before long stop cooking them at all.
Trying vegetables cooked differently or with herbs and spices can make them a little more exciting too.

Starting a diet or getting back on plan
If you are looking to start a diet, or even kickstart a diet you already follow, then a fresh start can be just what you need. Check how many syns (approx) are in your favourites or how many calories if you follow another plan so you can regain control.
Stop kidding yourself about the clothes size you are and what you weigh but instead find out for sure, make plans and move forward.
Meal planning can make a big difference so why not grab a notebook and plan this week’s meals. I recommend Musclefood for low-cost meats to keep you on track too.

This is one of my favourites though and you will want to eat more and more of it I am sure!
Why you should enjoy desserts on a diet
If you are following a diet you will know how careful you feel you should be with your calories, syns or points. One good way to make your smaller dessert more filling is to add fruit or another low-calorie food. Fat-free fromage frais is a great choice and a great addition to most desserts or have a smaller piece.
If you prefer you can add a little flavouring or sweetener too. My favourite sweetener is Canderel Sugarly.
Do you ever have a glass of water before your dessert? Next time give it a try, you will naturally eat less as the water fills you up a little. A perfect way to enjoy the dessert you want and still lose weight.
