My Motivation To Lose Weight | Eat To Lose Weight With Chicken Curry For The Soul

eat to lose weightYou have to eat to lose weight. There’s no way around it. It’s WHAT you eat that matters.

I love Chicken Curry. I crave it. So when I took on my P90X 90 day challenge, the idea of going without Chicken Curry for that long seemed a little harsh.

And for me, that’s the number one reason diets don’t work. Because the minute you think about going on one, all you can think about is all the things you have to go without. You have to eat to lose weight, and preferably you have to eat what you LIKE to lose weight.

So the purpose of today’s post is to reinforce to you that you need to eat to lose weight. You need healthy, nutritious foods that will nourish your body and excite your taste buds and keep you engaged in the process of getting into the best shape of your life.

So basically I needed to find a way that I could incorporate Chicken Curry into my eating program.

And this is what I came up with.

So if you’re currently looking for new and exciting ways you can excite your taste buds on your weight loss program, check this out.
