One of the most effective ways to lose weight is to exercise often. But for many people, just hearing the word 'exercise' is a big turn off. If you swap the word exercise with 'active' then perhaps more people wouldn't be so loathe to burning more calories moving their body. So let's get that out of the way first, before listing 5 easy ways to lose weight.

For this dish, Sherry says, "This Bombay Chicken Curry recipe is very versatile. Substitute lamb for the chicken or take out the meat, add chickpeas or cooked lentils for a vegan recipe.You can also have only the curried veggies over Miracle Noodles for a side dish.The side dish goes very well with chicken breasts baked in Red Palm Oil. Enjoy!"?
Olive oil: Enough to lightly cover bottom of large pan
1 Med. Yellow onion - diced
1 orange Bell Pepper - diced
2 Yellow crooked-neck squash - diced
2 med. Zucchini squash - diced
1 can diced tomatoes
1 small can tomato sauce
1 13-oz. can unsweetened coconut milk
4 Tbsp. curry powder
1 Tbsp. Cumin
1 Tsp. salt or to taste
Approx. ½ Tbsp. Konjac, aka Glucomannan powder
2 cooked Chicken Breasts – cubed
1 package of Miracle Noodle Angel Hair (or Miracle Rice)

Add 1/3 can coconut milk and ½ can tomato sauce. Mix in and cover. Simmer. In separate, small sauce pan add remaining coconut milk, tomato sauce, 2 Tbsp. curry powder and ½ Tbsp. Cumin. Stir over low heat.
When sauce mixture is heated, begin shaking in small amounts of the glucomannan powder that will equal approximately ½ tsp while continuing to stir the mixture so it does not make lumps. When thickened, add sauce to large pan of veggies and stir in. Add cooked chicken cubes, cover and continue to simmer until cooked chicken cubes are thoroughly heated stirring the mixture so it doesn't stick. Serve over Miracle Noodles Angel Hair or Miracle Rice.
Usually, pasta salad is packed with carbohydrates. Just one serving--and who has just one serving, let's get real--has dozens of grams of carbohydrates.
And unless you're planning on doing dozens of wind sprints uphill, on the sand or stadium bleachers, the carbs you don't burn off will eventually get stored as body fat.
Carb-loaded pasta salad also usually makes you feel sleepy because of all the work your digestive system has to do in order to convert the starch into usable energy (sugar). And when you don't burn that sugar, all the blood vacates the rest of your body and surges towards your stomach. That's why a 'carb coma' can set in.
