Nutrition Comparison: Chicken Curry Step Up Meal vs Takeaway Curry

Chicken Curry Step Up Meal

Everyone knows a takeaway curry isn’t the ideal diet food. When you add in the rice, you can be looking at well over 1,000 calories*. Throw in some naans and bajjis and you could be well beyond your daily calorie needs for the whole day. Let’s see what happens when we compare a ‘reasonable’ takeaway curry dish (without all of the extras) to our new Chicken Curry Step Up Meal…

Overall results

Our Chicken Curry Step Up Meal has about one quarter of the calories, one fifth of the fat, less than one fifth the carbs and less than half the sugar. Amazingly, our Step Up Curry has almost the same amount of healthy fibre, despite a fraction of the calories. The takeaway curry has more protein, however our Step Up Curry has a much higher ‘percent’ protein (35% protein versus 24%) and half the salt.

Also, our Step Up Curry is ready-to-eat in less than five minutes, try getting delivery or picking one up that quickly! This is important because, remember, when you’re trying to stick to a diet, if the low-calorie choice is the quickest and easiest choice, you’re much more likely to succeed.

In addition to all of this, what about the cost difference? Our Step Up Curry is sure to be a fraction of the price too! So for “curry-in-a-hurry”, lower in carbs, sugar and fat and with a high percentage of protein and fibre and a lower price, look no further than our Chicken Curry Step Up Meal!
