  5. Dear Padhu,

    For weight loss all ingredients are good except potato because Potato is full of carbohydrates which provides energy.

    In weight loss program we avoid carbs in order to use fat as energy.

    please tell me why you mention potato if this is a weight loss soup.

    I appreciate your work.
    with regards

    1. Yes, Arjun I agree with you but I have used a very small potato. Usually we add maida or cornflour to thicken soups which is very harmful for us, so in other to avoid that I have used a small potato. A small piece of potato is not going to affect in any way.

    2. It's not a good idea to avoid carbs totally for weight loss.Balanced meal is right option which include carbs fats and proteins in significant amount.
