Each recipe or meal in 400 Calorie Fix has a colored star that indicates which essential nutrient the meal provides.
Collect all four colored stars every day, and you’ll know you're getting the nutrients you need as the pounds melt away with every tick of the clock! Here's how it works ...
BLUE star means the meal contains more than 20 grams of protein, which helps build your muscles AND helps you burn more calories.
A RED star identifies recipes rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, which help suppress appetite, maintain healthy cholesterol levels, and lower your risk for type 2 diabetes.
An ORANGE star means the recipe contains at least 7 grams of healthy fiber, which actually "grabs" the unwanted fats before they can be converted into cholesterol.
A GREEN star identifies recipes that contain at least 1 cup of fruits and vegetables. You need at least this amount to get the essential vitamins and minerals you need.
