💭 Are buddha bowls good for weight loss?
Buddha bowls can be an excellent meal choice for helping you with your weight loss journey. However, it is important to watch what exactly you are putting into your buddha bowls and to watch your portion sizes.
Because in the end, if you are trying to lose extra weight it comes down to the ratio of how much and what you ate, as well as how much you moved and burned that day.
