Conquering obesity 7.7.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The Global Nutrition Report of 2016 has revealed that 22% of the Indian adult population is dealing with obesity. This isn't surprising, as more people move to cities and take up jobs that require little or no physical activity. To make matters worse, there are a slew of ready-to-eat foods that contribute to this epidemic, with their easy availability and low nutritional value. Whether it's making a bowl of instant noodles to deal with hunger pangs or munching on a packet of chips from the vending machine, unhealthy eating habits have taken their toll on our bodies. As lifestyles get busier, the time taken to eat our food has reduced as well, and with the act of having a meal becoming an inconvenience, most people opt for a quick fix that they can carry with them. Food fixation A convenient snack can turn into a dangerous habit. Doctors have reported an ever increasing rate of diabetes and high blood pressure among the younger urban population.

The breakfast club 30.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
'Here and Now' in HSRLayout can be the perfect elixir to these ills. The place scores for the food and also for the fact that they try to make even waiting for a table a fun process. It is easy to miss the entrance to the place though. The dingy staircase inside a residential building is not a worthy precursor to the beautiful and cosy space upstairs so don't judge too quickly. Brightly painted walls, quirky decor, vintage windows and brightly lit interiors makes for a cheerful ambience. Even though there are quite a few seating options (you can choose to sit indoors, outdoors or even on the ground), the waiting time to get a table is always on the longer side. But fret not because the place has thoughtfully provided a variety of board games and other attractions to take your mind off those hunger pangs. "We wanted a place which will give one a relaxed feel so we opted for a mix of a proper dining space and a gaming place," says Ayan Ganguly, who started the place with wife Niveditha and friend Shameer. ...
