City's diet skewed, needs change to stave off diseases 19.1.2018 Deccan Herald - City
After a recent national survey exposed the countrys unbalanced dieting pattern, city-based experts agreed that Bengaluru has pretty much gone the national way in the last decade. They blame lack of access to quality food, gender discrimination and widespread ignorance for dangerously skewing the diet. "Its the prime reason behind the increase in lifestyle diseases like diabetes, hypertension and heart ailments," said Shalini Arvind, chief dietician, Fortis Hospital. She said night shifts and activity-filled days have pushed people into adopting the quick-bite culture, making them almost hopelessly dependent on two-minute noodles and hurriedly put-together sandwiches. "They come to us eating such food," Shalini said. Even the ragi and rice-based food end up storing energy in the body for later use and create fat. "But the problem for city residents is that their diet has become westernised," regretted Sheela Krishnaswamy, nutritionist and wellness consultant. "Obviously, you can see youngsters crunching ...
