Yeh jeena bhi koi jeena hai

March 1, 2011

some of the common dietary restrictions for all human beings and their effects on us

  1. bread  has maida and baking soda which is bad for health  means  all sandwiches are out.
  2. vada pavs or samosas  are fried that too in palm oil which is just not good for heart . moreover same oil is used again and again for frying which is again not good for health—means all fried stuff from out or even at home is a taboo.
  3. Trans fats are bad for heart and biscuits have trans fats, more over biscuits are made from maida, even the so called high fibre biscuits have maida, trans fats  —- biscuits are out
  4. The delicious taste of hotel food is because of  cream, oil, and  soda – all three are again bad for health so hotel food is out
  5. Sodium is bad for health as it lead to high blood pressure, heart problems and kidney problems so use less of salt, avoid food stuff which has baking soda or sodium carbonate–  means all papads, achars, bakery products are out
  6. Too much of fruits will surely cause sugar level to rise – fruit juices are out
  7. Coconut is bad for heart— coconut chutney, thai curry is out  —- dosa with no chutney
  8. Most of the khakhras (except for absolute dry khakhra) all are made using Dalda which is again trans fat that means even the khakras are out.
  9. Food cooked in hotels and during marriages by the caterers are not cooked hygienically – vegetables are not washed, cereals are not cleaned properly, food is cooked with dirty hands etc etc   hotel food and food prepared by caterers are out.
  10. Most of the snacks have oil so———————-
  11. colas are just empty calories, all squashes are just sugar syrups so————
  12. sweets are full of sugar/ghee/fats ———————

What is the point in slogging day and day out to earn money, what is the use of money when the same cannot be used to pamper the taste buds? 🙂

For people like me who live to eat—all these doctors, dieticians are the worst villains. 😦

I know one can enjoy all available food in moderation and all these dietary restrictions are for our own self  and our betterment and health but what about the taste sensory buds, what about relishing each morsel of food ?

Doctors say one should not have more than 1 tsp of salt per day

Now imagine one item in breakfast, normal dal roti, rice and vegetable in lunch, some light snacks in the evening and again normal food in the evening plus the natural salt present in our vegetables, fruits and other food items

The daily intake definitely exceeds the daily requirement even if minimum quantity of salt is use

This is just one example. Same is the case with sugar, fats carbohydrates

Any one who thinks that planning a healthy meal is child’s play is badly mistaken.

Honestly it is so difficult to plan daily menus keeping all the dietary restrictions in mind.

What is one supposed to do? Sit with a measuring scale, nutritive values of all food items and a calculator before planning each meal and on top of it dash out tasty, delicious food

Yeh jeena bhi koi jeena hai? —- khaye to khaye kya?—–jaayen to kahan jaaye

    Haha I have to agree with you. Too many dietary restrictions are a nuisance. It’s best to have that mental moderation gadget which cooks up scary, cellulite snaps of you and gets you stop eating. 😛
