Indian breakfast is best
by kieran dsouza on May 30, 2015 09:52 PM

BUT it should be made at home and not eaten in restaurant or roadside joint where they use adulterated and cheapest oils. instead, use ghee and/or coconut oil and your breakfast will fuel you for the day

Right to information Act should apply to Rediff as well so that we can find out how many, if any, writers Rediff has fired when they serve stuff like the above.

why, you were expecting to see butter chicken masala as the top pick for a healthy breakfast ?

or a masala dosa dripping with adulterated butter.

Why to cut calories in BF
by ashish g on Sep 28, 2010 06:19 PM  | Hide replies

For and average working Male/Female, the BF is most imp. meal of the day. In India, the dietary requirements of individual may range from 1500 to 2500 Calorie per day.
If you propose to cut calories in BF, from where do you add on the required calories. Is it at Lunch/ Dinner. Lets take a calorie review as per the meals. Considering the population who has 3 servings per day i.e. BF/Lunch/ Dinner. If one has to cut short BF to 250 Calorie, where would one get the balance 1200 to 2200 Calorie. Lunch than will have 800-1800 calorie and Dinner will have 400 odd calorie. Which means one should have 250 Calories for BF and 400 Calorie for Dinner. What a great idea. Just think further than reading a prepublished text of some jughead.
Go for Indian style BF but include fiber/ Fruits as well. Eat well and stay healthy

What will be maximum calorie intake from an average meal. If at lunch one will have 800-1800 Calorie, it will be chaos. The calorie intake distribution should be as under :
BF : 40-50% Calorie
Lunch: 30-40% Calorie
Dinner:20-30% Calorie
Thus total 100% as per individual needs.
1500 to 2500 Calorie may be distributed in a day as under (As per ones requirements.)
1500/Day 2500/Day
750 1200
450 750
300 500

The ones who really need to cut calorie just need to assure that their daily calorie intake as per activity level shold be less than the amount they burn per day.

I meant :
1500 Calories: BF 750/ Lunch 450/ Dinner 300.
2500 Calories: BF 1200/ Lunch 750/ Dinner 500.

Caloric Meal Distribution Example
Although spreading the caloric intake throughout the day is key, it is helpful to eat more calories early in the day. For example, 1,700 calories can be divided as the following:
450 calories for breakfast
150 calories for snack
550 calories for lunch
150 calories for snack
400 calories for dinner

By eating more calories early in the day, more energy is being used and burned, which is essential to both weight loss and maintenance.

Calori Deficiency Warning
Caloric deficiency also is a problem without knowing the proper amount of calories needed. Not eating enough calories can lead to risks endangering the heart, brain, and in extreme cases, death.

One can have anything - but should burn it !!
by Kapil Sharma on Sep 28, 2010 06:19 PM

every country / region has food as per their tradition, which in general is as per the suitability based on climate, location, work culture and other things.

sometimes the culture changes but food habits remain same. like for instance, the fat and calories mentioned in article is not too much cosidering the earlier work culture where people toiled in fields. and had to depend mostly on their feet for travelling.

also people were not couch potatoes, and children too used to play field games and not video games. ofcourse Television has become a kind of problem.

One can have any food of choice, but the only thing is - he should be working hard enough to burn the calories and fat !! :-)

I think dieticians are making good money.

sounds like abuses for a bloated population like ours in India. Common sense has no place where nonsense prevails.. Good article but few takers.
