Diet control

Diet control is easily said than done. It takes enormous self discipline to deny you the usual quantity of food. Actually it requires tremendous courage. ‘Nobody is more courageous than the man who can stop with one peanut’ is an English proverb. While talking about moderate quantity of food every one of us must realize a social paradox in India. Ours is a developing country which means that there are millions of people below the poverty line.

They do not even eat one nutritious meal a day. When food itself is in short supply for the entire society, there are some people who eat more than their body requirement and they get medically treated for excess weight.
About 30% of the population in India are reported to be obese and about 12% of the population are morbidly obese. At the same time 12% of Indian population is starving due to non-availability of food. If the 12% morbidly obese population shows restraint over their food intake, the excess food can be passed on to the starving millions who live in the vicious cycle of poverty.

I have explained to you about the healthy food and the importance of eating a moderate quantity of food. Now it is up to you to decide whether you are living to eat or eating to live. I come under the second category, how about you?
If you ask me what is equivalent to healthy food, to maintain good health, I would say it is Exercise.
