f there’s one thing even the most casual dieter knows for certain, it is the importance of keeping a daily track of the calories hetakes in. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done. Reason: The paucity of reliable data on the caloric values of Indian foods.There are several factors responsible for this dietary roadblock: (a) the lack of significant research in the area of foodanalysis; (b) the fact that, unlike the West, where most of the population relies on ready-to-serve meals or packaged foods thathave been calibrated down to the last decimal, we are still a people that relies on home cooking (think: a 1000 permutations,combinations and as many caloric values for a single dish!); (c) again, unlike the West, where government policy makes itcompulsory for food manufacturers and restaurateurs to reveal caloric data, no such rules bind our food sellers... And so onand so forth.Given this sad state affairs, you can understand the dieter’s dilemma. How is he supposed to stay within his prescribeddietary limits if, say, he can’t even guess at what a breakfast of
idli-sambar 
or a dinner of
dabba gosht 
and
parathas 
could bring in, energy wise? Sure, there are dozens of little booklets in the market aimed at the dedicated dieter that listfoods and their caloric values, but a close analysis of these typically reveal that they are the works of charlatans.ollowing a diet based on such unreliable data can have serious consequences on someone who is watching hisweight for health reasons. (But even the casual dieter can be unpleasantly surprised to learn that a daily intake of a

THE DIET PRESCRIPTION
o lose weight and to maintain the loss over the long term, dieticians recommend that you attempt to drop no more thanhalf a kg a week (anything more will require a doctor’s supervision). Men are therefore advised to get atleast 1800 caloriesper day, while women can get by with 1400 calories.The following diet plan has been based on these figures and is conveniently divided into 3 meals and one snack. A midmorningor late night snack, may also be included provided the calories are adjusted with the nearest main meal.

It is important to remember  that these values will change according to the amount of fatused in cooking and also the use of ingredients such ascoconut, nuts and cream.
CALORIE COUNTING
Substitution of one food for another is possible in each of thesuggested menus but the new food chosen should preferablybe from the same group and contain approximately the samenumber of calories. The ‘Calorie Counter’ is provided to helpin this calculation. The 100 calorie exchange list makes iteasier still.
mere 100 extra calories a day could mean atleast 10 pounds of additional baggage at the end of the year.)Since readers of
Health & Nutrition 
have long been clamouring for the caloric data of Indian foods, we wentback to a little manual published over 10 years ago by the College of Home Science, Nirmala Niketan formaterial. As far as we know, barring a few minor blips, the
Calorie Counter 
is one of the most reliable andpainstakingly researched compendium of its kind. (The National Institute of Nutrition, Hyderabad, has alsobrought out a similar booklet, but on a more limited scale.) The following special section that the college haskindly permitted
Health & Nutrition 
to reproduce, is an excerpt from the manual, and provides not only acomprehensive list of caloric values of common Indian foods, but also menu plans to help dieters lose weight.ollow their advice and you’ll know that you’re on the right track!
Note:
The
Calorie Counter 
also has recipes for all the foods it has listed, so it’s worthwhile to get hold ofa copy if you can!
