A Dieter’s
Manual
1
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 he
takes 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 food
analysis; (b) the fact that, unlike the West, where most of the population relies on ready-to-serve meals or packaged foods that
have 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 it
compulsory for food manufacturers and restaurateurs to reveal caloric data, no such rules bind our food sellers... And so on
and so forth.
Given this sad state affairs, you can understand the dieter’s dilemma. How is he supposed to stay within his prescribed
dietary 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 list
foods and their caloric values, but a close analysis of these typically reveal that they are the works of charlatans.
Following a diet based on such unreliable data can have serious consequences on someone who is watching his
weight for health reasons. (But even the casual dieter can be unpleasantly surprised to learn that a daily intake of a
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 went
back to a little manual published over 10 years ago by the College of Home Science, Nirmala Niketan for
material. As far as we know, barring a few minor blips, the Calorie Counter is one of the most reliable and
painstakingly researched compendium of its kind. (The National Institute of Nutrition, Hyderabad, has also
brought out a similar booklet, but on a more limited scale.) The following special section that the college has
kindly permitted Health & Nutrition to reproduce, is an excerpt from the manual, and provides not only a
comprehensive list of caloric values of common Indian foods, but also menu plans to help dieters lose weight.
Follow 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 of
a copy if you can!

THE DIET PRESCRIPTION


6
o lose weight and to maintain the loss over the long term, dieticians recommend that you attempt to drop no more than
half a kg a week (anything more will require a doctor’s supervision). Men are therefore advised to get atleast 1800 calories
per 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 midmorning
or late night snack, may also be included provided the calories are adjusted with the nearest main meal.
Breakfast 400 cals Breakfast 400 cals Menus have been worked out for 300-400 cal. meals.
Lunch 500 cals Mid morning 100 cals Caloric value of average portions of many Indian dishes have

For women, the 1400 cal diet prescription may be similarly
divided as follows:

The 100 Calorie Exchange


Calorie counting becomes very quick and easy when working
with units of 100 calories. The 100 calorie portions of food
listed below are based on average caloric values. They are
useful to gauge quickly the calorie value of a meal.
1 Exchange = 100 cals

CEREALS
Each of the following provides 100 kcal. You can have 6-12 exchanges/
servings each day (depending on age, sex and physical activity).
Rice (cooked) 1 katori
Bread 1½ big or 2 small slices
Rava Upma 1 katori
Chapati 1
Phulkas 2
Puris 4-5
Rice Flakes (Poha) 1 katori
