Guidelines about eating
Dr KK Aggarwal | 06 Sep 2013

In this context, the Heart Care Foundation of India has formulated guidelines about eating said Padma Shri and Dr B C Roy National Awardee Dr KK Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India and MTNL Perfect Health Mela. These include:

Malnutrition and wrong dietary habits have been identified as major risk factors for ill health, including heart attacks. Most people below the poverty line suffer from malnutrition due to lack of calories, proteins and vitamins in their food. In the affluent society, overeating or eating wrong food leads to overnutrition, a form of malnutrition leading to heart blockages.

 In this context, the Heart Care Foundation of India has formulated guidelines about eating said Padma Shri and Dr B C Roy National Awardee Dr KK Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India and MTNL Perfect Health Mela. These include:

 1.    Eat only when you are hungry.

2.   Do not eat for pleasure, social obligations or emotional satisfaction.

3.   Eat at a slow pace.

4.   Eat less; dinner less than lunch.

5.  Take small mouthfuls each time, chew each morsel well, swallow it and only then take the next morsel.

6.  Do not eat while watching television, driving a car or watching sports events. The mind is absorbed in these activities and one does not know what and how much one has eaten.

7.  Do not talk while eating and never enter into heated arguments. The stomach has ears and can listen to the conversation. It will send signals accordingly to the mind and heart.

8.  Plan and decide in advance what and how much you are going to eat.

9.  Use low fat or skimmed mild dairy products. For cooking, use oils which are liquid at room temperature.

10.  Do not take red meat, if you are a non-vegetarian. You may take poultry meat or fish.
