       SWAMI VIVEKANAND

• “First of all, young men must be strong.
  Religion will come later. You will be nearer
  to heaven through football, than through
  the study of Gita. You will understand Gita
  better with your biceps, your muscles, a
  little stronger. What we want is vigor in the
  blood, strength in nerves, iron muscles
  and nerves of steel.”
        Diet                 Health
             Linked to each other
If we want to fulfill the dream of Swami Vivekanand ,
   we will have to educate our people regarding what
      to eat to build a nation of strong and healthy
                           citizens.

Good Diet                      Good Health

  Bad Diet                      Bad Health

 Bad Health                  Weak Nation

1 If we put diesel or kerosene in our motor-cycle/scooter it will not
  work properly.
2 In construction of a building
    (1) Sand (2) cement (3) Steel (4) Water should be in proper
        proportion
    If not, you know what will happen……
    Same way to run body engine properly we should put patrol (Good
        Food) or if we consider our body as a building – all the
        ingredients should be in proper (right) proportion.

    It is very simple……..

    We are, what we eat.
    We become, what we eat .
    We will be, what we eat .
              EAT RIGHT TYPE OF FOOD
  EAT FOOD HAVING VERY GOOD NUTRITION THAT MAKES
         US SRTONG,HEALTHY AND BEAUTIFUL.

Before we go further let’s have a look at some news items

  Indians are ranked among the lowest on health
  standards in the world!
WHAT IS WRONG WITH INDIANS
            ?
More News…..

 Heart-Disease/
 Diabetes.’
WHAT IS WRONG WITH US?
If you remember, 30 to 35 years back, before starting a
movie there used to be a news-reel by government in all
cinema halls for creating awareness for health, we were
advised to eat more vegetables for good health. There
were hoardings showing benefit of using vegetables.
For many years this thing went on and on….
The Result !!
Use of vegetables increased 600 to 800 percent in
last 35 to 40 years.
Even than, disease like diabetes, blood pressure,
heart disease increased in the same proportion !!
               WHY ?
    Something is grossly wrong…..
            WHAT ????

GREATEST MYTH OF THE CENTURY
 “EAT MORE VEGETABLES & YOU
    WILL BECOME HEALTHY”.
First…
Let us understand the origin of this concept of eating
more vegetables for good health.
Around 50 to 60 years back, in western countries, they
noticed that diseases like BP/Diabetes/Heart and
gastrointestinal problems were rising alarmingly.
So the medical science & health experts started to study
the cause of this rise. After extensive study and research
work they found that the cause of all these disorders
were, the absence of enough Fiber, Vitamins, Minerals in
the diet of western people.
So they were looking for the food stuff which contains
Fiber, Vitamins, Minerals in good amount. They found
their answer in Vegetables.
So, they included vegetables in their diet and increased
the use.
The Result…. Was very good and they benefited
immensely by using more of vegetables in their diet !
We imported the concept of eating more vegetables
in our country from the West and every body started to
talk about eating more vegetables and the benefit of
more fiber, vitamins, minerals.
Indian government also spent Crores of Rupees for
advertisement and educating people regarding benefits
of vegetables.
The Result…..
Now everybody knows that vegetables are good for
health.
And production of vegetables increased by
whooping 600% to 800% in past 40 years!!
But….., all the major disorders also increased in
the same proportion 600% to 800% in past 40
years!!
Western countries benefited by the use of vegetables.
But not our country… WHY?
To get the answer let’s have a look at the diet habit of
Western Countries and India, 50/60 years back.
(A)


               Western Countries                    India
 Breakfast     Tea/Juise/Milk/Cereals/   Tea/Milk/Roti(Bhakari)/Rotla/
               Eggs/ Sausages/Ham/       Paratha/Achar/Ghee
               Bread/Cheese
 Lunch         Sandwich-Salami/       Roti/Sabji/Dal/ Rice
               Beef/Ham/Cheese/Chicke
               n /egg
 Dinner        Bread/Rice-               Paratha/Roti/Rotla/Pulses-
               Chicken/Fish/Beef/Ham/    Beans-Dal.
               Mutton/Beans etc.

                       Rich In                      Poor In
 West. Diet    Protein/Fat/Carb./Iron      Fiber/Vitamins/Minerals



 Indian Diet   Carb./Fibre/Minerals/Fat    Protein/Vitamins



(C) If you add vegetables to both diet

  West.Diet    Protein/Fat/Carb./Iron/
               (Fibre/Vitamins/Minerals)   Balanced Diet
 Indian Diet   Carb./Fibre/Minerals/Fat.
                                           Lack of Protein,
               (Fiber+Vitamins+Minerals
               )                           Vitamins, Iron ect.
                              WHAT WENT WRONG?
•   We Imported this concept of eating more vegetables to improve our
    health from western countries without looking at the diet habits of
    our people. And in doing so, unfortunately the most important source of
    nutrition for us – DAL-LEGUMES-BEANS slowly got replaced by
    vegetables- the food stuff having very poor nutritional value!!!

•   BEANS-DAL-LEGUMES ARE VERY RICH SOURCE OF PROTEIN, CALCIUM,
    PHOSPHORUS, IRON, VIT-A, B1,B2,B3 , FOLIC ACID, MINERALS , WHICH ARE
    REQUIRED FOR A STRONG AND HEALTHY BODY.

•   This way we ignored THE KING OF NUTRITION and it got replaced by
    vegetables- having very poor nutritional value in our diet. It is taking a very
    heavy toll on the health of our people and our country. It is a crime against
    nation to advise a person to eat a food stuff having no nutritional value.

•   “EAT BEANS-DAL-LEGUMES TO STAY HEALTHY AND FIT”-
    should be the slogan for our nation.
1. Heart disease in Muslim Community 23.6/1000
  Heart disease in Non-Muslim Community 51.5/1000
2. Percentage of infant death is very high in Hindu
community compared to Muslim and Christian

3. Percentage of diabetes is more than double in
vegetarians    compared    to non.vegetarians.

                  Importance of Protein
          Proteins are required for maintenance (Replacing the wear and
tear in tissues) in adults, for growth in children, for fetal development
during pregnancy and milk output during lactation
        Proteins are the important constituent of tissues and cells of the
body. They form the important component of muscles and other tissues
and vital body fluids like blood. Proteins supply the body building
material and make good the loss that occur due to wear and tear.
Protein as antibodies helps the body to defend against infections.
Children require more protein per unit body weight because of new
tissues which are being laid down during growth are largely built from
amino acids drawn from the dietary proteins.
        Thus Proteins are very vital to the living process and carry out a
wide range of functions essential for the sustenance of life.
        So proteins are one of the most important nutrient required by
the body and should be taken in proper amounts in our diet.
All the values are per 100 gms. of edible portion.

•
•           Vegetables                                Legumes/Beans
•   1.Requires lots of water to grow              1. Require much less water to grow
•   2.Use of Chemical fertilizers                 2. Less fertilizer-improves soil
•   3.Indiscriminate use of highly                3. Almost no pesticides are used.
•    Poisonous pesticides.
    4.Harmful colors & chemicals used for         4.Very long shelf life. Chemicals not
     good look & to increase shelf life.            Required.
    5.Waste of energy for storage.                5.No energy consumption to store.
    6.Huge burden on transport system.            6.Daily transportation not required.
•    Daily transportation-Air pollution &           Saves fuel-no air pollution-Less
•    high diesel consumption takes it’s toll         burden on transport system.
•    on our oil import bill & environment.          Eco friendly.
•   7.Very poor nutritional value-so high cost.    7.Very high nutritional value- King
•                                                    of nutrition-so very cheap.
• PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE.
• Today we are almost at par with the world in creating the infrastructure
  required for treating diseases and surgery. Unfortunately we have not done
  enough for prevention and whatever little we are doing is not in the right
  direction .. Today everybody is aware about the problem of malnutrition
  [even in the rich community] in our country. But there is no clarity in
  addressing the problem. The solution is so simple and can be implemented
  without huge spending. Efforts to change the diet habits of our people , and
  educate them to eat Beans-Dal-Legumes daily in enough quantity are
  required on a war footings.
• A nationwide drive through all media is required to educate people to include
  THE KING OF NUTRITION [BEANS-LEGUMES-DAL] in enough quantity in
  the daily diet.
• Daily dose regarding benefits of using beans/legumes and cutting down on
  vegetables intake will gradually make people understand to include the
  nutrition rich food in their diet. It is more economical , environment friendly
  more healthy than vegetables.
  BEWARE OF VESTED INTERESTS
• Organizations and people with vested interest will try to stop the
  spread of this idea using their political and financial muscle.
• We will have to fight against it for the benefit of our nation and
  people.
• If properly implemented, this simple idea will change the health
  map of our country and in the long run will save thousands of
  crores of rupees used for the treatment of lifestyle related
  disorders. Increase the work efficiency of our people, save
  water , improve the quality of the soil , decrease the use of
  poisonous pesticides , by saving of diesel-petrol will save the
  foreign exchange and will have positive impact on environment
  health and economy.
