Cancer is a broad term that describes disease that occurs when cell changes cause cells to grow and divide uncontrollably. A cell is instructed to die so the body can replace it with a newer, better-functioning cell. Cancer cells lack the components that tell them to stop dividing and die. As a result, they accumulate in the body, using oxygen and nutrients that would normally nourish other cel...
Some time ago I started surfing the net in search of calories contained in the food I ate. Unfortunately, while there is a great deal of information on continental food eaten in the West, there is not much information on the typical Indian diet. After digging through many different sources, I was finally able to gather some basic data. They may not all be absolutely accurate, but they will help you calculate the calorie content of your food better than before.
And as everyone who follows a diet and exercise regimen knows that the better the calculation, the faster the weight loss will be. Quite often, the calories from exercise can be counted with great precision, as gym machines give them to us in no uncertain terms, but those found in food can be a major nuisance, as the person eating the food you must calculate them individually. This is where errors occur, as the calorie average is not always correct in all cases.
Here are some food items and the calories they are likely to contain. You can use this to make your daily food diary. The reason you need to write down everything you eat is so you don’t make the mistake of thinking that you are eating less than you actually eat. And believe me, most of us tend to think that we have eaten less than we actually have. It’s only when you start journaling that this trend becomes obvious.

This is all I have managed to gather so far. It has most of what I would eat, so I’m happy with the list. It is somewhat lacking in the content of South Indian food, but as soon as I find a good resource, I will update this article. Naturally, it is not as comprehensive as it can be. Especially since there is a great variety of Indian food. However, I hope it helps you.
