Diet to lose weight/control sugars

- Increase ghee/butter/lard
- Stop jaggery/sugar as much as possible
- Reduce carbohydrates from rice, ragi, jowar, wheat (including all millets)
- Increase consumption of red meats/poultry (with skin), fish, eggs, milk/dairy (full fat) (1)
- Increase consumption of vegetables/sprouts
- Not more than one fruit a day
- Avoid tea/coffee/milk one hour before and after food
- Have lime juice with food and also at other times
- Eat when hungry. Try to give longer fasting gaps between meals (Avoid snacks) (2)
- Eggs two a day (at least 4-5 times a week)
- Cut down to stop safflower/sunflower/bran oil etc. Use olive oil only for salads, not in high flame/high temperature cooking. Use coconunt oil/ butter/ ghee/lard for cooking.

This is not a replacement for medical treatment (3)
Diversity comes from addition of foods from different food groups like legumes and pulses, eggs, milk and dairy, fruits and vegetables, meat and poultry, fats and oils, cereals and millets. You shouldn’t get all your nutritional requirements only from one food group
Calorie intake from carbohydrates can be maximum around 50% of total requirement (can be less also), 30% or more from fats and oils & 15-20% or more from proteins.

One gram each of carb gives 4 calories/ protein 4 calories/ fat 9 calories

"Yes, digitalisation is an important aspect of making the system more accountable and responsive to people’s needs, but it cannot replace a robust, egalitarian, evidence-based and comprehensive healthcare system altogether."…
"The elderly woman who has a diabetic ulcer and is unable to buy her medicines and who hasn’t received her rations or her pension is the sort of person the government needs to be looking out for. But she may just become another statistic in India’s rush for digital gold."
The need of the hour today is not a revamp of the system but to strengthen existing systems, taking into account gaps that the COVID-19 pandemic & subsequent lockdowns have laid bare. We can’t afford to ignore daily images of people dying due to lack of access to basic facilities

Privilege is when you can put up happy pictures of yourself with your fave food without the underlying fear that you will be lynched.
Privilege is when you can love someone without being beheaded for it
Privilege is when you can turn the video on for online classes, and not be ashamed of how your house looks in the background

(no its not due to envy)
On average more adolescents are poorer in those northern states than in the southern..........hmm maybe the elected members should focus on development more than communalism??

Civil Society and Indigenous Peoples’ Mechanism (CSM) for relations with the UN Committee has also called for mobilisation to challenge the Summit and reclaim people’s sovereignty over food systems. (2)
"One of the important concerns raised was the involvement of the WEF & the appointment of the President of the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA), as the Special Envoy for the summit, given AGRA is also an alliance that promotes the interests of agribusiness. " (3)
