The food culture in Sri Lanka is amazing. We have a unique cuisine that has long been associated with the cuisine of our country as well as the cuisine of other countries. Like many other sectors, we have a rich heritage on the food side too. But it’s not just the problems that result from eating habits, it’s also the nutritional value and quality of our food. This includes many balanced foods that greatly affect our health, such as leafy porridge, jasmine, rice, sour thyme, papaya, and vegetable curry. There are plenty of delicious vegetable fruits growing all over the country. And you can find plenty of edible green species too. It is also our heritage that we have avoided the use of sugar for a long time because of the sweet taste of Kitul honey and honey. To begin with. Diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease are the major diseases of the majority of people in Sri Lanka.
These three diseases account for 18.3% of all deaths in the country! Everyone in Sri Lanka has a big stomach. (On the road, you can see that most people have a big stomach.) And now it seems that the people of Sri Lanka as a whole are starting to get bigger. 25.2% of the population is obese. Iron deficiency, vitamin A deficiency and lack of protein are also problems in many parts of Sri Lanka. This is especially so in children. So if the food is good in our country then why is this? No matter how many nutritious and quality foods we eat, there are serious flaws in the way we eat them. We are now going to tell you about some of the bad habits that are causing our health, even though we have so much to eat.
How to Eat Rice When eating rice, our average plateau rate is 15 parts of rice, 2 parts of vegetables, 2 parts of meat, and 1 of fish. This is wrong. Not only that, but we do this kind of thing every time we eat rice. So the result is that our body is absorbing too many carbohydrates to no avail. There is another big health problem that we are accustomed to eating in this way. It’s white rice. According to the British Medical Journal, frequent consumption of white rice can increase the risk of type 2 diabetes. This is because they have concluded that the white glycemic value is very high. Some people say that our people have been eating rice for generations. Yes, that’s true, but every morning? There is a big difference in caloric intake between a farmer who is struggling and who goes to the office in the morning.
If you eat too much, you will get sick. If we love to eat rice and eat it later in the hospital, then try reducing the amount of rice and fish to increase your intake of vegetables and meat.
As we have already said, the amount of carbohydrates we eat as Sri Lankans is very high. Just think, we eat a different kind of flour, even though we don’t eat rice for a meal. We mainly buy bread, kottu bread, string hoppers, hoppers, manioc, bread, pitta, bread. Research shows that 71.2% of the calories people consume in Sri Lanka are from carbohydrates. The remaining 18.9% is fat. Only 10.8% of the calories are derived from protein. This ratio is by no means compatible. The main cause of diabetes in Sri Lanka is flour and not sugar.
Due to the lack of diversity in food, there are so many different types of food to eat, that we are not planning our meals properly so that we can get the right food on time. Despite the importance of having a balanced diet from an early age, we always eat foods that have no balance. An examination of the link between low diet and diabetes in Sri Lanka has found that 5% of the participants had only a few servings of flour throughout the day. The only thing that can be done is to increase your blood glucose.
Sri Lanka is one of the highest producers of fruits and vegetables in the country. (Considering the current price of vegetables, the economic situation is a clear indication of this). Even the tea we all drink contains more sugar than milk.
