AVOID FAT ADDITIVES.
Fat is a major component of India diet. It is a deep-rooted belief in India households that one cannot prepare meals without oil, but with taste intact.

Oil is not only used in cooking buy it is also added to the food from the top. some examples of oil/fat additives are as under.
– Many people eat chapati by applying ghee on both sides. They of chapati is already giving 100 calories and when 2 teaspoons of ghee applied on it. it will not improve the taste but will increase the calorie of the chapati (A chapati of 100 calories then provides 200 calories).
– People also have a tendency to eat pizza by applying cheese on it. According to them, pizza cannot be prepared without cheese. One small sized pizza base is approximate of 75gm then it will provide 260 calories. After applying 25gm of cheese, the calories will go up drastically. If you apply 25gm of cheese it will add to 90 calories. Vegetable topping will also contribute to some calories. 100gm of vegetables account for an additional 200 calories.
It means, if you eat one full pizza it will give you 370 calories. Therefore, you must eat pizza without cheese only increase fat but does not contribute much to taste.
– Nowadays, it is usually seen that in parties or in marriages, soups are served as an appetizer. In most of these soups, the cream is added as a topping. Though soup is low calories, adding cream to it only serves to increase the calories.
– Dal batter, a Rajasthani dish, is very common in Rajasthan. It is a very heavy dish. A lot of ghee is added in its preparation that adds to calories.–
– Many people drink buttermilk(chhach) as a low-calorie beverage but at the same time, they increase its fat content by adding fatty scum(malai) as a topping on it.
Therefore, people have to change their mindset by understanding that they are unnecessarily consuming fat, which only increases their risk of fat-related diseases, but does not contribute much to taste.
