Many of us are very fond of food and #drink. Some people eat Chinese food while some people prefer local food. Some people eat so much that they become obese. They have to date again. Some of us think that low fat foods like #vegetables are the best food for us. While some people believe that a diet that is low in carbohydrates but high in protein, such as chicken, beef, meat, etc., is best for us, the question is, what does science say about it? According to science, every human being has his own genetic setup. Every human being in this world is different from every other human being. Our lifestyle, eating #habits and even #bacteria are different. That is why every human being responds to food in his own way. Affects some people but does not affect others and that is why some people do not become obese by eating too much and some people become obese by eating less.

The best scientists in the world conducted an experiment to solve this problem. The head professor of this experiment was Ian Eleanor, a friend of Iran Sigran. When the level of glucose changes, it is also called blood glucose response. When we eat food, the body digests the carbohydrates in our food, converts the carbohydrates into our body simple sugar and then these sugars are converted into our body blood. My body uses these sugars as a source of #energy. But when blood glucose levels rise, our body makes insulin. The function of insulin is to lower our glucose levels. Insulin signals our #body and our body converts sugar into fat. Sometimes it happens that Our body begins to produce too much insulin which causes all the sugar in our blood to be converted into feed and we start to feel hungry.

Choice of Foodstuff in Healthy Diet:

(a) Digestibility:

Certain articles cannot be digested by human beings. For instance, elastin and cellulose. Hence, they should not be taken into account for calculating the calorific value of that particular food, but the presence of cellulose in the diet to be considered as they give bulk and provide adequate roughage for prevention of constipation.

(b) Age:

An infant before six months does not develop starch-splitting enzymes specially the pancreatic amylase. Hence, starch should be given in moderation before this age.

(c) Habit:

Articles should be selected in such a way that the sub­ject is generally accustomed to it. Unaccustomed diet cannot be easily digested.

(d) Religious and Social Factor:

Certain classes of people and certain religions have certain restrictions on animal proteins,

(e) Cost:

It is need­less to emphasise that the articles should be selected in such a way that the subject can easily afford to buy.

Value of Cooking:

Cooking has certain advantages as well as certain disadvantages.

The advantages are that:

(a) The #food is sterilized,

(b) The food is partly digested (as a result of hydrolysis) and

(c) It is made palatable (which stimulates gastric secretion and thereby digestion). Addition of spices and condiments also serve this purpose.

The disadvantages are:

(a) Some quantity of #vitamin is lost,

(b) A small part of energy of the food (about 5%) is lost.

Hence, to avoid this loss of vitamin by cooking, certain amount of uncooked fresh food should be taken (fruits, green vegetables and milk).
