Diet and Nutrition

Diet and Nutrition Photo The most well established way for an overweight individual is to lose weight is by focusing on diet and curbing the calories. As populations become more urban and incomes rise, diets high in sugar, fat and animal products replace more traditional diets that were high in complex carbohydrates and fibre. Ethnic cuisine and unique traditional food habits are being replaced by westernised fast foods, soft drinks and increased meat consumption. Homogenisation and westernisation of the global diet has increased the energy density and this is particularly a problem for the poor in all countries who are at risk of both obesity and micronutrient deficiencies.
