Whether you fret constantly about counting how many calories you consume or how many you are supposed to, but do not, here is some news : The Indian Food Atlas is here to help you do just that.
It has described at least 200 commonly- eaten Indian foods, drawn from across the subcontinent. So what does a food atlas do? It provides you an estimation of how much one eats, and how many calories are packed into every portion.
Why an atlas now? From chronic under- nutrition, India has moved to a stage where about 30- 40 per cent of the population are estimated to be suffering from over- nutrition, says V. Mohan, chairman, Dr. Mohan’s Diabetes Specialties Centre ( DMDSC).

The Dr. Mohan’s Atlas of Indian Foods is an innovative and first of its kind in India that features more than 200 foods eaten across regions in various portion sizes along with main nutritional values. Indian diets continue to be meal based and the foods in the atlas were chosen to include the most commonly consumed choices in the 3 main meals namely breakfast, lunch and dinner. It also includes other foods such as animal foods, snacks, fruits, nuts, beverages and sweets. The colorful pictures, a visual treat representing commonly consumed foods and their nutritional impact in terms of its energy, macronutrients and dietary fibre are given below the picture for better comprehension.
