Malaysian Book of Records


Eating & Drinking for the right reasons

by Jeswan Kaur Jul 11 07

WHEN it comes to eating/drinking it's definitely a case of Malaysia Boleh! Malaysians now top the list as the most overweight in the Asian region. Hold it , before U start celebrating with another round of teh tarik and nasi lemak bungkus ...read on !

An Authority ( not team bsg ) on Malaysian eating habits says many Malaysians enjoy patronising mamak ( Indian Muslim ) stalls and attribute this to the fact that eating habits of Malaysians corresponded with their attitude towards value for money. "Our people eat food that falls under the value for money category and they find that mamak stalls offer meals that are worth the money spent. But what the people fail to realise is that in terms of nutritional value, the food eaten might be over and above what the body needs. "So, the other issue that comes up is the need to educate people on eating healthy which is a challenge because in Malaysia, food is available at every nook and corner," she says. ( you bet )

Know what (& who!) you put in your mouth ! Health Minister Dr Chua Soi Lek early this year cautioned that "affluent" diseases such as diabetes and hypertension were affecting more and more Malaysians and that obesity was the root cause of these diseases. Chua warned that if the trend continued, 12 percent of Malaysians would end up having diabetes by year 2020.

Speaking of diabetes, it was reported in the newspapers recently that about 1,000 canned drinks (obviously they have inadvertently left out TigerCarlsberg) are consumed every minute in Malaysia. If people continue to entertain their sweet tooth, then there is no way the country can prevent obesity from bursting into an epidemic.

There really is no such thing as good or bad food but rather the need to eat correctly, keeping in mind the body's calorie requirements and activity level. "It is alright to have the occasional burger provided you do away with the mayonnaise. Likewise instead of making nasi lemak as a staple meal for breakfast, try healthier alternatives like thosai or chappati. And instead of adding sodium via sour plum powder or soy sauce to our fruits, eat them in their natural state."

Keeping the Malaysian eating habits in mind,our Dear Authority says no less than a revolution is needed to change their mindset and encourage them to eat healthy.
