This is about: information on the number of calories in a packaged food which alerts consumers regarding the load they are going to ADD to their bodies. The new research at Boston suggests that informing users about the number of brisk walking hours they need to spend for spending the calories contained in that particular food, will awaken them for a preventive action. They will automatically regulate the intake of food, keeping in mind the number of hours of exertion required.

#147 20 Assorted MCQs on Medical Terms


Imperial College, London's research seems to suggest that we should eat nine meals a day, if we are to cut cholesterol and lose weight!  Research by University of Athens on 2000 children, too seems to support the idea of many small meals a day.

But the Indian traditional science of health and longevity (called 'AyurvEda') has the following Sanskrit maxim: 'Eka bhuktE mahA yogi, dvi bhuktE mahA bhOgI, tribhuktE mahA rOgI'.

English, approximate equivalent: One who eats once a day is a great sage.  One who eats twice a day, is a connoisseur and epicurean.  One who eats thrice a day is a diseased person.

Additional notes:  Eating few times a day, does not mean, that we should load our belly, like a jute sac, with food stuffs.  Ayurveda prescribes a limit: Half of stomach's volume should go for food, another one fourth water and the remaining one fourth must accommodate air.  It means, we can only half-fill our stomach.
