While busy professionals often skip breakfast and instead indulge in fast food in order to save time, a nutritionist has warned such a habit is unhealthy as fast foods are often high in fat and oil content.
Ambica Sharma, nutritionist, Columbia Asia Hospital, Ghaziabad, shares a list of food items that should be avoided:
- Paranthas dripping with oil or ghee are a big no. Even if you wish to eat them, avoid using excess oil and ghee and have them with curd.
- Poori-Aaloo is a common breakfast for those who stay in hostels. It is not a healthy option. If there is no other choice, use a paper or tissue to soak the excess oil in Pooris.
- Junk food like chips, fried fast food and soft drinks or sweets like candy must be avoided too.
