If the thought of fitness food makes you pull a long face, you might change your expression to a happy one, after reading fitness food expert Chef Sushil Dwarkanath’s blog on it. “The significance of fitness food is in healthy eating and not merely dieting. Thinking that a fitness regimen is all about dieting is wrong,” says Dwarkanath, HOD, Hotel Management, Christ University, Bangalore.
Fitness food primarily focuses on a proper and balanced diet, which has the right amount of nutrients. Since generally people consume too much carbohydrates, it is the first thing they eliminate the moment they start dieting without caring to know what to eat in what proportions. Enter Kenocal, an online kitchen guide started by Roshan Vijay in 2012 that Dwarkanath took forward. “Kenocal offers personalized nutrition plans according to the requirements of the user. You are requested to enter details like body metrics and food preferences, and then you are directed to the Diet Planner where you can add food stuff from a proposed menu to your diet. It shows the calorie values of the food items, and helps you plan a diet chart. Everyone has a different body type and thus requires different diet,” he explains.
Dwarkanath, formerly a chef with the Taj group, reveals, “With today’s lifestyles, few people cook. Supermarkets are flooded with ready-to-eat food packets. That is why I am spreading the word about good food, organic cooking, farm to fork, seasonal produce and food sustainability,” he says.
According to him, many times people do not know how to use protein creatively and usually end up eating plain boiled egg white or chicken. By applying a little thought and using various other ingredients or cooking methods, it’s not difficult to put together a healthy menu which has proper nutrition content and tastes and looks good. Dwarkanath is also particular about including seasonal food into the menu, and cooking from scratch. No shortcuts, he warns.
