thanks to all members. Yes. the agricultural labour in our neighborhood at Sholinghur do eat idilis served at one rupee apiece or vada at Rs.2 apiece. but they work so hard and their physical exercise makes them healthy I guess. Am also told that they do eat rather cheap non-veg food at cheap prices. My walking was irregular. Just because my family no history of diabetis , I assumed that everything if fine even if I do not walk regularly. Last evening check up after 11 days was ok but am advised to walk for five minutes a day for one week ten minutes a day for the next week and son, within the house.
Only after 100 days or so, am advised to walk for 15 minutes outside. am told mine was a massive block on the main source of supply of blood to the heart.
SUN Sir, you are right. i would eat only in the branded upper middle-class restaurants like Murugan iddli shop while in Chennai. But I do not stay at Chennai. my own house is in a small town called sholinghur. The funny aspect of this town is that it is a temple town, There are 76 kalyana mandapams here booked for all marriage days. The public out here have innovated a method to feast on the wedding food. They would claim to be distant relative of the girl getting married, have breakfast or lunch or even dinner and the vegetarian hotel guys barely make profits. Hence, the oily items are offered at the smaller outfits where they reuse palm oil. Hence, this is dangerous.
Since we had a car we would often visit Chennai and eat in the best of hotels. This luxury is not there at Sholinghur, 110 kms from Chennai.
Anyway, my sincere advise to anyone: pl avoid junk food. But if you have it walk for 5 kms everyday.
