    I'm currently trying to lose excess body fat and I know that part of it is tweaking my diet to aid weight loss. I've recently turned to more fruits and vegetables. I just thought that if someone who's choosing his or her diet carefully would need to travel to another country, there won't be any problems because fresh produce are always available everywhere. I suppose it comes down to what kind of preparation locals are doing with the healthy produce they buy from farmer's market. I've also heard of turmeric milk and it's benefits but I haven't tried it yet.

    I honestly think that "healthy" foods are the ones that can be made at home. Fast food places, even artificially made ice cream, those are the ones you should avoid. There's an old saying, if there's a commercial for it, then it's probably not natural and healthy for you. There are lots of local cuisines that are absolutely divine, and they give great health benefits too, especially their vegetable meals. Curry, as well as their other spicy food, also have great health benefits, such as weight loss, cancer prevention, and giving you a healthy heart.

    Turmeric in milk is a healthy drink. If you want to lose weight then honey in warm water early in the morning is reported to help. You are right about vegetables and fruits - the more you have them the better it will be for your health. There are countless vegetables and fruits that grow in India.
    There is a word of caution, however. Totally giving up on fats is not recommended. An egg day keeps the doctor away.
