How many calories are there in something?

Below, we have given you information about which food items are found in what amount of calories. So that next time you do not consume these things in large quantities and if possible, avoid these things as much as you can-
calorie per gram

Different cultures and their respective cuisine:

There are many different cultures around the world. Based on these cultures, food is also found in abundance. Because of this, with the variation of place and time, we have a wide variety of foods today, some of which we like to eat very much and some do not like to eat at the same time. Before swallowing food, we chew it very well, at this time some creative processes take place, which is very important to know. It is described below,

Chewing process and five main flavors:

We go through the process of chewing food, eating almost every food item. When we put food in the mouth, the saliva present in the mouth along with the food divides this food into small particles so that the digestive system present in our body can digest it easily. These tiny particles start moving towards the papilla of the tongue located in our mouth, the upper part of our tongue is filled with this papilla. A papillae has at least 50 and maximum 100 test cells. These test cells are folded together. They are composed in such a way that petals are seen in flowers. This is called test buds. A healthy human tongue has about 10,000 test buds. Some special chemicals are present in it, which are useful for understanding the five basic flavors. These five flavors are: salty, sweet, sour, bitter and umami. The word umami is derived from a Japanese word, which is related to Slavery taste.

Human evolution and taste:

To understand this fact, we need to know some special things in the history of India about 3 million years ago. At this time man had not made any such weapons, so that he could kill animals and eat their flesh. Therefore, at this time, he had to eat his fruits, dry fruits, vegetables etc. to satisfy his hunger. At this time, man needed more energy to survive. Therefore, they needed to find such foods which had high calorie content. So that they can get more energy. The thing to note is that 1 gram of fat gives up to 9 calories and 1 gram of carbohydrate is just 4 calories. Although carbohydrate is an essential element for the body, because the body is able to absorb this element the fastest.

Later, when humans learned to hunt animals due to the introduction of different tools and weapons, they needed more energy at this time. At this time they had various fruits and honey for energy. Due to having more carbohydrates in sweets, these foods could get more carbohydrates, so it was very good for living. Because of this, our test buds developed in such a way that these tastes could give a pleasant feeling to humans whenever humans ate such things. Therefore, they used to give positive signals to our brain on the eating of these things, which made the brain understand that this food item is beneficial for the body. Hence, our test buds also evolved in such a way that they could react negatively to sour things. In the same way, while eating any bitter thing, it used to give these signals to our brain, that this thing can also negatively affect the body and health. In fact, during the Stone Age, some berries were actually such that their taste was sour or bitter. Because of this, these test buds developed so that they could give negative feedback on such tests.

So now our body has become such that it reacts positively to such sweet and salty things, because such tastes were very important for survival for a long time. But the thing to note is that now we do not need as much energy for living as it used to be 3 million years ago. Therefore, now our body is not able to burn the fat and fat made from such foods, due to which many types of diseases start happening to humans.

In the same way our test buds react negatively to today's immediate healthier things, as they are bitter in taste. Therefore, our brain gets a signal that these bitter things can also be poisonous. So nowadays people try to run away from all these healthy things.

What kind of mines to avoid?

Different people have to avoid different types of mines, such as the one who has diabetes cannot eat sweet, but others can eat. But there are some things which need to be avoided. Like pizza, burgers sold in the market, all kinds of fried things etc. Although all of them are better in taste, they are more calorie. Which invites the obesity in our body. Therefore, we should avoid such mines.

Why different people have different choices?

A question also arises as to why different people like different things in food. For example, some people like sweets very much and some people run away from it. The reason for this is that human development happened simultaneously in different places of the world. The geographical location and environment of these different places were different, which humans here used to adapt for their survival. Because of this, the people living in a place with more bitter fruits adapted this taste better than those who lived in a place with less bitter fruits. In a research, it was found that people who live in places with malaria, they are found to have a gene that makes them less sensitive to bitter taste. Also, due to gene pool crossing, our test buds have started responding to different tastes. Because of this, bitter things are the favorite of some people and some people are disliked.

So now, keeping in mind our health, if we have to eat such things which are bitter in taste, then we need to eat. Green herb vegetables, which are generally not very tasty, but are very beneficial for the body. Therefore, we should keep eating green vegetables.
