suprising fact!

Malaysia has the highest obesity rate in Southeast Asia and is ranked sixth in the Asia-Pacific region, the house heard yesterday.

WOhooo..1st place in Asia? biar bile memikirkan cara permakanan rakyat malaysia, orang melayu rase mmg berpotensi untuk mengalami masalah obesiti. Contohnya..cuba kite tgk mknn rutin org Malaysia setiap hari...:-

breakfast: roti canai telur/Nasi Lemak + teh susu...
brunch: nescafe 3+1 + cookies..
lunch: nasi berlauk + air sirap..(mungkin ade sayur or lauk yg bersantan)/ Boleh jd MC D, KFC
Tea Time: Pisang Goreng + Kuih Muih + Kopi panas..
Dinner: nasi berlauk..

Hmmm..nmpak x? Betapa berlemak & bergulanya semua itu. Nafsu...nafsu. Schedule mkn sy plak lain..

breakfast: jarang..kdg2 mkn biskut wheatmeal + air kosong or yougurt ke..(wlpun tau,breakfast elok utk kesihatan...)
brunch: x mkn ape..minum air kosong jer..
lunch: jarang mkn nasi, suke mkn yg light2 mcm bihun ker. Klu amik nasi, suka lauk kari ayam or kurma (ohh..lemak..lemak...) n_ limau ais..
Tea Time: Kdg2 mkn pisang (lemak lg...) goreng..or jambu batu + air kosong..
dinner: mkn apple ker...mkn milo crunch or kellogs's special K + low fat milk..(ehh..mcm mknn org diet jer ekkk....)

Sy jarang buat minuman panas sbb malas nk buat. Minum air kosong pn kadang2 mls jg. selamat kadar gula di situ. Tp still..ade unsur2 berlemak di sana sini....mcm mane tu???

HEALTH CONCERN: More people suffering from diabetes due to being overweight


Malaysia has the highest obesity rate in Southeast Asia and is ranked sixth in the Asia-Pacific region, the house heard yesterday.

 Deputy Health Minister Datuk Rosnah Shirlin said this was a cause for concern, considering that three million of the 28 million Malaysians were diagnosed with diabetes, a disease closely associated with obesity.

  It was reported that an overweight, or obese, person had higher risk of getting diabetes, heart attack, high blood pressure as well as  cancer.

  In 2006, the National Health Morbidity Survey found that 43.1 per cent of the adult population were overweight, with 14 per cent of them obese.

  "The number of Malaysians diagnosed with diabetes had increased by two-fold, from 1.5 million in 2006 to about three million now.

"The report will be available by  end of this year," she said to a supplementary question by Salahuddin Ayub (Pas-Kubang Kerian), who  had  asked on the number of diabetic patients in the country and  the measures taken to curb the problem.

  Rosnah said the daily sugar intake among Malaysians was too high, at 51g, which was above the recommendation by the World Health Organisation at 50g.

  "In our  survey  in 2002 to 2003, we found that   Malaysians consume an average seven tablespoons of artificial sweeteners, four tablespoons of sugar and  three spoons of condensed milk in their beverages,"  she said in reply to an earlier question from  Dr Tan Seng Giaw (DAP-Kepong).

  "This is something  we should think together and  promote awareness among the people to  reduce  sugar intake."

  Rosnah said out  of the 1,266 food samples analysed in 2009, 92 samples, or 7.3 per cent, were found to have too much sugar.

  Last year, 2,004 samples were analysed, of which 108 samples, or 5.4 per cent,  had excessive amount of sugar, she said.

  Rosnah said the government was also concerned that many people had yet to go for tests to diagnose and detect diabetic-related health problems.

"We estimate about two million people have not received any treatment for diabetes."
