Hyderabad: According to the survey, South India marginally trumps the North with a six per cent higher average calorie burn per day. South Indians burn 408 calories on an average daily and North Indians burn around 382 calories daily. South Indians take more than 4,300 steps on an average day, which is slightly higher than the 4,200 taken by North Indians on an average.

We used to say that rice eaters don’t put on weight but majority of rice is converted into fat by insulin in our body. Dr K.J. Reddy of the Apollo Hospitals says, “In North India they put on weight though they don’t eat rice because they eat food with high calorific value. Though it’s a healthy diet it has more oil and high calorific value. They eat more of fat and protein. Weather also a plays a role in spending our energy. In North India places are too hot or too cold. If the weather is too cold the activity is very limited and in turn energy expenditure is less as they stay indoors. In South India weather permits round-the-year travel.”

 

“Those who spend most time indoors have the tendency to put on weight and those who spend most of their time outdoors have less of a tendency to put on weight,” Mr Reddy said.
