Ludhiana, July 29 Proteins are an important part of our diet but sadly people tend to ignore this important ingredient.

While busting the most popular myth that proteins should not be taken in dinner, she said: “One can have proteins in dinner. There is nothing that prevents one from having daal or egg or chicken in dinner. The only thing to be kept in mind is that one should not go off to sleep soon after taking dinner loaded with proteins. There should be a gap of at least 2-3 hours between dinner and sleep time. If one is cautious on this, then there is nothing wrong in having proteins in dinner.” Raminder said a normal adult should have 60 grams of proteins per day. “Having proteins post workout is very good for the body, as it helps in repairing the wear and tear of the body during workout.

One can have a few almonds, milk along with a cereal or eggs. Having oats is the perfect way to start the day,” she adds.

It was found that Indians suffer from a significant protein inadequacy with 73 per cent of Indians consuming diet being protein deficient. The most protein deficiency was found among vegetarians with an alarming 84 per cent. Contrary to the popular belief, what is interesting is that not all non-vegetarian diets ❞ provide adequate protein, as 65 per cent of the Indian non-vegetarian diets were found to be deficient in prescribed levels of protein as well. Another citybased clinical nutritionist Deepti Vohra said: “Proteins are an essential part of the diet. Nails and hair are mostly made of proteins. The body also uses proteins for building and repairing tissues. One should try including a source of protein like egg or yogurt in breakfast along with highfibre grain whole wheat toast.
