An average American consumes 120 Kg of meat , and 63 Kilos of wheat per year. An average Pakistani consumes just 20 kilos of meat and 130 Kilos of wheat per year. The apparent low consumption of meat and very high consumption of wheat in Pakistan is due to our dietary habits which comprises of "Roti Salan". For an American a bowl full of meat balls can be dinner , but a Pakistani will never eat a bowl of "Koftay" on it's own . It will have to be accompanied by two three roti. Being the largest consumer per capita of wheat, we get out main nutrition from wheat . Meat contains 52% proteins and about 15% fats , and wheat has about 28% proteins and 3% fat , but with the added benefit of high quantity of carbohydrates which meat lacks. Carbohydrates are the main source of energy for the body. For a Pakistani, his roti is the main source of proteins . Requirements of fats is met by consuming milk and dairy, in which Pakistan ranks 4th in the world in both production and consumption. Then the amount of oil we use while cooking is also much higher than western countries. That too is our source of fats. Overall we are not doing too bad in meeting our dietary needs. It's just that the composition of our food is different from developed countries. Although it may be pointed out that we Pakistanis as a matter of habit don't eat much fish and fruit. Fruit is consumed mainly in the month of Ramazan and Fish is a few times an year delicacy. We will benefit from increasing the consumption of sea food as a source if proteins, fats and other nutrients, and fruits as dietary supplement for Vitamins.
