Advice from Nutritionist Khan
Don’t skip breakfast, eat small but regular meals throughout the day, and a healthy well balanced dinner. This is the advice from Suhail Khan, nutritionist in Den Haag, Rotterdam and in Amsterdam who published the book “Voeding & Gezondheid bij Hindostanen” in 2012. This initiative was supported by “CZ Fonds”. “The reactions to the book have been outstanding,” says Khan.
He wrote the book because many South Asians and especially South Asians in the Netherlands are affected by obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease. Khan is especially aware of this thanks to his extensive work experience in different hospitals, where he dealt with a lot of diabetic patients. “Many people have breakfast early in the morning and eat big meals in the evening. It is especially important for young people in particularly to know how to prevent these diseases. They need to know how food affects their bodies and what they should be eating.”
