Though sweet corn is a good source of fiber, low in fat and helps control appetite, considering that it is a vegetable it has more calories than other fiber rich veggies, so restrict usage for weight loss. So given a choice it is wise to opt for other veggies firstRead the article is sweet corn healthy?

Capsicum (Bell Peppers, red, green and yellow capsicum) : Rich in vitamin Ccapsicum protects and maintains the lining of the heart. Low glycemic index (40) colourful capsicum are immune boosters. Colourful capsicums (red, green and yellow capsicum) are not only visually appealing but also good for your eyes too, as they contain antioxidant Lutein, which protects the eye from cataracts and degeneration of the eye.

What's the problem ?

Processed cheese issues.  Processed cheese is high in calories, fat, and lots of sodium. It often contains artificial ingredients, such as emulsifiers and preservatives. These ingredients can cause inflammation in the body. Processed cheese is often low in nutrients. It is a good source of calcium, but it is low in other important nutrients, such as protein, fibre, and vitamins.

Negative effects of processed cheese.

  1. Heart disease risk. Processed cheese is high in saturated fat, which can increase your risk of heart disease.
  2. High blood pressure. Processed cheese is high in sodium, which can contribute to high blood pressure.
  3. Not good for weight loss and diabetics : Processed cheese is high in calories, so eating too much of it can lead to weight gain.
  4. Keep your kids away from cheap processed cheese and buy higher quality cheese.

Fresh Cream : 1 tbsp of Amul fresh cream (15 gm) provides around 37 calories, out of which 34 calories are from fat (22 calories result from saturated fat), 2 calories from carbs and 1 calorie from protein. Till late, saturated fat was always looked upon as that evil fat which would lead to high cholesterol levels and strokes. Offhand, studies have revealed no such association. In fact, fats will keep you full for a long time and avoid bingeing and weight gain. However, the proportion of cream and the way you use them in cooking is of great importance to maintain your waistline. You can add about a tsp of fresh cream once in a while to your meals, especially coffee, to enhance the taste. Moreover, the use of cream cuts down on bitterness of the coffee, so you won’t add any sugar to your coffee. Addition of sugar will anyways cause more harm to your body. But, try not to add fresh cream in bulk frequently. Also remember that with any kind of diet to stay fit and healthy, you need to follow a good exercise plan on a daily basis.
