Our data shows us that Tamil Nadu stands at 7th place when it comes to consumption of carbs.
However, when we compare the top eight cities in the country we can see that Chennai is leading the pack. This is because the primary source of food in the city is rice. Besides, the staple meals comprising of idlis, dosas, sambar-rice, and curd rice, add to the high consumption of carbohydrates in the city.
HealthifyMe Data tells us that Chennai, amongst the top 8 cities in India, is on the lower side when it comes to consumption of fruits and vegetables.
This mix of high consumption of carbohydrates and low consumption of fruits and vegetables in Chennai puts its residents at a risk of diabetes and obesity.
