Well, I don't think this is restricted to Indians. Western tourists are astounded by the blocks long queues in Tianamen Square to get into McDonalds. As for Westerners eating "nutritious' Indian (or Chinese, or Thai, or Mongolian, or Afghan) food, these are not necessarily what is served in those countries but is adjusted for Western tastes, and may not always be quite so nutritious as one would expect.

I don't know that I've ever tried Indian foods, but I do like nutritious foods. I know the image of Western people is that we are all unhealthy and materialistic and that makes me sad because most of the opinions about Western culture is taken from movies. But as for your question Westerners love to eat Indian Foods, in my area we don't even know what Indian Foods are.

sudheervm, I dont know anything about what Indians want in regard to'diet but most Americans want to eat A healthy balanced diet of meat, eggs, milk, veggies, whole grains, fruits with the emphasis on lot of veggies and fruits and whole grains. of course some Americans love their fast food but that is a small percentage of the rest of us and I for one resent the idea that we have an non nutritious diet as its so patently false. Dont judge all Americans by just a few people and dont judge your own people by just a few people. in fact dont judge.

I think that the reason because people all over the world are eating junk instead of the wonderful food that they used to prepare in every country is because fast food chains sell their products with commercials and gifts. Besides that, people have now less time to cook at home or to eat there so they eat where is unexpensive near their work. About a month ago, I went to the doctor and had to take some tests without breakfast. Down the street I saw a Kentucky fried chicken with some wonderful pictures of the hamburgers and very low prices. I bought one. It had NOTHING to do with the picture.. In my country we used to eat very well. Chile has a mild climate so even if poor people did not all have shoes, all ate well. Until fast food and french fries came. They are expensive and bad for your health. When I was little we only had soft drinks for birthdays. Now every child drinks a lot of coca cola or other drinks that will make them addict and obese. By the way, western includes many countries and cultures. Happy posting!
