FOOD is an integral part of any culture. Just like customs, language and even climate, from country to country, the food varies vastly.

Company Shake That Weight has delved deeper into national dishes, looking at which dishes are unhealthy. From icy terrains to dry desert climes, below are the worst offenders that’ll ruin your healthy eating plan.

Looking at which national dishes have the most calories, carbs, fat, sugar, salt and protein, these countries will ruin your healthy eating, Langham – the national dish in Kyrgyzstan, contains 1424 calories. This pulled noodle, meat and vegetable dish contains 71 per cent of a woman’s recommended caloric daily intake and 57 per cent of a man’s.

Shake That Weight has also analysed one of the UK’s favourite dishes, fish and chips, and it seems the traditional meal does not compare too unfavourably. At 688 calories it less than half those of Langham and less than 50 per cent of a daily allowance. The dish does fall down on fat, however, containing around 26 grams, 37 per cent of a person’s daily allowance.
