The more percentages of female subjects were observing fast. The frequency of consuming salads was less among female subjects than male subjects. The majority of the subjects were consuming fruits occasionally. The mean nutrient intake of male subjects compared to RDA was marginally excess (1 %) for protein intake, high (39.12 %) for visible fat intake and deficit (15.89 %) for intake of energy. The mean nutrient intake of female subjects as compared to RDA was deficit for protein and energy intake (10.87 % and 11.83 % respectively).
