Abstract: Across the world, there has been a movement from traditional to modern eating, including a movement of traditional eating patterns from their origin culture to new cultures, and the emergence of new foods and eating behaviours. This trend toward modern eating is of particular significance because traditional eating has been related to positive health outcomes and sustainability. We are currently in the midst of a major change in what people eat and in the way they eat. Some of these changes have been described as a nutrition transition, which refers to a shift from diets high in complex carbohydrates and fibre towards more varied diets with a higher proportion of fats, saturated fats, and sugar. We are currently in the midst of a major change in what people eat and in the way they eat. Some of these changes have been described as a nutrition transition, which refers to a shift from diets high in complex carbohydrates and fiber towards more varied diets with a higher proportion of fats, saturated fats, and sugar. The changes partially result from the globalization and modernization of food and eating, for example, access to new technologies, modern supermarkets, food delivery apps and food marketing. Also, urbanization has separated a large part of the world?s population from the direct production of foods, which has produced changes in eating behaviour. A study was conducted on shift of traditional way of eating to convenient way of eating in working women, and ; A 100 sample of working women were taken in various institutions and schools. A Well structured questionnaire was developed and direct interview was done. The collected data was tabulated and analysed statistically using One sample T-test and was significant at p>0,100. The study concluded that there is an impact of working hours in using convenient method of meal preparation and other factors like social media effect, working days, busy in job, rise of food delivering apps plays an important role in switching to convenient method of meal consumption. The effect of convenient method meal consumption causes obesity and other cardiovascular diseases.
