In this photo taken Monday, May 29, 2017, an Indian woman leans on a wall outside a fast food restaurant in New Delhi, India.

People eat out more often, and prefer Western-style junk food such as burgers and pizza over traditional lentil and vegetable meals. The changes have brought a sharp rise in obesity, along with lifestyle diseases such as diabetes, even as India still has some of the world’s worst levels of malnourishment and stunted childhood growth due to a paucity of food.

BISHNOI - In this Dec. 22, 2016 photo, Indian patients, seen from behind a fogged glass, wait for consultation inside the National Fertility and Test Tube Baby Centre in Hisar, India.
