Low-fat diet increases the risk of obesity.
What will happen to those low-fat, zero fat items on the shelves of retailers?
Lots of studies show that eating protein heavy meals is healthier.
And that fat is not unhealthy.
I read in an article, that when prehistoric people swapped to protein rich diet from picking plants and seeds, they saved a lot of time to think and use their imagination.
That’s why I live on my 50-30-20 rule.
I chose this because of my weight.
If I were lighter I could use the 40-40-20 or 40-30-30 rule.
That’s why I prepare sweets, desserts from rather fatty ingredients, like egg yolks when i make custard.
I make custard from egg yolks, rather than from corn flour.

This is a healthy, Indian inspired dish for fitness people, who live on protein rich food.
The minced chicken breast gives the protein, the spinach gives iron and vitamins.
400 g minced chicken breast
200 g spinach paste
2 tbsp chopped onion
1-2 tbsp chopped garlic
1-2 tbsp tomato paste
Red chilli powder
Indian spices like garam masala
I usually cook the minced chicken well in advance. I keep it in the freezer in smaller boxes.
I can make chicken jalfrezi if I want.
To prepare the dish. On a little oil fry the chopped onion until translucent.
Add garlic and thyme, then the minced chicken. Fry dry for a little while.
Add the spinach, and season with the spices and cook until the spices get cooked.
Add 2-3 tbsp tomato paste, cook for a minute or so and it’s ready.
A fast lunch for those who live a fitness life.
Or for those who fight against fat.
Simple and healthy.
