Seniors, those who are overbalance and people who are not physical active should avoid the fat food.

Although, milk products are very valuable to our health but not everybody can take it. There are people who can’t take synthesized lactose and need diet without lactose. It is very difficult to make a menu for such kind of people because lactose is everywhere: in milk, in bread, in salad, sauces…These people should avoid the food which consists of milk and whey.
