Rule #22 - Make requests rather than getting a nice surprise

Accept that your in-laws are prone for bringing home fat fortified takeaway food as a surprise for the grandchildren.

Try to understand it is their way of showing affection to the little monkeys, rather than contributing to growing obesity epidemic in the country.

Keep your high-fat radar on and when you smell a takeaway in the midst, playfully suggest that they treat you to some healthy veggie pizza, or that you haven't eaten a Lebanese fatayer with mezze in a while and you would absolutely love for them to bring some home for you!

Not only will they feel touched that you like it when they shower you with the gift of food, but heart will love you too!
