German term or phrase: Drittelung
Die in Deutschland übliche Ernährung ist noch weit von den Empfehlungen der Weltgesundheitsorganisation entfernt, denn in dem von uns verzehrten Fett sind die gesättigten Fettsäuren nach wie vor Spitzenreiter mit einem Anteil von ca. 46% statt der gewünschten 33%. Die in der sog. Dreier-Regel empfohlene Drittelung der Fettsäuren in gesättigte, einfach ungesättigte und mehrfach ungesättigte basiert auf der Erkenntnis, daß der Cholesterinspiegel im Blut durch eine reduzierte Aufnahme von gesättigten Fettsäuren um zwei Drittel gesenkt werden kann

  -> and I probably eat too much of the "wrong" kind of fat... / No, but you look so vibrant, the way you gracefully lift that fin into the air, and with a healthy diet of krill and fish, it only stands to reason... ;-)

agree  Ingeborg Gowans: genau/ why oh why does the "bad stuff" always taste so good?
