Meet our 45-year-old protagonist, affectionately known as 'Chef Uncle'. He's taken on the noble task of caring for his 15-year-old niece, Shelly, after her mother had to leave due to tax issues. Chef Uncle, already feeding a family of 8, is known for his meticulous meal planning and portion control. But when Shelly, a big girl at 5'4" and 320lbs, asked for a second helping of dinner every night, Chef Uncle found himself in a culinary conundrum. Should he stick to his calorie-conscious cooking or cater to Shelly's cravings? 🤔

A Plate Full of Drama: Is Chef Uncle Right or Wrong? 🍽️🤷♂️
Chef Uncle is in the hot seat, with his niece Shelly accusing him of starving her. His crime? Refusing to serve her two plates of dinner every night. While he insists he's promoting healthy eating habits, Shelly claims he's forcing her to lose weight. The situation has even spilled over onto social media, with Shelly airing her grievances for all to see. Chef Uncle, however, is torn. He wonders if he should relent and cook extra, considering Shelly's emotional turmoil. After all, a few extra plates wouldn't hurt his wallet. But would it hurt Shelly in the long run?
