Frenchy Friday Onze: the French Diet

>> April 2, 2010

Since I've been trying to find a good lifestyle change, to help me lose weight.. I decided to turn Frenchy Friday into a way to look at the French diet. I mean, as the article I found (posted below) suggests, how do they eat so much wine, cheese & yummy baguettes? Seriously!

I just might have to check out this book.

yummmm.. baguettes!

Joyeux le vendredi saint! (Happy Good Friday)
The French Women Don't Get Fat DietIt's a diet based on eating for pleasure and portion control. Experts explain how it works. If you have ever wondered how the French manage to eat cheese, butter, baguettes, and drink wine while staying slim, then French Women Don't Get Fat: The Secret of Eating for Pleasure, by Frenchwoman Mireille Guiliano, may be the book for you.

French Women Don't Get Fat is actually a non-diet book, loaded with
pearls of wisdom from the chic and fit Mireille Guiliano, also CEO of the
champagne company, Veuve Clicquot.... (see rest of article here).

Give me that bread. NOW.

My one (okay, ONE OF) true weaknesses!

I thumbed through that book several years ago. Good tips, just like with the Mediterranean diet. Hope you can pull some helpful things from it.

The key is moderation which is hard to do but so worth it. You eat real food rather than diet food. It's great if you can stick to the moderation piece - the real trick. When I first moved to Europe I gained so much weight because I was eating everything - it was all so yummy - had to stop doing that real quick!

I bought this book at a thrift store. My friend swears it is all about eating real food...whole preservatives, weird ingredients, etc. Makes sense...but that junk tastes so good.

Thanks for the article. I've been making a conscious effort to try to eat in the "French" way while I'm learning French (on ( -- maybe the two can work in tandem! Merci.
