French Women Don’t Get Fat, but they do eat bread and pastry, drink wine, and enjoy three-course meals. In her delightful tale. Mireille Guiliano unlocks the simple secrets of this “French paradox”–how to enjoy food and stay slim and healthy. Hers is a charming, sensible, and powerfully life-affirming view of health.
As a slender French girl, Mireille went to America as an exchange student and came back fat. Her family physician re-introducing her to classic principles of French gastronomy helped her restore her shape and gave her a whole new understanding of food, drink, and life.
Mireille reveals the ingredients for a lifetime of weight control–emphasizing the virtues of freshness, variety, balance, and always pleasure. Mireille shows how virtually anyone can learn to eat, drink, and move like a French woman.Publishing Details
