French Women Don't Get Fat

French Women Don't Get Fat: The Secret of Eating For Pleasure by Mireille Guiliano

With a title like that, I couldn't resist!

Guiliano's book is cute and interesting, but isn't exactly earthshattering. Guiliano discusses her weight gain when she was 19, and the secret to losing the weight and keeping it off: en francais.

Eating smaller portions, drinking more water, walking more, not depriving yourself of pleasure and eating nothing but the freshest of market fresh foods are her main points. Nothing we haven't heard in any iteration before...

Guiliano's book is straightforward and honest, but a bit heavy on her perceptions and experiences and less on actual plans to overcome weight gain.

Note: I listened to the audio edition, narrated by Guiliano herself. No one but a lady with a french accent could narrate this book...
