French women are feminine, sociable, stylish and have a lifestyle desired by all women in the world. They seem to eat whatever they please and still not gain weight. The success of their lifestyle seems to be chocolate, love, diversity and last but not least balance.
“French women do not get fat, but enjoy bread and pastry, wine and regular meals, three dishes. Seems impossible to have it all, but if they can, it means that we all can.
Many blame their system and tricks inherited from the women in the family, but that does not mean that French women do not take care to eat in moderation. Often, celebrities born in France recognize that they don’t diet and do not go to gym, that’s because they have a lifestyle organized from the start: eat balanced and walk a lot.
Why French Women Do Not Get Fat
Their secret summarized in one sentence is something like this: “No guilt, no voluntary deprivation, but to learn how to enjoy the most of things you like the most.”
Like in fashion, less is more – less quantity at a table means more meals per day. You have to determine which is the most important meal of the day and it all starts here: the morning eat, but less to get tired three course lunch and evening censor your appetite with soup and maybe a dessert (fruit preferred ).
Like its author, Mireille Guiliano, we’re not talking about a specific diet, but about how you can shape the habits, to have a healthy lifestyle, to be strong and happy.
An important tip from the French women is to prepare your own meals and how often you can, take advantage of seasonal fruits and vegetables. French women try not to eat standing, nor watch TV during meals, make a meal and socialize with the loved ones.
“Tout est une question d’attitude” and indeed it is, it is an attitude problem, you always have to feel good about yourself.
