French Women Don't Get Fat is by no means your regular run of the mill "diet" book; it's a new way of life! The book offers insight into having more, smaller, meals throughout the day that are more beneficial to your body. It promotes a fuller, more wholesome means of eating. It was just what I've been looking for. I liked taking the approach of more, smaller meals throughout the day as opposed to three regular/big meals. I never felt hungry or deprived. I didn't have any miserable days denying myself delicious foods, thank goodness I could still have chocolate! Portion control is definitely the key here, and the French women know how to control the size of their plates! As well as being a great guide to a healthier way of life, the book also includes many tips and suggestions for living everyday life. There are French Ladies fashion tips (specifically, the items you must have in your closet, versatile pieces that can be worn in multiple ways to get the most out of them), apartment decorating guidance, and helpful tips for a happier life, from help in getting over your ex, to taking more "me" time. And it's all brought to you in a witty, fun, non-preachy way. You feel actively involved in every page, a really great read!
