French Women Don't Get Fat and Magical Leek

It’s Not a Diet, It’s a Lifestyle

For all those dear fellows who just like me got themselves out of control and gained bunch of weight during holiday season…

I’m not a fan of diets and I never was. Also, I’m not a fan of killing myself at the gym. I strictly believe that being in good shape is easy. All you need to do is just eat healthy, right amount of food at the appropriate time and just don’t sit around the whole day. And you know what? I’m not the only one. About a year ago I came across this really good book “French Women Don’t Get Fat”.

French people are known for their love for food, they simply won’t refuse themselves in these divine pleasures like having a glass/bottle(s) of wine with cheese, baguettes, foie gras, etc. They are also known to have an absolutely opposite attitude towards gyms than Americans. Check out Paris to the Moon by Adam Gopnik, there is a whole chapter about it and I’m pretty sure nothing changed since the time his book was written. And you know what?  I can’t blame them. We only live once for God sakes!  Let’s just enjoy the good food and not waste our time and money at the gym but still stay in good shape!
