Why "French Women Don't Get Fat"

This week my husband and I are running a pretzel and baked goods stands with my in-laws at a fair in Maryland. Talk about food issues…I’m only three days into this 8 day affair and I’m already looking forward to the detox my body will undergo next week!

Anyway, I wanted to give you all a link to an article/video that I found rather interesting. It’s about a book called “French Women Don’t Get Fat”. I’ve not read the book, but I find the premise rather intriguing.

Check out the link and let me know what you think…


  1. Can't wait to read it. Just read a link on why Italians aren't typically fat - so I guess the world around us has got it down. As for America - don't think that book will be out anytime soon! ( :

  2. Unfortunately, I think you are correct, MJ, the "Americans Don't Get Fat" book certainly won't be gracing bookstores anytime in the foreseeable future. I guess those Europeans have one up on us in this category.

  3. Hi Maile! {I've been reading for a while, but this is my first time posting... It's nice to 'meet' you!} I actually have this book, and have read it twice. I'm obviously not learning from it... ;) There's a recipe in there for Magical Leek Soup/Broth that I still want to try. At any rate, there is some great stuff in there - I do recommend it. :)

  4. Michelle, it's nice to meet you as well! Thanks for the recommendation on the book. I stumble across this sort of stuff and never know whether it's really worth my time or not. I will definitely put this book on my "to read" list.
    P.S. Your photography is lovely:)
