French women don't get fat, but they do eat bread and pastry, drink wine, and regularly enjoy three-course meals. In her delightful tale, Mireille Guiliano unlocks the simple secrets of this "French paradox"; how to enjoy food and stay slim and healthy. Hers is a charming, sensible, and powerfully life-affirming view of health and eating for our times.

I enjoyed listening to this french woman's story. I have known many european exchange students who have found themselves in the same situation here in america gaining weight, only to return to their culture and slim back down. An insightful personal story that can only be of help to youin understanding why we are too large!
