I am beginning to enjoy this book French Women Don’t Get Fat even more now since first of all it lured me away from a dreadful thriller called Mercy on Netflix! It was an irritatingly silly film. Then the book made me want to keep on reading as it is filled with easy, delicious treats for enjoying food and at the same time remaining slim.
Try this wonderful tip: one vital secret of hunger management is yoghurt. You should not buy the sugary supermarket kind, but the real healthy one, strained, full of the bacteria essential to health. You can even make your own. The book shows you how. You can have two small servings a day with a little honey, or fresh fruit. You should befriend it as soon as you feel hunger pangs invading you!
But alas, I am enjoying this book so much that perhaps just reading it might make me fatter! Mireille Guiliano’s book French Women Don’t’ Get Fat The Secret of Eating for Pleasure was not surprisingly an international bestseller!
And for me personally, several years ago when I had chemotherapy for breast cancer I was really frightened by the way I lost my appetite. I could not believe that I preferred to drop dead instead of taking in even a small spoonful of any kind of food! That was when yoghurt came to my aid. I could always manage a cup full of this nutritious, wonderful food and it kept me going.
