Hello, What is it with French Woman not getting fat?
I just had a week's visit from our friends from Paris. I could not believe that way that they ate. The Mother,64, Daughter 32, ate and ate all day long. They had bread and cheese at breakfast, big lunches with cake for dessert, lots of snacks including cakes, bread and cheese, lots of full sugar pop, big dinners with loads of mashed potatoes, with butter, sour cream ect.. and dessert. They did not do any exercising other than to take walks with me, and yet they still fit into their fitted suit jackets and tight pants after the week was up.
I had a heck of a time staying on my low carb diet, and in fact slipped off when we were travelling. I ended up putting of 5lbs, after the week of the French Ladies, and they did not put on an ounce!!!!
I do not get it. I gain weight when I visit them in Paris, and I make a point to walk and exercise much more than they do.
I asked them the secret, they said eat what you want and walk. Sigh... Sigh...
