So your middle name isn't "porkchop" ?
BTW I think the reason the French and concerned about obesity now is they have started adapting an American lifestlyle and eating habits, the abundance of fast food, and hurried lifestyle are killing them like it's killing us!
A couple of books I've read recently that I like are:
Mindless Eating by Brian Wansink. Nothing female centric about that one, it's a bunch of studies about why we tend to eat mindlessly, with tips on how to eat more mindfully. Very interesting reading.
The other book is the Eat-Clean Diet by Tosca Reno. More of a body builder approach to clean eating, and I'm not following the plan exactly, but I have cleaned up my diet quite a bit, and feel very good about it. Much less bloating, and more energy, etc, from cutting out most processed foods, and HFCS, and hydrogenated fats in particular.
