Secrets Of The French #1: Eat Whole Milk Yogurt And Cheese




The French eat several servings of FULL-FAT, WHOLE MILK yogurt and cheese in small quantities. It makes you feel fuller. Low fat, "diet" food does NOT exist in France. Even though the French eat a high-fat (yet low-carb and low-calorie) diet, they are incredibly slim. They get all of their fats from healthy sources, like cheeses, milk, avocados, olives, etc. Your body NEEDS fats to create hormones, I think a low-fat diet makes it harder to lose weight. Eat more fat, but less calories overall.

More Information:

My fiance is French, and I spend several months of the year in France. I am intrigued by how French women are incredibly slim without dieting, so I wanted to share some of their secrets with you.
