On Weight

Where are all the fat women in the city of Paris? Hand across my heart, in the three days I have been here, I have honestly not seen one overweight woman. How do they do it? What do they eat? Do they eat? I am certainly not fat but I feel ungainly next to the French women who whizz (actually they don’t whizz, they saunter) past me on the streets. Although I read the book, French women don’t get fat, I felt that the writer came across as being a bit smug. But perhaps Mireille Guiliano was right after all.

Perhaps they have a different attitude to food? The rest of Europe does seem to have a more healthy attitude to food and alcohol than us Brits...

@ belle: I can't say they smoke alot - I would even harzard a guess that they smoke less here than in England. I may be wrong though.

@ remiman: Today I saw two overweight women - not French :-(

@ Verity: I think you've knocked the nail on the head.
