Ok, I probably got this in the wrong place, as usual. :o But I'm wondering if anyone has read the book French Women Don't Get Fat by Mireille Guiliano? I am about halfway through it, and am really thinking this might be something worth giving a good shot. It's kinda how I eat anyway, but my body is weird and sometimes I don't know I'm full until I'm overfull. That's where the handy-dandy food scale comes in, I guess! :cool:

Opinions on the book (or any of her books, for that matter) would be helpful.

Thanks ahead of time.

I have seen this book in the shops and I seem to remember both the author and the book being showcased on an Oprah show a couple of years' ago but I have not read it. Speaking as a 1/4 part French woman, it is very true that the majority of French woman don't get fat but perhaps for a variety of reasons such as their wealth or lack of it, their fashion sense, their love of cooking and whether they are busy working the land, and of course the Mediterranean diet.

We have not heard from you, Ocean, for a while. Hope all is well?
