Having observed the American tendency toward extremist diet and exercise programs, French-American Mireille Guiliano makes a convincing case for the French approach toward maintaining one’s figure.
Rather than oscillating between an all-health food and and all-junk diet, Guiliano explains why enjoying everything in moderation as well as being discerning about the quality and quantity of what goes into your mouth will allow you to indulge without guilt. As far as exercise goes, rather than alternating between the couch-potato and boot-camp lifestyles—as we Americans tend to do—Guiliano suggests the more sustainable approach of integrating enjoyable physical activities into your daily life. Written more in the style of a memoir than a diet manual, this book is quite enjoyable to read. If you love to eat as much as I do, I’m sure you will appreciate the secrets contained in this book as much as I did!
