French Women Don't Get Facelifts: The Secret of Aging with Style & Attitude.

French Women Don't Get Facelifts: The Secret of Aging with Style & Attitude. Author Mireille Guiliano is CEO of Veuve Clicquot, and French Women Don't Get Fat offers a concept of sensible pleasures: If you have a chocolate croissant for breakfast, have a vegetable-based lunch-or take an extra walk and pass on the bread basket at dinner.

Guiliano basically became 'fat' (20 pounds overweight) by going to America. Or eating fruit or cheese for dessert. She begins fearing and dreading going back home because she knows her family and friends will react badly.

Guiliano, with much humour, gives the basics to healthy, balanced living preaching moderation in eating and exercise but emphasizing on taste, time and pleasure. Being in a similar situation of growing up in France but living in Canada, I can vouch to the truth of her observations and truly enjoyed finding again all the deliciously simple recipes of my childhood. I can't wait to try them out again! This book will find its place in my kitchen.

Stylish, convincing, wise, funny–and just in time: the ultimate non-diet book, which could radically change the way you think and live.French women don’t get fat, but they do eat bread and pastry, drink wine, and regularly enjoy three-course meals. In her delightful tale, Mireille Guiliano unlocks the simple secrets of this “French paradox”–how to enjoy food and stay slim and healthy. Hers is a charming, sensible, and powerfully life-affirming view of health and eating for our times.As a typically slender French girl, Mireille (Meer-ray) went to America as an exchange student and came back fat. That shock sent her into an adolescent tailspin, until her kindly family physician, “Dr. Miracle,” came to the rescue. Reintroducing her to classic principles of French gastronomy plus time-honored secrets of the local women, he helped her restore her shape and gave her a whole new understanding of food, drink, and life. The key? Not guilt or deprivation but learning to get the most from the things you most enjoy. Following her own version of this traditional wisdom, she has ever since relished a life of indulgence without bulge, satisfying yen without yo-yo on three meals a day. Now in simple but potent strategies and dozens of recipes you’d swear were fattening, Mireille reveals the ingredients for a lifetime of weight control–from the emergency weekend remedy of Magical Leek Soup to everyday tricks like fooling yourself into contentment and painless new physical exertions to save you from the StairMaster. Emphasizing the virtues of freshness, variety, balance, and always pleasure, Mireille shows how virtually anyone can learn to eat, drink, and move like a French woman. A natural raconteur, Mireille illustrates her philosophy through the experiences that have shaped her life–a six-year-old’s first taste of Champagne, treks in search of tiny blueberries (called myrtilles) in the woods near her grandmother’s house, a near-spiritual rendezvous with oysters at a seaside restaurant in Brittany, to name but a few. She also shows us other women discovering the wonders of “French in action,” drawing examples from dozens of friends and associates she has advised over the years to eat and drink smarter and more joyfully. Here are a culture’s most cherished and time-honored secrets recast for the twenty-first century. For anyone who has slipped out of her zone, missed the flight to South Beach, or accidentally let a carb pass her lips, here is a buoyant, positive way to stay trim. A life of wine, bread–even chocolate–without girth or guilt? Pourquoi pas?From the Hardcover edition.

As an English ex-Pat, living in the USA for the past 16 years, I can relate to much of what this book has to say. I went from walking everywhere several times a day...buying groceries daily, cooking home made meals daily, walking to the shops, library, school, doctors office...to a life of driving everywhere and weekly grocery shops and a lot more eating out and fast foods. My weight immediately started to go up after I moved here, and I put on 20 pounds in the first 6 months. I've been struggling with it ever since...not overweight according to my BMI, but just uncomfortable with myself. Add to that 9 years of working night shift as an RN and the amount of convenience foods, processed yuck and being too tired to exercise on my days off (or catching up on lost sleep) and the problem, along with my cholesterol levels, just multiplied. Happily two things have happened that I fully intend to change things: A 'Sprouts' store opened within easy walking distance of my house, and I finally retired from nursing...I finally had the time to walk more AND cook home made meals again...but I still wasn't losing weight, why? Reading this book helped me realise what I was still doing wrong: 1. I was still locked in the 'One Huge Dish Per Meal' mindset, serving a huge bowl of pasta or casserole, or a giant plate loaded with meat, potatoes & veggies at each dinner time, and attempting to compensate by not eating breakfast or even lunch sometimes (then snacking on chocolate whenever I was hungry). 2. I was still thinking of walking as 'exercise'...I would plan on going 'hiking' around the trails near our house, or driving to hike in one of the many beautiful parks here, and dress up in my hiking boots etc., but because that took so much time out of my day it turned out to be a very rare occurrence. I started reading this book about a week ago and have already lost 4 lbs...4 lbs eating breakfast, lunch and 3-course meals for dinner. I'm absolutely amazed. Her advice on eating more courses but much smaller amounts of each course are absolutely spot on. Quality food over quantity. Just go for a walk...no dressing in special clothes, just pop your coat on if needed and go for a stroll in your neighborhood, or to your local shops to browse or buy groceries if they are within walking distance. Use the stairs, not the elevators, park further away from the store and walk...all make perfect sense. And her recipe for Leek Soup as a quick weight loss starter is just a miracle worker...even though I made Leek & Celery Soup, and we are only having it for lunch and sometimes also as an appetizer for our 3-course evening meals, I have seen not only a loss in weight, but I feel so much better. I always felt heavy, bloated and immobile after one of our previous 'One Huge Dish' dinners, but I can eat a 3-course dinner of delectable, quality items and feel wonderful afterwards (and I actually enjoyed preparing 3-course meals...the effort needed burns calories too!). Of course the book has some bad points...there is far too much boasting about Champagne and living the high life that she can with the high salary she earns...there are a lot of things that are not in the daily budget of the average person, but you can modify the general ideas with a bit of creativity to suit your own budget. And despite her reassurances that Working French Women are able to find the time to do all of these things...I take that with a pinch of salt, although I did save time by making multiple servings of desserts and pate's and freezing them for later dinners. I also just purchased a soup machine to help with the complexity of getting an appetizer on the table and having time to sit and enjoy it while still having to cook the main course. Yes, there's such as a thing as a soup machine...they are available on Amazon too :).

Anyone looking for a strict formulaic dieting guide will be disappointed in this book. Those looking for a lifetime plan to embrace the pleasures of deliciously prepared food, whilst being reasonably fit and toned will be thrilled. I bought this book in hard copy in an airport lounge a number of years ago, and have lost count of the number I've purchased and given to friends. The author introduces us to a relationship with food that has gone sadly by the wayside in North America. We are at war with food. We "battle the bulge", "wrestle the pounds" and "whittle our waistline", to no avail if the obesity statistics are anything to go by. Europeans have an entirely different attitude to food, as she so compellingly describes in this collection of anecdotes, tips, and recipes.

This book started me on a journey to losing almost 20 pounds, very gradually and almost effortlessly. I've kept it off for several years. Once in a while a couple of pounds creep on and I recalibrate quickly, calmly and without losing any joy in what I'm eating. If you're ready for a "rapprochement" with food, this book is a marvellous starting point.

I had to buy this book because of the terrible reviews of it that I have read here. Nothing could be that bad, I thought, and if it is, that would be a hoot. I bought it and have thoroughly enjoyed it. It reads just like "French Women Don't Get Facelifts," which I bought and read previously. Yes, the author comes across as snobby towards Americans, and no, the average American woman, especially if she lives in a rural area, does not have access to the foods and opportunities for exercise that New York and Parisian women have, but she does it with humor. Who wants a book that tells us America is the greatest in everything, if we are buying a book about French life? Buy this book and enjoy it!

I love this book. Ive tried just about every diet in the world and this book (while I agree-a bit stuffy) is full of common sense that so many of us lack. For instance, eat food you actually enjoy and don't eat food you don't. Be a little bit hungry between meals-you won't die. Have a glass of wine, not four. Eat fresh and in season. Rotate meals so that you don't get bored. Vegetables-do it. Drink a lot of water as your body really needs it. Water is good for your skin, your organs, weight loss, etc., and when you don't drink enough, you're body becomes like a dried up sponge. Coffee should be drank in the am for pleasure, not all day in a gallon jug. Eat at the table and talk to your spouse. Open a bottle of wine and pour half in a separate bottle to save. Eat yogurt as dessert. Eat fresh bread with fresh butter, not pop tarts and processed junk. And on and on. Again, its common sense stuff thats written in an easy to read manner. While you may already know these things, do you do them? I don't-so the book is great for me.
Her recipes are simple and use ingredients you'll likely have on hand.
Overall, I really enjoy this book. It makes sense. Its not going to lose you 10 pounds in a week-but I think it could do something much greater for your/my longterm health. Plus, I really love France.

Women take note. It's time we devote time to ourselves. Stop slepping around in tee shirts and ill fitting pants. The advice in the book can transform you without a lot effort.

Okay, I've implemented many of the recommendations in this book (was already doing some of them) and I've lost weight already. I've had the book for a couple of months now. I have not yet done the magic leek soup weekend but plan to do one after the holidays. I do have to say that I'm loving this as I do not feel deprived in any way, shape, or form. This is not a diet it's a way of life and a very healthy way of life at that. I would highly recommend this book and all of her others as well. Thank you Mireille for sharing the Miracle Doctor's advice to you. I am finally at peace with food and myself.
