French Women Don't Get Fat

Following the publication of the book French Women Don’t Get Fat, Clotilde from Chocolate & Zucchini got involved in a discussion with 3 other French women. Her post about it is here along with the follow-up comments, while the transcript of the discussion on the subject is here.

What came out of the discussion was plain old-world common sense; balanced small meals, treats in moderation, walking and exercising to make up for indulgences and fresh, locally grown produce, avoiding prepared and processed meals. What struck me as something I know but haven’t been practicing recently for lack of a dining room, or a dining table for that matter, is enjoying a meal away from distractions, focussing on the freshly cooked food and conversation with dinner company.
