French Women don’t get Fat. Pah.

Posted in News by Nneoma Ulu on April 5, 2010

Mirielle Guiliano must be pretty thankful that her book ‘French Women don’t get Fat‘ came out in 2005 – according to recent statistics, all that bread, steak frites and red wine is finally changing the bodies of our French neighbours… they’re getting fat. In my opinion, anyone who eats all the good stuff and doesn’t suffer the consequences of weight gain is pretty lucky and gets no sympathy (excuse my bitterness, it comes from years of yo-yo dieting). It’s not that the news revealing that obesity levels in France are now similar to those in the US in the 1970s is comforting, I guess it’s more the fact that there is a real side to every fantasy. This time around, its the fantasy that those gorgeously slim and immaculately styled French women – think Carine Roitfeld and daughter, Marion Cotillard, Audrey Tautou who inspire and are admired by us mere mortals could be getting rounder  (Karl Lagerfeld eat your heart out… quite literally!). Hehe!
