“The French Paradox” Eating French

The Santa Barbara Independent Eating French

A wonderful article that has more to do about quality of life than the things we have or do. A brief anecdotal look at the paradox of the way French eat more “fattening” food than USAian’s (and by extension Australians who seem to follow US trends) may be related to how they eat it – in a relaxed atmosphere talking with friends, whereas anglo-western cultures tend to wolf it down as appropriate. I’d have to say that when I am relaxed and happy – i definitely lose weight quicker than when I am stressed at work (where I tend to put it on) even with the same foods.

Those who know me – will know that I have a goal of settling in France for a few years – seems there might be something to it for my health 😉
