french-women-dont-get-fat.jpg People in France are surprisingly thin and fit. This is surprising when one considers their consistent diet of red wine, more than 300 varieties of cheese and patisseries full of buttery desserts. Mireille Guiliano's 2004 book, French Women Don't Get Fat, throws some light on why French women are surprisingly thin.
