How do French women manage to stay fit?

“Beauty is nature’s first gift to women, but also the first thing it takes back.” The French have a saying; I don’t know if you heard it. I saw this during my trip to Paris; nature has given the French women the ordeal.

Let them age; they seem to have gotten better over time. Their beauty beyond physical harmony and symmetry… There is harmony even in their air, gaze, and gestures. They are very well-groomed, confident, and relaxed! What’s more, they fit amazingly! What do they eat? What do they drink so they can stay like this? Moreover, French cuisine does not consist of fat-free and salt-free meals, greasy ducks, dough, cheese, or soufflés… This is called the French Paradox: women who can stay thin in all that chocolate, cheese, fatty main course… 🙂

I researched, compiled, and collected for you. Here you go, sir, the secrets of French women…

They never go hungry, and they don’t snack!

The first rule in nutrition cultures is “Eat on time!”. They eat three meals a day and never snack. It is in their culture to enjoy being at the table. The food rests on the floor as if they gather energy. Therefore, they eat with respect, taste, smell, and feel. It’s not for them to have a quick snack in the middle of nowhere. Meals should be eaten on time and properly. Not for nothing did they say, “The stomach is the smoothest clock.” saying. 🙂

They eat very slowly!

We all know that our brain receives the signal of fullness at least 20 minutes after the first bite. The French eat, talk and rest. They chew their bites for a long time. They even take a break from their meals by putting the fork and knife in their hands from time to time. Since they eat slowly, they can be satisfied with small portions. They eat for pleasure, spread their pleasure over time, and enjoy the presentation and the moment. “Eat less than usual.” In this way, they can abide by the rule. They don’t need to eat plate to plate to get full. 🙂

They consume yogurt twice a day!

One of the biggest reasons the Frenchdon’tt gain weight is yogurt! Much has been written and drawn about the fact that it prevents lubrication in the abdominal region. A rich and healthy food source regulates the intestinal flora; The calcium it contains is precious. The French consume yogurt, especially at breakfast. In this way, the digestion of the food they ate the previous evening becomes more accessible, and their daily calorie balance is not disturbed.

More vegetables than fruits, more fish than vegetables!

They love to eat vegetables and fish. Vegetables more than fruit and fish more than vegetables are among the substances that make food cultures healthy. They certainly do not exaggerate the portions. They eat little of everything.

A quality bite instead of a tasteless plate!

The “Eat only the best quality!” rule accompanies the food culture in an elite and selective tone. We are talking about a society that eats cake without bread. 🙂 Indeed, they prefer a bite of an incredibly delicious cake instead of two slices of bread. It is essential for them that what they eat is delicious. Instead of eating a box of poor-quality chocolate, they choose a bite of chocolate, even if it is expensive. In this way, they can stay thin while enjoying what they eat.

Instead of scales, they use the “zipper” tactic!

They follow up with their clothes rather than the thinness on the paper and whether they stay fit. Thus, they are not confused by parameters such as fat and muscle ratios. They know they’re gaining weight if they can’t fit in their pants. 🙂

They move a lot!

These elegant and charismatic women, Regardless of their age, try to stay fit, move and maintain their body shape. Signing up for gyms and sweating in pilates classes is not for them. But they are always active during the day. They walk wherever they can. In the morning, the streets of Paris are full of people jogging and walking. Most importantly, sport is not just an activity for them when they are young.

It seems that eating them is an activity associated with spiritual satisfaction. Sitting at the table, perceiving the taste with all the senses, being able to make exquisite and delicious choices in every situation… Eating slowly, with pleasure, with pleasure… What do you think? Is it worth a try? Or let’s ask: Are you worth it?
