As an English ex-Pat, living in the USA for the past 16 years, I can relate to much of what this book has to say. I went from walking everywhere several times a day...buying groceries daily, cooking home made meals daily, walking to the shops, library, school, doctors office...to a life of driving everywhere and weekly grocery shops and a lot more eating out and fast foods. My weight immediately started to go up after I moved here, and I put on 20 pounds in the first 6 months. I've been struggling with it ever since...not overweight according to my BMI, but just uncomfortable with myself. Add to that 9 years of working night shift as an RN and the amount of convenience foods, processed yuck and being too tired to exercise on my days off (or catching up on lost sleep) and the problem, along with my cholesterol levels, just multiplied. Happily two things have happened that I fully intend to change things: A 'Sprouts' store opened within easy walking distance of my house, and I finally retired from nursing...I finally had the time to walk more AND cook home made meals again...but I still wasn't losing weight, why? Reading this book helped me realise what I was still doing wrong: 1. I was still locked in the 'One Huge Dish Per Meal' mindset, serving a huge bowl of pasta or casserole, or a giant plate loaded with meat, potatoes & veggies at each dinner time, and attempting to compensate by not eating breakfast or even lunch sometimes (then snacking on chocolate whenever I was hungry). 2. I was still thinking of walking as 'exercise'...I would plan on going 'hiking' around the trails near our house, or driving to hike in one of the many beautiful parks here, and dress up in my hiking boots etc., but because that took so much time out of my day it turned out to be a very rare occurrence. I started reading this book about a week ago and have already lost 4 lbs...4 lbs eating breakfast, lunch and 3-course meals for dinner. I'm absolutely amazed. Her advice on eating more courses but much smaller amounts of each course are absolutely spot on. Quality food over quantity. Just go for a walk...no dressing in special clothes, just pop your coat on if needed and go for a stroll in your neighborhood, or to your local shops to browse or buy groceries if they are within walking distance. Use the stairs, not the elevators, park further away from the store and walk...all make perfect sense. And her recipe for Leek Soup as a quick weight loss starter is just a miracle worker...even though I made Leek & Celery Soup, and we are only having it for lunch and sometimes also as an appetizer for our 3-course evening meals, I have seen not only a loss in weight, but I feel so much better. I always felt heavy, bloated and immobile after one of our previous 'One Huge Dish' dinners, but I can eat a 3-course dinner of delectable, quality items and feel wonderful afterwards (and I actually enjoyed preparing 3-course meals...the effort needed burns calories too!). Of course the book has some bad points...there is far too much boasting about Champagne and living the high life that she can with the high salary she earns...there are a lot of things that are not in the daily budget of the average person, but you can modify the general ideas with a bit of creativity to suit your own budget. And despite her reassurances that Working French Women are able to find the time to do all of these things...I take that with a pinch of salt, although I did save time by making multiple servings of desserts and pate's and freezing them for later dinners. I also just purchased a soup machine to help with the complexity of getting an appetizer on the table and having time to sit and enjoy it while still having to cook the main course. Yes, there's such as a thing as a soup machine...they are available on Amazon too :).

Anyone looking for a strict formulaic dieting guide will be disappointed in this book. Those looking for a lifetime plan to embrace the pleasures of deliciously prepared food, whilst being reasonably fit and toned will be thrilled. I bought this book in hard copy in an airport lounge a number of years ago, and have lost count of the number I've purchased and given to friends. The author introduces us to a relationship with food that has gone sadly by the wayside in North America. We are at war with food. We "battle the bulge", "wrestle the pounds" and "whittle our waistline", to no avail if the obesity statistics are anything to go by. Europeans have an entirely different attitude to food, as she so compellingly describes in this collection of anecdotes, tips, and recipes.

This book started me on a journey to losing almost 20 pounds, very gradually and almost effortlessly. I've kept it off for several years. Once in a while a couple of pounds creep on and I recalibrate quickly, calmly and without losing any joy in what I'm eating. If you're ready for a "rapprochement" with food, this book is a marvellous starting point.

I had to buy this book because of the terrible reviews of it that I have read here. Nothing could be that bad, I thought, and if it is, that would be a hoot. I bought it and have thoroughly enjoyed it. It reads just like "French Women Don't Get Facelifts," which I bought and read previously. Yes, the author comes across as snobby towards Americans, and no, the average American woman, especially if she lives in a rural area, does not have access to the foods and opportunities for exercise that New York and Parisian women have, but she does it with humor. Who wants a book that tells us America is the greatest in everything, if we are buying a book about French life? Buy this book and enjoy it!

I love this book. Ive tried just about every diet in the world and this book (while I agree-a bit stuffy) is full of common sense that so many of us lack. For instance, eat food you actually enjoy and don't eat food you don't. Be a little bit hungry between meals-you won't die. Have a glass of wine, not four. Eat fresh and in season. Rotate meals so that you don't get bored. Vegetables-do it. Drink a lot of water as your body really needs it. Water is good for your skin, your organs, weight loss, etc., and when you don't drink enough, you're body becomes like a dried up sponge. Coffee should be drank in the am for pleasure, not all day in a gallon jug. Eat at the table and talk to your spouse. Open a bottle of wine and pour half in a separate bottle to save. Eat yogurt as dessert. Eat fresh bread with fresh butter, not pop tarts and processed junk. And on and on. Again, its common sense stuff thats written in an easy to read manner. While you may already know these things, do you do them? I don't-so the book is great for me.
Her recipes are simple and use ingredients you'll likely have on hand.
Overall, I really enjoy this book. It makes sense. Its not going to lose you 10 pounds in a week-but I think it could do something much greater for your/my longterm health. Plus, I really love France.

Women take note. It's time we devote time to ourselves. Stop slepping around in tee shirts and ill fitting pants. The advice in the book can transform you without a lot effort.

This book took me by surprise: I was prepared to react but instead found myself responding very positively. I yield to no one in my suspicion of most things French, though there is much about the country to admire. This lady, however, has her game thoroughly in hand and makes her case courteously and charmingly. She is her own best example of all she expounds and there is no arguing with her . . . besides, she is so delightful it would be churlish to even try. The book is interesting, even intriguing, and filled with good hard facts and persuasive evidence that - on this point, anyway - the French have got it right.
