Praise for French Women Don’t Get Fat:
“You’ve heard it before. . . . But somehow, when the advice comes from Mireille Guiliano, you actually listen. A perfect, slim (and slimming) read for dieters and bon vivants alike.”
“She spurs readers to give up the guilt and dieting extremes, to eat smarter and more joyfully. . . . Her writing, like her three-meals-a-day diet, is all part of her joie de vivre.”
–Women’s Wear Daily
“The past few years have been dominated by ‘scientific’ diets . . . I welcome this break from the usual kind of quick-fix diet book . . . Will this book transform one’s eating habits? Its good sense is unanswerable – and, personally, I love the bit about not going to the gym.”
–Lynne Truss, bestselling author of Eats, Shoots & Leaves
“Mireille Guiliano’s book is slender, elegant, well-spoken, sensible, and unembarrassed by the frank embrace of stratagems – just like the French women whom she holds up to the reader to admire and, if we can, to emulate.”
–Adam Gopnik, author of Paris to the Moon
“French Women Don’t Get Fat is not only charming and witty, but useful. It made me want to run out and buy a pound of leeks and a bottle of Champagne!”
–Sharon Boorstin, author of Cooking for Love and Let Us Eat Cake
“Through stories and recipes, Mireille Guiliano shares her tricks, just like a good girlfriend should. And since it reads like one big juicy secret, you’re inclined to listen.”
–The Globe and Mail
“A charming, humorous look at the healthy food habits that French women have had for years.”
