Life & Art of French Women

This is 5 reasons why I really need a diet:
1. My clothes don't fit anymore!: The real measurement is not the scale, but it is the clothes.
2. I don't move a lot: Getting fatter makes me don't want to move. And don't want to move makes me fat! It's a deadly cycle.
3. Too much is wasted: Not only money, but time too!
4. I'm going on a trip to the islands on May: I want to look fabulous. It's the beach! Hahahaha...
5. I only eat for the sake of eating: That's the worst cause! Food is pleasure. I should give more attention on what I eat.

To do that, I won't take on a ridiculous diet, but by simple changing my lifestyle. I read this beautiful book by Mireille Guiliano (Meer-ray Julie-ano). The book is called: French Women Don't Get Fat: The Secret of Eating for Pleasure. When I got the book, I thought it was just another diet book, but when I actually read it, it changes my perspective on life! The book is more about the life of French women. She recommends bread, Champagne, chocolate and romance as key ingredients to a balanced diet and lifestyle. The author is a French woman who studies in America. Because of that, she figured out about French women's art of living. It's that kind of art that I wish I could captured.

This is a little clip about Mireille Guiliano, the author.


  1. i only eat when i'm bored which is WAY worse, i think. (oh, and i love noodles too!)
