Eating Like a PARISIAN for 1 MONTH! The French Woman Diet Challenge

Salut Youtube! hi everyone. I’m Rosie. I’m
Kate. and we are going to do a challenge which is called Eat like a Parisian
where we’re going to Eat like Parisian women for an entire month to see if it
actually helps you to lose weight and feel healthier so if you want to see
exactly what that diet entails keep watching.So it’s a new year and the same
us you know we’ve decided that we wanted to try do something a little bit
different maybe get a little bit healthier this year and so Rosie and I
were talking a lot about the different diets out there that we could kind of
test and we decided since we’ve been living now combined 14 years in France
we could probably do a French based diet so we might have started talking about
the different things that we’ve noticed the different ways that Parisian women
eat the things that they do that are different than us and we’ve kind of put
together a little diet that we’re going to try to follow for the next month.
Exactly because French women don’t get fat right? Obviously French women do get fat they’re human beings funnily enough but
there is something quite particular about the Parisian way of eating and it’s true that the vast majority of women here are slim. They are slim they’re very careful about how they eat which we’re going to
talk through a bit later and they obviously get results. So my
personal motivation for doing this basically I went to the gym and they’ve
got this special machine there I don’t know if it’s the best thing or
worst thing that’s ever happened to me. So you stand on these special scales, you’re holding
these rods and it kind of like scans your body and it lets you know what your
bone density is, how much fat you have, how much fat you have in your
arteries, like it’s the full analysis and actually my body fat percentage in
particular had just dipped into the overweight category so it was quite shocking for me. During this month on this diet my goal is to
lose four kilos and to really drop in that body fat percentage as well. I would
say my motivation is a little bit different if you follow any of mine
journey on my blog I just recently got married a year ago and so that was kind
of my time where I was really like oh I want to kick it in gear I want to get as
healthy as I can you know probably more for vain reasons and really for getting
healthy on the inside and this year I’m thinking more about just how can I be a
healthier person and live healthier I just had some changes in some medication
I was taking that have had a lot of effects on my skin and when I talked to
doctors they really ask you about what are you eating what’s going
into your mouth the food is really important for the way that your body’s
reacting and so when we were talking about diets I really wanted something
that would address like those different concerns that I’m having so mine’s less
about weight loss and a bit more about just being healthier in general. I would
say I really like about this diet concept that it’s not about what you eat
although we will be showing you what we eat so if you follow us on Instagram we are
gonna be posting in our stories every single day showing you guys what we eat
but that’s not only the point of all of this. This diet is really around how you
eat it’s a completely different mindset it’s about creating those habits it’s
about a different way of eating and it’s about actually setting yourself up so
that you eat differently for the rest of your life. Much more of a lifestyle
change then just like something that we’re gonna do for a month. So check out
the description box down below there is a freebie in there for you guys you can
download it directly and it’s gonna have a summary of everything we talked about
in this video all of the principles that we are going to follow for the next
month so that you can follow along too if you like and without further ado
let’s get into the Parisian diet! Principle number one I would say is
probably the most important one because it’s all about portion control so as
Rosie was just saying the idea is not to cut everything out of our diet like no
eating carbs or no eating pastries,I that’s not gonna happen especially
in France so the idea is just that you’re more restrictive on how much
you’re eating. Parisians I’ve noticed will eat a big a lunch and then a much
smaller dinner so they can easily have just like a small soup or a salad or
something a bit light in the evenings which i think is probably the right way
around.One of the things that we’re really gonna do is be using smaller
dinner plates as a constructive way of putting a normal amount of food on our plate. So if you’re worried about cutting
down on a bit of food and wondering like are you gonna be hungry, one of the
things that we’ve really noticed is how much time French people take while they’re
eating so they’re not rushing through meals so you need to take time you need
to chew slowly, you need to let your body process the fact that you’re eating
so that you have time to get full but what happens to me all the time i stuff
myself really quick and then I realize that I’ve eaten too much but it’s too
late to go back. They’ll eat for maybe a few minutes,
they’ll stop, they’ll chat, they’ll take their time… I mean they say it takes 20
minutes for your brain to register that it’s eating and has eaten so it kind of
makes sense.. When we talk about portion controls I don’t know about New
Zealand but in the u.s. the portion sizes that you get at restaurants or
when you’re being served food is nothing like the portion sizes that you get here
but that doesn’t mean that the French don’t like to indulge. They have dessert
here all the time. It is not something that I’m used to where I grew
up and so one of the things that’s really easy to do is if someone’s giving
you a dessert for the second time that day cut it in half and share with
someone and eat half of it. That’s the classic Parisian girl to me like she’ll
have a beautiful pastry or cake or something on her plate and she’ll be
able to eat a third of it and stop here. She wanted the taste she wanted to
indulge and she’s enjoyed it and her brain is satisfied and she’s moving on. Very impressive, whereas I’m like “inhale.” You can have a few desserts per
week you know we’re not like completely no sugar, but it’s like do you
need the full cake?Could you put a little bit of Nutella on your bread every single
morning rather than eating a jar on a Saturday night? Like it’s about balace. I
think one of the worst things that I do as well is eating well I’m distracted
it’s really hard to do portion control when you eat out of a bag in front of
the television or when you eat while you’re on the move.Rosie and I are really bad about grabbing Starbucks before we go to the office and walking
and chatting and stuffing muffins in our faces while we’re walking down the street and that’s not a good way to eat! Really, sit down for your meal and you
concentrate on what you’re eating or the person in front of you in order to stick
to the portion size that you want. Totally, blanket rule: the French eat their
meals at the table. It’s really about being conscious that you’re eating unlike when
you’re watching series and you look down and you’re like oh am i finished already?! I ate that whole bag of Cheetos? Principle number two is pretty easy to explain, less easy to execute so it’s really about no snacking so
something that shocked me when I arrived in France I don’t know if you felt the
same but they’re very strict around meal times like it’s breakfast lunch and
dinner there’s no such thing as late night snacking like the midnight
snack and that kind of thing. If they snack it’s late
afternoon 4 or 5 p.m. it’s called the goûter and they’ll have a piece of fruit or
some nuts or something like that and so what they’ll do is they’ll eat like
fully satisfying meals so like a full lunch and the lunch is maybe you know like
a chicken breast and vegetables like it’s quite substantial it’s more than
enough to keep them going. So principle 3 is one that’s gonna be a little bit more
difficult for me I’m not sure about you but it’s cooking at home. So my husband
and I are not very big on restaurants which is kind of funny because we live
in a great neighborhood with lots of really cool places to eat out but we are
absolute fans of delivering our food way too much so as you said it at this
diet it’s really important to understand what you’re actually eating and you’re
not preparing the food yourself you don’t actually know what’s in your food. I feel like in the French culture there’s a lot of pleasure
around shopping for fresh produce and cooking nice meals and sauces and
things like that from scratch, not buying bottled sauces and there’s definitely a
pleasure around food preparation as well as you know taking the time to slowly
enjoy and eat it so it’s an important part of the culture I think to try and
cook it home. So for the sake of this diet we’ve given ourselves a maximum
which is eating out twice per week so that may mean like brunch with a
friend or it may mean getting Deliveroo.They’re very
good at regulating themselves so if they do go out and they have like a big
brunch on Sunday for example they have a very light dinner that evening and then
Monday it’s straight back to it. My problem is sometimes what I have a cheat day that I’m just like screw it that means Monday’s a cheat day, Tuesday’s a cheat day, Wednesday…it’s all downhill But here it’s not like that.They have their cheat moments, but it’s a moment and you move on and you don’t do the same thing the next day.
Alright so principle number four is around what you drink. It’s gonna be
pretty simple water and wine. Cutting out sodas, fruit juice and beer. The
inspiration for this came from the fact that whenever I go out with Parisians
and the waiter is asking you what would you like to drink, especially
at lunchtime like in the evening they maybe take some wine, but at
lunchtime it’s like what would you like to drink? We’ve got these lovely juices,
we’ve got smoothies we’ve got… and they’re always like mmm tap water, just water please. I’m like “They’ve got milkshakes!” but no one will order one that never happens. I’m a big Coke Zero
fan which is a problem I know but I do drink a lot of coke so that’s gonna be a
little bit hard for me I think to cut out and so my idea in my head is okay
you can have like Perrier or like San Pellegrino or sparkling water that gives you a bit of that carbonation and if really you’re looking for something
sweet, add a bit of like syrup you know the French really love like their
different flavors of syrup so I could just add a little like drop of that into
water and and that should be like my go-to drink if I really need something
sugared right because otherwise you just really don’t see it. So our final
principle is about exercise and I am a very typical American when it comes to
exercise so if I’m on an exercise kick I am going to the gym five to six days a
week for an hour and I’ve noticed that the French don’t function like that
around sports it’s not like this ever compensating taking over their life
every day type of thing they tend to go like once or twice a week
thank you a bar class they do yoga they do like gym suedoise so we’ve decided during this diet that we’re not going to go to the gym six
days a week the gym is something that we should do once or twice a week and then
on top of that you should just be trying to walk everywhere.
Exactly, Parisian style. So something concrete that I’m gonna do is try and
walk to work at least five times a week so that’s something that I’ve got in
mind it’s about a 45-minute walk and then you maybe go to the gym once or
twice per week. So those are our five principles that’s
the Parisian diet.Who knows what’s going to happen, we’ve taken extensive measurements: weight, actually like measuring tape, body fat, that kind of thing. We’re gonna
keep journals around how we’re feeling and we’re gonna be checking in and we’re gonna be back here on YouTube and we’re gonna give you you guys the results of all of this! Follow us on Instagram we’re
going to be posting very regularly about what we’re doing, how we’re feeling you, what we’re eating all of that kind of stuff. Don’t forget to download your
freebie down below in the description box as well that Kate has prepared for
you so that you can grab those principles as well if you want a copy of
them. Let’s see if the clichés are true, let’s see if it helps. We’ll think when we’re eating half a cake! A bientôt, see you guys next time, bye!


  1. Je suis française et oui c est tout a fait moi !!! Je vous encourage à faire cela quelques mois et vous prendrez l habitude par la suite. N' oubliez pas les gros craquages surtout c est important 😄😂 bizzzz

  2. I have to say that I frequently recommend “French women don’t get fat” to any friends that ask how I stayed small during and after pregnancy. I read it years ago when i gained the “freshman 15” at school and it really helped me understand why things were getting out of whack. The principles it explains (many of them which you highlighted) are quite broad and applicable, rather than extreme or restricted to people who have access to certain food or gyms. Can’t recommend enough. Good luck on your journey and have fun!

  3. Excellent!!!! And I deeply appreciate that you’re not doing this to get sexy. It’s about developing a more healthy relationship with food, exercise, self control, and leaving bad habits. I want to add that it’s important to know when to say no or to not give into someone who guilt trips you. (Rosie, you know what I mean!!!) So, don’t be ashamed to give yourself permission to enjoy snacks and sweets during a movie. The French know how to live life – so should you! Have fun, I’m really interested to know how it turns out for you both ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  4. After hearing this i find I naturally take the French approach to eating. Except i like snacking, but i try to make it light snacks like popcorn or fruit.

  5. "I blame you" hahahah I blame desserts too

  6. FAKE

  7. The diet sounds like fun. I was also wondering whether it is easy to Find good gyms in Paris? I live in Southern California and many of our gyms are open 24/7. I was visiting Paris last summer and couldn’t find anywhere to exercise as the hotel gym was awful. Do you have any central Paris gym recommendations? Thank you!

  8. If I were there I would happily share your food!

  9. Choosing february for your "one month" challenge… clever girls :)))

  10. toc toc pk le sous titre n est pas en Français merci

  11. I'm already trying this "diet". I'm following all the steps, specially measuring my meal portions and of course no snacking. :'( ANYWAY, thanks for the TIP. <3

  12. Before I was 20 and share my life with foreigners, I could not even think of eating while watching TV, drinking coke while eating, or not having a dessert (mostly a fresh season fruit).

  13. Les parisiennes ne mangent pas moins du tout , les produits en générale en France sont moins gras et sucrés que dans beaucoup d autres pays . J'ai vécu au Canada et en Nouvelle Zélande, j'avais la même alimentation et pourtant jai grossit la bas . Il faut surtout arrêter les produits industriels au maximum et manger des produits de qualité non transformés le plus possible . Avoir une activité physique , boire beaucoup d eau et éviter le grignotage entre les repas , avoir une alimentation équilibré . On mange aussi très peu de fast food en générale alors que dans bcp de pays anglophones c est normal d en manger 1 à 2 fois par semaine , pour les français ça reste exceptionnel . Réduire les quantités ne fait pas maigrir, au contraire le corps réagit en faisant l inverse c est à dire que tout ce que l on mange est stocké deux fois plus car le corps ne comprend pas tout de suite pourquoi on le restreint donc c est un mécanisme de défense du corps

  14. Combien de fois faudra-t-il répéter que Paris c'est pas la France ?! Tout un pays ne se résume pas à une ville putain… Arrêtez de faire des raccourcis débiles 😥

    Paris isn't France ! You can't reduce a whole country to one city, stop acting like Parisians are the center of France
    Let's Unsub

  15. C’est des touristes dans leur tête elle voient paris comme la France et se sentent cool pcq elle que sa a foutre de faire des comparison ridicule “manger une parisienne” conasse on mange pas du tout tous les meme choses la prochaine vidéo “manger comme éthiopienne”

  16. Hi Rosie & Kate, this is will really interesting, I subscribed to follow your experiment. I also have a question for Kate about your earrings. They are so beautiful! Where did you get them and could we get a close-up view of them? They suit you and your coloring perfectly. Both of you are stunningly beautiful.

  17. I want a half french baby, someone can help me? 😘😆

  18. I didn't realise italian food habits were so smiliar to french ones 🙂 we do exactly the same in Italy

  19. A 45 minute walk to work in the winter? 🥶 what in the potato salad with raisins diet skinny challenge is this 🤣

  20. Will you make a video of your favorite places to eat in Paris that might be off the beaten path?

  21. Hello Rosie , why dont you shoot some outdoor activities like walking down the streets of Paris , going to a Restaurant ordering food stuff like that .

  22. I quite agree with some of your comments. Being French myself and having lived abroad for 35 years now, I am always surprised that people are constantly eating snacks between meals…

  23. Vous pouvez aussi boire de la limonade si vous voulez une boisson gazeuse pas trop sucrée, il faut juste voir de quelle marque elle est. Et vous pouvez même la faire maison, c'est très facile. 😉

  24. I can't understand the american girl.

  25. 9:34 Try a diabolo maybe. It's syrup with sparkling water.

  26. Par contre je vois tout le monde dans les commentaires qui s'acharne sur les parisiennes qui coupent leur faim avec du café et des clopes… Les enfants je sais pas où vous vivez mais ni moi ni aucune parisienne que je connaisse ne se coupe l'appétit ou même se prive de manger. Le café c'est bon et les clopes c'est addictif c'est tout faut pas être parano

  27. Truth be told, Rosie, you have gained quite some weight compared to your videos from a year ago. But it's cool that you're taking your health serious and are moving into action. Good luck with the experiment!

    (Please note that I'm not trying to be rude here by mentioning your weight out of nowhere. It relates to the video.)

  28. Hello I'm french and I found interesting how you see our way of feeding. We have different traditions but we have the same problems with the modern life. When you don't take the time to cook (beacause of your work or any other reason), you eat more industrial food that contains lots of sugar and salt. So even if you make a lot of sport it becomes difficult to spend all this energy what makes you fat. As you say take the time to eat without being disturbed and take also the time to cook. Buy some vegetables and meat and cook it just as you like using as less industrial products as you can

  29. Régime parisien? Justement c est qu’il ne faut pas faire de régime. Vous risquez d’agresser votre corps à vouloir le contrôler.
    Nous on a l’habitude car on vit en France ms si vous arrivez à grignoter toute la journée et rester à votre poids profitez en mdr

  30. Hi Rosie.
    I'm a French woman studying dietetics in Australia.
    I plan to right my honours dissertation on the principle that how you eat can be as incidental as what you eat.
    I am very interested with your results.
    You are spot on with your observations of the way the French eat and I myself lost 10 kg by switching from Aussie back to French eating habits.
    Good luck girls. Can't wait to see how you go.

  31. I'm french

  32. A few tricks I got from my grandma (at 94 she's still in great shape):

    Start your meal with soup or salad (green salad, cold veggies salad….)
    Half your plate should be veggies (potatoes are not considered to be veggies )
    Use fresh ingredients
    No eating between meals
    Walk at least 2-3km a day
    Dine around 7:30 pm so you're not full when you go to bed

    Et surtout prend le temps de mâcher! (Chew your food before swallowing it)

  33. Hi Rosie,

    What gym did you find this machine in? I want to figure out how much body fat I have LOL

  34. cuisiner soi-même est bien moins cher que les plats surgelés et tout fait; le plus est que en cuisinant toi-même ton repas, tu as moins faim en arrivant à table à cause/grâce aux odeurs lors de la préparation du repas. Et oui ne pas se distraire lors du repas te permet de te rendre compte de se que tu mange.

  35. Hello you beautiful young ladies, i am half Swiss French, and brought up American, but chose my food carefully and on a high fiber diet eating my breakfast of Swiss muesli keeps me fit and trim at a late age and drinking plenty of water from French alps.!!!!!!

  36. You have particulary resumed the reasons why we stay slim in France and not only in Paris. Eat quietly at the table each 3 meals of the day, and no snack between, never. Do shopping, choose the best ingredients to cook, and no take away, never. Drink tap water or wine, no soda. If you do that you can eat what you want, even fat or pastries, you'll never become fat.

  37. Ladies as others have mentioned Parisians stay slim by smoking. In the EU only the Greeks smoke more than the French. The French smoke far more than the Italians, Germans, Brits, etc.

    As for eating Paris is full of fast food restaurants like McDonald's, KFC and many others and these restaurants are busy. Lots of French women eat there. The one redeeming factor is most Parisians walk a lot during their daily life so that's what is keeping them slim.

  38. You look so much worse sitting next to that blonde girl.

  39. oh my god drinking water looks so hard for you lolololol

  40. Hmm I want to try it with you 🇦🇺

  41. You need to smoke like a chimney if you want to eat like a French woman. They use cigarettes to replace food when hungry.

  42. Are there any photos actually on Instagram? I looked today and couldn't see any on neither of your accounts.

  43. As an american who grew up in Paris, I've seen both worlds and made comparisions all my life. I don't disagree with anything you've said on the way Parisians eat. It's definitely different than a lot of anglophone countries (I'm currently living in the UK, and there's a whole other debate on how the english eat). I don't think it's a diet that will help you lose weight though. I think it's more of a way of eating that helps maintain your current weight. You won't gain any, but you won't lose any either. I do think that it's a healthier way of eating though, so good luck!

  44. I started doing this a few weeks ago, and so far, it’s been a challenge to retrain myself. But it’s worth it. BUT eat clean, avoid processed food, and use healthy oils (and reduce sugars as much as possible). Good video!

  45. Is Paris or France in general safe? I am learning French and have always dreamt about going to Paris or French places like Alsace and Annecy but… Is it safe? (Hi from Australia!)

  46. Rosi we need that EMOJI of yours in the begining😵😵😵😵😵

  47. visiblement y a encore du boulot… accroche toi et Bon Courage!
    (PS : "my motivation is to get dick!")

  48. if you want to lose weight then you need to intermittent fast. Skip your breakfast and have a very late lunch , or even better, do one meal a day. Insulin goes up with any bit of food, even mega healthy food. The hormone insulin will tee totally block any fat weight loss if it's elevated. It will elevate even with sugar and cream in your coffee. You will see serious weight loss. There are a ton of videos that you can watch about intermittent fasting. You're welcome.

  49. Je pense que la grosse différence en France avec ce que j'ai pu voir à l'étranger c'est les heures de repas fixes. Ce qui permet si on a faim de ne pas sauter sur le moindre truc (souvent mauvais) qui passe pour la combler. Si le repas est dans 2h, on attendra.
    D'ailleurs je l'ai remarqué avec mes collègues, les minces mangent à peu près autant que les plus corpulents aux repas par contre ces derniers ont toujours des trucs à grignoter dans leur bureau (chocolat, gâteaux, bonbons…) et ont tendance à boire des sodas… Bien sur ce n'est pas une vérité absolue non plus, chacun sa physionomie.

  50. Comment manger comme un français ? Fromage, pain, pinard, charcuterie, boeuf et patates (avec de la salade on est pas des monstres). Ça c'est du régime !

  51. a little trick. Finish your meal with a hot drink. coffee or tea.
    And do not forget to throw anything away. "Les restes" must be use again the next day with other accompaniments

  52. Well, I,am French man and I lived in U.S. more than 15years and all bad foods except lay,s potatoes. I eat BRAUMS Hamburger, big, fat and super tasty. Etc… I take no more than 8 lb in 15years, zero sport. But my father is very tall and ultra slim. My mother was a very good looking woman and very slim.I,am back in France and keep the same weight

  53. Girls, don,t take your car but walk…oooops, I just forgot your WALMART is 3 miles away!

  54. Are you constructing a diet based on an eating habits of some famous Parisians? Ehm do you understand they have a very different energy outcome just because they're living in Paris? They put out a lot of energy just to be able to move around the city. How about you don't recommend small portions and rather recommend vegan or vegetable-based restaurants like those slim looking females go to?

  55. Je regarde cette vidéo en mangeant des oreo et en buvant du coca ✌️😂

  56. Ou sont les Français ? Je vous vois pas je suis seule ??!?

  57. Rosie, this is totally off-topic but what lipstick are you wearing? The shade is very flattering on you!

  58. I’m really ready for this.

  59. Liking the video and you have done a perfect job on the edit! If you have time let me know what you think of my latest video just need some feedback! 😃

  60. I think overall there are a lot more regulations to what chemicals and GMOs they put on their food. I moved here two years ago, and in my home country I was a total gym freak (crossfit, gym, swimming) who often cut out carbs completely and tried to avoid sugars at all cost (occasionally having binge days) and when I moved to France I could not afford a gym membership so I didn't do much. Its incredible how I eat croissants, bread, takeout and pastries in a regular basis and managed to keep my weight intact just by walking. Its been two years now, and ive even stopped craving sugars as much as I did before, maybe im just getting older, im 27 now, but I feel that I have cracked fitness after years of struggle, strange restricting diets and excersize crazes.

  61. Fantastic movie! Sitting here at Y&S FOOD! we all love to detect these types of content. We produce Travel & Food shows too, around the the world, and therefore we are constantly seeking out inspirations and also approaches. Thank You.

  62. Really interested to see how this pans out!

  63. I love this! About how many miles a day would you say they walk? Need to make sure I get it in! Thanks!

  64. Smoke a pack of cigs everyday.

  65. Did the diet work? How much weight have you two lost?

  66. Interesting! I was just curious to know if you had looked at the average calories/day? I realise that every has different calorie requirements so it won’t be the same for everyone, but I’m wondering if the calories per meal tend to be higher to compensate for not snacking and was hoping to compare to my own calorie intake. Thanks! I’ve watched the follow up video.- I’m glad it’s going well so far!!

  67. No nibling means good diet!How do you think we stay so thin? You have to let your stomach at rest !! That is the key rule!!

  68. Bonjour, great tips. I love both your sweaters, so adorable and comfy looking. Merci.

  69. The girls show pictures of models as "real French women"! Come on…show how much they smoke….sure you're thin, but you get lung cancer…good thing? A friend of my mom's has a doctorate in French (teaching in the US), so she spent a year or two in France, and she came back like a rail; she told us that food was so expensive and they only ate meat/protein once a week, so pls no diet needed when food is so expensive.

  70. I'm watching this with the famous French cookbook by Edouarde de Pomiane "Cooking in Ten Minutes" on the shelf nearby. 🙂

  71. I saw my French friends always eat salad at the begining of the meal and they told me eating in season is probably rule number one 😉

  72. Wow, the body composition scale seems like a great tool. Rosie, your lovely, and I would not ever think you are "overweight". I wonder what health issues your friend is facing? I hope things go well for her and you both.

  73. If you drink anything with CO2 with your meal it affects your stomach acid, and it's ability to digest. Simple chemistry. Eat nothing cooked in oil; the oil oxidizes and creates free radicals in the blood. This does not happen with butter or lard.

  74. I totally agree with French eating way you said. You can eat whatever you want but it should be small potions and well-balanced.

  75. Parisians are this because they walk everywhere. As a French girl myself, diet is a tiny part. Also you said they’re very careful of what they eat, no they aren’t, they eat whatever they want.

  76. I’m British and was raised this way, I live abroad and still eat this way and I see how lapsed most fellow brits are regarding food and meal times. It’s just discipline and should be viewed as a pleasure and ritual to enjoy a delicious meal sat down in peace with loved ones! Great video girls 💋

  77. À 6:55, on entend parfaitement le bruit que fait un estomac féminin à la simple idée de faire la "diet" pendant un mois.

    Je ne sais pas si c'est le régime français, mais voir dans les villes tous (et toutes) ces dingues de fitness courir dans des cages en verre sous le regard des passants histoire de perdre trois grammes de graisse, ça me semble pas être la raison pour laquelle les Françaises sont soi-disant minces. Voilà encore un mode de vie issue de la culture (des villes essentiellement) anglo-saxonnes. Il ne faudrait pas se méprendre, les femmes minces des magazines participent à un mythe de la femme française mince, mais ces femmes sont jeunes, rarement françaises et passent plus leur temps accroupies sur la cuvette des WC pour se faire vomir que assises dessus. Il faudrait cesser de dire que la femme française est mince, c'est un mythe, elle n'est juste pas obèse ou en surpoids, pour certaines des raisons évoquées, mais aussi simplement parce que les proportions, ça ne nécessite pas forcément manger des petites portions, ça réclame surtout de manger en proportion des efforts que l'on fait : que mangent donc tous ces amateurs de fitness pour supporter autant d'effort ? Des sucres (lents mais aussi des rapides)… La première chose à faire si on est gourmand et qu'on mange plus que nécessaire, c'est d'adopter son mode de transport et de préférer la marche aux transports en commun ou à ces conneries de trottinettes (fabriques à obèses). Mais alors, aller dans une salle de sport un à cinq heures par semaine pour dépenser les calories qu'on prend souvent en plus pour supporter ces efforts violents, ça me dépasse. Le sport comme la nourriture, c'est les excès qu'il faut éviter. (Une femme sans graisse, c'est pas une femme, c'est un tas d'os aussi sexy que la mort, et le temps perdu dans une salle de sport, c'est de la matière grise en moins.) (Ah… quand les magazines prendront comme modèles des Sophia Loren plutôt que des anorexiques de l'Est…)

  78. Parisians are slim because they walk all the time everywhere , here in America people don’t walk , everywhere we go we go in a car

  81. İ'm a stay-at-home wifie so my go-to is to constantly drink water to keep the munchies at bay, but i realize that is not possible if your are outside your home since it requires many potty breaks. İ do a minimum of 2 liters a day of bottled water. But portion size is indeed the most important.


  83. Years ago I purchased and read the book “Why French Women Don’t Get Fat”. I immediately felt better, had more energy and started to slim down. Today I’m about 75 pounds lighter than when I started and maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle. It is basically what these two ladies are saying in this video. Get the freebie!

  84. I would love to see what you eat in a day style video

  85. What is considered overweight body fat? I’m 22 BMI, just looking at the top half of you I don’t see how you could possibly be more than that

  86. Parisian diet is uber eats 😂

  87. Video starts at 3:33

  88. Skip to 3:38. You’re welcome!

  89. Not everyone you see walk in the streets of Paris is Parisian. Tourists, people who study or work abroad, people who have immigrated within a few years do not count as Parisians. I know all about the real Parisians and they do smoke A LOT! they are skinny though. It is the way the eat.

  90. Would you consider doing a chat about less consumerism? Less is more.

  91. You forgot the canabis…. X)

  92. these tips are really great. I think it needs to be mentioned that Perrier is no where near as healthy as water. Perrier was found to have toxic substances which effectively hinder your organs ability to stay clean and function optimally!

  93. If you miss sodas you can try to drink some sparkling water with lemon juice.
    But not lemon syrup with a lot of sugar, lemon juice.
    During summer it's really nice and fresh !

  94. The problem for most women who wants to get slim is misconception that it is only a diet thing. But the key is not only losing weight but gaining muscle tonus. If you want to really shape your body go to gym, get some muscles, lovely feminine curves instead of skinny, emaciated look

  95. French women have more sex, very active trust me

  96. French women are always dieting. The ones I know in the UK don’t mention the word diet but you notice after a while that they just don’t eat

  97. il faut se poser la question différemment!! pourquoi aux usa il y a beaucoup de produits mauvais pour le poids donc la santé ? car les hôpitaux , les consultation des médecins, les médicaments, les traitements … ne sont pas remboursés par leur gouvernement !!! donc plu ils sont gros et malade plu leur gouvernement gagne de l'argent !!! tout le contraire de la france ou tout est remboursés !!!

  98. its annoying how she can't say Parisians correctly – it made it hard to watch this!!! – listen to blondie – she is saying
    it correctly – i can't subscribe because of it!!!

  99. hello

  100. Sadly both of their Instas contain little to no food pics of this challenge. So if you're reading this after the challenge, don't go to their IGs unless you want to know more about their personal lives. They have a lot of pics of themselves and landscapes.
