Wouldn't you rather savor a buttery croissant instead of inhaling an artificially flavored diet shake? Isn't taking a relaxing stroll preferable to pounding out early morning miles on the treadmill? The French live this way, yet stay thin and healthy. Now, with "The French Don't Diet Plan", you can, too! In his groundbreaking book, "The Fat Fallacy", Dr. Will Clower was the first to present a theory of how the French maintain low obesity and heart disease rates despite their seemingly "unhealthy" lifestyle. Dr. Clower learned that the French don't worry about dieting but rather are more concerned with how they eat. That means paying attention to the taste, pacing, and enjoyment of meals, instead of counting calories, cutting fat and carbs, or taking guilt trips to the gym. With The PATH, his revolutionary weight-loss plan, Dr. Clower has helped thousands of people lose weight, lower cholesterol, and increase energy. Now, in "The French Don't Diet Plan", Dr. Clower shows how easy it is to incorporate his remarkably effective techniques and the French lifestyle into a busy American day. Dr. Clower has found that natural foods have overwhelmingly been pushed out of the American diet by what he calls "faux foods" processed, additive-filled convenience products, often marketed as healthy with buzzwords like low fat and low carb. In addition, mealtimes should be a slow, sensual break for the body and mind--not a face-stuffing frenzy while standing up in the kitchen or sitting behind thewheel. As a result of such habits, Dr. Clower says, we are not eating what our bodies need, and we're eating in a way that is not conducive to proper digestion. Science shows this precise combination of factors causes weight gain. The French approach is about taking the time to enjoy real food without guilt or deprivation. Not only a successful path to becoming thin for life, "The French Don't Diet Plan" will help you put joie de vivre back into your relationship with food.
