I love this news article from News24: “French women do get fat“. So yeah, if you eat more calories than you take in, whether that be Big Macs or baguettes, you gain weight.
Paris – Weight-watchers everywhere can breathe a sigh of relief. Contrary to their image as slim models of restraint, French women, it seems, really do get fat.
According to a 2009 study published on Tuesday, 15.1% of France’s women are classed as clinically obese, while a further 26% are overweight.
I’m certainly not celebrating Gallic gargantuaness, of course, but simply nothing that America is not unique in it’s fattening trend.
