FRANCE HEALTH TIP:
CUT YOUR PORTION SIZE
Food portions served in restaurants in Paris are about 25 per cent smaller than in the US. This may explain why the French enjoy rich foods – such as croissants and cheeses – without gaining weight. “While the French eat more fat than Americans, they probably eat slightly fewer calories, which when compounded over years can amount to substantial differences in weight,” said Paul Rozin, professor of psychology at the University of Pennsylvania.
