Mireille Guiliano told her own experience when she was a French teenage girl who became fat because she lived in America as an exchange student delegates. When she returned to France, Mireille trying to lose weight with the help of a family physician. Diet in accordance with the tradition of French women. Not an extreme diet that did not last long, but the diet gradually by using the mind. Not a diet that torture, but an enjoyable diet. Think of the first pattern should be changed to be able to run a successful diet.
French diet which Mireille applied it took three months to run. That is the reordering phase. In the first three weeks of recorded profiles need to eat to find out the "enemy" which makes the body's main fat. "Enemy" must be properly identified and removed without having to suffer. If you can run a basic reordering of the stage for three months, then it's time to enter the stage of stabilization.
Mireille include special recipes for reordering stage. There are also special recipes for stabilization phase. Perhaps some of the ingredients of recipes written by Mireille rarely used in your kitchen, but everything can be obtained at the supermarket. French Women more concerned with quality, not quantity. So they are no problem paying a little pricey for the quality. Choosing a good natural food is a universal heritage of France.
I'd love to try making the recipe Mireille cuisine. Most are very simple and did not take long to make. I wonder what it feels like. It might be a bit bland when seen from the composition because the French had little use sugar in their cooking. They rely more on natural sweetness of the fruit (for main dishes made from fruit). This is where the importance of quality ingredients.
French women eat little but often and varied. So eating activities will not cause boredom. But the French diet is not only about the quality and quantity of food, but includes a whole lifestyle.
I think this book is great as a guide to a healthy diet. If you are interested, try to buy this book and practice. If cooking is not according to your taste, try to mix with the materials commonly used in your area. Not cooking is important, but a healthy lifestyle itself.
