4.0 out of 5 stars An honest look at the french diet August 2, 2012
By Jewel
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read a few books about the french diet and while I've understood the basic principles (fresh food, small portions, quality over quantity etc), the books haven't really given me the insight into the reason why the french diet works. I really enjoyed reading this book as I believed it was quite honest about some of the tactics used by french women to maintain their weight. Some of the other books hinted at these but none actually described them in detail. I guess because they're a little controversial (eg, skipping meals - I was horrified at first when I read about this but the author explains it well and it made perfect sense in the right context). I liked the writing style which was to the point and at times very funny. The only downside I thought were the recipes at the end of the book; I thought they were unnecessary and that the book stood well enough on its own without them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Plan for Eating February 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like this book. I have read a lot of diet books in my life. I own an impressive amount of cookbooks, some of them "diet" ones. Of them all, for me, this one makes the most sense. I am not French nor have I been to France. Given that, I will not comment on whether or not what is said about France or French women is true. I am an American and much of what was said about us, in my opinion, is sadly true. The author gives solid advice that in reality you probably know. She also refers to this in the book. I don't know why but sometimes you just need to be told, or to read it, to get the message. The fact that she writes like a friend talking to you, I think helps you digest the message. It's an easy, fast read. I started it planning to just glance through and read later. I ended up reading it straight through, highlighting and bookmarking as I read. It is a book I would recommend to friends and family. I read it on a KFire. It looked good on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Advice from a girlfriend that works.... August 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am down 20 pounds so far. The book just takes us back to common sense: real foods, limited amounts, movement. I appreciate that I am not expected to eat 6 times a day because that just keeps my focus on food. I find it an elegant food plan that is simple to remember and follow.

The author states things clearly and concisely. If you have this you have a lot books on the same theme in a nutshell. I love it and it is well done for the kindle which isn't always the case, even with kindle versions of far more expensive books. Great book, great price, well written.

2.0 out of 5 stars read Dr. Will Clower January 12, 2012
By medvlit
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Jenna Davis needs to read Dr. William Clower's book, THE FRENCH DON'T DIET PLAN, to see how French people really regard the topics of food and weight. Some of her very American suggestions would set me up for failure. Not impressed.
