More About the Author

Karen Wheeler is an award-winning fashion and beauty writer and former Fashion Editor of the Mail on Sunday newspaper. Born near Liverpool in the north of England, she studied Modern History at Kings College, London University and worked briefly at Sotheby's art auctioneers before embarking on a career in fashion journalism.

During her career she has interviewed many of fashion's top names including Tom Ford, Karl Lagerfeld, Giorgio Armani and Calvin Klein and has written on a regular basis for many national newspapers and supplements including the Financial Times, the Daily Mail, the Sunday Times Style, The Mail on Sunday and ES magazine. She is also a three times winner of the Jasmine Literary award for writing about fragrance.

She moved to France in August 2005 thanks to several random twists of fate, initially planning to stay for a year. Five years and two books later, she is still enjoying 'la vie rurale' and fortunately, most of her neighbours - many of whom feature in Tout Sweet and Toute Allure - are still speaking to her. She is currently working on her third book.

More information about the author can be found on her blog, www.toutsweet.net, which charts her everyday life in France and at www.karenwheeler.co.uk. She also writes a regular column for Living France magazine, in which she shares more tales from the Poitou-Charentes.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Kindle Edition
I was intrigued by this book but to be honest, I didn't think there was anything I could learn from it. The cake I eat every day is homemade and low in fat, the soups I make with the ingredients from our garden are healthy and hearty and having lost over 15 kilos and kept them off for over five years, I was expecting to nod along in agreement, enjoy the snippets she shares of her life in France and benefit from some of her recipes.

It just goes to show that you are never too old to learn something new. Whilst it was reassuring to read that the expert dietician Dr Mabel Blades BSC RD, who helped Karen with this book, agrees with most of my ideas there are definite improvements I can make to my diet.

I was always a soup for lunch girl, having my main meal in the evening as I struggle to be organized to serve a full meal at lunchtime, but having read this book I have had to rethink my day. Karen and Dr Mabel say serving my soup in the evening will really benefit my digestive system. This is in agreement with another diet book I read last year, so with two experts telling me similar things I've been given the kick I needed to make positive changes.

This book is clear, easy to read and with lots of ideas for changes you can make without too much hassle. It is not always what you eat, although that does have to be taken into account, but also when you eat and how you cook, especially what fat you use. It goes without saying homemade will always be better than processed foods. Karen also includes some great soup suggestions and delicious cake recipes as well as her tips as to how she fitted the changes into her life.

If you are looking to shed some kilos, but don't want to feel you are on a diet; this is the book for you.

not much substance, but what the heck. For $4.50 it delivers. I promptly made whole wheat chocolate cookies and ate them for breakfast for a few days ... then I ate them for lunch and dinner so that didn't work out so well. ha!

I bought a Kindle just so I could read this book....and was delighted! I love all of Karen Wheeler's books and this one did not disappoint. I took this book on my vacation & have not yet been able fully try the Marie Antoinette Diet, but I have incorporated a few of the concepts such as the 12 hour fast and a light meal for dinner. I look forward to trying the recipes soon.

Thank you Karen for a fun read and some great lifestyle tips!!!
