The Real French Diet

It is that time of the year. After 2 weeks of food decadence , your clothes seem to have shrunk. Maybe used hot water instead of warm was used for the laundry but most probably your body as expended. Time for “le regime”, la diete. There are lots of legends about French women. I read that they could eat anything in moderation. It is BS. French women diet all the time. Some of them in a healthy way, others yes but just eating a little bit of high calorie food so it does not amount to too many calories.Typically one stops eating starches, sugars and fat. No potatoes, cheeses, bread, butter, desserts…Then we focus on staples that are filling and low in calories which are:

Fruits
Vegetables (steamed)
Crudites
low fat/low calorie yogurts
Vegetable soups (potages)
Ham
Tuna (no mayo)
Grilled Fish
Grilled chicken

Voila

Karl Lagarfeld is just not that into women, that’s all

“These are fat mummies sitting with their bags of crisps in front of the television, saying that thin models are ugly” Now that’s a great quote to stir up trouble. Karl Lagarfeld is a very talented man.Like any artist he has a higher standard of esthetics that drive his inspiration. His is mostly women with no shape whose body look androgynous. He can’t control that. I work in the fashion industry and most runway models are oddities of nature . Some of them do owe their shape to their genetic pool. Most of them are starving and usually have to control their hunger with pills or worse. Karl Lagarfeld sells a fantasy , that fantasy destroys lives. Most women with normal bodies do not spend their lives in front of the TV eating chips. Lots of artists from Botero to Rubens and Fellini have been inspired by the other end of the spectrum, extra curves. I think that it is no secret that Karl likes men and his ideal is a skinny man/woman. Good for him, but it does not give him the right to mentally torture young girls and housewives.
