Product Description

Product Description

Wouldn’t you rather savor a buttery croissant instead of inhaling an artificially flavored diet shake? Isn’t taking a relaxing stroll preferable to pounding out early morning miles on the treadmill? The French live this way, yet stay thin and healthy. Now, with The French Don’t Diet Plan, you can, too!

In his groundbreaking book, The Fat Fallacy, Dr. Will Clower was the first to present a theory of how the French maintain low obesity and heart disease rates despite their seemingly “unhealthy” lifestyle. Dr. Clower learned that the French don’t worry about dieting but rather are more concerned with how they eat. That means paying attention to the taste, pacing, and enjoyment of meals, instead of counting calories, cutting fat and carbs, or taking guilt trips to the gym.

With The PATH, his revolutionary weight-loss plan, Dr. Clower has helped thousands of people lose weight, lower cholesterol, and increase energy. Now, in The French Don’t Diet Plan, Dr. Clower shows how easy it is to incorporate his remarkably effective techniques and the French lifestyle into a busy American day.

Dr. Clower has found that natural foods have overwhelmingly been pushed out of the American diet by what he calls “faux foods”: processed, additive-filled convenience products, often marketed as healthy with buzzwords like low fat and low carb. In addition, mealtimes should be a slow, sensual break for the body and mind—not a face-stuffing frenzy while standing up in the kitchen or sitting behind the wheel. As a result of such habits, Dr. Clower says, we are not eating what our bodies need, and we’re eating in a way that is not conducive to proper digestion. Science shows this precise combination of factors causes weight gain.

The French approach is about taking the time to enjoy real food without guilt or deprivation. Not only a successful path to becoming thin for life, The French Don’t Diet Plan will help you put joie de vivre back into your relationship with food.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful aid to limiting your intake! 28 July 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I'll start off by saying that I am trained in the biological sciences, I love food and I wanted to lose a bit of weight, not a huge amount, but just that last stubborn bit so I could go down a size to where I was a few years ago, well may be more than a few...I have a real problem when any diet is based on cutting something out: I could never cope with low fat, did better with low carb but I love bread and when the weight snuck back on I just couldn't bear the idea of cutting out potatoes, pasta, rice etc, especially since I cook for other people who had no desire or need to follow me down that particular path. Then I found this book at the local library and was so taken with the advice that I bought the kindle version. This is a sensible approach to simply eating less, with techniques that are based in neuroscience but are easily transferred to the real world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tres Bien! 7 Jun 2012
By HAH
Format:Kindle Edition
I have been following this plan for 8 weeks and have lost 13lb without really trying. I have another 28lb to lose and I have no doubt I will achieve it! More importantly I had felt caught up in a sugar trap where my need to snack was out of control; I desperately wanted to cut out snacks, but never thought I would be able to~I cut them out in 3 days! The most fabulous thing that's happened is that for the first time in my life I am really and truly tasting and enjoying every mouthful of my food. I cannot recommend this book highly enough~it's a life changer! Merci Dr. Clower!

By S. Hunt

Clearly written with clear explanations, as the subject says, it just makes sense. We're looking forward to changing our lives by loving our food and not eating "created" food products. A great buy.
