Basically, she populates a small plate with foods she enjoys ... then savors it ... and then she's done. Many times I've seen her physically push away other options.
And dessert for her might be *a* chocolate. Or, she might share dessert with someone else. And by sharing I mean three bites and she's done.
BTW, she NEVER exercises and she's slimmer, often much slimmer than female peers of hers who are half her age.
Yup. There has to be SOME reason why we have the most gyms, trainers (sorry), etc and are one of the fattest nations around.
I lived in Switzerland for almost 4 years and barely saw anyone in the gym. People in there were guys bulking up and Americans. Virtually NO french/swiss women. Hmmmm
