I may be the only fitness trainer in America (soon to be Not Another Fitness Trainer) who asks questions like, "Do the French go to fitness centers ?"
Someone in the audience will usually respond along the lines, "Yeah, but they're more active than we are. That's why we go to fitness centers, to make up for it."
And my counter-response is usually along the lines, "We think we're so clever because we've found a surrogate for general activity. But we're apparently too stupid to know that we can increase general activity."
Yes, I do chuckle when I say things like this.
Ha. Literally just wrote something about french women on another thread.
Bottom line is that they drink wine - but maybe two glasses. They eat food, but small portions. And I swear there's something "there" with regards to the hormones and preservatives in our food. I lost weight when I moved to Geneva. And I ate more bread, cheese and chocolate than ever. Mmmm. Fondue.
