Someone made a lot of money a few years ago writing and selling a book call "French Women Don't Get Fat". I seem to remember it was based around enjoying your food and everything in moderation and all of that......this is not why French women don't get fat. French women do not get fat because absolutely everything in this city is up a million flights of stairs!
I'm amazed more of these mythical French women don't die from falling out of windows though. It doesn't seem to matter how many floors up you are, the windows open wide and while there are pretty iron railings, they are not that high and there are no screens......and the wine is very cheap. It has been a long day and I am clearly delirious.
