The French Diet: Why French Women Don't Get Fat ebook

by Michel Montignac


In "The French Diet," Montignac no longer seems caught up with adhering to his former strict dichotomy between carbs and fats. Now refreshingly, he turns his attention on the concept of GO or glycemic outcome as an explanation of the so-called French Paradox.

Nutritionist Montignac explains that this not only has to do with which foods the French choose to eat, but their quality, freshness, and most importantly, the way that they are combined. Although the book is based on the concept of glycemic index (GI), which other diet books discuss, this is the only book that provides the net GI values of combined foods-for example, when you dip a slice of bread in olive oil, its GI drops by 25 percent.

In my book French Women Don’t Get Fat, I tell the story of how, after studying in the US for a year in university, I came back to France having gained a significant amount of weight.

Why Don't French People Get Fat? . There are a lot of stereotypes about French people that us Americans throw around all willy-nilly: they make dope food, are unabashedly romantic, wear berets, carry baguettes, and also, are skinny

Why Don't French People Get Fat? By Carrie Dennis Published On 01/05/2016. There are a lot of stereotypes about French people that us Americans throw around all willy-nilly: they make dope food, are unabashedly romantic, wear berets, carry baguettes, and also, are skinny. At least four of those five characteristics are incontestably true (try it! try to contest it!), but it’s the last one that is perhaps the most compelling to a weight-conscious American. I lived in France with a French family for several months. During this time I ate baguette sandwiches with butter and cheese, one thousand croissants, and chocolate after every meal, every day.

If you are looking to dine and look like the French, I highly recommend Michel Montignac's The French Diet over the greatly hyped French Women Don't Get Fat by Mireille Guiliano. Monsieur Montignac's recommendations are reasonable, balanced (he recommends the Zone-like 40-30-30 carb-protein-fat method) and based on real science, i.e., eating according to the GI Index can help you lose weight and stay healthy. He permits treats like wine and chocolate now and then and does not completely rule out any food group, which I think is the key to developing a lifestyle program rather than a crash diet that will later come back to haunt you, your metabolism and your scale! On the other hand, when I read Madame Guiliano's book, I felt like she was simply tauting her own version of eating (albeit, she is French), without real scientific background, and it also seemed like during the entire book she was holding French women up on a pedestal and in so doing criticizing the rest of the world for our traditions. I own many, many health, nutrition, fitness and diet books, but eating according to the GI Index has helped me not only lose those last 20 pounds and get extremely lean, but also to keep off those pounds (which is something I was not able to do before). This book, along with The GI Diet and Living the GI Diet by Rick Gallop and Dr. Sears' A Week in the Zone (all of which utilize the idea of balance and eating with the GI Index in mind), are truly the keys to not only achieving your weight loss goals, but also true health.

One of the few books I love because of the simple breakdown of recipes & how the diet works. Lost 45 lbs in under a month but still ate freat food & opened up my palate to new foods & combinations of flavors.

In the wake of Mireille Guiliano's runaway best selling lifestyle memoir, "French Women Don't Get Fat," French dieting guru Michel Montignac reformats his popular "Montignac Method" for an American audience and renames it "The French Diet: The Secrets of Why French Women Don't Get Fat." His secret? Eat real food with a low average glycemic index.

Anyone familiar with Montignac's theories which were rather flagrantly adapted over ten years ago by the creators of the Sugarbusters regime and Suzanne Somers' Somersizing system and worked over to create million dollar dieting empires replete with how-to books, recipes, web sites, food products and a variety of other spin-offs including teeth whitening agents, will appreciate this compact volume that spits out the dieting principles in a minimum of pages, succinctly explains why the diet will work for life and facilitates even the most unimaginative dieter with complete menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner with accompanying recipes.

In the mid-eighties, Montignac wrote "Dine Out and Lose Weight," in sympathy for business people everywhere like himself that had gained too much weight from heavy business dinners and couldn't see a way to remain polite without the need of going up a waist size. Simply stated, he forbid the consumption of high glycemic carbohydrates with fats and proteins, explaining that the insulin release from increased blood sugar levels stores the fats ingested rather than burns them for energy. Montignac Method meals then, were either carbohydrate based or protein/fat based. Only on the maintenance phase of the diet were some lower glycemic carbohydrates allowed to ride side-car with their fattier macronutritional counterparts. Strictly forbidden on any phase were the usual suspect high-glycemic demons of sugar, white flour and other processed foods.

In "The French Diet," Montignac no longer seems caught up with adhering to his former strict dichotomy between carbs and fats. Now refreshingly, he turns his attention on the concept of GO or glycemic outcome as an explanation of the so-called French Paradox. Roughly speaking, GO takes an "average" look at the glycemic index of the entire meal, rather than its individual components. For example, eating a potato (admittedly a bad example as potatoes are forbidden on phase 1) with a high GI should be balanced with the consumption of really low glycemic, high fiber vegetables, keeping the entire GO to a level of 50 or less. For Montignac, keeping a meal at a GO level of less than 35 will result in weight loss. Anything above 50 will start packing that fat back into its favorite storage location -- your abdomen.

In addition, he throws out standard nutritional definitions categorizing carbs as either slow of fast burning, refuses to believe that caloric input and output (in the form of exercise) monitors weight loss or gain and adheres strictly to the premise that selecting foods based on their nutritional value and the effects they have on metabolism is the secret to maintaining one's weight for life. Under Montignac's plan, carbs are no longer public enemy number one and fats, the bad boys of the AHA regime are, no surprise, great if they are either omega 3 or monounsaturated fatty acids-saturated fats are used sparingly and trans fats are a no-no. As expected, proteins should be selected by origin - the best choices, of course, being fish, chicken, turkey, etc. Foods labeled as `funky'(combinations of carbs and fats like nuts and tofu) by similar food combining plans are thankfully no longer `funky' on this one.

If you thought "French Women Don't Get Fat," fun to read, but contained little dieting tenets, you will like Montignac's "The French Diet". His easy-to-understand format feeds into the American need for empiricism with just enough layman friendly science backed by hard facts and medical studies. The bottom line? Following a balanced diet of real food while tweaking the glycemic index to your best interest puts all current dietary fads to shame.
