HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY everybody!

Only 11 percent of the French women are obese, compared to nearly a third of Americans. Many of the basic recommendations in the best selling "French Women Don't Get Fat" are just nutritional and fitness common sense:

*Eat at regular times.

*Increase the proportion of fresh fruits and vegetables you eat.

*Shun prepared foods, especially processed foods "with artificial anything."

*Have a real breakfast.

*Add a "small but regular new physical movement, a daily walk or climbing stairs."

*Don't stock "offenders"- the high-calorie, fatty foods that derail your healthy eating-in your home.

*There's a connection between sleeping too little and gaining weight.

Good advise, I plan to do a bit more walking myself to stay fit.

Thanks for dropping by.

Hi; thanks for your comment. I've heard the same thing, and I ache for all those mothers who will one day realize what they've done. Abortion wounds the woman too. Keep praying.
