I’ve told you already: I’m anti-diet. Especially when I see people feeding themselves exclusively on lettuce and chicken breast. Three months later, they’re rushing out to eat huge quantities of pizza, burgers, and cakes in an attempt to fill the frustration.

That’s not how I lost weight.

I lost weight by doing one thing: learning to listen to my body.

And learning to listen to my body has led me to reduce the amount of food I eat.

No, I’m not hungry when I leave the table. No, I’m not frustrated. No, I’m not hungry between meals — and when I am, I have a snack.

It worked for me, and I’ll tell you why.

No, you don’t have to weigh your food

I was born and raised in France. And the first time I went to the USA, I was struck by something. I was… astonished.

Portion sizes!!!

I was a teenager. I wanted to go to McDonald’s. Oh, I was not disappointed! The French maxi menu, the biggest you can get, is barely equivalent to the average American menu.
