My dear pal KP has a friend who moved to Paris last year. Her friend was 65 pounds overweight and was done with fighting the scale. After six months in France, eating whatever she wanted (brie, wine, baguettes) and living the French lifestyle (high heels, metro, hot French boyfriend) this friend lost all the extra weight and then some, without trying.
KP is a stay-at-home mom who lives in Burbank, California. She is tired of running half-marathons and downing protein shakes just for the treat of having to roll on a Spanx to get into her jeans. She has decided to try it the French way. Her Parisienne friend, who goes by the online moniker "Shaboom," is writing down everything she eats and all her physical activity for the next six months (Allo, hot French boyfriend!) so that KP can copy her every move.
KP is going to get French Skinny.
They are blogging leur voyage on The French Skinny Experiment.
The whole deal is just super excellent.
Vive les carbs!
