As fate would have it...in month 4 (and a kilo from my goal weight) of my new found love of food and wine French women diet... I fell pregnant! I know it's no excuse but any expecting mum will tell you...the fun goes out of eating for those first 12 weeks, and I, as they say, fell off the wagon.
I can't diet, I hate deprivation and I love food. So telling me to cut out all bread forever is just a no-no. I end up cutting it out for three days then smashing as much freshly baked goodness in my face on day four...but Mireille Guiliano's book - French Women Don't get Fat - is a promise that she'll reintroduce you to the love of food, fresh ingredients, amazing combinations and the odd delicious pastry. Also she promises I wont have to give up wine. One of my most favourite things in the world, is a spectacular wine!
