The secrets behind how French are more successful at staying slimmer have been revealed.
Portion size is a very important thing with French people, and their portions are about one quarter to half the size of a regular one, Stuff.co.nz reported.
French people also have a different mindset regarding gastronomy, and they believe that one shouldn't deny anything that is being served on the plate, but it should be balanced and in moderation.
Less dairy intake is also one of the reasons why French have a slim figure, as even their coffee cups are smaller in size than the usual and they mostly prefer to drink an espresso without milk or a noisette.
Though French are happy to eat cheese every day, but their servings are usually not more than 40 grams.
In a French home, discussions about what to eat are based on what is needed to buy on the day, and they insist on fresh and seasonal produce.
They also don't believe in skipping meals, as the French would never want you to go hungry but overeating is frowned upon because not having lunch is considered uncivilized.
