Have you ever wondered the French women’s secret to staying slim? How do they manage to eat cheese, butter, baguettes, and drink wine while staying slim?
A few weeks ago I was in London, France and Belgium working with my Itworks! Team. My goal was to train and teach the ITworks! way and plant seeds for global expansion. What I learned along the way was life changing for me and I know will be for you also! To my great surprise while enjoying all the local flavors I actually LOST weight during my 10 day stay!!! Of course being Fitcoach Carla I now had to figure out HOW??
Basically what I did was ate only good food of very high quality, small portions and loved every bite! From chocolate in Belgium, fish n chips in London, shortbread with afternoon tea and Chocolate croissant and lattes in Paris. I ate slowly, and made every dining experience pleasurable so I was satisfied with smaller portions of delicious food. No food was off limits! I didn’t worry about calories, sugar, gluten, fat… I just ate, enjoyed and stopped when I was full.
Being on a tight schedule also left no time for exercise so I could not say I “worked” it off? I did however walk everywhere and noticed most people did. I walked everywhere I needed to go some days all day long. I was active but enjoyed it because there was so much to see. I did take my ItsGreens and increased my water. When travelling that is so important to stay hydrated and immune system working at top function. I really felt great even with the 5-6hr time change, train rides, tube travel and several flights.
My conclusion… French women’s secret to staying slim; they enjoy food, life and friends. This is what is truly satisfying!!! So much so my body let go of excess weight and toxins simply because I created an environment of good whole food, great fresh air and fabulous new friends.
