And at French - so...

Hello! I want to share the strongest impressions, just holds apart!

Ya, as well as most of women of the our present, it is entirely absorbed by a problem “as if to grow thin“. If to be up to the end frank, I and all of us perfectly know how. And we know how, a set of ways. But here the trouble, all these ways suit only ladies with unrestrained will power. And it is the best of all - to mobile girls who in general not really like to eat. Though they - that are just not absorbed by this problem...

And so, once again discussing this sad subject with girlfriends, I got a valuable advice. To read Mireille Guiliano`s book “Why Frenchwomen do not get fat“. Only please, do not think that I draw interest from sales from publishing house! Book really very interesting.

the Essence it is reduced by

to what the author - very pleasant and rich elderly lady (the Frenchwoman, it is natural) - advises all women not to take a steam bath with diets and sport, and simply - naprosto to live as Frenchwomen. They, as we know, are on the whole harmonous and elegant. As an antipode of Frenchwomen in the book unfortunate Americans act. Fat, slow, wallowed in various complexes and not knowing how to cook at all.

the Other countries and nationalities, including we, in the book (thank God!) are not mentioned. I will not retell contents to whom it is necessary, that will read, but the main and strongest impression on me was made by the description of the childhood of the author. I, of course, do a discount that over the years memories of the childhood of everyone become covered gently - a pink caramel patina. Even my own childhood in a communal flat and solyanka with sausages which was cooked by mother (solyanka tasty still!) seem at all not such what they were then. But that childhood which describes Mireille... it too.

As they lived! As they ate! What smells they inhaled!!! Even if to divide all this into three, luxury unprecedented. And it was the average French family. Several children, miraculously preparing mother, the family doctor, the gardener and, of course, the nurse. Many pages are devoted to this nurse in the book. Nian Ivette - young and beautiful for which the groom waits eternally and she with pleasure potters with kids. Feeds them with various French soups and the French desserts. Tells amusing stories, teaches and even abuses, generally, brings up.

Parents are present at this idyllic picture too, but do not dominate in it. I think, the father of family had not enough time for communication with children, mother was busy too (as there is an impression, generally at a plate). But there is no offense on parents for it, on the contrary. Harmony is the sheer.

I Think, a secret that Mireille`s parents managed to find the person who organically entered a family. And still, most likely the perception of life of this nurse completely corresponded to perception of life of her owners. And owners are cheerful persons, gourmets, esthetes. Generally, French...

Of course, such childhood, as they say, is not in vain. I do not know whom other children in this family grew up. The author of the book became the president of corporation of sparkling Clicquot wines, the successful publicist and just very happy woman. To me all this to liking. Though I and not the Frenchwoman.

it is beautiful to p to live - the art available to much. It is only necessary to want. And the main thing - not in external attributes and not in the money spent for it. The main thing - to see beauty in this life, to be able to take it from everything and to savor small pieces. To be able to snatch out the beautiful moment from the most everyday picture, to frame it and to hang up on a wall of the consciousness. To try to surround itself with the empathizing people if it in your forces. For this purpose it is not obligatory to be the artist or the Frenchman, it is just necessary very much to want to be happy...
