Myth of thin French women exposed as a survey reveals a third are fat

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

The image of the super-svelte Frenchwoman has taken a battering after a new survey showed more than a third are overweight.

In all, the study found that 19.8 million people out of the country's population of 63 million were too fat, and that 5.9 million of them were obese - 2.3 million more than nine years ago.

"Women appear to be more affected than men," said Professor Arnaud Basdevant, a Paris hospital nutritionist who jointly co-ordinated the study.

[...]

... more than a third of French women are overweight. Far too many drink to excess, with one in 30 consuming enough to be classed as an alcoholic.

More than half of Frenchwomen are thought to be at serious risk from overeating, smoking or drinking.

[...]

Family meals are being replaced by supermarket ready dinners.

[...]

... France has one of the largest number of McDonald's outside America.

"Even in France there are now homes without a dining table. People sit in front of the TV with junk food, saying they are too busy to prepare meals.

Comes as no surprise; I spent a summer in France in 1993 and there were plenty of chubby people there even back then. They still can't hold a candle to Americans in the obesity stakes, though. Not yet anyway. The British are definitely beating the French in this respect, I'd say they're only about five years behind us.
