French Women Don’t Get Fat is a diet for people who want to lose weight, but who don’t want to count calories and who like the idea of drinking wine, eating chocolate and cheese. Naturally, there’s a lot more to this diet than French dietary stereotypes. Essentially, this diet is based on the principles of Mireille Guiliano, who is also the author of “French Women Don’t Get Fat: The Secret of Eating for Pleasure.”

According to Guiliano, you can achieve weight loss success by eating three meals a day at regular times. Choosing quality over quantity in the foods you select, eating this high-quality food in small portions and savoring every bite of the food that you eat is equally important. In addition, you should engage in walking for exercise and do some weight training, as well as keep good posture and breathe properly.

More specifically, in regard to following the French Woman Don’t Get Fat diet, this weight loss plan has four phases:

1 – The Wake-Up Call – Keep track of what you eat for three weeks to determine which foods you should add or remove from your diet. .

2 – Getting Started – For three months you will learn about French food, proper portion sizes and focus on drinking lots of water.

3 – Stabilization – Use new tools to reach and maintain your goal weight.

4 – The Rest of your Life – The lifestyle habits you created are now permanent.

As for what you can eat, you’ll begin the first two days of this diet with a semi-fast where you will eat only leek soup and drink lots of water. From there you will continue to drink lots of water but will begin adding vegetables, fruit and fish to your diet until you start to eat based on the daily menu samples that are available in Guiliano’s book or online on the diet’s official webpage.

Essentially, Guiliano recommends eating an array of fresh and seasonal ingredients with many herbs and seasonings. She also recommends eating two servings of yogurt per day. Wine and champagne (not liquor) is permitted, as are sweets in very small amounts.


No foods are actually forbidden on this diet. Once you’ve become accustomed to your new dietary lifestyle, you’ll be able to enjoy foods like cheese, chocolate and wine without guilt. Guiliano also recommends to her followers to treat themselves to a “civilized” portion of some of their favorite foods once a day every week.

Most of the recipes for this diet are quite simple and require less than 10 ingredients. Everything you need to know can be found in her book or online. Plus, the official website offers additional information and has a community that lets you connect with others who are following this plan.

You can lose weight following this diet as long as you adhere to its principles and combine eating only high-quality food in small portions and eating slowly with exercise.


Some people may find this diet difficult to follow at first, as it does require you to stick to a specific formula for the first three months, so you can adopt new habits. It also requires you to have only soup and water for the first two days. Guiliano claims that her leek soup will help to promote weight loss, but there is zero evidence to back up her claim.

The French Women Don’t Get Fat diet may be ideal for individuals with varied dietary tastes and needs but may not be ideal for someone who needs to lose a lot of weight. Either way, if you want to try this diet, speak with your doctor first before incorporating it into your lifestyle.
