Those blasted French and their self control

without comments

It’s tough to summarize something when they do such a concise job doing it with the article headline. The gist of the article (and it’s a short one) is that french people tend to eat until their full, and we tend to use external cues as to when we’re full (the TV show is over, our plate is clean, etc) and this has an effect on how much of our butt their is. My grandfather used to only eat when he was hungry, and occasionally this was only once or twice a day, occasionally more than three times a day, and it was rarely at 7AM, Noon, and 5PM, and he was always a lean man.
