Additional Information

With wit and wisdom, The French Twist: Twelve Secrets of Decadent Dining and Natural Weight Management explores the French attitudes of reverence and respect for food and dining. Based on a desire to take the American obsession with weight and fitness in a new direction, it exposes the shortcomings of quick-fix fad diets, encourages readers to examine their unique connections to food, and asks them to abandon their fears about eating and to reject such common myths as the idea that to lose weight we need to eat less and exercise more. Among the secrets the book reveals are the importance of eating authentic and high-quality food, and the role of pleasure and balance in proper nutrition and successful weight management. Throughout, the French approach is validated by up-to-date science on metabolism as it relates to the psychology of eating.

I've read several "French living" books, but this one is written by a nutritionist, well researched, and practical. The writer is smart and witty, and she brings a great perspective to how we view and respect (or do not respect) food and how it fuels our bodies. I've learned the value of really good, organic food, and the book has helped me slow down to eat, eat what I crave, and feel good about eating again. I've given it to my boyfriend to read, and we've used some of the recipes she offers (definitely try the champagne vinaigrette). A truly smart read, to read again and again.
This is an entertaining, insightful, and life changing approach to the obsession we all share with our health, but more specifically weight management. Actually, I think it's spot on. I've spent enough time in France with close French friends, and can say yes, yes and yes to the writer's thesis. The French do it differently... Meals are savored, never experienced as drive byes. The ingredients are fresh, lovingly prepared, and beautifully presented. Last summer I traveled to Corsica with my friends on holiday, and we set the table, used real linens, fresh, local ingredients.. It seems like a dream now, remembering sitting on the upstairs porch overlooking a valley of fragrant fruit trees, enjoying every day's repast...always interacting with each other. There's no describing the lemon cake made with freshly picked lemons... or the salad made with that days catch: a speared octopus.. No calimari ever tasted better. I digress. This book is one I will read and reread, to remind myself... Read more
I began to become more and more engrossed with Carol Cottrill's book The French Twist: Twelve Secrets of Decadent Dining and Natural Weight Management as I turned each page because while most books focused on helping the reader lose weight preaching restrictive, non-commonsensical prescriptives, Cottrill through her knowledge as a certified nutritionist prescribes a permanent lifestyle enhancement based on understanding how the body communicates with food. And it is the French lifestyle that is her muse.

Having traveled to France multiple times and then returned to apply their pleasure and balance focused principles to her way of living, she offers through first-hand experience coupled with science based research why the French paradox does indeed work and even more specifically why the American's approach to weight management is less likely to have one's good health as a top priority.

A few of the many insightful, aha tips found in the book:
