Please read until the end of the article: weight-loss secret #5 is the most important and the most effective!

Weight-loss secret #1: FOCUS

Following the French approach to eating meals will help you feel your best: whenever you eat, EAT.

Focus. Yes, focus.

Be aware of your food: it feeds your cells, your body, your mind and makes you who you are.

Food is life so give the food the presence it deserves… at every meal.

Weight-loss secret #2: RELAX

Relaxing is a weight-loss secret

Sit and relax…

Have you noticed that when you ‘stress eat’, you feel bloated and heavier after your meal? If you aren’t relaxed, the assimilation of nutrients is jeopardised.

If you aren’t relaxed, the assimilation of nutrients is jeopardised.

Sit and relax. Don’t eat on the go. Never.

Don’t eat on the go. Never.

Allow yourself, at least during your meals, to forget about your worries. Make each mealtime a stress-free experience.

Weight-loss secret #3: BREATHE before you eat

Oxygen is key to our metabolism and is known to promote the assimilation of nutrients.

Take long deep breaths before you eat: 5 is good, 10 is great, 15 is fantastic.

Weight-loss secret #4: LOOK

Look at your food.

LOOK at the colours, the texture, the fine details.

A few seconds are enough to make you appreciate the beauty of your meal.

Weight-loss secret #5: CHEW – the most important!

As we say in France, “ton estomac n’a pas de dents”: your stomach doesn’t have teeth!

Chewing before swallowing is critical to breaking down your food and optimising the digestion of nutrients. I know it’s difficult; sometimes I still need to remind myself to chew properly. It’s one of the keys to successful and sustained weight loss.

You might have tried to chew more before and given up, but please try again. Here’s how to do it:

After each bite, put your fork down and chew until the food is almost liquid in your mouth. Then swallow. It takes practice but if you’re persistent, it can quickly become a habit. You will naturally eat much less, which inevitably leads to losing weight, a lot of weight!

You easily can end up eating 20 to 30% less, without feeling deprived: that feeling of hunger stops 20 minutes after you start eating and chewing properly makes you slow down so when you reach 20 minutes, you won’t have had eaten as much as usual. You will feel satisfied so will stop eating.

Simple and super effective.


100% guarantee.
