You may well be taken aback that the Chairman of R.I.P.O.S.T.E , an international organization of nutritionists that tackles obesity and one of the most incisive campaigners in the fight against global weight problems should write a book in praise of female curves.
“As it is difficult enough as it is to imagine what it is like to help and support people who are clinically overweight, we urgently need to give reassurance to all those women who are normal with natural curves and who nevertheless strive to lose weight”.
Striving to reach a weight that is too low is bound to lead to frustration which sooner or later results in weight gain in reaction to this.
“This is a good-humoured book that came about because of French women’s coy espousal of the unhealthy cult of wanting to be excessively slim”. A rounded figure has nothing to do with being plump or overweight; this is how the body’s most feminine parts are naturally covered and quite simply it enables us to distinguish between a man’s body and a woman’s body and keep alive the desire that stems from this difference.
