Eating "sensibly" in Paris

hychka | Mar 21, 2014 07:39 PM

I have a couple of medical problems being monitored. My DRS and various coaches want me to consider "sensible eating while we are in France" (is that an oxymoron as my helpers suggest?) for nearly eight weeks this May/June. 31 days will be in Paris.

I have to wonder as many faithful on this thread must be my age or older...approaching 70... how can you eat the food regularly discussed and stay healthy?

How does one do a four hour meal with regularity?

Do French restaurants provide specific info on their menu's content in terms of sodium, fats, calories, etc for my chief coach, my wife, to ponder before she let's me order?

I need to know your strategies for staying at a healthy weight given the tremendous temptations available on any block in the city.

Of course we could eat home meals prepared from fresh air markets in our apartment, and will on some days; but, I don't get the feeling you regulars do that.

So what are your secrets?

Or are you all obese? (Don't take offense as I am, sadly, obese.)
