Fat Parisians?

Lurker | Mar 11, 2002 05:23 PM

So, uh, where are the fat Parisians?

We just returned are were flumoxed as to how everyone appeared +/- 10% of their ideal bodyweight, yet were constantly observed cramming brioche or foie gras or steak frites down their pieholes, errr, croisant-holes. Seriously, I'm curious if anyone has any insight. Various theroy's fronted were;

A) Coffee/caffiene make their metabolism run faster
B) Lots of walking, catching the Metro, etc.
C) Some sort of bizzare high protien/Atkins diet.
D) They all are on meth.

Anyone one have any ideas?
