I was on vacation in Paris for some days and CICO is debunked easily by living in France.
>Frenchies eat fuckhuge portions
>Nobody does any sports
>Everyone is TINY AS FUCK
I was surprised to see that being skinny, think 14 year old skinny, is the norm here. Chubby people are rare, fat people were usually tourists.
No big deal, right? Maybe they eat low calorie, maybe they do a lot of exercise? But neither of that is true. Their meals go like this:
>Breakfast: 1 whole baguette, butter, jam orange juice and coffee with milk, tea or hot cocoa
>Lunch: A 3 course meal. I was seen as an odd weirdo for only having the main course. They mostly eat potatoes and beef in various forms and the portions are not small.
>Dinner: The same as lunch, but many will only eat 2 courses (entree or dessert, not both)
I had some trouble finishing the main course on the first evening (it was some very rare done cheeseburger with fries and salad), it got a bit better the next few days. They usually don't eat snacks, but their sandwiches are gigantic. But they usually drink just water, and ofc wine/beer at the meals.
Now, for the exercise: Maybe they walk a lot, but they have very slim, elegant bodies with low bodyfat. They don't have the usual telltale signs of working out like internally rotated shoulders, hyperlordosis, big neck/forearms. They seem completely untrained, but lean.
I am of course quite puzzled. How do they do it? Can any French guy explain?
