If being sedentary, overeating fatty foods, overdoing sugar-heavy drinks, and endless snacking are among the surest ways to gain fat, you needn’t worry about your weight in France. To begin with, you’re not likely to be sedentary as you go about your touring days. And you’ll find yourself doing less unhealthy snacking along the way. Even if you enjoy a daily éclair and a plate of fries, you’ll find that most processed and junk foods are easily avoided. Specific nutritional needs aside, the perfect Paris diet requires long walks and eating anything at the table, and that in turn requires no more willpower than the desire to explore France in the first place.
