Ah to live in Paris. Waking in the early morning to the irresistible scent of buttery croissants and other delectable aromas as the fill the air from neighborhood pastry shops. Later you'll take a walk to one of many tiny cheese shops to pick out your favorite cheese. Follow that with a nice bottle of wine. If you were in Paris this would be your life. But, would you be as skinny as the Parisian women? This is the French Paradox.
