... and still manage to lose weight! I've just survived 12 days in The Land of Plenty and returned home to France feeling like Bloaty the Bloated Bloatfish.

I found it so difficult to resist all the delights of the British supermarket and takeaway - plus I felt obliged to show my French OH the best of British too. So we had fish and chips, curry, roast dinners (mum-style not SW style), crumpets, hot cross buns, toasted teacakes, Wendsleydale (the French just don't do crumbly cheese - unless someone knows otherwise?).

Anyway, I take my hat off to you all because I'm not sure I could resist all that temptation all tha time. I know that France has its own temptations, but I live in the country where take-aways don't exist, neither do convenience foods and supermarkets close at 7pm and all day Sunday.

Mind you, I do envy the free foods you can get - I managed to squeeze in some Mullerlights and came home with a suitcase full of Splenda & Frylight!

Well BaysideJ, I enjoy my cheese - often have it as all 4 HE when not on an EE. The wine is lovely, but I syn it in moderation. The bread I avoid totally, cos once I start I can't stop and I love it with lashings of French butter. I find that bread actually bloats me and makes me sluggish unless toasted.

oooh whenever I go to France I always have to make sure I get loads of exercise. Nothing better than a fresh croissant, or a tartine for breakfast. Same with the wine, the coq au vin, etc etc :)
