2014 Goodreads Challenge


My third book for the 2014 Goodreads Challenge is French Women Don't Get Facelifts by Mireille Guiliano. Like Guiliano's other book French Women Don't Get Fat, the author has provided insight as to how French women stay vibrant and youthful throughout their lives.  Actually, the advice given in the book seems pretty universal, eat less, more veg and fruit, moderate exercise -- all good advice but the one difference is the author promotes more "natural" ageing and less intervention involving surgeries, drugs, injections, cosmetics, chemicals etc.  She discuses everything from style to supplements to food, even including some recipes -- one of which I intend to try this week.

It was a good book in that it gives women of "a certain age" license to be what we are and to be comfortable in our skin.  I enjoyed reading it.
