Uuh French eat richer food? I'm French but live in the UK, and am still shocked at the amount of deep fried stuff people eat every day here, or creamy dressings and mayonnaise on a regular basis either here or in the US.

The French maybe have different eating habits etc etc but I appreciate the American ideal of being really fit, going to the gym, outdoor sports and how that's been changing over the last few years. I think we should get credit for being a very sporty society - e.g. the first time i ran the houston 1/2 marathon in jan of 2005 i signed up like 5 days before . . this year the race was at 100% capacity (including the marathon) on july 5th . . I think that says something really great about how Americans are becoming a more heath conscious society . . . anyways i still have to love the french i'm marrying one :D
