photoBest-selling author Mireille Guiliano has a new lifestyle for America's women. Forget about Dr. Atkins and The Zone, she says, and start to think French.

Guiliano's Parisian philosophy is taking best-seller lists in overweight, overstressed America by storm. Across the country, legions of women are throwing out their bad Yankee eating habits and, comme les Francais, are buying leafy green leeks, making homemade yogurt, and learning to savor food without the guilt.

Even the most diet-conscious American women, says Guiliano, can embrace the wisdom that has kept generations of French femme fatales light and lively. It's not a bowl of Special K that will do it, says Mireille Guiliano. It's a state of mind.

Tune in to hear more about the French culture and the French women's secret of svelte.
