Am I The Last One To Know?

If the internet and best sellers are to be believed, French women don't get fat because between glorious meals of runny cheese and crispy duck they subside on simply boiled leeks very lightly dressed with olive oil, lemon zest, salt and pepper. In between dipping into very small amounts of the cooked vegetable they -- as the reports seem to go -- drink the cooking liquid. Leeks, mild diuretics, are reported to kick start a weight loss. I'm feeling more French already.
