It’s like chewing gum at the opera, or fist-pumping Pippa Middleton, but Jenny Craig is now providing premade meals-in-a-box to the small (but growing) contingency of fat-ass Frenchies. Though only 14.5 percent of the France population is obese — as opposed to our lovely 35 percent — in 1997, their rate was only 8.5 percent. That’s a disconcerting rise, maybe having something to do with those taco trucks, and Nestlé, who owns Jenny Craig, is right there to take advantage charge. [NYT]
Don’t be like us.
