Sexy Diets Around the World: Florence, Italy
When I was in Florence, Italy, I noticed two things:
1) The city was only the size of Waco, Texas, but it was crawling with beautiful women. I had to shoo them away from the windowsill every time I wanted some fresh air at the hotel.
2) After my testosterone levels stabilized I noticed that Florentines as a whole seemed a lot leaner than my fellow Texans (A definite contributor to the hotness factor).
Looking at how they ate and lived, several things impressed me:
1) Food was more expensive, so you ate less.
2) Although the food was more expensive, you did get what you paid for. It was good food.
3) Vegetables all over the place: celery, carrots, and onions constitute the “trinitario” of Florentine cooking.
4) You walked everywhere. Although this probably has some health benefits by itself, when you’re walking, you’re not eating.
5) The vegetables weren’t exactly slowing down their meat and cheese consumption. I had the delight of tasting Bisteca Fiorentina, the sort of massive steak I thought only existed in Western states and served by guys named Buford.
6) And nothing was slowing down their alcohol consumption either. More wine and hard liquor than beer was being consumed.
I have difficulty thinking of the physical differences I noticed as purely genetic; look at American Italians:
