A bill now working its way through the French Parliament would ban websites that promote eating disorders through “thinspiration” and starvation tips.

Skinny Guinea advocates an Italian lifestyle, and that means looking and feeling good without deprivation. Skinny Guinea embraces the classic Italian body type for women: curvy, with a little padding in all the right places. To achieve this look, it is essential that you eat really great Italian food and enjoy it immensely. You just don’t want to be a pig about it.

If you’re interested in looking more like Claudia Cardinale than Mary-Kate Olsen, you’ve come to the right place. Stay tuned for upcoming Skinny Guinea spring recipes to keep you looking and feeling properly and proportionally Italian.
