To trigger weight loss, we go on a “vegetable juice and embark on a single-food diet (apple or brown rice)” advises Emilie Kapps, naturopath in Paris (emiliekapps.com).

The fee starts from € 675 (methode-meer.com).

The best one? Boxing! Train at the Noble Art Club (in Paris: nobleartclub.fr) or at the new gym Champion Spirit, founded by the Thai Boxing champion Abdoulaye Fadiga (in Paris: championspirit.com). You can also practice dancing once week. All types of dances: BarreShape at Eléphant Paname (in Paris: elephantpaname.com).
