So most days obviously, I eat Japanese food. Breakfast = miso soup, rice, and egg. Some days we will have a little meat or fish.
There are times when we order Pizza or have other “mall food” like hamburgers, but they are few.
For some reason I just started to think about what I have not eaten in the 2 months that I have been here(going on 3).
Here is a list in no particular order:
- breakfast cereal
- cold cuts
- any Mexican food
- hot dogs/franks
This does not mean that these things are not available here (somewhere), but it does mean that it is either, not easy to get, not cheap, or just not part of a regular diet here.
The most remarkable for me is cheese. It is very expensive and what I have found that is cheap is not good at all. I’d rather not eat it. In NY I would eat a hard block of sharp cheddar like once a month! I am sure my colon is thankful that I moved to Japan.
Perhaps this is why I lost so much weight? I am now 53 kilograms which is 116lbs I believe. It could be that not eating bread, cheese, and tacos weekly changed what my body regards as normal weight. I do not diet and I am still addicted to sugar.But I manage to be thin. I guess my son running around helps too.
I want to do a video on this if I have a chance.
