Changing my appetite
I am changing my appetite over the coming weeks to get myself out of the habit of having humongous American portions of food. The fact is that over here we're extremely prone to becoming unhealthy fast because of the extreme excess in food portioning. I was fed to absolute bursting at my mother's place recently and she gave me quite a few snacks to take home, that is, tons of sugar cookies and chocolate! I have easily gained 5 pounds in the week of eating them before they expired, which I managed to accomplish but was not rewarded kindly by my body for it! It won't be hard to lose that same amount in a short period, but the fact that it happened (and in sUCH a short time especially!) has opened my eyes to how incredibly unhealthy and pushy this country is about anything involving food (or consumerism in general, really).
