cook your meals at home. that way you know exactly what you’re eating and have control over the unhealthy ingredients. carry around healthy snacks with you so they’re always convenient.

I studied in Beijing for a month, and I found that the Chinese food there is much fresher and healthier than that found in the US.  I would suggest eating a lot of veggies– in fact, while I was there I ate strictly vegetarian.  Also, as tempting as it is– avoid American fast food restaurants.

I had the same problem.  I gained 50 pounds over two years in Japan.  🙁  The good news is that now that I’m in the States again, the pounds are melting off.

Beijing winter is hell on diets! Sign up for the Great Wall Marathon and get training – that’s how I lost 7k after my first 5 month winter in hibernation!
