It has been a little over 3 months since we moved to Japan and I have noticed that my food preferences are changing. I still crave sugar treats (the Dutchman in me), but crave “bready” items less and have zero cravings for fast food of any type. I have also shed 8lbs. and it isn’t coming back despite my trying to eat a lot.

I just sat there looking at it with zero desire to dig in. Lots of bread, big portion and even though it was from a “fresh baked” shop, I simply didn’t like it. Don’t get me wrong, I sought out bacon and eggs, but the bready food that is such a staple had very little appeal.

Give me sushi, I could eat it every day and my heart will say thanks. Just looking around, that is why you see so many thin – old Japanese people – even if they are crazy for not wearing bike helmets (smile).
