Random Thoughts

I was reading a post at diet blog questioning whether the recession is contributing to the obesity epidemic. All the comments were - no. Writing from Japan I have to agree. Our grocery bill has decreased by half since I started my diet . If you prepare your food at home and buy at the farmer's market, when you can, it is much cheaper than eating junk food.
I'm starting to think,it is easier to be on a diet in Japan than in the west. The selection of food is much less. Basic vegetables are quite cheap you are literally surrounded by healthy food and people who live healthy life styles. Just today, the neighbor girl brought over a huge bag of nira (Chinese leek) from her grandfather's garden.
