I have lived in China for two years now. The first year I was successful in losing weight, mainly because I didnt know what to order in restaurants and because my apartment was on the fifth floor with no elevator and we walked almost everywhere we went because we couldnt tell a taxi where to take us:)
BUT now we live in an apartment that has access to an elevator and do know how to order foods and take a taxi more:( Convenience is nice, but not necessarily healthy! I have gained 10 pounds this year!
We have one "western" restaurant in town where we can get salads and grilled chicken, beef etc. so we try to eat a salad everyday.
I don't shop or cook much which is probably not good but it is just too much mafan!
I used to order fried rice but now try to stick to steamed rice and also eggs and tomatoes are popular in our city, that is healthier,
Good luck on learning the language. I have found that the younger you are the easier it is to learn...so I am horrible at speaking:O LOL!
Have a blessed day!!!!!
