So unsurprisingly, after a few months in California I did end up gaining a significant amount of weight … Well to me anyway. You could say 11lbs is not much in the grand scheme of things but I do tend to notice a 10 pounds gain on myself.
And the whole time I was trying to keep up with the gym and other activities like hikes ! But unfortunately that wasn’t really enough to fend off the delicious but greasy fast food.
Is it impossible to not gain weight in America ? Absolutely not ! Of course you can stay fit as long as you carefully monitor what you eat. If you come from Europe though you’ll just notice how easy it is to order food at any time of the day, and sometimes of the night, plus often free refills on your drinks.
