I’ve gained 5 lbs. And that’s not something I’m just saying because I feel like I ate a lot this week or some kind of approximation of extra weight. I literally stepped on a scale and I am now 133.2 lbs, which is almost exactly 5 lbs more than I was before leaving for Japan last week (and I should add that I just woke up so that’s not counting any liquids I’m going to consume during the day).

Long story short, it was 100% worth it.


Japanese food is inherently very light and healthy but I think the sheer volume of each meal (I’ve never been to four buffets in one week before!) is what did it. But who could blame anyone for wanting to gluttonize when presented with such succulent morsels and fresh ingredients, all wrapped up in splendid little lacquer boxes and adorned with fresh cuttings from whatever garden was nearby? Anyway, I know you don’t care about any of this so I’ll cut to what you really want to see – the food, dammit! Enjoy!
