In class today we were discussing healthy lifestyles and eating habits. I asked various students if they ate a healthy diet. My favorite response came from a French student who's here on an exchange program. Here's a paraphrase of our conversation:
Me: Is your diet healthy?
Student: It was in Paris but not here.
Me: Why not? What changed?
Student: Now in Korea I must go to zee Burger King because Korean food does not fill me up. So now I must eat zee Whopper.
I was smiling and laughing along with him because I know exactly what he means! Rarely do I experience that full feeling (maybe I'm not supposed to at this age). Another student piped in and suggested drinking "a lot of water" to feel full.
I find that drinking coffee (lots of it) can work as an appetite suppressant. Readers, any other ideas?
