But, I've also lived in the first world (the west?). Having lived in the US and the UK, it is easy to see the deficiencies in our systems. Everything is just a bit more (if not a lot) difficult to come by. Of course it is easier to eat organic here, but everything else....no.
Now, in relation to healthy living, or weight loss to be specific, it is that much harder. Or may be I'm just making excuses. Let me give a couple of examples...
- My right foot has been having some weird pain, but I know going to see the doctor will not be of any help, so I just hobble along.
- Where is my HRM? What is that? lol.
- I need to buy some fresh vegetables - but they cost a LOT. A mere head of lettuce these days cost so much I just have to go without.
- Gym options - close to none, seriously. Only 1 24hr gym in this whole city.
- Therapy - lol.
- Personal trainer - lol.
