    It is not easy. Healthy food is very limited here compared to the USA. I have also yet to find a gym that is open one whole weekend. I think the locals think it is cool to be fat and die of diabetes-related complications.

    I think the food overall here is "healthy" once you compare it to the junk that at least I used to eat in the US. In california, hamburgers, tacos, burritos, and going out to eat was the norm in my life. Here, I eat at home and the food content is not that greasy in comparison to the US. So, it really depends on your prior alimenticious habits;if you are a "nature" freak then healthy food here will scarce. On the other hand, if you are a "junky food lover" like me, then Guadalajara is the best place to lose weight and lose some fat off your system. Good luck

    Healthy food is not a primary concern.

    A cousin of mine went to ROss and lost some where around 50 lbs after her was done. Before he started his education, he was a fat guy weighing over 210 and all of his clothes were sized xl or super xl. After he dropped the weight, he was thin and trim and all of his old clothes were too big for him. When I saw his dramatic weight lost, I ask him how he did it and did he went on some kind of salad binge during med school. His answer was that he lost so much weight because of all the moving around (caribbean students have to do three month observations from states to states) and the long 12 hour shifts he had to do for the hospitals.
    The moral of the story is most medical students are very likely to lose weight after they finish their education because all of the stress and the extreme long hours in the hospitals. I am sure that most people are not going to care about the the most people are not going to go for a low calorie salad after a 12-18 hour shift when they can eat a high caloric meal of burgers and fries. My personal opinion is medical school years is probably the only time in a person's life when he or she can all the fatty foods and still manage to lose weight.

    Not in Guad

    Most students will gain weight with all the good restaurants and taco stands opened all night.

    ...but you are still lucky to be alive after drinking the water in your coffee.. Seriously though, that is what I did. The cafeteria food has 0 interest in nutrition. I would come home when I was at ICB, too. The problem still is that much of what would be considered health food (whole wheat pasta, shreaded wheat cereal, etc) is only sold here periodically (defective or oversupply from USA?) Many vitamins and minerals are not sold here, even at GNC. If you are (or were) a health fanatic, this place can be hell trying to find all that you used to find so easily in the USA.

    Eating healthy means different things to different people.

    They have grocery stores here. That means the most picky vegan can eat to their hearts delight. They have stores that just house lentils and beans and grains. Have at it.

    You can call out to a sushi place and get nothing but steamed sticky rice and veggies delivered.

    IF you can do that than any range of healthy in between is possible.
