I recently moved back from Japan to America- about 18 days ago. In that time, I seem to have gained nine pounds! I'm sure some of it is water weight, but I don't know how to get my body to regulate itself. I'm constantly hungry, but I don't think I'm eating too much. My body just wants to store everything it gets, it seems like... Has anyone else experienced this when moving internationally?
In one day, I eat maybe a chicken breast and some greens for breakfast, some kind of protein and greens and maybe 1/4 sweet potato for lunch, protein for snack if I need it, and the same thing as lunch for dinner.
I'm definitely moving a lot less than I used to, but I work standing all day and bike ride leisurely around 40 minutes a day.
I wonder if anyone has had this experience before, and has some advice about how to get your body to regulate?
Thank you so much!

Read "The Jungle Effect" by Daphne Miller. She explains it very well. Japan is way better for you in terms of losing weight - more emphasis on healthy foods, traditional cooking.
I would lower your carb load a bit in order for your body to adjust.
