It’s hard to stick to a diet, but it’s much harder when you’re away from home. However, if you stick to the diet travel tips I’m about to share with you, you definitely won’t come home with extra weight.
It’s not easy to stick to a routine when you’re on holiday or on a business trip. Especially if a diet routine is involved! While you’re likely to be strong for the first few days, there’s a big chance you’ll eventually give in to temptation. Therefore, when you’re on a trip, you need to plan ahead. Plan your meal ideas ahead so that your diet doesn’t completely go out of the window.
Once you know what foods are available in the city you’re travelling to, follow these travel tips for eating healthy while you’re travelling.
1. Carry snacks
Pack all the healthy snacks you enjoy into your travel bags.
2. Drink lots of water
Carry a refillable water bottle with you all the time. Otherwise, you’ll find yourself caught with an exorbitant bill at the end of your stay because of all the bottled water you will be ordering.
3. Carry your gym attire with you
It’s important to carry on with your exercise routine even when you’re on holiday. Continue with your short run or check for gym facilities you can use.
4. Visit local health stores
Try to avoid the hotel food and get some healthy foods for breakfast and lunch from some of the health stores you found.
5. Eat light dinners
You’ll probably be having most of your dinners at restaurants. However, try not to overindulge. Check the menu thoroughly before placing your order. And, always opt for grilled veggies whenever you can, and choose lean protein like chicken or turkey over red meat.
Holidays and business trips don’t have to ruin your diet. All you have to do is prepare yourself for the time ahead and plan what you’re going to eat. And, keep your weight loss goals and the time you’ve spent trying to achieve them in mind. It’ll help you avoid coming home without the extra weight.
