Travel is often associated with a time window when we feel entitled to go off plan and eat whatever we want, as though there’s no other choice. However, those who want to continue to make progress in spite of jumping on airplanes (or jumping OFF of airplanes, if that’s your thing), here are a few simple tricks and tips which can help you enjoy your time away without ruining your efforts towards your health goals.
1. Drink Lots Of Water
One of the easiest habits you can stick to is to stay hydrated. Grab the number of bottles you will need to fulfill your daily quota of water intake, and ensure you finish that by the end of each day. Not only will this provide you with the energy boost to go on your adventures, but it’ll also keep hunger at bay so you don’t end up snacking too much.
2. Clock In Your Steps
Going to a new location often means you have the opportunity to walk a lot as you check out the local tourist spots. One of the best ways to get to know a new environment is to get outside, pick a path, and simply start walking. If you can do so with a backpack on, even better!
3. Choose Wisely at the Breakfast Buffet
Breakfast buffets are often associated with all the high carb foods right from cereals to doughnuts. However, if you look around, there are plenty of high-protein and high-fiber options that you can fill up on early in the day. Fresh fruits, veggies, salads, sausages, are all good options. Take advantage of that live egg counter!
4. Shop For Portable, Healthy Snacks.
After a big breakfast, it would be a good idea to have some snacks on hand that will keep you going the rest of the day. Make a small effort to look for a nearby supermarket and stock up on fruits, veggies, yogurt, and other such items. Keep them in your hotel room and backpack so you can have a light day of eating before you have a nice dinner. Speaking of which…
5. Enjoy Local Foods At Dinner
You are on holiday after all, so use dinner time as your window to try out the local delicacies and indulgent options. Having had only a big breakfast and light snacks throughout the day, you can still remain in a caloric deficit while you enjoy a new city.
