There’s nothing more rejuvenating than taking a well-deserved vacation. But going on a holiday shouldn’t mean leaving your healthy lifestyle at home. In fact, taking a break from your healthy habits can seriously hijack the fitness goals you’ve worked so hard to achieve. Vacationing doesn’t have to equal weight gain. Believe it or not, by trying these five simple travel health tips, you might even find the scale tipping in your favour when you get home!
1. Choose restaurants that offer healthy options
One of my favourite things about vacationing is the opportunity to try new restaurants and new foods. By doing a little research beforehand you can delight your taste buds without sabotaging your diet. Check out restaurants’ menus online to ensure they offer healthy menu choices. If unsure, call the restaurant and explain your dietary preferences. When traveling abroad, be adventurous and try the local cuisine (like Charles and I did with these delicious Cricket Tacos). Part of the pleasure of eating is the experience of new textures and tastes. And even though they can seem like a bargain, it’s a good idea to avoid all-you-can-eat buffets when trying to eat clean.
