If before you left on vacation you were carefully keeping to your diet and taking care of what you eat, do not stop thinking about these things! The worst thing you can do during your vacation is to think “it’s vacation, I can afford – X.” Yes, you can, but why? Are you sure, that is it worth it? It will definitely take you a few steps back in achieving your goal!
Fortunately, BeLiteWeight is here to be like a lifeguard from Baywatch cautioning you to keep to your diet during this summer. So then you can still properly enjoy your awaited holiday without regret.
First of all, summer is the best time to lose weight. We eat less at high temperatures. We feel more like lighter foods. We forget about thick sauces and instead prefer fish, fresh fruits, and vegetables, that taste best in summer and are also at their cheapest.
However, on the other hand, summer is also a time of vacations and outdoor events with friends and family. During these times we allow ourselves more freedom and are more easily tempted. After all, it’s time to relax, not stress yourself with a diet. Is there a way to not gain weight during vacation, and at the same time try new flavors? Is there a way to enjoy the food at parties and not miss the effects of the diet? Yes there is! Remember, you can always choose healthy options and still enjoy your vacation! Follow a few simple rules and you won’t miss out on anything.
Before leaving, it is worth getting a few products that will not spoil, be easy to pack, and a better alternative to products that can be easily found. One of our top recommendations are simply nuts and beef jerky. But find your favorite health conscious food-bar and keep them around. The day before departure, it is also worth it to prepare the meals that you will eat the next day. If the plan is to go somewhere for longer than a few days it is important to plan your diet more carefully.
Moderation is the key!
You don’t have to give up all delicacies to be healthy. It is enough to be moderate. Summer is often spent near the water at tourist destinations like beaches, lakes, and rivers. Remember to order healthy fresh fish but maybe skip the fries and chips and eat some vegetables on the side.
Sweet moments …
A small scoop of ice cream or fruit sorbet during an active day will not hurt you much either. As long as it is not excessive and you minimize the toppings it might help keep you sane! But remember to do your best to choose more valuable alternatives – like a fruit salad with yogurt. Of course, one holiday dessert will not ruin your slimming treatment, but try to give up processed foods and choose desserts with natural ingredients.
Water and Salt
During the hot weather, moisture and minerals escape our bodies in the form of sweat extremely quickly. This is why a tangy pickle can sound so tempting in the summer. It is very important to replenish these levels quickly. Drink water and eat salty foods!
What about alcohol?
Alcohol is not friendly for any diet, so it would be best to not drink at all. However, it is understandable that this part can be especially difficult during summertime with special time spent with friends and family. Alcohol itself is caloric and, unfortunately, it stimulates the appetite and makes you hungrier too.
A good strategy is to give up the high calorie drinks altogether. Beer and juice cocktail drinks are especially bad for diets and better alternatives include red wine, and clear drinks like vodka tonics.
Nothing is less friendly for our health than inactivity. Fortunately, trips do not limit us when it comes to physical activity. For each special food you enjoy you can take an additional walk and enjoy the scenery.
Don’t get crazy but remember your goals!
It’s a vacation after all, not a survival camp, so you can afford a few sins. But remember the principles of healthy eating, allowing yourself to deviate from the diet from time to time, but overall still remembering your goals.
Only a few days into your vacation the weight you fought so hard to lose beforehand can quickly return. A few pleasures are certainly not worth it! So just remember: self-control and moderation.
