Worried about putting on some pounds while on vacation?
Here are some simple tips that will help you keep fit.
- Pack some healthy snacks. That way you can avoid the candy bars and sweets and fatty fast foods in airports, on the road, and so on.
- Plan to be active. Keep the metabolism pumped with a hike, a swim, a walk on the beach…chances are you’ll be active on vacation anyway, but make a mental note to get in some physical activity.
- Watch what you eat. Fried, crispy, creamy foods—not to mention rich desserts—are often the culprits in weight gain. Avoid as much as you can.
- Moderation. Even if you eat fattening things, try to keep the amount under control. Watch those portion sizes, as well as content.
- Have fun!
