An entire year of deprivation and diets and here comes summer vacation - the biggest test for our way of eating. The relatively monotonous way of life throughout the rest of the year makes following a diet significantly easier.
In order to continue eating right during summer vacation as well, there are a few rules we can follow. The good thing about them is that each person can decide for themselves how prepared they are to compromise.
- Most likely, your so-called list of forbidden foods contains your favorite temptations, which you have a hard time resisting, but which are also incredibly unhealthy.
What you can do to make things easier for you is to make a few changes to that list - allow 1-2 of these items to be on your menu.
Of course, this doesn't mean eating those things only, but if you happen to pass by a pastry shop, you can allow yourself a little treat;
- You might be thinking that if you cross that line once, you will have a hard time going back. But healthy and proper eating is exceptionally difficult to stick to during a vacation, especially if you've gone to a particular place for the first time ever.
Be honest with yourself - it will be difficult not to succumb. Therefore, don't look for excuses to try some fast food, instead find the right way of bypassing the rules;
This way you'll be able to fully immerse yourself in the cities you visit, and at the same time you'll be eating right and according to your diet;
- To make things even easier, it would be best if you researched the place you're going to ahead of time. Using the internet you can easily check what types of restaurants there are near your hotel and pick out the ones that offer food according to your taste;
- Eat more fruits and drink lots of water and don't reach for sodas and alcohol too often. Last but not least, your beautiful body figure won't change if you enjoy the attractions near your chosen vacation spot. Since summertime usually means going to the beach, you can try swimming, paddle boating, water skis and others.
