Maintaining Your Weight Loss Momentum Away On Vacation

Going away for your holidays will also bring with it a good supply of temptation on the food front, unless you are on a survival course, climbing a mountain or camping in the wilderness on limited rations. The chances are you will be at a hotel, and if you have chosen a good hotel, it is likely there will be good food, often as much as you want.

So, how do you deal with your weight loss aims when you are on holiday away from home? Here are just a few ideas:

Sample The Fresh Local Food

If you are having your vacation in a warmer clime by the sea, then there is a good chance there will be a good supply of fresh fish and delicious fruits, even some vegetables you've not tried before. Try to concentrate on those. After all, what is the point of travelling somewhere else if you end up sticking to the same old foods. You may well find some low calorie delights that will add to a memorable holiday.

Avoid The Full Buffet Table

Many hotels offer buffet breakfasts, and also buffet lunches and evening meals. If you decide to eat at the hotel, arrive late. If you are the first there and see a sumptuous spread across the tables, your desires may be stimulated, your appetite inflamed. Plus, you will have more time to eat. Arrive later on, and the almost empty display will not look so appealing; also, what is left is likely to be the lower calorie foods.

Explore The Locality

If you are visiting a foreign land, or somewhere new in your own country, take at least a daily stroll around the local streets. Or if you want to visit further afield, see if you can hire a bike. That adds a healthy but interesting dimension to your experience, and assists in maintaining your weight loss programme.

Keep Active On The Beach

There is much you can do at the beach that will help you with your weight loss ideals. Get involved in beach volleyball or any other activity that might be going on, or which you and your companions or family could start. Not only does it help shed weight, it also keeps your mind off food. And there in front of you is an enormous swimming pool, the sea. Swim as often as you can within your safety limits, and you will go home a healthier you. Even if you do not swim, get in the sea and exercise your limbs in the water. I cannot swim, and that's just what I do; the water resistance is an excellent aid to exercise.

Use The Hotel Facilities

It depends on the hotel, of course, but many have good facilities that will help you both enjoy your holiday and lose weight, or at least not put on weight. You're paying for the hotel and the facilities, so make the most of them if they are included, or treat yourself if they are not. If you prefer to swim in freshwater, use the swimming pool as part of an exercise routine during your stay. If there's a gym, make it a daily part of your itinerary; if there's a sauna, indulge.

Relax

If you are relaxed, your self control and confidence are likely to be higher. So, relax. If you want to indulge yourself, have a massage instead of foaming at the mouth over chocolate gateau.

Of course, the holidays should be about enjoyment. So whether you are at home or in some distant location, enjoy yourself. You never know, you may come home a pound or two lighter, still telling everyone about your wonderful holiday.
