Weekly Travel Tip – How Not to Gain Weight on Your Vacation

Many people gain weight when they travel and I can’t blame them because who wants to cook when on vacation? Here are some ideas on what you can do to avoid it:

  • Don’t wait until you are starving to go to a restaurant but if you already are you can always have a snack, like an apple or an oatmeal bar
  • Ask for healthier options but make sure to talk to the manager because he is the one that knows about everything that goes on in the restaurant, if you ask a waiter they will simply say no.
  • If you still want to have what’s in the menu you can always ask for a smaller portion. This will allow you to enjoy the food you like without gaining weight.
  • Another good thing to do is to personalize your order, for example you can ask for a salad instead of smashed potatoes. Most Restaurants will be willing to do it.
