Vacations are all fun and games until you realize your pleasure trip is taking a toll on your waistline! Some of us give our diets and exercise a break when we bon voyage, but if you're a regular jet-setter, you may want to take into consideration these primary culprits for weight gain when you're on a trip.
- The food. Whether you're on a cruise or staying at an all-inclusive resort, there is always an abundance of food right in front of your nose. Rather than starving yourself from all that food, eat three-square meals a day (with healthy snacks in between) and order foods that are either baked, broiled, or grilled while keeping an eye on portions. All of these suggestions will help reduce both fat and calorie content.
- The cocktails. Of course you want a colorful cocktail with a cute umbrella as soon as you check into your hotel. Unfortunately some of our favorite drinks are filled with calories, which is why the drinks can sometimes do more damage than the actual meal! Don't fret — you can have your food and your drinks too if you try incorporating some of these smart solutions for cutting down on cocktail calories.
