You’re ready to travel with your friends and family to your favorite all-inclusive resort…and you know it involves good food, drinks, fun and sun on the beach.  Being mindful of the extra meals and snacks and the abundance of food on the buffet could help you to prevent weight gain and perhaps these 3 tips will help you on your next getaway.

 

1.  Exercise
Relaxing at the pool is important, however, a long walk on the beach and some water sports will give you physical activity for the day.  You can also take some time for the gym, however, many all-inclusive resorts offer an abundance of daily activities and excursions.  Consider choosing one that will get your body moving.

2. Eat Good Food
There will certainly be an array of fried foods, sauces and decadent items, however, choosing wisely will keep you feeling good in the heat of the day and return home without extra pounds.   Look for lean meats, fresh vegetables, fruits and salads. Dessert is okay – pick your favorite.

3. Drink Responsibly
Alcoholic beverages can put on weight and especially if they’re fruity drinks and have added sugar i.e. simple syrups.

– Take a break from drinking
– Drink plenty of water
– Drink with a meal like your dinner vs starting earlier and drinking all day
– If there’s something you love consider having it every 2nd or 3rd day vs every dayThis is your vacation and you deserve to have an amazing adventure and you can still stay on track while away if you choose. 

Bon Voyage!
