6 Ways to Ditch the Vacation Fats


You’ve spent weeks hitting the gym and dieting just to look great in your new bikini, so the last thing you’d definitely want to bring home from your most awaited vacation is some extra pounds. So while gaining some weight during your vacation is inevitable, there are still some realistic ways on how you can combat this travel curse.


  1. Watch Your Caloric Intake. Buying and eating quick meals from airports is quite inevitable when travelling, and while these snacks and lunches look harmless, they actually contain about 1,000 calories. The same thing is true with your favourite frappe and sandwiches. Luckily, you can remedy this by downloading fitness apps like Calorie Count and My Fitness Pal to keep track of your caloric intake while being on the go.
  1. Carry a Water Bottle. Bringing your own reusable water bottle won’t only encourage you to drink more water instead of sugar and calorie-laden drinks, it’ll also make you more of an eco-friendly traveller since you’ll be able to help in lessening the carbon footprints cause by purchasing and leaving plastic water containers behind.
  1. Opt for DIY Meals. When travelling, it would be best to plan ahead by booking accommodations that has a kitchen and a mini-fridge. This way, you can easily prepare healthy meals for yourself instead of ordering fast food meals or dining out. However, don’t completely deprive yourself of the joy of eating out. Experts suggest that you prepare your own breakfast and lunch meal, and eat out for dinner occasionally.


  1. Share Portions. Most of the food portions in first world countries are usually double on size, but that doesn’t mean that your appetite should also double or triple up. A good way to avoid eating all the calories? Split your meals between you and your travel buddy to save you not just calories, but money as well. If you’re travelling alone, ask the restaurant to have half of your order packed in a takeout box and serve the other half as your meal.
  1. Exercise. Having a rest-and-relaxation state of mind doesn’t mean that you should completely go sloth. Whether you’re in a weekend getaway, a month-long tour, or in a cruise, you shouldn’t skip on performing your workout routines to maintain your fit bod. Check the Internet for some good and easy exercise cheats that you can fit into your itinerary.

With all sorts of temptations around, ditching the vacation fat can quite difficult to do, but by keeping the aforementioned tips in mind, you’ll surely be able to avoid gaining those extra pounds while looking good in your bikinis.
