Holiday without gaining weight

Holiday without gaining weight

 

Maybe you’ve been away on holiday and you’ve come home with more pounds than you left. Or you are going on holiday and you want to come home this summer with only the souvenirs you bought.

I’m already happy when clients return home stable in weight. Here you can read the four most important advices I give people on holiday.

Regularity comes in different forms
Eat a (main) meal every 3-4 hours. Let go of the time you eat.
So if you have breakfast one day at 08.00, then you have lunch around 12.00. If you have breakfast on another day at 10.00, then lunch is at 14.00, and so on. A great alternative is weight loss pills. As long as there is a maximum of 4 hours between a meal.
So are you hungry? Then first ask yourself when you last had a main meal and adjust your choice accordingly. So avoid the temptation to choose that triple ice cream from the ice cream stall, but go find a restaurant for a (small) meal that fills better.

This way you already limit a lot of (unintentional) snoring behaviour!

Portion sizes
Watch the portions you take. Choose where you can for the small options rather than the large options.
This will prevent you from eating too much. And you avoid a bloated and nauseous feeling because you have (again) lost sight of the amount. That’s another reason why a small portion rather than a large one is a smart choice.
And if you like it very much? Then tomorrow is another day!

Moving on holiday
If you want to come back weight-neutral, or if you want to be fitter and more active anyway, then it’s wise to stay active during your holiday as well.
In an all-inclusive resort in the bright sun, this is more difficult than in an environment that invites more people to walk, cycle, etc. But if you start every day with something active, you can still float in the pool, lie in the sun or enjoy yourself on a terrace for the whole afternoon.
The combination of action and relaxation gives you the optimal feeling of satisfaction.

Choose OR-OF, not ONE.
Strolling through a sunny village, over the boulevard or over one of the many brocante markets you will be tempted by the atmosphere to taste the local delicacies. So cozy and delicious!
Can you resist the temptation to give in to everything?
So try to consciously choose which delicacy you choose as an extra today. Tomorrow there will be another day for something else that you want to treat yourself to.
