I thought of writing about this one as I, myself have come from a 10 days long holiday, and even I was worried about losing my progress.
It looks difficult but, it’s the game of our mindsets.
Let me tell you how?
First things first,
– JUST WALK A LOT.
Whether you are visiting a new city or a new country, don’t miss a single chance of taking a walk.
Walk small to medium distances. It will keep your activity level high, your fat/calorie burning on and will save you a lot money as well.
– Concentrate on your small mid meals.
As you are visiting a new place, it’s next to impossible that you will get home cooked food. You will have to eat outside in most cases.
So as you are aware of this situation, plan in advance for your in between meals – you can easily carry packets of almonds, dates, dry fruits, protein powder and etc in a flight or a train.
Some other options which you can buy from the place you are visiting to make it a mid meal and which will keep you full are –
local fruits of that place, milk, curd/yogurt.
Now I think I have given you plenty of options to choose from.
Plan your day with 6 to 7 meals accordingly, include these healthy options along with you eating out for 3 meals.
Tip: Don’t worry you can indulge in cheats meals as well. Just walk a lot, concentrate on healthy eating and work out at least once a week.
Chill, it’s a holiday. you can cheat! No need to feel guilty if you are following all these instructions.
– Remember to STAY HYDRATED.
Drink a lott of water, stay hydrated all day. This will keep you full, energized, your skin refreshed and will keep the bloat away!
Trust me water keeps a lot of problems at bay.
– Incorporate some kind of workout once or twice a week even if it is for 15 to 20 mins.
This is important, as you might lose your muscles while traveling as you are not working out properly and probably not on a good diet too.
This 15 to 20 mins workout will ensure that you are working those muscles up.
Some Workout options –
yoga/suryanamaskar, HIIT(high intensity interval training) workout, run/sprint.
Tip: I ‘ll tell you the easiest option, go on YouTube – type “10 or 15 or 20 mins no equipment workouts” or “home workouts”. You will get tons of workouts there, just pick the one you feel you can do and follow them.
– Remember to supplement
VITAMIN A – it is very important while you are traveling, it helps your body deal with the stress caused in the body when your diet or eating habits change.
Tip: other than traveling, you can take it when you are stressed.
VITAMIN B – take it in the morning after breakfast, it will keep you energized through out the day.
PROTEIN- try taking as much protein as you can through your food but if you can’t do that, you can take protein supplement.
It will help your muscles recover and prevent you from losing muscles as well.
