One question that is asked regularly, “How can I maintain my diet while I’m on vacation?”
While on vacation, the lovely, traditional cuisine of the destination country is so appealing that you just forget to maintain your diet and health routine. You might think you deserve a break from the constant efforts you made during the year. You return gaining a few kgs but you think it’s okay because you’re back to training with your fitness trainer in Dubai.
Fear not! There are plenty of ways to maintain your fitness regime during vacation.
Intermittent fasting is one way to speed up your metabolism. Fasting and eating makes your fats and carbs burn quicker. You can be lenient with your food choices because you are carrying out intermittent fasting. Being less strict with food choices makes it easier for you to dine in more restaurants.
Choose snacks, but choose wisely.
Traveling could be due to vacation or work. It’s wise to set a travel routine if you’re always on the go. Catching flights and traveling constantly leaves you with limited food choices, as a result, you often end up with junk foods and sugary drinks.
It’s best to carry protein snacks with you. In order to maintain your fit routine, it’s best to carry snacks and have no regrets at the end of the day. You are not just physically satisfied but also psychologically satisfied because you know that you haven’t had junk food.
Bodyweight workouts can be done almost anywhere. It’s wise to keep up bodyweight workout routine while you’re on the go. Doing workouts for 30-40 minutes in the room such as lunges, squats, push-ups, a bit of cardio would keep your heart beat pumping. As long as you are sweating, burning fats and carbs, you don’t need to hit the gym with such a busy schedule.
Take a run outside. Going for a run for at least 5 minutes a day helps you stay healthy and fit. It is definitely better than doing no fitness activity. Running is the most natural movement we do and most of us never do it! Apart from the obvious benefits such as improved cardiovascular health and fitness, going for a run can also help with stress relief and improving mood.
