Want to stay healthy on holiday?
Follow our do’s & dont’s to avoid packing on the pounds whilst you’re in the sun!
Do: Get moving! Go sightseeing on foot, or hire a bike to get you burning a few calories whilst you’re there.
Don’t: Get dehydrated. Drinking lots of water is so important for your body anyway but especially in the heat. Drinking water can also stop you craving junk food and ensure you opt for something healthier.
Do: Go for freshly cooked foods. Opt for lean meats, lots of fruits and veggies and seafood if you’re by the sea. Ask for salad dressings on the side.
Don’t: Forget to pack snacks. Prepare to be out all day and take some healthy snacks you can eat on the go. Almonds, hard boiled eggs and raw fruit bars are all good options.
Do: Go for a dip! Swimming is a great way to burn some calories and get you a bit of well-needed vitamin D at the same time.
Don’t: Drink all your calories. There’s often unlimited drinks on all-inclusive holidays which can lead to a lot of calories consumed through alcohol. Wine and sugary drinks are the worst so aim to avoid these and don’t go overboard just because they’re free!
Do: Make the most of the outdoors. Try watersports, go horse riding, obstacle courses etc.. just get moving as much as possible.
Don’t: Use your alarm clock. Sleep is super important when it comes to weight-loss and you’re on holiday! So roll over and get an extra half an hour!
Do: Treat yourself! If you’ve worked had to get in shape then you must allow yourself a little treat. What is the point to it all if you can’t enjoy yourself every now and then? It’s all about balance.
Don’t: Skip the massage. Stress can also prevent you from losing weight and the build up to a holiday can be pretty stressful. So take full advantage and de-stress.
