1. Limit Your Drinks

Vacations are all about eating, drinking and being merry, isn’t it? While that’s really tempting, it could really make you gain some weight. To avoid that, limit your drinks or better yet, substitute those sodas or juices and use water as a mixer instead.

2. Carry Healthy Snacks

If you think you’ll be tempted to snack on chips and samosas, bring your own snacks like Nachni chips or baked sweet potatoes, etc. Carry carrots and cucumbers to snack on too.

3. Drink A lot Of Water

Stay hydrated so that all the alcohol and other junk gets flushed out of your system.

4. Eat Smaller Portions

Eating small portions throughout the day will help keep the body’s metabolism high and will aid in burning calories faster.

5. Walk A Lot

Make sure that you’re physically active during your trip. You could walk, run, cycle or swim. This will help in burning all those extra calories you may have consumed during that time.

6. Do Your Research

Before you head for a holiday, make sure to check out the availability of restaurants and stores that offer healthy food. You can then prepare yourself before you get there.

7. Travel With The Right Crew

If you travel with people who love junk food and have unhealthy habits, you may succumb to it too. Go out with like-minded and relatively healthier peeps instead.

No need to stress about gaining a few kgs anymore. Gather your crew and make sure to travel smart from now on!
