First of all I apologize for not posting for a bit. I’m also trying to build the inventory for my online store: msbusyhands.com.
I’m taking a few days off and the first thing that came to my mind was how to continue the diet while being away from home. So many people have asked me “what are you going to do?, where will you find Ezekiel, or Spelt bread on the road?” I totally did not want to completely throw my way of eating out the window, not even for a few days, I also did not want to stress about having to eat some of the “avoid” foods. My solution to enjoying my vacation and not killing my diet at the same time:
1). Eat smaller portions, share entrees and desserts
2). Only eat the “avoid” foods if it makes sense to me, for example a burger that comes on a bun, the bun will probably be white or wheat, (ugh). Some might say well just lose the bun, that might be okay for some, but for me it’s no longer a burger 😦
On the other hand it doesn’t make sense to eat 3 danish pastries just because I’m on vacation and just because I can.
3). Eat more fiber
4). Drink more water, less dehydrating fluids like coffee and alcohol
5). Take advantage of every opportunity to move. Walk the local mall or tourist attractions, or workout in the exercise facility offered by many hotels
I really hope these measures will serve me well. So far I’ve lost a total of 13 pounds since August 2014 and honestly my family and I are still working on the exercise part of this diet:-) If you have any tips on how to eat right while on vacation, please share. Stay tuned, and try to make healthy choices!
