Eating On Vacation


By the time you are reading this, Sasja and I will be in the Philippines. Hopefully, my vacation plan has actually worked. I will be sure to let you know.

The truth is, when it comes to staying on track with health and fitness goals on vacation, you have to be super realistic with yourself. I know I love to eat! I can go in on some food! You really have no idea until you see it in person. Lol!

So to keep me on track I just keep the following two statements at top of mind.

1. Choose foods that make you feel good. For me it's a ton of water and fresh fruit. As long as I have those two things, I'm usually always feeling good and can find some balance with vacation food.

Which brings me to the next point...

2. Vacation food doesn't mean "I Forgot My Goals" Food. This is a big one. There is a difference between enjoying yourself and completely disrespecting your body and your goals. Eat. Enjoy the culture. Have fun. Just be smart. You know if you're eating too much. Check yourself!

As much as I can, I like to stay in Airbnb's, so I can have a kitchen. I usually make 1-2 meals, so I have some sort of control and leave 1-2 open for exploration.

That's it! There isn't some big secret diet plan. I'm not counting calories. I'm making sure I get my water and my micro nutrients in through fruit and veggies, making sure not to overeat and lastly, I'm listening to my body. 

Your body will tell you. Hangovers, stomach aches, fatigue, headaches all mean you're doing something wrong.

Keep these things in mind the next time you're on vacation!
