How do you handle a holiday?
The goal for my clients while they are away-limit the damage, ENJOY themselves and aim to come home the same weight, OR, worst comes to worst, a slight gain which we can take on the chin , rectify, and be back on track with fat loss when they come home.
So how do you limit the damage? I have added some of my top tips below
Keep up some form of exercise- ideally the gym but walking is also excellent. There are also a lot of HIIT- style workouts available online; 15 minutes and you are DONE
Snacks- bring protein or fat based snacks such as protein bars and nuts- it is normal to end up having a big breakfast and then nothing until dinner- you are setting yourself up for failure here as you’ll be tired and hungry by the evening- this not only will reduce your will power . but will increase your cravings for those ‘less optimal’ food and drinks
Each meal should contain a good portion of protein and plenty of veggies..
..The protein and veggies should be eaten first , this should fill you up so that you don’t overdo it on the pasta and bread , which can be very easy to over consume
Alcohol- really limit the cocktails- a Long Island Iced Tea can have up to 780 kcals, with a Margarita coming in at 740- this is more calories than a Big Mac! Better options include prosecco/cava and light coloured spirits with diet mixers. Alcohol will also make you crave poor food choices so be aware of this.
