MYTH BUSTER: I cannot follow a diet plan as I travel a lot!
Travelling is one of the most exquisite forms of enjoyment and learning. But for frequent travelers, it often comes at the cost of disrupted schedules and no gym or frequent exercises.
However, if you stay true to your idea of health over all other aspects of life, let me break the false myth of neglecting diet plans while traveling! Also see what things you need to remember to make your diet plan
Yes, you heard it right.
The difference lies in the approach, some know how to take care of their body because it is the temple of existence gifted to us and every gift should be preserved as long it can be, and in most circumstances. It is really difficult to say no to a particular cuisine or some variety of food special to someplace you are traveling by. How can you then stay fit and enjoy your destinations as much as possible? Let us discuss this aspect.
Learn to say No, first of all.
Good food is an urge few can effectively resist. While with every morsel of unhealthy yet tasty food, you may swear it is your last but unfortunately, you end up eating more than your body needed. Keep your gut and taste buds in coherence with your physical appetite. Trying different cuisines is the essence of traveling but controlling the urge to overeat street food and alcohols can prove tough. However, it is not that tough when your mind is clear about what you want your body to be like after the vacation is over.
However, resistance is an effective weapon up to a limit. Not only does avoiding certain foods but trying to follow a particular routine as much as possible is another necessary point to keep in mind while traveling. How to manage your diet if you work late night?
Lights snacks, lots of hydrating foods, protein bars and light juices can keep you from binge eating due to long hours of getting no food. These are the must backpack essentials you should always include in your respective checklists. Imagine you are a celebrity and every travel tour is just part of your life, your body is the one you shall always take home.
Nobody can argue with me on the dispensability of water and hydrating food items. Never restrain your body of the necessary hydrating elements and protein because the body can manage hunger up to some exaggerated levels but not dehydration and low strengths during travels. However, staying hungry for hours together is not a fair idea either. What are your healthy containers of snacks for?
While traveling, also remembers to choose healthier plans for sightseeing as much as you can. Walk through the city instead of hiring cabs or make some exercise routine for a prescribed time limit and hit it anytime you feel you can, just try not to miss it.
If you want to decrease appetite, drink water and with it, some lemon drops or tea pinches to add some taste and remember not to overindulge in the party moments so much that you consume alcohols and sweet drinks in great amounts. They do not decrease appetite and lead to falling insulin resistance while taking up very little space allowing much more to be put in your stomach. You do not want your stomach to panic with overload, do you?
While being offered cuisines, select the healthier ones definitely like soups, light meals, and less oily and heavy foods. Go to places, which you know offer lighter varieties of food items.
Walk as much as possible. Use the elevators instead of stairs. Drink water. Repeat. The effective exercise for weight management.
While going into parties, share your meal servings with everyone. Restaurants end up serving more and heavier food than you actually require, so make sure you distribute and not have all of it by yourself. You may even ask locals about the best and healthiest restaurants. Always come prepared and informed and everything will be fine.
In addition, while planning to explore street foods and cuisines take a partner along with you because that gives you a chance to share your large portions of food and take in the right amounts.
If you focus your time and brain on sightseeing and the work you are coming for, there is less chance that your taste buds and stomach will crave for new varieties of junk food, possibly more than your tummy even needs!
In conclusion, remember that traveling is not a bane for fit people, as a matter of fact, you can easily keep yourself fit as well as travel the world, all of it together.
