Holidays are a great way to take a break from your own bubble and enjoy some rest and relaxation.
As much as I love a holiday (as I’m sure you do too), it can come at a cost to your physique.
How do I know?
Because I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve gone away and stacked on the kilos only to punish myself
when returned home.
In this article, I’ll share with you 3 simple strategies to stay in shape whilst on holidays.
3 simple strategies to stay in shape on holidays
What Does Your Holiday Look Like?
Everyone’s version of a holiday is different.
What you find relaxing, I might find stressful and vice versa.
Here’s something we can all agree on though:
It’s a time where:
I find the last bit, heaven.
The first three however?
Can damage your progress.
Especially if you’re not careful whilst on holiday.
And when you have worked so hard to change eating and exercise habits, or are in the midst of creating new habits, a holiday can really throw you off track.
I’m not saying you need to be strict.
Or that you shouldn’t let your hair down.
If you lack some basic principles or ‘ground rules’, you’ll come home a few kilos heavier - but the good news is it can be avoided.
And those extra kilos will be VERY hard to lose, by the way.
So what do I do whilst on holiday to ensure I don’t return as a sluggish, bloated blob?
I follow these 3 VERY simple and VERY easy habits that are foolproof and can be followed by anyone;
3 Simple Strategies To Stay In Shape On Holidays
1. Eat Slowly
Why this works:
You’re giving your body time to digest the food and send the appropriate signals to the brain that tell you “I’m full”. You’ll be far less likely to overindulge and blow your calories if you take your time to eat. Plus, you’re on holidays, so slow down and ENJOY the surroundings…sounds stupidly simple, but try it.
2. Prioritise Protein
Why this works:
It forces the brain to stop and consider “where’s my protein coming from in this meal?”. This kinda ties into
the above habit - you’re fuller faster and longer, reducing your cravings for fatty snacks that don’t serve
Prioritising your protein will preserve your lean muscle, keeping your metabolism revved up so you
can literally lay by the pool burning extra calories. You’re welcome.
3. Keep Moving
Why this works:
You’re not pigeon-holing yourself into needing a gym. ‘Moving’ can come in the form of anything that gets
you doing exactly that - moving. If you can’t find a gym? Go walking. Go exploring. Find the local
You’ll be surprised how much money you save by skipping the public transport and go walking
everywhere. You’ll also be surprised at how many extra calories you burn in a day by simply walking
These 3 strategies may seem too easy.
And I can understand why you’d be skeptical.
But believe me they WORK.
And if I DO come home from this trip a little heavier than normal?
Meh, life goes on.
There’s no point dwelling on something I did to myself. It’s about limiting the damage so that it is easier to
shift when you are back home in routine.
And if you're feeling stuck and confused?
Because you've heard so many different opinions and tried so many different diets that you don't even
know where to begin?
