Stay on track — wherever your travels take you
Maintain – Don’t Gain Campaign 2015
Published: November 20, 2015
The holidays and travel go together like mashed potatoes and gravy. Whether
you’re visiting your grandmother in Pittsburgh or sailing away on an island
cruise, travel can trip you up if you’re watching your weight. But there are
always ways to stay healthy and motivated — even when you are surrounded by
tempting, high-fat foods.
Here are some tips to help you stick with a healthy food and fitness plan
during your holiday travel. Remember: every bit counts!
- Snack smart. If you are driving to your
destination, be sure to pack healthy snacks with you, such as raw carrots and
celery, hard-boiled eggs, or almonds.
- Put healthy in the mix. If you’re helping out
with a big family dinner, bring a vegetable side dish or salad to the table.
- Know when to stop. Still hungry? Remember, it
takes 20 minutes for your stomach to signal your brain that you’re full. So if
you think you want second helpings, take a break for 20 minutes, then ask
yourself if you really want more.
