Healthy Eating: How to Maintain Your Diet on Holiday

Hey, fellow Gen Z’s! It’s your favourite online agony aunt, Sophie, here. I know you’ve been grinding those gears at the gym and sticking to that healthy eating plan (with occasional pizza binges because let’s face it, we’re human). Now, with holiday season knocking at the door, I bet you’re wondering how to maintain all that hard-earned progress while still enjoying your time off. Fear not! Your diet doesn’t have to go on holiday when you do. Here’s how you can keep up with your healthy eating habits without turning into a party pooper.

1. Plan Ahead

You wouldn’t head out on a road trip without a map (or in our case Google Maps), would you? The same goes for maintaining your diet on holiday. Research about local cuisines before setting off. Look for healthier options and make a list of must-try dishes that won’t sabotage your diet.

2. Pack Snacks

Yes, just like Dora the Explorer always has her trusty backpack, so should you! Pack some healthy snacks in your bag for when hunger strikes between meals or during long sightseeing trips. Think nuts, seeds, fruit or protein bars—snacks that are high in fibre and protein will keep you satiated longer.

3. Hydrate!

This one is as crucial as it is simple—drink water! Often times we mistake thirst for hunger leading us down the path of unnecessary snacking. Plus, staying hydrated helps regulate digestion and keeps skin glowing (a bonus for those holiday selfies).

4. Portion Control

I get it; holidays are synonymous with indulgence. That’s okay! Just remember, moderation is key. Try a bit of everything but in smaller portions. This way, you get to enjoy various flavours without going overboard on your calorie intake.

5. Stay Active

Holidays are not just about lazing around (though that’s a crucial part). Make sure to include some physical activities in your itinerary. It could be as simple as taking a walk to explore the local markets or trying out water sports at the beach—every bit counts!

6. Mindful Eating

Mindful eating is all about being present in the moment and savouring each bite. Not only does this make meals more enjoyable, it also helps you eat less and recognise when you’re full.

7. Treat Yourself

Last but not least, don’t forget to treat yourself! You’re on holiday after all. If there’s a decadent dessert or a local delicacy you’ve been eyeing, go for it! Just balance it out with healthier choices for your next meal.

To wrap up my Gen Z comrades, maintaining your diet on holiday doesn’t mean missing out on all the fun and food—far from it! It’s about making smarter choices and striking a balance between indulgence and health.

Remember my friends; life’s too short for self-deprivation! So go ahead, book that trip and pack those snacks because we’re going on an adventure while keeping our health goals in check!
