Balancing Act: Manage Your Weight on Vacation
Summary: Getting away on vacation can be a life-saver for some. But oftentimes this sense of freedom has a price: your waistline.It's true, it's easier to maintain your diet while you are at home and have a routine. Most people say that when they travel their diet starts off fairly decent and then it turns into a total disaster, where all sense of control flies out the window. And why shouldn't it? When you vacation you feel as though you should be able to "live it up." Plenty of reasons abound: you are with friends, you have lack of time (or desire) to exercise, and somehow just being away from the daily grind makes it OK to indulge in high calorie meals. Getting away on vacation can be a life-saver for some, especially if you're stressed to the max. But oftentimes this sense of freedom has a price: your waistline! Dr. Lisa Oldson, MD, shares a practical approach to vacation eating and strategies to stay healthy and still enjoy your yourself while traveling.
