While working from home, it is a bit easy to control what you eat. but the problems kick in when you are traveling. The major issues dieters face while traveling is not able to choose the right food and choosing highly processed refined foods, which can lead to issues with bowel movement, that affect the overall experience of traveling.
Eating Out! Eating out cannot be avoided for a long time. It is not only our primary way of socializing, but it is also a necessity in today’s fast life. Many use their outdoor lifestyle as an excuse for getting healthier. Even when out, you can make wiser food choices.
In this article, I'll try to cover the tips, which I personally find easy to stick to, and have helped me reach my fitness goals, even when I’m traveling.
Choose solid foods
Solid food provides higher satiety than the liquids, and calorie intake from the latter fails to inhibit mechanisms that stimulate hunger. A pack of juice may be necessary for the scorching heat, but, on the rest of the days, going easy on sugary fluids and those cuttings-chais will help you trim the energy intake.
Avoid fat and sugar-loaded foods
We all know why avoiding sugary, and deep-fried foods can be beneficial – they are calorie-packed foods. Try and choose a more ‘nutrient-dense’ option, rather than ‘ calorie -dense’. When choices aren’t many – go with the better option at least.
Manipulate meals smartly
A salad on the side, three-four kababs, a sweet, and rice – compare this with lots of rice, no salad, a kabab, and several sweets. The critical difference between both is a few hundred of calories. Maybe festivals deserve less blame; actually, it was always you!
A teaspoon of sugar in the tea has 20 calories, but six cutting-teas like that is providing you with an additional 100 calories. Quantification can serve as a bridge between your taste buds and your calorie target.
We understand that having fun is necessary. Surely let go of yourself once in a blue moon, but otherwise, even during the feasts, you can manage your food better. Frankly, you do not even have to miss any particular favorite.
Our key message is- be smart, be healthy!
