Here are some strategies you need to know so you can have a comfortable vacation without being haunted by the burden of gaining excessive weight.

According to research, consuming 500 ml of water or about two glasses 30 minutes before eating can help you losing weight. Get used to drinking water before meals every day, can help you lose weight up to about 2 – 4 kg in 12 weeks.
Researchers conducted another study. They found that overweight (obese) adults who drank water before eating could lose more weight than those who did not drink water before eating. Also, drinking water before eating can trick your stomach into feeling full and reduce your appetite. Consequently, it prevents you from overeating and gaining more weight.

Treating fruit as a snack is one of the keys to your diet’s success, whether you are at home or while on vacation. Fruit contains fiber, which can make you feel fuller. Also, fruit commonly carries antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that are beneficial for health. Try local fruits that are unique to the place you visit. Apart from reaping the benefits, trying local fruits and how the local serves it also offers a new, unforgettable experience.
3.Browse the available buffet dining menu options
If you visit a place that provides buffet meals, do some observation before you start picking up food. Go around and explore all the food options served. A study from Cornell University found that the leanest eaters on the buffet browse all the options first. This strategy helps figure out what you want to try before it all ends up on your plate.
When you are on vacation, you should choose to walk rather than ride a vehicle. Besides burn calories, you can also enjoy the streets and more tourist attractions. Walking in a vacation spot will be more fun because you can enjoy the beauty of the city and the hospitality of the local people.
