Going on holiday usually leads to gaining a few extra pounds. Being aware of this fact will help you to be on your guard, and avoid fat creep during the vacation season.
I expect you go on holiday to enjoy yourself. For many of us, summer vacation is something to look forward to the whole year. But it's all too easy to come back from holiday weighing more than you expected.
Why are you at risk of gaining weight during the holiday season?
There are many reasons for possibly gaining weight, but they fall into two broad categories: doing less, and eating more.
The usual story of an imbalance between calories going in and energy expenditure: put all this together and no wonder your weight inevitably balloons!
How much weight do you think you will put on during your next vacation?
The answer to that question depends on where in the world you will visit and what you are planning to do.
Visiting America is well known for piling on extra pounds for a variety of reasons: the large food portions being one.
Beach holidaymakers have options to be more active: beach volleyball, swimming, watersports, etc. But the opposite also holds true: sunbathing, building sandcastles and reading on the beach are also popular beach time activities which are not that calorie burning.
How can I avoid fat creep during my vacation?
Being aware of the problem is a great start because you can be on the lookout for pitfalls and be ready to act positively to prevent problems before they arise.
Weigh yourself pre-holiday and also when you return. If you follow these tips and other healthy living advice, you should find that your perfect bikini beach body is not bursting out of your work clothes when you get back to reality!
