For many of us holidays are mostly about relaxing & unwinding from every day life but for those trying to lose weight or to maintain a healthy lifestyle the lure of the all inclusive buffet and copious amounts of cocktails can sometimes throw us off course.
So how can you keep control whilst still enjoying yourself?
Well you can!
Living by the 80/20 rule means that you can still eat healthy, lose weight and enjoy your chosen treats!
One of the benefits of an all inclusive buffet is that you have access to a huge variety of healthy foods at every mealtime so eating healthily 80% of the time should be easy!
It doesn't make sense to deprive yourself of an enjoyable food so yes, have a dessert!
The key is carrying "moderation" in your back pocket. Sample these delectable foods, but don't feast on them.
Lack of activity can often be a factor in weight gain whilst on holiday so make the most of the extra time you have on your hands and include exercise in your daily routine.
The hotel gym, swimming or long walks on the beach can all be enjoyed that much more as you're not fitting it into your daily working life!
This is the lifestyle that we at OnPoint encourage all of our clients to adhere to.
It shouldn't be difficult, unenjoyable or hard to manage.
Enjoy your holidays!
