A souvenir that we don't want to take home from our next holiday, are those two extra pounds that we regret every time we return. Here's what to do to prevent it from happening
On vacation everything is allowed. Small hours, fish dinners by the sea, dolce far niente and a toast in profusion. But in all this relaxation creeps of small bad habits that make us cry on the scales on our return. Taken from theenthusiasm, free time and curiosity for dishes far from our routine housewife, we tend to overdo it. And since prevention is better than cure, here are 5 small things to consider to avoid turning holidays into the cause of your next diet.
1 – Sugar free
The first thing to consider is liquids. Very important during the summer season to give the body the amount of water necessary to rebalance the water lost through sweating, they turn too often during the holidays into a continuous transgression. Carbonated and sugary drinks, fruit juices and alcoholic drinks I'm a real one sugar mine ready to turn into extra pounds. The bad news also is that they don't have good moisturizing power. Then focus onwater, drinking about two liters a day. All the rest of the drinks you take will not have to quench your thirst, but accompany the highlights of your day. Yes to a natural pineapple juice for breakfast, a glass of wine or beer as an aperitif and an after dinner drink. But without exaggerating!
2 – Ice creams? counted
One of the most popular foods in the summer is ice cream. Refreshing, tasty and available in every corner of the beach is a sweet temptation to which we say yes too often. The habit of eating it every day on vacation is to be lost: try ad take it on alternate days. On bad days, you can count on a good slice of watermelon or on an ice lolly.
3 – Mon amour grid
Pasta with seafood, mixed fry and chips. If you also ordered these things in your favorite restaurant by the sea last night, it's time to give us a cut. A menu rich in carbohydrates and fats it may be a tear, but never the rule. One of the easiest moves to avoid nasty surprises on the scale once you are back from vacation is to count on cooking that does not require the addition of fat. Just like the grill.
Here are some ideas for preparing fish:
4 – Let's get organized
One of our favorite things about holidays is the lightheartedness they give us. For a few days we don't think about anything, not even what to eat. So go ahead for breakfast at the bar and lunch with focaccia, panzerotti and pizzas. But a little organization could be our lifeline. Let's start at regularize our breakfasts preferring energy and fiber to the caloric combination hood and brioche yogurt and cereals. For lunch, then, let's organize ourselves with simple preparations like ham and melon, mozzarella and tomato and salads rich in vegetables and fruit.
5 – The happy hour
The aperitif is a ritual that in the summer has the character of the indispensable. But just like in the case of ice cream, doing it every day could be harmful for our line. Let's start at change our habits by dedicating a few moments before dinner to different activities. Like a photo shoot to take advantage of the hottest hours of the day, a long walk on the seafront or simply reading the book that we are passionate about.
