    Going on vacation for a week: Diet?

    I am going away with the wife for a 1 week vacation and will be staying in a hotel. I am on my 13th week of cutting diet.

    I want to take a week off from weights as I haven't done that in a long time. I want to perform some cardio as the hotel does have treadmills.

    question is how do I go about planning a diet when the room I am in does not have a refrigerator, I can't cook meals while I am out.

    I will bring some canned tuna, protein powder.

    I don't need to necessarily keep the same diet going, I just want to avoid gaining the fat % I lost back in those 7 days.

    I would figure we would be going out to eat at least once a day.


    how do you stick to your diet (somewhat) while on vacation for a week?

    thanks

    IMO, it is nice to take a true vacation once in a while and not be such a nazi about diet. Dude, take the week and give yourself a break. You will be mentally and physically better because of it.

    i agree, eat whatever but in moderation,you can still eat fairly clean, don't lose your mind over it. I used to make myself cazy, but over time i have learned that one week will not break me. You'll feel great when u return and super motivated

    Alternate what you eat, if you go to a restaurant, order a chicken salad or chicken breats w/ greens and then the next night have whatever you want.

    This might help? Just a suggestion.

    every vacation ive taken i ended up coming back weighing less.
    i still stick to my diet when on vacation.
    i think its from all the walkin that i do while im on vacation where the weight loss occurs.

    when i go on vacation i usually eat clean during the day (order chicken salads and eat some protein bars) then at night i go out and enjoy...my feeling is that i dont wanna spend thousands of dollars to be anal retentive. I went to cancun last year and gained like 10lbs in a week....lost all but 3 in the first week of dieting (it was all water weight) and started dieting for contest. I say just go nutz have fun and enjoy yourself.

    If you've really been dieting for 13 weeks (that is a long ass time) then you need a break!

    been 13 weeks and thanks to the cutting sticky above dropped from 36" waist to 31.5 waist now

    I just never want to venture back nowhere near the 20% bodyfat category again and will do anything in my power to prevent it.

    still haven't reached my goal of 8-10% though


    thanks for all the help

    put it like this, do you really think that 1 single week of glutony would ruin 13 whole weeks of dieting??

    Listen to he other bro's. Just enjoy your holiday and eat and drink what you like. Obviously your not gonna be stuffing kebabs down your throat 8 times a day or anything like that but just think of it as a cheat week.

    Enjoy.
