Thats all a vacation is. Just us eating in a place weve never been.– Comedian Jim Gaffigan

Its true: Sometimes it seems like all we do on vacation is eat. One meal is done, and were already chatting about where were going to go for dinner.

Why dont we eat somethingthen go and see that thing were supposed to seethey probably got a snack bar there, right? And after that, we should probably go and get something to eat, though.

And alas, you come home and your hard work goes down the drain

While we dont encourage you to be the socially awkward guy in the corner who eats so cleanly he cant go to a restaurant and order a meal with a group, we also dont want to see your three-week summer vacation turn into the biggest binge of your life. You deserve a vacation and deserve to enjoy delicious foods and drinks while youre there, but there are ways to mitigate the damage.

Here are some tips:

7. Kitchen, kitchen, kitchen

Find accommodations with a kitchen, so at the very least you can make a healthy breakfast at home. Its also great to be able to keep other healthy snacks and lunch food in the fridge. This means at least 70 percent of your regular diet can stay intact while youre away.

6. Drink your carbs

If youre drinking more than normal on vacation, ensure to include those calories into your daily consumption. Theres usually lots of sugar in drinks, so cut back on other carbs to make room for the wine and cocktails.

5. Keep your routine

Often what happens on vacation is your schedule gets thrown. If youre usually a five small meal a day person, suddenly you find yourself stuffing your face three times a day, shocking your system in the process. Bring food with you wherever you go during the day if youre a regular grazer to avoid finding yourself hungrier than normal come official meal time.

4. One meal out per day

In line with having a kitchen, try to limit your meals out to once a day. Even if you go to the healthiest restaurant, people tend to eat more when theyre out.

3. NorCal Margarita

Patented by nutrition expert, author Robb Wolf, the NorCal Margarita is a healthierdrink option to help you avoid pumping your body full of sugary drinks. The recipe:

  • 2 shots tequila
  • Juice from one lime
  • Splash of club soda
  • Ice
  • Salt glass rim

2. Keep Working out!

Take some well-deserved rest days, but try to hit a workout here and there. First thing in the morning seems to be best before you find yourself day drinking at the beach. Working out usually helps us make better meal choices, too.

1. Avoid Buffets

Enough said.

Have fun, indulge, but come home healthy.
