When cruising, don’t come home too much excess baggage. We tell you how in today’s post.
- Avoid the all-inclusive mentality
One of the best features of a cruise tour are the never ending buffets, complimentary drinks, and free snacks. We have this mindset that because these food and drinks are free that we should take advantage of everything. Please don’t!
- Ditching your routine
One of the best ways to keep your weight in check is to keep a stable and a healthy routine. Because if you don’t, the weight will most likely creep on.
- Watch your portions
Cruise buffets are so enticing it’s hard to not go back for seconds (and thirds). A good tip is to choose a small plate, eat slowly, and watch your portions.
- Stick to water
Sugary drinks like soft drinks and juices are usually unlimited on the ship. If you can stick to water or diet soft drinks, that will help a lot to keep you from consuming more calories that you don’t actually need.
- Take it easy with the booze
With the energetic and social vibe, you’re likely to drink booze more than you usually do at home. So, watch your glasses and aim for an alcohol free day every week.
- Don’t forget to exercise
All cruise ships have a gym onboard fo sure. But more often than not, you’ll find it empty. Take advantage of this opportunity to do some cardio and strength exercises. Also hit the pool and do a few laps if you feel like the gym isn’t for you.
- Use the stairs
Modern cruise ships now have elevators. It’s one lazy way to go around the ship. Instead, take the stairs.
