7 Ways To Maintain Your Fitness Journey During The Holidays

Seven Ways to Maintain Your Workout Schedule When the Holidays Get Busy

With all of the interesting events, tasty meals, and new adventures, an upcoming trip is shaping up to be the best vacation ever! At that point, everyone can relax, turn off the lights, and take a break. You feel as though you could use a vacation from your regular regimen of food and exercise.

But there's a catch you don't want to put your hard-won health and physique at risk

Thus, the conundrum is how to achieve both goals simultaneously. How can you maintain your normal exercise schedule while on vacation?

To help you stay in great shape throughout your upcoming trip, we've compiled a list of seven tips you may put into practice.

Carbohydrates are best consumed in the evening after you've finished your workout

Fats, not carbohydrates, should make up the bulk of your afternoon meals. In other words, you should consume a LOT of them. Following the Carb Backloading approach allows you to stay in ketosis all day long. This is a good sign that the body is making good use of the fat that it takes in through diet and exercise and the fat that it stores for later use.

You should try to avoid eating gluten

Many of us, like myself, find that cutting off gluten has a dramatic effect on your health and well-being. If you want to lessen inflammation, mend digestive issues, or get rid of foods that don't provide much in the way of nutrition, eliminating gluten from your diet is a great place to start.

Eat a lot of fatty foods

Keep up your high intake of fat, especially healthy saturated fat. You should try to receive between 50 and 70 percent of your daily calories from fat to do this. Make saturated fat your primary energy source to prevent the buildup of ammonia and urea that might result from eating too much protein.

Be well-prepared to deal with any food-related crises that may arise

Listed below are some examples of convenient snacks:

Stand for healthy food when you're hungry, but you can't find any actual food. Dark chocolate, butter, or macadamia nuts would all be great additions to your quest bars, as they would up the fat content and flavour.

If you're watching your sugar intake, go for dark chocolate with a cocoa percentage of 85% or higher. The chocolate and nuts make for a satisfying snack. You may find the excellent brand in practically any retail establishment. Canned coconut cream, ideally from BPA-free cans. Blended drinks taste better with cream added.

Properly Prepare Through Training

If you must, set a low bar for your training before you leave on your trip. If you're going to be jet-setting around the world, you might want to plan at least one workout every city. Everything beyond that is a bonus. True, there are situations where it's preferable to "shoot low," and this is one of them!

As much walking as you can manage is recommended

You can reduce the amount of fat in your body by walking and eating a diet that varies between being low in carbohydrates and rich in fat. If you can, try to get around on foot. Walking is free, convenient, and a great way to get around and see the world without breaking the bank or putting undue pressure on your body.

Prioritize Rest

Lots of people have trouble dropping off at night, which leaves them exhausted all the time. In many cases, this issue only gets worse when you're on vacation and attempting to fit in all the things you normally would do.
