Traveling is when dieting gets difficult and all the rationalizations start. “Couldn’t do my own cooking, so what could I do but eat?” Last month I spent 12 days in Italy as part of a tour. When I returned, I weighed 1/2 a pound less than I did before. How?
Departure day was on a Thursday, so I ate a high-protein typical Fast Day Breakfast and Fasted the rest of the day. On the air plane I ate what was served and went to sleep. The following days I ate and drank as I wished. Next Fast Day was a Monday, and the breakfast buffet offered just what I needed: eggs, fruit, meat or cheese.
Dinner was at a restaurant, so no chance to Fast, although I was careful not to go wild. Same on the following Fast Days which fell during the trip. Calorie restriction on some days, eat-as-you-wish on the other days. It works. You can do it.
Every Fast Day I chose carefully from the breakfast buffet in Venice, Florence, and Rome. Did I starve myself every day? No. Did I eat gelato every day? Yes. Did I walk 6-9 miles every day while sight-seeing? Yes. Did I find that one can fit the Fasting Lifestyle into traveling? Coming back with no weight gain says ‘Yes you can!’
