I will be taking a trip in early February to meet my best friend, Vanessa, in Hong Kong. Before I go on vacation, I have to decide how I am going to handle my diet. I will be within 10 lbs of my goal weight. I have 3 options.
- Go off diet – It’s a vacation after all. I will most likely never go there again. I don’t think I will go completely off plan. If I can bypass birthday cake and my MIL’s holiday cooking, I can stay on plan.
- Modify my diet – I can switch over to a 4/2 plan instead of a 5/1 plan. This is where I would have 2 lean and green meals and 4 medifast meals. I actually like the idea of modifying my diet. I will bring Medifast bars and drink packets and continue to eat every 3 hours. This will allow me to try a few foods while I am on vacation. Plus think of all the room I will have in my suitcase once I eat all my Medifast meals!
- Maintain my plan – I would continue to do the 5/1 plan. I know that this is what Medifast recommends. I don’t think this will work for me. Many of the meals need water and a microwave. I don’t really want to eat cereal, pretzel sticks and bars for 10 days.
Do you stick to your diet, modify it or go off diet while on vacation? Inquiring minds want to know.
