What Type of Vacationer are You?

The Adventure Seeker

Plan activities based on your fitness level
Try activities you normally wouldn’t do at home. Pick excursions that match your fitness goals, like hiking through breathtaking landscapes or a guided tour of the best snorkeling spots.

Bring healthy snacks
Finding time for meals may be challenging with a busy itinerary. Consider packing nutritious snacks such as fruit or an RM Protein Shake to sustain your energy levels throughout the day and avoid unhealthy food choices between excursions.

Pack for exercise
If your vacation spot lacks convenient exercise facilities, pack some of your favorite workout equipment from home to maintain your routine. Jump ropes and resistance bands are compact, lightweight, and travel-friendly options that keep you active even while away.

The Cultural Explorer

Check the menu before you go
When vacationing, encountering unique or local cuisines can pose a dietary challenge. Before your trip, research restaurants and choose meals tailored to your diet. Select dishes featuring lean proteins and vegetables that are grilled, steamed, or baked instead of fried.

Share a meal
Immersing yourself in the local cuisine of the area you’re staying in is a great way to grasp the local way of life. To avoid the temptation to overeat, share a meal with your travel companion or ask for a to-go box and portion out your food before digging in.

Remember the 3-bite rule
If you eat something that’s off your diet plan, remember the 3-bite rule. Studies show the first taste of a food is the most pleasurable. The second bite is also good but doesn’t have the same effect as the first. By the third bite, you have experienced the flavor, and the excitement starts to decline.

The Family Vacationer

Choose kid-friendly activities
Traveling with your kids and family can be an enjoyable experience, but it also presents challenges. It’s important to plan activities that cater to everyone’s interests. Consider options like beach games, mini-golf, or local nature scavenger hunts to ensure something fun for everyone.

Focus on quality over quantity
Vacations are special memories-making events and should be fun and stress-free. Focus on the quality of your family time, and don’t stress about every bite. Remember that one meal or snack not on your diet plan doesn’t define your journey.

Lead by example
Show your kids what healthy eating habits and staying active look like. Emphasize the importance of self-care by having some balance on your vacation. A little time for yourself can keep everyone happy.

The Luxury Vacationer

Sip smart
Luxury vacations can often be indulgent, decadent and delicious. From fine wines, to top-shelf liquor, and cocktails, you might have more than enough choices to derail all your hard work. Instead, opt for flavored seltzer water with fresh fruit or make your own mocktail.

Choose healthy options whenever possible
It’s no secret indulgent meals will always be on the menu. Choose healthier options whenever possible, such as grilled proteins, salads, and fresh fruits to maintain an overall calorie balance while on your trip.

Engage in active relaxation
Upon reaching your destination, the temptation to spend all day lounging by the pool can be strong. However, it’s important to remain active. Consider engaging in activities like swimming laps or participating in a beach yoga class to stay active and energized.
