It is no longer a mystery, that drinking water is essential to both health and performance. So, try to always snatch a bottle of water wherever you’re staying. This is especially important if you’re in a more humid and hot environment.

It has always been said that breakfast is the staple of your diet since it’s your fuel for the rest of the day. So, try to start things off by having a copious breakfast, especially since most hotels include this in your lodging price.

Try taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Even though you’re on vacation, it doesn’t mean you have to slack off. Also, go for short walks in the evening – it’s good for digestion and it helps to burn up extra calories.

Stock Up On Protein
