For seasoned business travellers, losing weight is not necessarily at the forefront of your itinerary for the trip, however with this oversight you could be missing a trick.
Shedding a few pounds while on the move visiting other countries and cultures is a lot easier than you might think, and here are five reasons why:
1. New And Exciting Foods
You may not be aware, but it is a scientifically proven fact that the brain registers satisfaction quicker when encountering new flavours and tastes than it does with ones that it is already familiar with. This is why travel is so good for losing weight, as we are much more likely to eat different kinds of foods that we aren’t used to eating whilst we’re on the move. Who would’ve thought exciting and fun new foods could help you lose weight!
2. Less Snacking
While you’re either at work or back at home, there is a constant temptation to snack without realising. However, when travelling your mind will be occupied experiencing new places with lots to do and see. Also, with limited space it is more effort to stock up on snacks to carry around while you travel from place to place.
3. Drinking More Water
During your travels you are much more likely to drink water instead of high-calorie soft drinks. Make sure you bring a refillable water bottle with a charcoal filter and refill it as often as possible. As you know, it has been scientifically proven that drinking more water can cut all kinds of health issues.
4. Always On The Move
When exploring new cities and areas you are much more likely to do so by foot, so when visiting a new place you will do a large amount of exercising without even realising. This is great for burning those extra calories that you wouldn’t back in the office!
5. Eating Fresh Food
On your travels there is a much greater chance you’ll be eating fresh food instead of the processed foods are you more likely to eat back at home, plus it’s also much more fun, and more of an experience, to make your own picnic and also at much less of a cost than eating at a restaurant.
So even if you haven’t made any New Year’s resolutions to lose weight or get in shape, simply being smart during your business trip you can lose a few extra pounds on the move!
