Do you break your diet while on vacation?

Smell people. Happy Friday. So another question for you all. Just a fun, light hearted question. On this fun Friday, when you go on vacation, do you break your diet? And when I say break your diet, I'm not talking about just those people that are following a diet plan to lose weight. But, you know, obviously diet is a lifestyle. So do you change your dietary habits?

So when people reference how I eat, and they'll say, oh, are you breaking your diet today or you're doing this? And I'll say to them, I'm not on a diet. Not on a diet. I just make healthy nutritional choices, similar to how people pull up to the gas station and they say, okay, I'm going to put 89 in my car, or 83 or 93. I select high octane feel, ooze for my body

Let me go ahead and eat like this, this, this, and for, you know, it. Like, you didn't, like, feel sick because you don't ate too much. So, yeah, I think we need to look at things a little different, you know, when it comes to things. But definitely, you know, definitely have your fun and indulge in different things that you would not have elsewhere, but just be mindful of how much you're eating

But, yes, I, um. I haven't had an affinity for sugar thus far, but nothing has, you know? But if I'm at a place and something just looks really good, I may. Thus far, I had coffee with no sugar, no dessert, thank God. But I'll see if something catches my fancy. Yeah, I definitely feel you. Because usually on vacation, I always lose weight as well. I come back lighter, and that could be

We even went by cheesecake factory, and I haven't had cheesecake factory in forever. And nothing was like, uh, grab a cheesecake. Nah, there's a place out here in Vegas. It's Lena's bananas, and she makes the really delicious banana pudding, like, some of the best that I've seen outside of, like, my mother's kitchen. And then she does, like, a frozen banana

I would look at restaurants in the area, and then I would look at menus first before going, so that when I get there, I already kind of have an idea, okay, I want this particular salad, but they're going to have to remove this, this, and this, or I want this entree here because it's as close to my plan as I can get. I would do that now

Your metabolism has probably been more even kill with the way you've been eating, and then you just ate some food that gave it a metabolism boost, and the metabolism kicked into high gear, so it took care of what you ate on vacation and then some. So I usually find that to be true. Like, I get back from vacation, I dropped a couple of pounds, too. So that's the benefit of giving yourself a little bit of a break

Like, on vacation, I'm cutting loose. I'm spending that money. I'm doing whatever the heck I want. And like I said, I'm celebrating, right? And foods, a universal way of celebrating. I'm cutting loose. Feeling good. So, yeah, it's really funny. It just depends where I'm at

And this is why I don't like to travel necessarily to the Airbnbs. Or people say, oh, we'll go to timeshare and we'll have a kitchen. And I'm like, for what? What? I want a kitchen for maybe to make a cup of coffee, because you can't find good coffee everywhere you travel. But that's about it. I don't want to be in vacation cooking. I cook at home. This is vacation

Im getting sloppy

Hello. When I go on vacation, I'm getting sloppy. I don't care. I'm eating and drinking any and everything because I actually eat clean often and I work out a lot, so I do. I'm that person that's always on the supplements. I do a meal replacement every day. I do a post workout shake. I do meal prep. I do all of that. So when I go on vacation, that is really a time for me to let loose

I kind of did a breakfast and then that. I can't even call it brunch, but that middle second breakfast, I think you call it on vacation breakfast. Second breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, dessert. Like, it's. Yeah, today is that kind of day. And Lord knows I do not eat like that at home. But it feels good sometimes

And so our Uber driver, when we were there in September, recommended it. And we didn't necessarily have a specific place for dinner in mind, so it was very timely. So we get on the website, we kind of. We look at the reviews, and we look at the pictures people are posting, and we're like, well, the food looks good, but the aesthetics of the background is like, meh

Hey, Jl. So, yes, my son does live in Vegas, but I am back home. So I came back home yesterday for middle of the night. So I'm home no longer in Vegas, but I will be going back. So thank you so much for the restaurant suggestion. I just checked out their menu too, and I'm like, oh, yeah, I see. I like what I see. You like the mushroom risotto? I love a good risotto
