HOW TO DIET ON VACATION: YOUR MEAL PLAN

August 4, 2019 19 By William Morgan


for whatever reason people come to me
they say hey listen I’m going on
vacation going on this wicked nice
cruise cuz I got a lot of money at
don’t worry about it make six figures for
vacation and listen I don’t want to get
fat I don’t want to lose all my strength
I don’t want to lose on my progress cuz
he’s the deal like listen it’s no big
deal I I count my calories like pretty
strictly except for at night after
dinner and then during the weekends and
then I really don’t track them at all
but occasionally one day out of every
month I’ll track it pretty loosely oh I
go to the gym all the time like at least
two times a month so basically a month
at what should i do what should I I
don’t want to lose it all can you give
me some insight and let me tell you
something I mean I’ll tell you what I
tell these people I say listen if you
are willing to sacrifice all your gains
if I go on a vacation fine that’s on you
but basically no no one has ever built a
great body no one has ever been happy
with how they look and gone on vacation
mind you’re out of your mind you go on
vacation and have a great body but
listen I’ll tell you what you want to go
on vacation fine just make sure you
bring your tape measure bring your scale
with all your food where you go to the
where the buffet way every bring it back
there with you and put your measurements
around bring your gym bring your shake weight
your Zumba instructor bring
everything with you because you can’t go
on vacation without all this stuff basically you gotta make your vacation not a
vacation okay I don’t know a funny voice
aside let’s actually talk about what to
do when you go on vacation with your
nutrition with your strength training
because this is a very common question
and a lot of people are very nervous
they actually don’t want to gain extra
body fat they don’t want to lose all
their progress they don’t want to ruin
everything that they’ve worked so hard
for and really it’s a very simple fix
and the reality is this but the way that
I phrase this goes think about one week
of perfect dieting one week of perfect
exercise you do everything right
not one calorie out of place not one
workout miss maybe even hit an extra
workout did you completely change your
body in that week did you lose tons of
body fat did you gain tons of muscles
was your life like actually changed in
any meaningful way from that week yes
there’s no of course not and you know
that logically right now what’s going on
is
vacations coming up you’re getting
nervous because you see that possibility
of not being able to stay on track and
just thinking about it you get emotional
it’s normal it’s a human normal human
reaction you get emotional you get
worried
when you don’t say something out loud
it’s an emotional thought it’s easy to
take over what I want you to do is you
stay out loud logically okay I’m going
away for a week does that mean I’m gonna
ruin all my progress no it’s not because
when you say it out loud it sounds
fucking stupid and you know it relax
you’re going on vacation let vacation be
vacation if you want to work out by all
means do it I work out on vacation
because I feel better for it I like it
but no way in hell am I going to worry
or be concerned or get pissed at my
family or my friends the people that I’m
with if I don’t get a workout in no way
am I going to go out to dinner and not
enjoy myself because they don’t have the
calories or because I think maybe I ate
a little bit too much so I don’t want to
have dessert
it’s fucking vacation I’m gonna relax
and enjoy myself you know why I’ll tell
you even more importantly because when
you get back to your regular routine
you’re going to regret not having it
you’re gonna regret not indulging over
vacation because before you know it
you’re going to be wanting and craving
and being like dammit I wish I had the
fucking french toast because that looks
really delicious and Jill had it and
look she still looks fantastic right
come on it’s vacation go out have fun
you don’t need a binge you don’t need to
go all out balls out you don’t need to
do anything that is crazy
but have fun enjoy yourself you’re gonna
get back on track as soon as you’re back
home doing your regular routine and just
like you didn’t make all of your
progress in one week
you’re not going to lose all of it either
