Foods to Evoid
White carbohydrates: Ilana says it’s best to avoid white-carb-based meals, like white rice and pasta, before your trip because they cause almost immediate weight gain and a spike in our blood sugar. “They don’t actually provide any strong nutritional qualities,” she told us. “I would recommend, in general, using those white carbs as treats for special occasions and looking forward to having those during your vacation.”
Salty packaged and restaurant food: We know that salt promotes bloat, but most of our salt intake actually comes from packaged and restaurant food, not so much from our own home cooking. Make meals and snacks at home rather than eating out — you’ll want to save the good stuff for your trip, anyway.
Alcohol: “Alcohol breaks down with an enzyme called alcohol dehydrogenase, a supply-and-demand enzyme — so the more you drink, the more your body produces this enzyme to break it down,” Ilana said. This means that the more you drink, the higher your tolerance becomes, which equals more alcohol (aka sugar and calories) to enjoy the same effects. So if you’re planning on drinking margaritas on your entire trip, give yourself something to look forward to by cutting out alcohol beforehand. Plus, your tolerance will be much lower by then.
