I thought this article of tips for not completely going nuts (diet wise) on vacation was pretty good. I especially liked the tip about breakfast buffets: Drinking a glass of water or cup of coffee before approaching the buffet, so you already feel somewhat full, and then doings a full survey of the buffet before picking what you want to splurge on.

Thanks for this! We're leaving for Disney World with our kids in 10 days and I have been fretting like crazy. I know what to do, but these were some strategies.

Happy vacation!

Europe! Nice girl! When I went, the portions are a LOT smaller then what you get in America so that should help you stay in control.

I too will be printing and reading this because I have a trip to the Outerbanks in about 29 days (but who's counting!!) and it will be hard to resist all temptations but any advice is appreciated. I've been looking for a forum on this topic Very Happy

Oh...the Outer Banks...Healthy_alli-- You should be fine if you stick with all the grilled seafood, salad, and veggies. That will leave room for an occasional dessert.

Lenakh -- I just posted on another thread the other day that my whole family still laughs about what is referred to as "Leslie's European Diet". I lost weight in Europe. I hated the food and lived on salad and gelato and an occasional portion of grilled calamari (in Spain) for three weeks. Came home 10 pounds thinner than when I left!

HermionesMom, I don't have the thing that stopped you from eating - I have absolutely no allergies, so I'll try to taste everything! we're driving Rome -> Amsterdam in 9 days, spanning lots of countries.
Helthy_allie, yeah, that's my hope - the portion sizes, just need to avoid buffets Smile
