staying healthy on vacation

p1Eating healthy… Exercising… Staying hydrated – all while on your Vegas vacation? Does this sound like a recipe for a dull, monotonous jaunt away from home? Or, are these smart ways that can help us feel good and maintain a healthy lifestyle while on vacation?

For many travelers, a vacation equals a guilt-free experience that involves buffet lines, ice cream shops, or bars with any thoughts about healthy eating and exercise frequently left at home. But it doesn’t have to be like this. By following a few simple guidelines, you’ll find that keeping healthy while traveling is quite easy.

Healthy Eating

When it comes to managing your health while on vacation, what you put into your system is one of the main considerations. If you’re traveling to Las Vegas and think that the only options are buffets or unhealthy restaurants, think again. You can find healthy eats at 17° South Booze & Bites at Tahiti Village. Lean sirloin steak, crisp, green salads, and other healthy options are expertly prepared and will leave you feeling satisfied without the extra calories.

Or, head over to SkinnyFats – an innovative restaurant whose menu features half “skinny” choices and half “fat” choices. This option allows you to cater to anyone in the group. You can also try EATT, a new dining spot that delivers a healthier take on French food, located in the West Valley.

The bottom line is: there are numerous options, if you’re looking to dine out without resorting to unhealthy choices or over-the-top buffets. One way to minimize the intake of “bad foods” is to follow the rule of never eating two bad meals in a row. Follow a heavier meal with a salad or smoothie instead of another calorie-laden option.

Move Around

Though you can take cabs, shuttles, monorails, and more around Las Vegas, try to move as much as possible. You can preemptively burn off calories by heading to the pool and taking an early morning swim, then head over to the in-resort fitness center to do some lightweight training. You’ll not only feel great after a quick workout or walk around the city, but you’ll be less likely to want to counteract your exercise by eating poorly. Find a resort that offers a pool and fitness center to help you stay active.

Relax and Rejuvenate

After your exercise, there’s no better way to unwind than getting a massage at the spa. Tahiti Village’s Mahana Spa offers a variety of massage packages, including Tahitian hot stones, aromatherapy, deep tissue massage, and the signature Mahana relaxation massage. And, of course, no spa visit is complete without getting a facial as well. All of Mahana Spa’s facial treatments are fully customizable for your skin’s unique needs.

Keep it Fun

Just because you’re on vacation doesn’t mean you can’t indulge. If you get off track, just make a healthier choice the next time around. It’s all about balance after all. Las Vegas is a city of fun and you won’t want to miss a moment.
