balanced diet even on your summer holidays! How is it possible to
control everything you eat and not be seduced, while you are resting
on your vacations? Is it worth stress for it even when you spend time with
your friends, relaxing by the sea? Stress is not necessary, for sure!

mind that our health is important, too.
you could follow some basic eating habits that will help you both
having fun and keep your stomach happy.

5 meals a day! The rule of 5 meals a day is very necessary for our
body. Leaving your body without food for hours may lead to
overeating; consume larger meals, with more calories and eat more
than your body needs. Moreover, when you stop eating, the metabolic
process slows down as our body tries to maintain reserves,
considering starvation. So, consume breakfast, a midday snack,
lunch, an afternoon snack, and dinner.
a lot of water! Especially on summer days, do not forget how
valuable water is! After hours of walking under the sun or
sunbathing, our body needs hydration. Even if 8 glasses of water
would be an asset, you should listen to your body. Your organism
knows better than everyone its needs. Water fills you with necessary
trace elements that your organism needs.
for restaurants and taverns that follow your eating habits! Before
reaching your summer destination, find out which restaurants can
serve the food you want. A place that can offer dishes with good
fats, carbs, and protein would keep your body in balance.
more fish! How about avoiding meat for a little? Eat more fish and
vegetables and reduce red meat consumption. Especially in Greece, we
have wonderful fish dishes that are worth trying.
your drink! We know that cocktails are a “must” in summers, but
why do not you try to drink beer or wine? Cocktails are so
refreshing on hot summer days that you may lose control and drink a
lot. That means that you will consume a lot of alcohol and sugar.
Also remember, that you should drink a glass of water for each glass
or swim! Remember that exercise is very important for your
circulatory system and your overall health. We know that you imagine
laying on the beach and sunbathing, but you should also keep your
a bit more dessert! It is important to enjoy your holidays and do
not feel guilty about them. Holidays mean relaxation and carefree.
