Whilst I was in Mexico, I ate lots of food. Enough food to put on a few kilos! Although thanks to the heat, a little bit of exercise and cutting down on portion sizes, I managed to lose weight!
In Mexico, I stayed in an all inclusive hotel - which meant unlimited food all day! It actually is a recipe for weight gain (no pun intended)
Holidays are about having fun though, which is why I decided to eat, drink and be merry. I did set myself a limit, because gaining weight will definitely not improve my mood!
Here are some photos of some fab foods I tried during my Mexico:
|Mocktails! I limited it to one a day! They are full of sugar and lots of calories!|
|I tried to make sure that half of my plate was full of salad - the rest full of 'real food'|
|I made sure to drink plenty of water. Did you know, that your body cannot tell the difference between hunger and thirst? If you think you are hungry, simply drink a glass of water!|
|Desserts - I am a sucker for them. I did end up only eating fruits in the last week of the holiday though!|
|Some of the food in the market|
|Exotic fruit - tastes delicious (sorry, forgot the name)|
|This is what it looks like inside :)|
|Mexican food - refried beans, rice, fajitas - yum :)|
|Fruit covered in syrup|
|Vegetarian sushi - delicious!|
|Vegetables with tofu|
|Fried rice - DELICIOUS!|
|Our very own Japanese chef!|
|Cooked banana with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce|
|The beautiful Italian restaurant in our resort|
|I tried to eat lots of vegetables during the meal|
|Yummy pizza - I could only muster 1 slice! I tried to leave a bit out - just because you have food on your plate, it doesn't mean that you have to eat it ALL!|
Can you control yourself whilst you are on holiday?
