Staying in Shape while Traveling

 Staying in shape is important as one gets older. You can’t eat as much as you used to without gaining weight or affecting your overall weight. Eating is one aspect of travel that allows you to immerse in the culture of another country. Overindulging on good food can happen, especially if you like the cuisine so much. In such cases, you might need to do some extra walking, jogging or any form of exercise while on the road.

It’s difficult to monitor the calories you burned while traveling. However, it takes discipline and a lot of effort to monitor this. It’s possible to do so with these calculators I found online. .

Workout Calculator

One of the easiest exercises while you can do while traveling is walking. Walk instead of taking public transportation or a taxi to your destination. Take the stairs or follow the longest route to your destination. These are simple exercises you can do to maintain your weight or burn some calories.

The workout calculator shows you how much calories you burn with different kinds of exercises. You can input the type of exercise such as bicycling, walking uphill or downhill, running, and others. You can adjust the parameters depending on what you want to do. When you click calculate after setting the parameters, you’ll see the calories burned, BMI and BMR. This is a helpful tool you can use to monitor your weight and the calories you can burn doing certain exercises while traveling.

For me I like taking long walks around cities or parks, or if I get the chance go hiking in another country. You can offset those days when you indulged in the local cuisine with exercise, even if it’s just walking for hours.

Weight Loss Calculator

It takes discipline to lose weight. This weight loss calculator is a tool can help you plan and set targets. It won’t do your running and weightlifting for you, but it can at least provide you with a glimpse of what you need to do to reach your fitness goals. The parameters of the tool allow you to get specific such as activity level, workouts per week, meals per day and others. Once you input the data you need, the tool will begin its calculations. The good thing about this tool is that you can personalize it. You can then have a guideline on how to maintain or lose weight.

Again, these are just tools, it’s up to you if you want to maintain or lose weight while traveling. These tips might help:

  • Eat smaller meals per day instead of binge eating for lunch or dinner.
  • Choose a vegetarian option when it is offered. You don’t have to eat just vegetables all the time. You can one have one vegetarian meal to stay healthy while traveling.
  • Go on long walks while exploring a new city or rent a bike to go places.
  • Go hiking or trail running if you love the outdoors.
  • Try sleeping earlier.

These are just a few tips you can implement to reach your fitness goals even while you’re traveling. It’s important to maintain or lose weight, not just because of looks, but also to protect yourself from possible diseases related to weight such as diabetes and cardiovascular ailments.
