Having to travel is one of the worst parts of being on a diet. You have a lot less control over what you eat, which makes it even more difficult for a restrictive diet like the keto diet. Here are 5 helpful tips to stick to your keto diet while travelling.

Stock Up on Snacks 

Given that the keto diet involves some intermittent fasting, you’re likely immune to the call of snacking. It doesn’t matter how well you can resist snacks though, everyone gets hungry on a long flight. 

That’s why you should make things easier for yourself and pack up on some keto-friendly snacks. There are lots of great protein bars, meat sticks, and other keto-friendly snacks out there to choose from. You could even make your own and pack them up ahead of time. That way, you’ll know exactly what’s in your food. 

Stay Somewhere With a Kitchen 

Don’t want to leave your diet in the hands of restaurants and take out joints? The best thing you can do for yourself and your diet is stay somewhere that has a kitchen where you can cook your on food. In fact, staying in a place with a kitchen can save you a lot of money in the long run. 

Head over to the grocery store when you land at your destination and find some good food before settling in. There are also some keto-friendly condos and places to stay where the staff will stock up your cupboards for you. Talk about service! 

Keto food is easy to make and freezes well. With some work early on you could have more than enough food to last you for your entire trip. Then you’ll never have to worry about getting the right kinds of food. Being able to make and prepare your own food is the easiest way to stick to any kind of diet while travelling, and that includes the keto diet. 

Travel with Support

The easiest way to succeed with any kind of diet is to have someone there to support you through it. If you’re the only person in the travel group on keto (or you’re travelling alone) then you definitely need to have someone you can get in touch with for support when you need it. Support groups are an amazing part of sticking to keto and getting the encouragement you need to keep going. 

Having the right support around could even show you that you have more options than you think when travelling. Are you going on a cruise and don’t think there’s many options available? Most cruises are actually very keto-friendly. They have things like omelet stations where you can make – or order – eggs just how you like them. There’s a lot of meat and vegetables on cruises too. Check out the buffet and see what’s on offer. Having an outside perspective could be just what you need. That’s what you get with support and help.

Go Out for a Jog 

It helps to start out your day with a nice walk or jog. Not only should cardio be part of your modern weight loss program, it’s also a great way to explore the city before everyone else is up and about. Remember that you’re there for a vacation. Explore the city or the town or rainforest or wherever you happen to find yourself in your travels. Make it about seeing the sights and enjoying your time away instead of thinking about food. Focus on how wonderful and beautiful travel is. Sure, it’s a good excuse to try out lots of different foods, but that’s not all there is to it. Many people on keto actually lose weight while on holiday. Make yourself one of them. 

Get Some Sleep

Have you ever noticed that you tend to get hungrier when you’re travelling? Sleep may be the cause of – and solution to – the problem. Sleep keeps levels of the ghrelin and leptin hormones in check. You should always try to stick to your regular sleeping routine even when away from home. Avoid napping because it can really mess up your natural circadian rhythm and stop you from getting the deep REM sleep you need. 

Sleeping is one of the most important things you can do for your health. It goes so much further than most people know. It goes so far, that it could be the secret to keto success while travelling. Get plenty of rest and you’ll have less problems keeping your hunger in check. 

Summary 

Travelling and dieting don’t exactly go hand in hand. With a bit of foresight, support, and dedication, you can keep keto while travelling. Prepare ahead of time and make sensible decisions and everything will go smoothly.
