Spring is here, and spring break is around the corner for many families. While spring break may be a chance to cut loose and relax, there is no need to undo all of the hard work you have been doing to lose weight and get healthy. A bit of planning and a few key items from The BariatricPal Store can help you stay on track during your vacation.
Hydration can be your secret weight loss weapon on vacation. Staying hydrated improves energy so you can be more active, and prevents any chance of mistaking thirst for hunger. An Increment Bottle can help you stay hydrated. You can see motivational signs as you sip your way through the day. All varieties let you infuse fruit into your water to make hydration easier. Choose the size that meets your needs, from the 17-oz. Bambino Infuser to the 30.5-oz. Summit Beaker, and sort through features such as clips for holding and flip caps or straws for drinking.
Another option is the H2GO Force Stainless Steel Thermal Bottle, available in 10 colors. It keeps hot drinks hot for up to 12 hours and cold drinks cold for up to 24 hours. It is leak-proof, has no condensation, and is easy to clean. You could fill it with coffee before leaving the hotel in the morning, then rinse it and fill it with water at lunch.
Having water with you is one thing. Remembering to drink it is something else. The Ulla Hydration Reminder takes the burden of remembering off of you as it automatically reminds you to start sipping at the beginning of the day and keep it up all day. The attachment fits on all bottles and is available in seven stylish colors.
Keep your vitamins and medications straight all week with the BariatricPal 7-Day Pill Box and Cutter. It has room for most pills so you never get confused about which you have taken. The cutter is airline-safe and it contains the pieces so that they do not go flying when you cut them.
Of all the foods you could pack, Protein Bars may be the single best choice. They are compact, delicious, portable, and ready-to-eat. You can use them for a quick breakfast, a snack on the road, or a meal replacement if you find yourself at a restaurant without a diet-friendly menu. Our selection of Protein Bars includes bars with up to 23 or more grams of protein, sugar-free and low-carb options, and flavors ranging from chocolate and vanilla to peanut butter, pretzel, and Jamaican bison!
A few good choices can go a long way when packing for a trip. Stop by The BariatricPal Store to see what else can help you stay on track while away. Vacation should be fun and healthy! Happy Spring!
