Cruisin to Lose
Recently, I won a family cruise on the Regis and Kelly talk show. For a person whose business is fitness that is a good news, bad news dilemma. Statistically, an average of 5 lbs. per person is gained on a cruise. The camera adds about 10 lbs.
I set out to see if it was possible to have a great time, enjoy the food and not gain the obligatory 5 lbs. ( My other alternative was to hide behind a potted palm for the duration so as not to be seen by the cameras.)
The following five tips really work:
1. Walk, Walk, Walk
2. Use the Stairs
3. Dance the Night Away
4. For Every Alcoholic beverage you consume have two large glasses of water. I think this one is self-explanatory.
5. Limit Yourself to one luscious dessert a day.
The key: I limited myself in such a way that I did not feel deprived and increased my activity so that I felt good physically. I did not gain a pound.
And if you get a peek at me on the Regis and Kelly show, I won't mind at all.
