The best times of the year are vacation time!
Unfortunately, the excitement of relaxing by the sea and drinking pina-coladas by the dozen does leave behind its mark when it's time to get back to the drudgery of everyday life.
Marks like a bulging belly, a demolished diet plan, and the feeling of absolute self-loathing.
But it doesn't have to be that way.
Tip #1 Drink a Lot of Water!
Traveling stimulates our mind and body like no other activity. But it also dehydrates us pretty fast.
And so does eating out at restaurants (which piles us up with salt, sugars, and fat) and drinking a lot of alcohol.
That's why the quickest route to detoxing after your holiday binge is always through the land of drinking tons of water.
In fact, you should drink more than the recommended 2 L of water every day for at least a few days after you get back from your vacation.
Because the alternative can mean bad things for your body.

Tip #2 Avoid Coffee and Caffeine
Vacations are tiring, even though you may not feel that way when you are enjoying the scenic beauty.
That's why you should avoid all drinks that contain stimulants in them, which includes coffee and regular tea, after you get back from a holiday.

Tip #3 Eat More Fruits and Veggies.
We all know why fruits and vegetables are good for our health.
But do you know that they can speed up your post vacation detox and prevent constipation that commonly strikes us after long transit times at the airport or train station?
This is because fruits and veggies have a lot of water, nutrients, and fibers in them. All of which improve the health of your digestive tract and get rid of your bloated belly fast.
And their bright colors are not just for fun.
Tip #4 Drink Lemon Water Before Your Daily Cardio
There are no shortcuts to losing weight.
But there are ways to speed things up considerably.
That's where lemon water comes in.
Having a glass of water with fresh lemon squeezed in it (without any salt or sugar) before you hit the gym (or jogging track) after you return from vacation prevents constipation and problems with digestion.
In fact, the effects are pronounced even if you run or swim or climb stairs for just 10 - 15 minutes after drinking this natural tonic.
Tip #5 Have a Small Breakfast that is High in Fiber and Proteins
Eating large breakfasts after you return from a crazy vacation is a disastrous idea.
But that doesn't mean you skip your breakfast altogether.
A healthy alternative is to eat a small breakfast that is rich in fibers (fruits and veggies) and proteins (boiled egg or paneer and nuts).
That way you will stay full till lunch time, and also evade the call of food cravings.
