(HealthDay News) -- Vacations don't have to be all about junk food and rest. An active vacation can promote fitness and healthier eating for the whole family.
The American Council on Exercise suggests:
- Maintain your healthy lifestyle rules, but be flexible. Watch portion sizes, but truly enjoy the food. Exercise to offset additional calories.
- Pack healthier snacks if you're planning on a long plane or car ride.
- Drink plenty of fluids.
- Wash hands frequently.
- Plan activities such as hiking, scuba diving or snorkeling, skiing, surfing or a walking tour.
