#Juju25days: 5 tips to stay focused on diet

If staying focused on dieting is already difficult when you have a routine, imagine when you spend most of your time in airplanes and hotels? It is a challenge and I must confess that it was not at all times that I managed to keep my diet focused during those 25 days, but there are some tips to keep the diet that I started to follow and even if the 25 days have already finished, are having an effect.

Tip #1

Drink water, even without being too thirsty.

Research indicates that when we feel thirst is because our body is begging for water, then it is important to hydrate all the time.

Water becomes important in helping to maintain the diet because normally we feel thirsty we take a juice or soda, which often, using the juice example, are not natural and without sugar. Therefore, especially traveling is important to always carry a bottle of water, or even more than one if the ride is longer.

Tip # 2

Stop pinching between meals!

It is normal for us to feel a bit of hunger between meals and eat a few things: snacks, peanut, a biscuit. But stop! When we do this, our body understands it as another meal, and that little thing we nibble on becomes a reservoir of fat.

Ideally, we should have a right interval to eat, two to three hours between meals, so our metabolism has time to digest food better and we set up a feeding routine that our body understands as right.

Tip # 3

Eat and drink at the same time, never again!

You know that dry-mouth craze we’ve had with the good old coca cola? It is not a good idea when the intention is to maintain a healthy diet!

Ideally is that we first make the meal for after at least 30 minutes to drink something. “But how am I going to do this?” It is a matter of habit and you can create this habit over time.

What I normally do is ingest plenty of water 30 minutes before lunch, this already helps to speed up metabolism and thirst. After lunch, I always like to drink something with gusto, and before that, I used to run for coke or a very cold juice. Now I’ve traded these more caloric beverages for a glass of very cold water with squeezed lemon.

Lemon also helps in metabolism, as I mentioned in the other post, and in the detoxification of the accumulated fats from lunch.

Tip # 4

Make purchases before your trip.

This and the last tip are especially for those who live inside airplanes and hotels and already thinks, “Oh my God, I’m going to break my diet with this whole food!” I know, it is tempting to pour into the hotel’s breakfast, especially the wonderful restaurants that I have staying in, but take it easy!

The tip here is, before traveling, to spend in a house of natural products and buy seeds, nuts, dried fruit, cereal bars, gluten-free and natural biscuits, etc. These foods help us quench hunger and maintain our diet.

Ideally is to carry a little in the suitcase and a small bar or cookies in the carry-on, so as not to give up food from the plane. And as for the hotel, at breakfast, opt for healthier options and put chia, the one you buy even, over fruits, for example. This helps quench hunger for longer, helps metabolism and helps you to have a more productive day.

Tip # 5

This last tip is something I discovered recently.

It is possible to request an alternative menu for your airline not to eat things outside of your diet, especially if you have any food restriction, during a long flight. And I’m not talking about the menu that’s already on the plane itself.

Call at least 72H in advance of your flight to the company and order your meal according to your needs. This is a free service offered by airlines for passengers’ convenience during their trip.

Best months to meet Morocco

If you want to go to Morocco, I’ll tell you soon: the best months to know the country are between March and May, during the spring, and September and November, when the country is in the fall. You will understand why!

Morocco can be considered divided into three zones where different climates predominate, being the Mediterranean climate to the north, Atlantic to the west and the south of the country, where the Sahara is located, the climate is desert. But what does it mean?

In the hottest season of the year, which peaks in the months of July and August, the heat may be unbearable for those intending to stay in cities like Fés and Marrakech, located in the hinterland of Morocco, and for those wishing to stroll through the desert.

The temperatures at this time of year are more pleasant in the west coast region, where you can enjoy a pleasant walk, especially in the beaches, but if you want to get to know the main Moroccan sights, your trip will be heavier tiring.

In winter, from December to February, temperatures drop sharply, mainly to the north and the desert, emphasizing that the desert climate goes from one extreme to the other. It is not so bad to travel in the winter, especially if you want as your main attraction the snow, but it is good to beware of warmer clothes.

At this time of year, rainfall increases on a large scale and in regions such as the Atlas Mountains the blizzards are guaranteed. There is the most famous ski resort in North Africa, which was mentioned here in the blog. Winter is perfect for you who want to ski but will take little advantage of other attractions in the country.

That is why I indicate the “middle term” months, in the milder seasons of the year. So you can make the most of your trip through the Moroccan air.
