    I just went on vacation and I didn't record anything just ate when I was hungry and tried to order healthier choices from the menus. I found that I really wanted to have a good time not being completely stressed about every calorie especially when I thought I was over my daily allowance. I still ended up losing 2 lbs in 2 weeks-- not too shabby :-) have a great time

    If it was me, I wouldn't log anything. I'd just try to eat healthy but not stress if I splurge a time or two. You can always get back on track when you get back home.

    Spain!! and you're worried about you diet?!! Enjoy your vacation...I'm pretty sure you won't be tempted by giant turkey legs,fluffy mounds of cotton candy, big giant soft chewy pretzels, those frozen lemonaides,deep dish pizza, those curly cheese fries or anything else someone ....and I'm not saying me......might have a hard time resisting say if they took their kids to an amusement park. Don't worry about the caloric intake...just make sure you take in the scenery, the ambiance....have a wonderful time!!

    hi there,

    i know by experience that logging food on vacation is just ,,,,,,,,,,, blah,,, i tryed to, but it lasted 1 day then i gave up, eating healthy wont be too hard in spain, eat sensible portions, and you should be ok,
    i would not indulge too much with churros, (hummmmmmmmmmmmmmm churros)
    (if you dont know,, its fried up daugh, yummy)
    a lot of time when we are in vacation, my bf and me try to by food out of a grocery store and have a picknic somewhere nice (beach) instead, its nice, healthier and cheaper,, it brings out your sense of adventure :smile:

    lucky your going to spain,,, i lived there for a while ( in the south) stay off the beated track (like you resort if your staying at one) and you will see wonderfull things,

    may
