Personally, when on vacation, I focus mostly on just being mindful. For example, you can go out to dinner and still eat what you want to order. However, if you are concerned with being hungry after or trying to avoid higher calorie foods, know that you can legit LOAD YOUR PLATE with veggies and greens. Being so fibrous, they can help to keep you more full. It's almost impossible to over-eat on greens. And being so low in calories, they won't put much of a dent in your caloric intake allowance for the day. Additionally, if you're not huge on greens (which is common), you can down a 12-16 oz. glass of water around 15 minutes before your meal. This will fill up your belly and discourage you from over-eating as much as you would've otherwise. Lastly, if you have the discipline under your belt in your every day life already, you can count on yourself to get back on track when you return to your normal day-to-day. It takes 3,500 calories to gain 1 pound of fat. So realistically, whatever you do on vacation, you can undo fairly quickly when you return to 'normal life'. Hope this helps!

Keep it simple - make whole food choices where you can, avoid complex dishes with lots of ingredients. E.g. steak, new potatoes and vegetables. On the move, do the same. Boiled eggs, fruit, nuts, jerky.
