  • Mexico vacation panic

    Hi,
    I'm new to this. I'm 6 weeks into going primal. Not totally there but doing very well. Lost 5 lb so far. Just this last week my energy has really picked up. Finally over the low carb flu thing. I am going to Mexico in 2 days. One of those all-inclusives over indulging places. Going with friends that I know will be in full party mode. I think I'll be find with the food because there is always buffets with lots of wise options. My biggest concern is the drinking. Red wind is awful in Mexico. My friends will be pounding them down. I plan on staying away from all the fruity sweet drinks but I'm sure I'll have my far share. Just don't want to undo everything I've do so far. Any tips on choices or advise. If you slip for a week is it like starting all over?
    Thx

    Don't drink the water, that include ice...(doesn't affect everyone)

    Drink Tequila straight, add a lime if you need

      If you are panicking over a vacation, you are taking your diet too seriously.

        You don't know how many times I have told myself that. Good advise.

          You may get bloated and sick but having a good time with friends and creating good memories are worth it. You might get "set back" a week but no more.

              You could not drink? Or is that too crazy?

                I'm sure I'll drink a lot less then past vacation. Much more in tune with my body but yah, idea of not drinking seems crazy.

                  When I travel I try very hard to keep two meals a day primal and then have whatever I want on the last meal. I don't freak if I can't do it, or if the meal is only "sort of" primal. If there is something the area is really well know for I always indulge even if not primal because I really love food
                  Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )

                    Thanks. The two meals thing should work out good. That would be breakfast and lunch at the buffets which have lots of choices. Thank god guacamole is allowed :-)

                      The ice will be fine at an all inclusive resort, so will the water. (how do you think they make all those slushy drinks?) Although I will say, I never drank the water straight, always had a huge bottle with me. But i did drink slushy beverages. I suggest rum/soda water/lime. If you can get your hand on some mint that would be great too. Unsweetened mojitos are delicious and super refreshing.

                      And no it won't be like starting over. You have built your foundation, and know what it takes to maintain this lifestyle, right? Have fun.

                        Where are you going in MX if you dont mind me asking? I went to an all inclusive in Xpu-ha last year and got married and it was fabulous! I say don't worry about it too much and enjoy paradise! Hope you have a great time

                            Northern California margarita. Club soda, tequila, lime juice. That's what I drank when I was in Mexico.

                            I also had pina coladas, daiquiris, and other sweet drinks though.

                              Mexico's wine industry is growing up. I really like a bunch of the Mexican wines I've tried. Stick with red wine and vodka with soda water and lime.
