    Mexico vacation panic

    Primal Fuel
    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 lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

    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

    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 :-)
