View the Fat-Fighting Foods Slideshow

(HealthDay News) -- Delicious meals can be a fun part of a great vacation. But take care not to end your trip with extra baggage around your waistline.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these healthy eating suggestions while you're traveling:

  • Limit eating rich, high-calorie dishes. If you crave a meal that comes in a large portion, share it with someone.
  • Eat regularly throughout the day, so you don't get too hungry and over-eat.
  • Stay physically active; try walking to most attractions.
  • Buy healthy snacks, including plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.
  • Pack a cooler with healthy sandwiches, salads and bottled water.
