    Personally, I enjoy myself on holidays and know it's going to be really hard to get back on track when I come back, but I do and have done.

    At Easter I gained 19lbs in 10 days - which shocked me but I lost it all in the next 10 days back on SS. I was surprised it was that much as half of the 10 days I did eat really sensibly and much less than when in full splurge mode!
    I even found myself in the first few days looking at stuff and thinking "I could eat you but I don't want to" and not eating it. However, once the food demons came back, it was just like old times - a salutory reminder that this is a battle I shall be fighting for the rest of my life.

    Whatever you decide to do is up to you, but whatever you decide to do, enjoy your holiday!

    I went to Italy for 16 days in August. I had a CD bar for breakfast and one shake pack in several coffees throughout the day. For luch I usually made a salad and took it out with me. I had whatever I wanted for dinner including vino rosso. I have to say though that I honestly did not WANT the high carb options, but if I had, I would have had them. I think one of the keys is to keep active if you can. We walked a lot, (mostly around museums art galleries and SHOPS) and I had lost another 4 lbs when I got back.
    Hope this helps.

    Hi

    I went on holiday in May and i had a choc shake for breakfast, a toffee bar for lunch and a chicken salad in the evening. I was already on maintenance with LL so was also drinking wine. I put on a couple of pounds i think but that soon came off.

    Basically, stick to CD with a light chicken salad meal in the evening. If you break the diet you will feel rotten during and after your holiday.

    Is it worth it?

    I did CD on holiday but ended up nibbling!! I am going to centerparcs in November and plan on doing 790. I have made my mind up to have a couple of treats but not going mad.
    I havent had a problem restarting the diet when i've slipped up but some poeple do so just be aware it can happen. :)

    Have a lovely time. I love America!! :)

    Hiya Pebbles, I've just been away, only on a short break 4 days, but I did 1 x shake am, 1 x shake lunch, bar for afternoon snack then salads for evening.

    I felt better for that and have lost 3lbs.

    I think as long as you choose carefully then a 790 is a great idea when on hol x

    I'm going on a short break to Holland in October and will be taking a planned break: much along the lines of Ann in Italy.

    I'll be staying away from the yummy Dutch chocolate & Ameretto covered pancakes and chocolate coated fruit kebabs (just how do the Dutch stay so thin???)

    I'll deal with the consequences when I get back - although if I plan it well, any damage will be minimal.
