Vacations can be a great way to relieve stress which leads to improved body composition and performance over the long term. However without the right mindset vacations can turn into an eating and drinking free for all that can erase weeks or even months’ worth of your hard work. We sought out a hotel with plenty of outdoor activities nearby, a functional gym, restaurants offering great food choices and finally a full kitchen.
Use Upcoming Vacations as a Source of Motivation.
When you wake up and do not feel like working out and consider making a bad food choice- what keeps you on track? A strong commitment to your goals drives consistency even when your circumstances take a turn for the worse. Post reminders of your goals in visible spots that you will see in the morning and at night.
Barry pictured below worked extremely hard to get into great shape 8 weeks in advance of his trip so he could earn great condition! Posting prior vacation photos, current pictures of your condition or other are very helpful to boost daily motivation. Combining the right training, nutrition, and supplementation programs with great execution is an unstoppable transformation force.
I have lost approx. 10 pounds in no time ( 1 month ) and most of it was body fat . Scott had me start the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder, Alpha Omega M3 and GCX10 and also do the “Kiss Fat Loss Diet.” The diet is very easy for me to follow since it consists of 2 whole food meals with 1-3 servings of Muscle Synthesis Powder and 100% MR between meals.

West Palm Beach Florida USA offers great weather during March so we took full advantage! I did some research beforehand and identified the best hotel based on consumer reviews and other online research. Having a kitchen allows for cooking at least some of your meals. Grocery stores were nearby and one well planned visit can take care of your shopping needs for the entire week. Limiting restaurant meals to 1-2 per day will limit the exposure to possible bad food choices. Fewer meals out also means less expense and waiting to be seated at crowded restaurants during peak vacation seasons.
Anyone traveling with kids knows firsthand that feeding them in the room can be much easier than restaurants depending on their ages. Room service is also an option with plenty of space to eat inside the room.
Use Low Stress Time to Train Hard
Training first thing in the morning with 30 minute 50 caliber routines enabled me to complete 4 weight training sessions during the 7 day trip. Two other mornings included intervals running sprints on the sandy beach. One morning was used for a bike ride. I prefer training first thing in the morning before daily family activities begin to ensure the sessions are well executed. First thing when I wake up I consumed 4 GCX10 , 4 scoops of 100% MR and 4 scoops of Muscle Synthesis Powder 20 minutes before taking the stairs down to the gym on the first floor. Training first thing in the morning requires a more extensive warm up for the joints and nervous system. The warm temperatures are certainly helpful in this regard so I did some dynamic warm up movements outside.*
I structured the workout so that the equipment layout would work in my favor without anyone else getting in the way. It seems that the afternoons are much busier for resort gyms so keep this mind. The 50 caliber training session included 4 exercises within a giant set and I kept the rest periods very short to maximize fat burning hormone release and to improve density factors. The 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis were ready to go in a shaker up to be used immediately post training. I added cold water and was all set to improve my recovery by drink the combo within 20 minutes.*
Personally while traveling my stress levels are ¼ of the normal levels which allows for high rates of performance. Maintaining a normal training session while on vacation is very important as the sessions increase rates of fat burning while most people will inevitably will eat more than usual while traveling. Weight training and interval sprint sessions keep energy levels high and crush cravings at a time when bad food choices may be more available than usual.*
I discovered that week before leaving for a trip is the best time to take a brake from the gym as there are many projects to finish up before leaving town.
Beach Boot Camps are very common. Ask your hotel concierge or do some research online before your trip so you can do some training that differs from what you normally do at home.
Great food choices are available if you seek them out. Most restaurants are more than happy to make substitutions such as swapping bread for vegetables, baked potatoes instead of French fries etc. I always advise my clients to avoid bad items on their plate, if they are not present, they cannot be eaten! Ditch the bread below exchange for more vegetables and you have a great sautéed crab cake.
Cheat Meal Strategies to Prevent Body Fat Accumulation
For those times that you plan eat whatever you want be sure to consume 6 Alpha Omega M3 to interfere with body fat accumulation through several proven pathways. I would contain cheat meals to one meal instead of an entire day when more damage can pile up.*
Cheat Meals to Burn more Fat and Gain More Muscle
Yes you can indulge in holiday eating if you follow the correct strategies to feed muscle while starving fat cells. Our clients have prevented body fat accumulation when taking 6 to 9 Alpha Omega M3 with large holiday meals through several proven pathways. Quite simply the fat cells prioritize absorbing Dr. Serrano’s proprietary blend of raw materials instead of garbage in the blood stream. Furthermore Alpha Omega M3 based on many years of hormonal blood work is designed to keep fat storage hormones from running wild.*
Cleansing The Fat Cell
There are many misconceptions about body fat- it is made up of billions of fat cells, some we are born with and others created by bad food choices such as corn oil used in frying and Trans fats within a countless number of packaged goods you have consumed over your life time. Trans fats were designed to extend shelf life and to lower the fat intake on food labels leading consumers to believe items are “diet friendly” choices. Nothing could be further from the truth as in actuality these fake fats are very hard to get rid of. Doughnuts you consumed years ago and last week have left a trail of trouble that you must clean up to restore proper fat cell function. Otherwise progress will be painfully slow.*
Why Binging On The Wrong Foods Causes Long Term Damage
Highly stressed people often binge and their sources are typically highly refined foods which have tons of fat storing attributes, but the trouble does not end there. The left over toxins, trans fats etc. lodge in the fat cells forcing an unwanted expansion and inhibit the use of stored materials as fuel. The best way to get these cells back into fat burning mode is to purge the garbage with a high dosage of Alpha Omega M3 to not only change the raw material landscape, but to also optimize the hormonal environment- limiting the fat storing impact of stress. Optimizing insulin sensitivity can stop hunger and cravings in their tracks, getting rid of the greatest barriers to success.*
