I'm on the home stretch. 5 weeks, 4 days and 13 hours until I leave. Not that I'm counting. Or excited. No... Not me
So, while I make my plans for my 3 week adventure my mind wanders to the issue of food, exercise, my weight, and the USA. I know that the states has a bad food reputation. And I am going to be eating out every day for 22 days. So, how am I planning on NOT gaining 30lb while I am away?
My first week will be in hostels, and both hostels have a 'make your own eggs' bar, as well as toast, cereal and fruit, for breakfast. I figure 2 eggs, a piece of toast and 2 pieces of fruit will be a good breakfast. After that I am staying where ever my tour stays, but breakfast is included most days. If not my plan B is finding a supermarket for some yogurt and fruit.
I am staying in central city locations, so I hope I will have a lot of options when it comes to food!
I am walking a lot. I plan on taking public transport and foot power as much as possible. I am on a tight budget, so anything else is out! I hope to fit in some ST (bodyweight stuff) every 2-3 days. Although I am in a hostel, so who knows where I will do it... I'll work it out!
Any tips from the americans out there? Any places to watch out for that have lower calories options? Any must eat places in San Fran, Seattle, or LA (the places I am doing on my own?)
