Whenever I travel, I don't like to use time or money eating, and I generally travel by foot, bike, or public transit. This adds up to eating less (I don't eat on the bus, but do in my car) and exercising more. I lost probably 40 pounds without trying at all when I was living in Argentina for a year, mostly because of these changes.
I really think I would benefit from living in a city and working within walking or biking distance...but I love the space and freedom of living in the country! At the moment I live in a suburb...with only a couple bars in walking distance. Both of my jobs are a half-hour drive away...
But even without the easy infrastructure of city life, I can make the mental adjustments that come naturally on vacation.
