I'm fortunate in that the only travel I get to do is to see my boyfriend in London. Thus, I only fly BA or Virgin, so I can order great vegetarian lo-fat meals, and eat as well or better than on the ground. They don't limit water consumption, and I am hugely into drinking water. So, if I fly elsewhere, I've made a point to ask for a diabetic or vegetarian meal.
Once I get to London, I live on fresh fruits, a little fish, and whole grains. Easy to do, as my boyfriend has certain allergies, and knows great (inexpensive!) organic markets. So, if I travel elsewhere, I go on Trip Advisor and find out where the organic marts are.
We pick up fruit and oats and we walk everywhere. It's an infinitely walkable city. I walk 90 minutes a day here in Boston, but with him, we easily log hours. So, if I travel elsewhere? I make a point to find out how and where to walk safely.
I generally lose between 5 and 7 pounds every week-long trip now!
