Plan a vacation that involves walking. Warning: If you have kids, they might not like this!

If you have a companion, split the meal. A friend of mine and her husband do this. You can also ask for the meal to be cut in half so you can take home the rest. Find tips on eating out and apply them to your vacation.

" I will be staying at a hotel so any ideas for food for the room and mini fridge"
Stock snacks and beverages that you stock at home.

"and ideas for eating out (what chains are best and what to do when it is a local spot) will help!"
We cannot help you there, as we have no idea what restaurants are available to you.
You can look up nutritional information on the chain's website.
Do you best guesstimating for a local spot with no information.

Are you driving or flying? If driving, you can pack a cooler with perishable items and a bag with non-perishables. On my last road trip in late September, I brought some egg dishes for breakfast and yogurts and such.

No matter your mode of transportation (plane or car), if you are close to a grocery you can get a lot to help keep calories and such in check. As for restaurants, if you can check menus online ahead of time to help make the best choices. The more local restaurants maybe aren't as easy to track but you can do the best you can. Also, since it sounds like you have a fridge, you can bring home leftovers and save for the next meal.

Planning a vacation soon. I would love any ideas for staying on track. I will be staying at a hotel so any ideas for food for the room and mini fridge, and ideas for eating out (what chains are best and what to do when it is a local spot) will help! Thanks. emoticon
