  • Starting a diet at that time was probably a bad choice.
  • go on a seafood diet - see food - eat it!
  • Id say screw the diet and eat until my hearts content.
  • i say eat and start over. you'll be kinda annoyed that on vacation you have to calorie count.
  • Learn self-control? There's lots of food, but you don't have eat it. Eat the fruit, the fish, etc. Just cause there is a lot of food, it doesn't mean you have to eat a lot.
  • Eat all I want but swim all the way back. It is a very complete fat-burning exercise ; )
  • Lets just say that i may not need a life preserver after my fat ass is done at all the buffets.
  • Postpone the diet and cruise the buffet!!!!!!!!!!!
  • I'd allow myself to taste all that I wanted but not eat to my fill. It's possible to have fun, eat what you want, but just not all that you want. Enjoy the flavor, remember that after a mouthful or two, the food doesn't taste as good. Be happy with one to two good mouthfuls:-)
  • Yes food is everywhere and its free, but I did this!! The thing I enjoyed was not having to prepare the food so I really enjoyed having a freshfruit salad for breakfast or skimmed milk porridge or cereal. There are always delicious salads and seafood, chicken etc And low fat puddings are there as well. I did have an occassional treat but instead of eating all of it - i would ask my companion to give me half of one of his and he got two! That way i could still enjoy it, especially with a teaspoon! Also don't spend too long in the dining areas and take daily walks around the deck. Our top deck - 3 laps was 1 mile!! Most ships also have a free gym so use that as well if you're used to the gym. I don't know about your ship but ours was huge and we felt as though we'd had a workout just by walking around inside it! I actually lost weight on that holiday despite all the alcohol I consumed!!
  • I heard that just taking a walk after you eat can increase your metabolism. What would your reaction be if your ship hit some heavy seas at dinner time and all of the food got thrown on the floor? :p That kinda happened to me when I was in the Navy. We were taking 35º rolls near Cape Hatteras, NC and our food trays kept sliding off of the tables.
  • I'd get off the diet immediately!! Or reschedule the cruise. There's no way I'm going to watch others indulge in all that food while I sit there with my stomach grumbling with a diet coke in one hand and a carrot in the other.
  • I would do the most practical thing I could, get in line and fill my plate, diets are made to be broken and restarted when convenient. Seriously, if I was in the zone with my diet and could comfortably ignore all that tasty, great food, then I would avoid it. If it were going to make my trip any less enjoyable, I would put the diet on hold and enjoy myself... life is short, enjoy it.
  • Allow yourself just a taste of something, don't get a huge heaping. Eat slowly and allow yourself to feel full and then STOP when you feel like you're getting full. Participate in any activities or workshops they have to keep busy and if they have a gym go often to work out and keep away from food. It's hard work, but doable. :) By not denying yourself a taste of something good you won't feel deprived but working out will keep you on the road to success!
  • Without getting to technical, I think I'd first wonder what the hell I was doing on a diet! then, I'd probably eat like crazy. Story of my life.
  • I'd be like, meh, I'll start tomorrow.
  • I'm certain that Cruise ships have a vast array of healthy food choices..all delicious. Of course, I've never been on a cruise..it's just what I have heard from others. If you are going on a cruise for the pleasure of relaxation and whatever destination(s) are involved, you'll do fine. If you are going on a cruise mainly for the food, then you'll be in trouble! Happy Saturday! :) ((hugs))
  • Enjoy the cruise food and all and start again when you get back, lifes too short : ))
  • I'd enjoy my cruise and forget the diet and just compensate when the cruise is over. Have fun.
  • If I was serious about my diet I'd skip the cruise. If I was serious about the cruise I'd forget the diet.
  • Events like the one that troubles you happen all the time, and that's tha main problem for us who have to take care of what we eat. I can only give you some advise: - do your six meals everyday, be careful with quantity. -choose fruit, cereal bars, salads, yogurth, and drink a lot of water or sugar free soda. -exercise every day -avoid bread. -remember quality when you choose your food. -reduce your portions. Dont worry too much. I a cruise, as in life, there are plenty of things to enjoy and not all of them are food. I wish you the best of luck, and enjoy your cruise!!!
  • i would go on the cruise to lose the diet! i say all bets are off when youre on vacation. you should just enjoy yourself. :)
  • i have a magnificent control over my wishes!
  • Exercise restraint and common sense. It really isn't that hard, you should try it sometime
  • try and eat only the healthy food they have to offer
  • Forget about diet ... however if you can avoid too much sweets then avoid. Eat in moderations.... and also after meal (especially dinner) try to walk as much as you can. Do not lay/sit down after the meal. You don't have to do a fast walking but some walking. Also, do not use elevator. Use stairs. Believe me it works not to gain too much weight - I am an addicted cruiser and talking from experience. LOL
  • eat all the food i wanted and start back on the diet when i got back from the cruise =]
  • Cruise food stinks. I loose weight onthose things. Just use caution. Don't think you have to eat everything you see to have fun. Focus on the events around you. There is so much to do!!! Have fun!! Wish I was vacationing as well!!
  • Dear person, you can lose that on your own if you just get your appetite under control and maintain your diet even of there are mountains of food around. You have to get your appetite under control and eliminate cravings! If you can get food out of your head then you can lose that weight. I had to lose over 30 pounds which isn't a ton but still, it took will power (which I didn't really have) and to gain some and get control of my appetite as well. I used hoodia. It's a natural supplement and not a diet pill. I got mine from desert burn hoodia and swear to God the first day I actually forgot to eat and I never felt light headed or fatigued or weak at all, just not hungry or even interested in food at all really. In just a few weeks I was down 15 pounds and I think it only took me like 2 months to lose about 33 pounds. I started walking as well on a treadmill and the lard really kinda fell off. I was so psyched that I started my own website so if you want, and I hope you do, please Google: online health desert burn hoodia :if you would. You can even cut and paste it into google. Click the link and read all about it and my story on my site, It's completely and totally possible. I'm living proof because look at my pic here on my profile. It's the same pic on my site after I lost my weight. Hope this helps you. Cole. P.S. Hoodia is good to have around everytime you wanna drop a couple of pounds.
  • demonstrate self control
  • Personally i would go off, or not be as strict. i'm sure i would remember the food i didn't eat even after the cruise and still feel deprived which would probably lead to a binge anyway. I'd say eat salad and fruit first at meals then what ever you want:) And also do some of the exercise classes they have on the cruise:)
  • eat mainly protein and cut down on the carbs.a little trick is to eat some lean protein before you eat carbs as this will lower your blood sugar level.your blood sugar levels rise when you eat sugar and carbs.and that will make you pile on the pounds.so take my advice and always eat a bit of protein within 2 hours before eating sugar or carbs.off course this will only go so far,if you stuff your face with chocolat cake then the protein can only help.
  • Eat Green vegs and meat and cheese
  • You can eat all kinds of foods, just be careful how much do you eat.
  • I would go low-carb, plus do as much exercise as you possibly can while on the ship - swimming, cardio, calisthenics/toning, etc. I would go for the light salads with vinaigrette dressing, things like shrimp, any fish, chicken breast, roast beef, all the veggies except the starchy ones, some cheese (watch it due to the salt), eggs, and fruits that are low GI like the berries, and cherries. Have some unsalted nuts if available - AND avocado - enjoy!! Do not eat any potatoes, pasta, bread (unless one piece of rye bread- low GI), or rice. DO NOT DRINK FRUIT JUICES OR ANY SUCH DRINKS - certainly don't drink soda - just have water, coffee/tea, and a glass of red wine at dinner. You would have to forgo the luscious desserts and that could very well be the hardest part - but if you do "low carbing" you won't gain much weight, if any!!!
  • I say eat whatever you want but portion control..you are still keeping to a diet and getting to eat anything you'd like
