    I plan to relax and not worry about dieting on our honeymoon. It’s only one week and with all the swimming/walking around we plan on doing it shouldn’t be too awful.

    I vote for eat what you want and enjoy your honeymoon  πŸ™‚

    I picked try to keep it somewhat healthy, esp since if you’ve been eating really well for the last few months, your body might react badly to a sudden influx of things you’ve been cutting out and you might not feel well

    I lost 15 pounds for my wedding, and ate back about 6 of those pounds while on our honeymoon! πŸ˜€  It’s now 9 months later and I’ve just finished losing those pounds! But i’ll tell you what, they were worth every pound!

    My goodness.  It’s your honeymoon.  Enjoy it.  However, you could work out while on it.  I ran each morning.  It was gorgeous to run to the ocean and see the sunrise.

    I said “keep it somewhat healthy” because of my honeymoon experience.  I was down to the lowest weight I’ve been in years (years of constant dieting) and I just ate and drank whatever I  wanted for our whole week in Maui.  When I got home I’d gained like 3 pounds…not a huge deal, but I had gotten un-used to disciplined eating and found it extremely hard to go back to being good.  I think if I’d kept being just a little more concious about my choices it might have been easier to transition back (and not gain another 7 pounds in the months following).

    While I wasn’t nearly as good as I planned to be pre-wedding, on our honeymoon, in Italy, I was not  worried about it. Yes I had gelato 5 times a week, and an insane amount of pasta and bread. But I also doubt I will be back in Italy ever, if not for a very very long time and never again on my Honeymoon. So go, enjoy yourself and the food, then come back and get back into your healthy habits.

    Good habits are next to impossible to form and SO easy to lose.

    I think it’s crazy not to let yourself relax and have a great time! It’s your honeymoon! That said I wouldn’t eat like 5x what you normally do because you don’t want to feel miserable but I wouldn’t think twice about having dessert!

    I think balance is key. It is very hard to get back into a healthy routine once you let it go. (I lost 30 pounds from Jan to March this year, and have maintained, but getting back into weightloss mode – cutting calories and eating healthier foods so I still am feeling full and getting enough nutrition – has been really hard.)

    If you are walking and doing a lot of activities on your honeymoon, then that will help burn off some of what you eat. If it were me, I’d pick a meal a day to splurge on, and balance it by eating a healthy breakfast and making healthier choices at the other meals/snacks.

    @MeiFrancis:  I agree

    I’d keep it balanced. Splurge on some things but still try to keep your diet similar. Your body isn’t used to digesting certain things so it can have bad reactions. Cramps, gas, diahrrea, etc.
