Travelling is fun, but it isn’t always luxurious plane rides and glamorous dinners by the Eiffel tower. Often, adventure can come at the price of your health, especially when you’re out there off the path of home-cooked meals and regular exercise. But don’t let that stop you from exploring.

This is important because it is these toxins that usually slow down your metabolism and make you feel bloated, which are all common post-vacation experiences. After your body has settled down, you’ll thank yourself for cleaning up after those bad eating habits and losing the extra vacation pounds, too.
