It's summer-time and the livin' is easy -- so naturally it's time to take a few precious days off and kick up your feet.

I'm on vacation!" could wreak havoc on your eating habits long after the suitcases are unpacked. I've got some great ideas for you that will ensure that sticking around town in the sticky weather isn't the only way to cure a case of the vacation induced regrets. Read up on my tips and recommendations and you'll always be prepared to have both a happy and healthy vacation!
