1) Ensure adequate fibre intake
Constipation is a common issue during travel, and the symptoms that build up as a result of this, including bloating, pain and discomfort, have the potential to impact your quality of life and the quality of your holiday.
Try to ensure that every meal has a significant portion of vegetables to help hit your fibre intake. However, it is generally advisable to avoid unpeeled fruits and salads washed in unfiltered water to prevent traveller’s diarrhoea.
Tip: Pack some supplies to bring in your suitcase if you think this will be a struggle, like dried fruit and nuts to snack on, and some a small bag of chia seeds so you can add this to your breakfast for a boost of fibre.
