How to Lose Weight on a Cruise

by Sherri Eisenberg | September 02, 2016

Surprise! Although cruises have a reputation for indulgence — midnight buffet, anyone? — a cruise may just be the best time to kick-start a fitness and healthy eating program.

And not only does every menu have healthy choices — from egg white omelets and avocado on wheat toast at breakfast to grilled meats with steamed vegetables at dinner — you also have chefs at your disposal, on call to create custom dishes to your specifications. What better time to eat healthy than when healthy includes bowls of fresh berries in the morning and grilled pineapple for dessert?
