The Road Trip Diet (Travel and Lose Weight): The Measurement Theory

I have a theory about why the Road Trip Diet is successful.

My theory is that away from home (on a road trip, when traveling), we measure food but not exercise; at home (our normal routine), we measure exercise and do not measure food.

When travelingexercise is constant and not measured. We can walk around San Francisco all day, getting a better hill workout than any gym machine provides. When we eat, portions are smaller because there is no “home” to take leftovers to.

Personally, even though I eat more “bad stuff”, I drink much more water and eat more produce away from home than at home.

At home, we exercise for a certain number of minutes, miles, laps, or milestones. When we eat, our portions are larger and snacks are omnipresent. If you work in an office, temptations of bagels and doughnuts, celebrations, and snack machines dominate.

What do you think? Does my Measurement Theory hold water?
