    For the past 8 months, i have been on a low-carb, high protein high fiber diet. Along with working out at the gym, It has done my body good, lost a lot of weight. However, i am going on a cruise with a group of friends and i am going to let my diet go for that period.

    How can I minimize the damage if any? also, what can i do when i come back from this " binge " to recover?

    Stay away from the pizza bar, its all you can eat. That will minimize damage, you can also work out if you feel like it the gym is usually at the front of the boat overlooking the water pretty nice.

    It's only 5 days, why not enjoy yourself and work it off the following week? If you're really concerned then throw in a couple extra cardio sessions.

    They usually have a sugar free dessert at the food court and at the formal dinners. Its no so bad. The cruise food is very good and you'll be fine.

    If your diet is so sensitive that FIVE days are going to remove everything you've done in the past 8 months, you are doing something wrong

    This. Is there a gym on your boat?

    Could always be nice to start your days with a light cardio session if you're really worried :dunno:

    It's a vacation. Enjoy yourself. You cannot reverse 8 months of weight loss in 5 days. Don't go nuts and you'll be fine.

    I'm heading on a cruise in about 15 days also. Looking forward to it myself.

    i don't think it's that sensitive.. i just have been pretty strict about it and i don't want to " un-do " anything i have done in the last 8 months. maybe i am just over-worrying about things.

    If you're that worried every boat has a gym, most meals are all you can eat (so pick what you would normally eat) outside of the formal dinners. But why not just enjoy yourself?
