Just wrapped up a 10 day vacation - didn’t go too overboard on food and stayed pretty active but drank almost every day (not normal for me). Could this be why I’m so bloated and feeling large?

Almost certainly, lots of calories which can convert quickly in extra pounds. Another reason for bloating can be sodium-rich diet which happens when eating out, and a longer flight - those two would subside quickly. Eating out is a lot more calories too due to sauces, dressings etc.

Need some vacation advice. I’m at an all-inclusive that was billed as “luxury”, but food and service are mediocre, the resort is run down, and we’ve had mult instances with other guests making drunken scenes. My wife and I have been doing the all-inclusive route for a while now and I think we’ve come to the conclusion that we need to just go to an expensive, pay as you go resort to get the food, service, and higher caliber of guests. Suggestions on such a place? Carribean preferred. Thanks.
