10 Fun Diet Tips in Phuket

Here is a fun diet story you might find useful: You can actually lose weight while enjoying your holiday by trying local food, experiencing fun or unusual things, exploring the island and even proudly coming back with a tan… The majority of Thai people are slim and healthy, but don’t be mistaken: they do love to eat! a lot! and often! I’m not going to list here all the sports and physical activities you could join: these are just too obvious to be interesting. This Top 10 has to be real, unusual… and FUN!

Walk to the End of Prompthep Cape

Explore, discover, walk! So much to see in Phuket, you can convert your extra calories into fun by walking to places instead of taking your photo from the far and back to your car. Walk around the streets of Phuket Town, or walk all the way to the end of the famous Prompthep Cape at the southern tip of the island. Read more


Diet Thai Dishes

There is enough choice of great low calorie dishes in Thailand to eat to your heart content and not add a pound. Eat spicy food seems to help too. Here are some to try :
– Nam Plik: Boiled veggies with shrimp paste,
– Soup Nomai: Bamboo shoot salad.
– Laab Het: Spicy mushroom Salad
– Kao Lao: Veggie soup. Read more


Phuket Night Clubs

Hit the Clubs!

Another type of exercise that never gets boring… go dancing every night! There are so many discos around Patong, you can try one each night for a week using this list. The trick it to drink just right not to spoil the benefit of the exercising… so have fun and get wild! However, if you worry read our Hangover Cure). Read more


Eat Thai Fruits and Phuket Pineapple

Not only the choice of fruits in Phuket is vast, but it’s also fun to discover the taste of strange looking fruits such as Dragon Fruit or Snake fruit. Best of all, Phuket is proud of its tasty variety of sweet pineapple, which is one of the most effective diet fruits (48 kcal per 100 grams). Read more


Similans Islands

Snorkel in Amazing Places !

If you are not a fan of fitness or running because you get easily bored, so bored that you start thinking “is that the best way to use my holiday time”, then go snorkeling, so many amazing places like Similan Islands will keep you busy, you won’t realize how much you exercised chasing colorful fishes all day! (and you’ll get a nice back suntan too!) Read more


mk-suki

Try Thai Suki!

Thai Suki is an extremely popular dish in Phuket. It’s not a diet in itself unless you go for the veggies option: pick the ‘Vegetarian set’ and order as many additional veggies as you like. Drop it all in the cooking pot in the center of your table and pick when ready. MK Suki Gold in JungCeylon has the best choice of veggie, but is more expensive than normal MK Suki in other malls. Read more


Free Fitness in Phuket

Join the free Aerobic Class at Tesco

That one has been around for long time and is still popular. Go to Tesco Lotus near Phuket town at 6pm and join the daily Aerobic class taking place on the parking! You can’t miss it, follow the music! People seems to really have fun doing this… and what a coincidence there is an MK Suki in the very same shopping center!


bangla-girls

Practice your Pole Dancing!

The trend in fitness is pole dancing? You just happen to be at the best place! Just walk up and down Bangla road to see how fit the dancers are. Girls are just dancers, don’t panic, and it is not unusual to see a female customer get onto the counter and give little demo of what she learned in one of these fitness classes. Bars won’t let the guys get up there though, I bet it’s not good for business!


Phuket Seafood

Eat Seafood

Fish, crabs, squids, prawns you name it… all the best seafood you can enjoy without extra calories in one of the best seafood region of Thailand. Make it fun, try local places, it is more fun, often fresher and it won’t cost a fortune! Look at ‘10 of the best Local Seafood restaurants in Phuket‘. (watch your cholesterol level though, can’t have it all!) Read more


Central Festival Phuket

Get a Slimming Treatment at Central

The entire top floor of Phuket Central Festival is dedicated to beauty, cosmetic treatments and not less than five brand new slimming centers using the latest known technologies in a nice and cozy setting. Price is more affordable than in many countries and some treatments can be done during your holiday time, so if you pass by Central, walk around the 4th floor!

Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world in my 20s and never stopped until I finally settled in Thailand in 1994. Then for the past 23 years, my passion for photography and my natural curiosity has taken me to every corner of Thailand, jumping frequently between Bangkok and Phuket and basically everywhere I could go. I run 2 blogs: Phuket101.net and BangkokUndercover.com, I also manage 30 online travel guides in Asia and beyond, including Phuket.com, Bangkok.com and Bali-Indonesia.com
