Non-training/holiday diet

Hi,
Next week I am off on holiday and won't be training for a week (actually 8 or 9 days due to the way my routine works).
Just wondering what changes I should make to my diet given that I won't be training.
Was thinking I'd back off on the calories for a week, but should I carry on taking protein every day?

At the moment my diet isn't strict, but I am trying to bulk, so fitting in three full meals and two or three substantial snacks - so probably five or six "meals" a day.

    Are you going abroad for your holiday?  I would say just enjoy yourself!

    Just don't go nuts on food and alcohol but have fun.
    It is a holiday.
    Eat 3 meals and a couple of snacks- try to eat protein every time you eat.

    Unless you are lying on a beach for 10 days then you'll be doing lots of walking.
    I went away for 10 days recently, to Edinburgh.
    Didn't train at all, ate pretty well, no alcohol, did a couple of runs (great way to see a new city)
    Came back a couple of lbs lighter. Nothing noticeable, no muscle loss.

    Just enojoy yourself and eat plenty. It's good physically and mentally to take a regular week off every 2 months or so.

    agreed with all of the above. . if your on holiday, eat what you want / drink what you want. 1 week of indulgence will make you feel good and will give you alot more focus in the gym and with your diet once your back.

    Eat/drink what you please. It's a holiday. Forget the following words:

    Clean
    Diet
    Protein
    Bodybuilding
    Fitness

    Bollocks to getting enough protein. Just eat good food when you want and what you want. Enjoy it. Don't eat a load of junk tho it's crap, eat at good resturants, local food is often good (place depending of course).

    Not going abroad  - camping in Dorset - and won't be binging on food.
    I think I'll just take some protein powder if I can fit it in the car

    But forget about the rest - cheers for the advice.
