Fast intermittently

Taking a different taste of local foods is the best part of traveling. You may not want to skip this travel experience. But taking excessive calories during the travel period may promote you to gain weight. But if you can eat twice a day and take some days off eating entirely, you can stay fit. Consuming excessive calories will not increase your weight and you will stay pretty much fit during travel.
