The simple (and somewhat obvious) reply:
Calories are calories the world over; burning of calories is burning of calories the world over. One must expend more calories per day than are consumed to avoid adding body weight. Wherever and however an individual achieves this is entirely up to them.

For Slimmer: In Paris, you'll do more walking than you can possibly imagine, so you'll be burning off those calories. You can always enjoy a light lunch and three course dinner or vice versa. You'll find the portions in Parisian restaurants are for just one person (as opposed to the platter large enough for a family of four served at many restaurants stateside). And, while bread is served with every meal, you're not as likely to be stuffed with bread and salad before the main course arrives. The salads, as entrees (appetizers), are smaller and exquisite with light dressings. (Not to be confused with main course salads.) The fancier the restaurant, the less advisable it would be to order one appetizer or entree and "share". But, ordering one dessert with two forks is fine. Why not each order something different for each course, though, so you can try many different offerings? Paris is SO beautiful at night, you'll want to walk all over, stroll along the Seine, and wander "home" on foot.

When I travel using public transportation I find myself walking more and can eat all I want without gaining weight. It's when I'm traveling with a rental car that the pounds start piling on. Walk, walk, walk, climb those stairs!

You can also hire a bicycle, or even do a biking tour.

To 25lbs: Congratulations on your weight loss! Staying slim in Paris will not be difficult at all with all the walking you will do. You can eat what you like, you may even lose weight if you're not accustomed to all that walking. The hard part is getting back on your regular regime once you are home again!

I usually don't gain any weight when traveling and eat lots of rich foods. I think the reason is that I don't snack when traveling. Maybe that will work for you. Eat your three meals a day - whatever you want - and try not eat in between. doing that and walking should keep you on track.

Pudgie--DO eat the breakfasts in Ireland and the U.K. If you do, you'll have no need for lunch. I usually skip the bacon and sausage, and eat the egg and bread, and have some cereal.

Also, how long were you in Europe when you gained 10 pounds? I'm guessing around 2 weeks. You would have had to do some serious eating to put on that much weight. If you've been slimming down recently, I think you'll be much more sensible this time around, and make better choices.

Wow I've been to Hungary twice and both times lost weight, first time in 1999. I lost 12 pounds in two weeks and in 2000, I was there for three weeks and lost only 15 in three weeks, but it was freezing and did a little less walking that trip. And I ate very very well! Those Hungarians love to fed you!I am going back late May, I hope I don't gain weight this trip. Walk walk walk like others say. Oh drinking alcohol will put weight on too. Watch out for salty things as you can retain water from that also.
