The top 10 "shredders" who collectively lost 195 pounds in six weeks, were featured on "Katie" and Hotels.com awarded each person a three-night all-inclusive stay for two at a RIU Resort in Mexico, along with gift cards for air travel and incidentals.  The 10 challengers were able to confront serious health problems such as high blood pressure and diabetes and, following their initial successes, have vowed to continue the weight-loss challenge for another six weeks.  These inspiring individuals will stay at one of RIU's diverse resorts on the beaches of Cancun, Riviera Maya, Los Cabos, Vallarta or Mazatlan, Mexico where they will experience the thrill of the white-sand beaches, outdoor activities and fresh cuisine.

"Hotels.com chose Mexico as the perfect place to ensure these hard-working individuals are able to maintain their active and healthy lifestyles, while also finding plenty of ways to relax and indulge along the way," said Taylor L. Cole, APR, travel expert for Hotels.com. "It's hard to keep health top of mind while vacationing, with delicious cuisine to distract from normal fitness routines. RIU Resorts will help the recipients find an ideal balance while enjoying the breathtaking Mexico scenery." 

Hotels.com recognizes the challenge of maintaining healthy habits while traveling. To help travelers stay the course, Hotels.com has compiled the below series of tips from health-wise sources on how to incorporate wellness into any trip:
