Warrior diet - road warrior dieting strategies
If you find that you are constantly sitting on a plane, in a car, or on a train, whether it be for work or pleasure, you can still eat a healthy diet.
Today I wanted to give you a few tips surrounding this so you can travel for business or pleasure and it does not have to lead to gaining weight...in fact the opposite.
If you are always running around or are in between cities, it is so tempting to buy food from a vending machine or from airport restaurants. Unfortunately those food choices are usually full of trans fats, sugars, and processed carbs, and can leave you feeling unsatisfied, while also causing you to pack on the pounds. A lunch of potato chips, a plain bagel and cream cheese and a pop is NOT going to help your waist line. So to prevent yourself from going for the first thing you see during your travels, plan ahead. When you know you are heading on a trip, you can:
* Cut up fruits and vegetables and pack them with you * Pre-cook some protein the night before and bring it along * If you will be traveling for a long period of time and are worried the food will go back, you can drink your nutrients! Making a fruit shake or a protein shake and adding flax seeds, oats or mixed nuts, along with some greens + will keep you going during your trip. * Bring protein bars, or even better, make some yourself with protein powder to bring on your trip.
Really, packing some food can make the difference. I know when I travel I try to pack a few things at least to tie me over. Food on the planes is not very good, and the airport stuff is expensive and usually leaves me feeling bloated before jumping on a plan. Not a very nice feeling! If you are heading somewhere for a few weeks, it is a great idea to pack some foods that you know are good for you and that you may not be able to find at your destination city. You can bring pre-made healthy choices and your favorite protein powder along to ensure you are getting everything you need while you`re away. You can also pre-ship some items before you head on your trip, so that when you arrive at your destination, your protein powder, cooking utensils, cheese, eggs and so on are there waiting for you. It is also a great idea to stay in a hotel that has a kitchenette so that you can make your own food and avoid heading out to restaurants all together where you won`t be able to control ingredients or portion sizes. Plan ahead...it will truly pay off. Taking a few minutes to organize your food for your trip can really pay off. You will look and feel better, and will be able to enjoy your trip even more by eating right while you`re there. Another great idea when you are traveling is choosing your hotel based on its location. Is it close to a park or a walk path? Does it have a gym or pool? If so, book it! If not, keep looking. There are always hotels with these amenities in every city! Have a healthy and safe trip next journey!
