Tips on Staying and Eating Healthy While Traveling

It’s easy to throw out your healthy eating plan while you’re traveling. Last year, we wrote about being a savvy/healthy business traveler, but whether the trip is for leisure or business, the constant rush of activities may make it tempting to stop at a fast food outlet whenever hunger strikes—or indulge in unhealthy snacks or beverages. If you keep healthy food choices on hand, however, you may maintain a healthy regimen during your travels with no regrets.

Here are some tips:

  • Don’t forget to eat breakfast. This is often easier said than done in the whirlwind of a vacation or business travel. However, breakfast helps prime your system and prepares you for a full day of activities or business meetings. If your hotel offers a complimentary breakfast, choose a meal high in fiber and protein, such as whole grain toast with peanut butter, to give you instant energy and fill you up until lunch. This way, you may reduce the temptation to snack in a few hours’ time.
  • Pack essential work out items. Start right away wherever possible (walking in the parking lot and airport, etc.) and check out the facilities such as a gym or park near your destination. Most importantly, stick to your routine as you would at home (no excuses!)

Taking care of yourself while traveling will stack the good health odds in your favor. Through preparation, pampering, attention to body cues, and diligent monitoring of changing conditions, you’ll lay the foundation for wellness so you can make the most of every moment.
