Eating Healthy While You Travel | How to Live Productively on the Road

Business travel can be productive, enjoyable and even an exciting experience. The time you spend doing
business in other locations expands your business reach and scope and broadens you as a person as well.
Getting skilled at business travel is a solid business goal because there are skills related to business travel
and being productive on the road that are impossible to learn if you don’t get out there and travel.

Many of the skills associated with business travel have to do with how to live productively on the road. This
is especially important if you find yourself on a lengthy business trip. The life of moving in and out of hotels,
traveling by car or airplane and the stresses of the work can wear down even the most robust and
experienced business traveler.
Eating Healthy While You Travel | Maintaining a Healthy Diet While Traveling

Maintaining a healthy diet while traveling for business is a serious challenge and one that really can only be
accomplished with some good planning. You will inevitably find yourself eating in a lot of restaurants on
the road and that kind of food does not lend itself to a diet that is designed for weight loss or for a diet you
must maintain for health reasons.

Eating Healthy While You Travel | Ways to Eating Healthy on the Road

It doesn’t have to be all doom & gloom. Eating healthy on the road may not be as convenient as filling your
stomach with fats and sweets, but that doesn’t mean it’s entirely inconvenient. All it takes is a little
planning on your part, and the health will come to you.
Eating Healthy While You Travel –
        Stock the Refrigerator
        Most hotel rooms have refrigerators, as tiny as they may be. Taking an hour, going to the super market and
        buying healthy food items to keep on hand is a great way to stay away from unhealthy food. Stocking your
        fridge with lunch meat, low fat mayo, yogurt, and skim milk will allow you to eat healthy conveniently. If
        your hotel room does not have a refrigerator, stocking the closet full of items that don’t require
        refrigeration, such as wheat crackers, brown bread or fruit, is also a great way of bringing health to you in a
        convenient manner.

        Order Grilled or Baked
        Your taste buds may thank you for ordering fried or fatty, but your cholesterol and blood pressure will
        thank you for ordering grilled or baked. And, it turns out, it’s the cholesterol and blood pressure you really
        want to impress. Whether ordering room service or ordering at an all-night diner, request dishes that
        aren’t saturated in a vat of ill health: hire baked chicken and grilled salmon; fire the fried chicken and
        breaded pork shops.
Eating Healthy While You Travel –

      Ask for Substitutions
      It may seem more convenient, and more appetizing, to simply order fries along with your burger. After all,
      French fries and hamburgers are the ideal duo of culinary creations. But, part of eating healthy is making
      sacrifices: those French fries must be sacrificed for something less fattening. Try substituting them for
      cottage cheese, fruit, or a side salad. Even if substitutions aren’t advertised on the menu, chances are the
      restaurant will accommodate you.

      Drink Water
      When you’re on a business trip, it may seem rather easy to drink more than you normally would. From a
      bottle of beer to sweetened tea, from a soda to a cup of hot chocolate, these kinds of calories can add up,
      in an unhealthy manner. Cutting them out, or at least cutting back on them, can help keep you balanced.
      The best way to do this is to simply order water. Not only is it calorie free, but it will help to fill you up.
      Water is the only drink that can quench that thirst for longer – It’s Nature’s juice.
Eating Healthy While You Travel –
      Find a Healthy Restaurant
      Most cities these days have a variety of healthy restaurants to chose from. Since a war has been declared
      on trans fats and carbohydrates, organic sandwich shops and salad bars have popped up everywhere.
      Dining in these kinds of places while on the road can make eating healthy tasty and convenient. Before you
      leave for your business trip, spend some time researching the city you are traveling to and find out where
      these healthy restaurants are located.

      Eating Healthy While You Travel | Sustain a Healthy Lifestyle During Business Trips

      With the exception of the holidays, “On the Road” is the hardest time of year to eat healthy. In a world of
      convenience, we tend to go towards the things that are easiest to find, even if those things have 1500
      calories and 100 grams of fat. Yet, eating healthy doesn’t have to be inconvenient: it just simply takes some
      planning.
      By thinking ahead about your diet needs and how you will provide for yourself while traveling, it is possible
      to sustain a healthy lifestyle even during business trips. By supplementing theses steps with exercise and
      rest, you may find that you will weather the trip much better than those who abuse their bodies and find
      yourself more productive as a business person as well because you made the effort to eat well on the road.
