One of our newsletter subscribers travels a lot for work and asked us for advice about eating healthy and maintaining some sort of fitness regimen when on the road.

Here are a few tips I shared with her.

  • Stay away from fast and fried foods as much as possible!
  • ALWAYS order a salad with dressing on the side.
  • ALWAYS request a microwave and fridge in your hotel room and USE THEM for quick, healthy meals and snacks (e.g., oatmeal, Greek yogurt, bottled water, fruit, egg whites, hardboiled eggs – boil them in coffee machine)
  • Find a local grocery store and purchase a few things to keep in room and purse
  • Identify healthy “go-to” meals at healthier restaurants such as Panera,
  • ALWAYS schedule time to use the hotel gym AND use it!
  • Pack workout gear
  • Walk to destinations when you can
  • BEWARE of high sodium foods when eating out. Most meals when dining out are BIG sodium traps!
  • Eat frequently and in smaller amounts.
  • Pack healthy snacks.
  • ALWAYS bring a reusable water bottle and keep it filled! (TIP: refill it for free at the hotel’s fitness center)
