Nutrition question for any pilots or those gone from home a lot.
If you are a pilot or someone who is gone from home more than not, how do,you do the nutrition part? I am almost done with my first round of Insanity, and while I have seen improvements in my body, I feel if I could follow something like the nutrition plan it would be much better. Thank you and I look forward to any and all advice.

You can still follow the diet plan while traveling although it does make it more difficult. You need to get good at finding the right places to eat, and picking the right things off the menu. The key is make sure you are getting the right amount of macro nutrients to get your 40/40/20 split as well as tracking your daily calorie intake. Just focus on your diet and do the exercises and you will achieve your goals for the next round. if you need more help, please contact me.

My dad is a pilot, he flew for Southwest for 22 years! He never did Beachbody programs, but we've talked a bit about how he maintained a healthy diet while gone three to four days a week. He would always pack a lunch to take with him for the first day of his trip, along with lots of nonperishable healthy snacks that he could keep in the cockpit with him for the week's trips. He always had jerkey, apples, and bags of baby carrots (They don't have to be kept cold). He would also take some refrigerated items in his bag for the first day, the flight attendants always let him keep the little cold items bag in the soda fridge.) I don't know how your schedule is, but Dad usually was getting in to the day's final airport at 11 or later and showing up at 5 or 6 in the morning, so options were pretty limited. In airports, there is almost always a sandwich shop, so he would get a ham sandwich on whole wheat bread with lots of veggies for his lunch. He is like me and hates mayo, so gets mustard on them. If there was only fast food available in the terminal, he'd usually grab a grilled chicken salad. Usually the hotels he stayed in had restaurants, so he'd grab grilled chicken and veggies or a chicken salad. He's a cereal eater for breakfast, as long as I can remember, he has never had anything but cereal for breakfast, so that's what he had while out of town, too! If his departing flight didn't leave until late, he would expore some and pick up something healthy to eat, but he also allowed himself to try regional specialties in those towns! I will never forget the year he stopped in New Orleans during Mardi Gras and brought me home a chain of the good beads (Not the crappy plastic ones), and a beignet from Cafe Du Monde! Who cares if it was stale and cold, it was still fabulous!
