Nutrition on the Road

Hey everyone,

I am a traveling consultant. I have a huge problem when it comes to eating right on the road. I am in a new town every 2 days and live out of hotels for 3 months straight.

Does anyone have any tips on how to eat right on the road?

I have to eat subway all the time and I was wondering if there are any other options. I know I would burn alot more fat if I knew a way to better prepare my meals for each day. Thanks!

I am a traveling service tech and I had the same dilema! My company just started allowing us to get a room with a fridge and go grocery shopping for the stuff we want instead of eating out all the time. So I just go buy chicken breast and stuff to make in the microwave. I have a bag in my carry on that I keep spices and stuff in for seasonings. You can search the internet for recipes for stuf in the microwave!

Hello

Yes, it IS difficult when you're away from home to stay with a proper nutrition plan. Are you using any free apps like My Fitness Pal? www.myfitnesspal.com If you create an account, you can research menu items at restraunts etc. This will help you with better choices for something other than Subway.

Depending on your hotel accomidations, I recommend going to a grocery store to get a few items. Grabbing some baby carrots or similar veggies have few calories and lots of value. How about a banana or apple? Maybe a protein bar....I like Zone Perfect bars. You can purchase them at your home Costco pretty cheap and just pack them in your luggage. Protein....stick to the "baked" chicken from a grocery store/deli and just remove the chicken.

Hope that helps! If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me any time. I'm always here to help everyone achieve their goals emoticon

My husband works for an airline and has the same dilemma. We are constantly searching for new snacks for him. Right now:

--good quality low sugar granola. We use Bare Naked brands most of the time.
--beef jerky minus nitrates
--quality nuts
--protein shake mix
--Luna bars are whole foods w/ limited junk

He eats out at least 1-2 meals a day and tries to get in one big salad and 1 meal of fish/veggies. He's a huge fan of salmon and doesn't mind eating much of the same thing so when he travels he eats a lot of salmon.

Would love to hear of anyone with more ideas.
