It is a challenge to stay healthy during any business or vacation travel. Many people end up gaining weight after their trips because of not eating healthy, sitting on airplanes or in cars and meeting rooms for hours at a time as well as being stressed. Traveling causes people to eat fast food and forego exercise because of draining energy levels and time constraints.
Here are some guidelines to adhere to while traveling.
Avoid items loaded with fat and salt
Minimize your intake of fried and fatty foods
Limit your alcohol intake
Limit your caffeine intake
Wash your hands
Get adequate sleep
Drink lots of water
Use the hotel/cruise ship gym – even 20 minutes will help prevent weight gain
Do laps in the hotel pool if there is one (always pack your swimwear)
If the neighborhood around the hotel is safe, take a brisk walk outside
Do basic calisthenics plus low impact cardio inside your hotel room
It is possible to stay healthy during your travels. Although you may have to take some extra efforts to get the proper nutrition and exercise during your time away from home, you will be rewarded at the end of your trip.
