travel packing tips
Traveling, while exciting and always an adventure, can set us off our regular routines. This break in routine can lead to poor eating habits, weight gain, and sleep loss. To maintain healthy ways to lose weight and to be sure that enough rest is met while on the road, follow these great tips.

1.       Watch what you eat: Travelling, especially when associated with works finds many travelers at the mercy of eating out constantly. With this being the case, try avoiding fast food restaurants, which offer mostly unhealthy meal options. If you must eat at a fast food establishment, look for options that have lower calories and fat content. Choose salads when possible, paying extra attention to using light salad dressings. Grilled chicken sandwiches are also a better alternative. Substitute fries with a side salad when possible, opt for diet beverages or water and do Not supersize.

Fortunately, all eating experiences when traveling, especially for work, are not behind the wheel of the car. When eating at a sit-down restaurant, the same rules apply. Look for entrées that are broiled or grilled. When selecting a side opt for fresh vegetables and choose your beverages wisely avoiding alcoholic and high calorie choices.

2.       Get enough sleep: While this may be easier said than done, getting enough sleep will keep you alter and less irritable. If attempting to sleep in a strange environment is difficult for you, you can try some non-habit forming natural sleep aids.

3.       Exercise: This is the most important of the weight loss tips for staying fit while traveling. Packing a pair of workout clothes and some sneakers take up very little room in your suitcase, but the benefits that you will feel for packing them will be a good decision. An additional benefit to packing the sneakers is that you will be able to get out and walk and explore the local culture.
