5 Health Tips While Traveling

Posted by Lacey Byrd on

It's travel season and I've been getting asked a ton lately about how to travel without losing all of your progress.

Here are my top 5 tips while traveling.
.
.
1. Log ONLY your protein.
When traveling, protein is the first macro to be sacrificed and sugars and fats are typically increased. Don't stress about everything... just make sure you're feeding your muscle to help burn the excess calories. (Bring a clean protein powder to supplement in during the day) hitting your protein targets will also help you crave less sugar/fat combo foods.

2. Stay in an Airbnb vs. Hotel when possible.
This isn't always possible... but if you can have access to a kitchen, you will be able to make a lot of your meals at the house and have more control of what goes in your body.

3. Check out the nearby grocery stores and head there FIRST to stock up.
Failing to plan is planning to fail. Don't wait until you're hungry to make decisions about what you're going to eat.

The quality of your fuel is going to have a major impact on the quality of your adventures and when you're hungry your body wants high sugar/high fat foods to bring your blood sugar levels back up... don't get to that point.

.
4. Start your morning off with a 30 minute bodyweight workout.

Your body goes with you everywhere... so should your routine. Starting your morning off with a quick, effective workout that you can do anywhere will get your blood flowing, get your endorphins going, increase your confidence and help you make better nutritional decisions throughout the day.

5. Enjoy yourself!
Food doesn't equal FUN! Food equals FUEL!! Focus on doing more physical activities throughout the day to help you appreciate your healthy body rather than going out to eat multiple times per day. It will help you choose the foods that make you feel energized vs. Lethargic.
