How To Eat When Traveling
Traveling a lot can make sticking to your nutrition and training plan more challenging.
It just is what it is. If you travel regularly every week or month, then you need a strategy for staying on track to make up for your lack of having a consistent routine.
Strategy #1: Use Intermittent Fasting
Intermittent Fasting (as you may know, we call it, The Double Double) is A great strategy to use while traveling.
Traveling usually means you’ll have less time and might be eating out more, and eating out more usually means higher calorie meals.
So, when you push your first meal back later into the day, you end up having more calories to play with. This allows you more flexibility with your options of food.
Strategy #2 – Use The “Fit Around” Method
See the How To Go Out To Eat section for more details.
Strategy #3 – Buy a “Pocket” Food scale
Buy now, you understand the food scale is the best tool for measuring out how many calories you’re consuming. This will help you stay on track as it can easily fit in your suitcase/travel bag and you can take it with you wherever you go.
Strategy #4: Get in as much N.E.A.T as possible.
If you need a reminder of what N.E.A.T is, watch this video. In short, it’s the activities you’re doing outside of the gym.
Some things you can do:
- Take the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator
- walk the airport terminals while you wait for your plane to start boarding
- Walk to your destinations instead of driving
