Travel Tips

Updated: Dec 7, 2023




Whether you're jet-setting for the holidays, tackling a business trip, or embarking on an adventure, the temptation to throw nutrition and health goals out the window can be real. Who really wants to stick to their goals when Grammy's banana pudding is on the table?! But staying true to your wellness goals can be easier than you may think.


In the grand scheme of things, there is always a place to enjoy special meals, but keep your nutrition in mind. We've got your back with some nifty tips to help you keep that nutritional compass pointing in the right direction. Because, let's face it, a happy tummy makes for a happier journey!


Travel Tips-

  1. Eat low-carb/low-fat food choices for breakfast and dinner.

  2. Skip breakfast or lunch if you know you will have a big dinner/dessert. While we don't always recommend skipping meals, it would work perfectly for special occasions IF you know you want to enjoy without tracking AND you still want to focus on your goals.

  3. Remember this/not that rule: if you're going to have a big dinner, then skip dessert. If you're going to have a delicious dessert, have a small dinner.

  4. Fill up on a lean source of protein with each meal. Protein leaves you feeling fuller for longer, so focusing on your protein means that you won't feel the need to have the extra serving of mashed potatoes.

  5. Eat until you're 80% full, and stop. Being aware of who you "feel" allows you to make better choices. We want to avoid getting caught up in mindless eating while standing by the snack table or with that extra bag of pretzels if we aren't actually hungry.

  6. Drink 10oz of water before each meal. Most of the time, we confuse hunger and hydration. Making sure you are hydrated will mean that you feel fuller.

  7. Get in 10k steps a day. Stay active. Even if you aren't able to track, you do have the ability to focus on your movement.

  8. Limit alcohol. This is self-explanatory. Avoid the empty calories. Your body will thank you later.

  9. Grab some protein bars and protein shakes. Most clients need to remember to fill up on protein, and when you are faced with choices that don't offer much protein, it's a good idea to plan something that allows you to focus on your protein intake.

  10. Have a good time- Sometimes it's worth relaxing for a few planned meals and not stressing about your intake too much. As long as you can get back on track once you are in full control, a few meals out won't derail your end game much.
