5 Crucial Diet Tips For Business Travelers - How To Travel And Remain Slim

Author : Ram Gupta



If you travel on business frequently, it is likely that the combination of work stress, disrupted routines, business engagements over dinner and food temptations may have made you balloon up. In that case, weight loss is probably on your mind. Don't worry, there is hope even as you travel, if you are prepared to follow these diet tips for business travelers.

1. It Is No Drought!

Drink enough water. It is crucial to keep your metabolism going and consequently, lose weight. However, amidst all the stresses, pressures and distractions of traveling, it is easy to forget water. Do that at your own peril, though. When water is not an essential part of your travel diet plan, and you get dehydrated, your body may just interpret those signals as hunger, and you could end up overeating. With excess food and a sluggish metabolism, you know just what the result will be! The best strategy is to carry a bottle with you, when you leave your hotel in the morning.

2. Healthy Snacks Exist Even Far Away

When you are out traveling, what usually happens is that you suddenly feel hungry and you have a small window of time to grab some lunch. You stop at the first drive-thru you see and wolf down a burger, fries and a soda. Bad idea, and you know that. In limited time, you could stop by a grocery instead, pick up a couple of pieces of fruits, a bag of nuts, and a low-calorie tuna salad. These food items are ideal for your travel diet plan, and even if they don't make a full lunch, they will drive your hunger pangs away, and you wouldn't crave for the extra mayo, cheese and fries in your burger meal.

If you anticipate that you will be really pressed for time during your next business trip, pack in non-perishable healthy snacks before you leave home.

3. Be Your Own Chef

If you will be away for a while, you will probably be staying at one of those long stay hotels, which give you a little kitchenette or microwave. That is ideal to set up a healthy traveler's diet. Stock a healthy cereal, such as oatmeal, and you could also buy healthier instant meals, which simply need to be heated up. You could even inform your hotel's in-house chef that you are on a healthy, weight loss diet, and they usually won't mind accommodating your requirements.

4. Will You Lose Weight With Booze?

Drinking is a big problem on business trips, and no article on diet tips for business travelers can ever be complete without a mention. You have to control your intake of alcohol, if you are serious about your travel diet plan. Apart from the fact that alcohol has a lot of calories (and cocktails are even worse), it also leads to overeating. Sip your drink slowly and keep your consumption limited to 2 drinks. If you feel like a cocktail, Bloody Mary and Tom Collins are the lightest ones in terms of calories, both in the 130-150 kcal range.

5. The Devastating Daily Binge

You may not want to miss out on the cultural experience of eating out, even if you are trying to follow a travel diet plan, but make sure you are only binging occasionally, and most of your meals are healthy. These days a lot of restaurants have good tasting 'low-calorie' meals. Take advantage of this.

At the end of the day, with these diet tips for business travelers, you should succeed with your weight loss goals and remain slim and trim.
