7 Tips a Registered Dietitian Swears By When Traveling
is the season for planes, trains and automobiles (oh my!) but don’t let the endless travel sidetrack your healthy lifestyle. Whether you’re heading to grandma’s by bus, taking the train to your in-laws or flying to a far-off destination, keep your body and (stomach!) strong and healthy — even when you’re cramped in small quarters for long periods of time. Registered Dietitian at Middleberg Nutrition and avid SoulCyclist ELIZA WHETZEL shares her advice for eating clean during hectic holiday journeys…
Preparing your snacks ahead of time also sets you up for practicing portion control. When you pre-make your snacks and foods, there’s limited risk for overeating out of boredom or stress. Instead, food has a purpose.
Dehydration can also intensify travel blahs, so focus on sipping H20 (and skipping alcohol!) throughout your journey. “Drinking water will help to avoid potential issues with regularity, and will help you maintain hunger levels and prevent jet lag,” says Whetzel. Try to drink at least a liter of water for every hour spent on a plane, and about half your bodyweight in ounces if you’re traveling on the ground.
