So rather than simply relying on greasy foods and takeaways, pack some nutritious foods such as fruits and vegetables, yogurt and healthy sandwiches and take them with you on the road.
If your hotel offers a continental breakfast, stick to fruits, cereals, and proteins. If your hotel has a cooker or microwave, look at bringing your own healthy food with you.
If you do eat out, restaurants will usually serve large portions, so be careful and don’t be afraid to not eat everything on your plate. If you do eat a little too much on a meal, simply cut back on the next one.
Try to fit in smaller meals or snacks rather than 3 square meals, as your body needs fuel every four hours or so. When you eat out, avoid starters and don’t miss meals.
Try to avoid eating large meals at night as your body gets ready for sleep and slows down, it also burns calories at a much slower pace. Never eat bread before bed, and make sure to avoid the butter. Choose fish or poultry for your meal instead, and include vegetables as a side dish.
