Healthy travel seems like a crazy and overwhelming way of not having fun when I’m traveling and that’s the last thing I want to say to someone. Traveling is a time to change your lifestyle and explore what you’ve never seen. I find that the problem with all of this is that we also have a problem with staying fit and staying healthy.
Everything comes with our specified and how we plan.
When you travel, planning must take place before you leave home and it will end when you get home, so here are 10 tips to help you stay in shape and get home in even better shape than when you left.
Food tips for healthy travel
1. Prepare snacks on the street – whether I’m in the car or on the plane, I’m never sure where my next snack will come from, so I always carry a backpack with me. I always worried about this when I went through the security checkpoints at the airport, but in reality I never stopped, so it seems OK to bring some fruit.

2. Non-soda water – It is very easy to drink soda or juice and I know this will happen when I travel, so I always stop at a grocery store in my destination and buy bottles of water. I don’t tend to pack before it is allowed beyond airport security but it is always useful to have a bottle or two in the car to travel healthy outside the airports.
3. Eat local food – One of the great things about the trip is the fact that you have the opportunity to eat locally grown produce and local cuisine from an area. The sooner you can eat fresh fruit and vegetables after they are harvested, the better they are for you, so try to find out what grows locally and eat away!
4. Morning and night water: as schedules are such a mess when traveling, it is really difficult to stick to a normal plan, and you probably won’t want it anyway. What I do is as soon as I wake up in the morning I drink a glass or two of water or if in a sketched area only a large bottle of water and again at night when I go back to the hotel I do the same.
Elevations, different temperatures and many different exercises and food plans will enchant you, so make sure you have a good hydration plan that starts and ends with water.
5. Watch restaurant meals – I’m a huge fan of going out for meals but I recognize that what I eat isn’t always so good for me. When we travel with the family, we always get a kitchenette in the hotel room so that we can make most of our meals with the food we know and therefore eat one meal a day.
6. Order responsibly – One of the biggest problems we all face in addition to planning consumption times when we travel is the bad way we order. Healthy travel to a restaurant starts with sorting with discernment and making sure your choices are good.
When you order in a restaurant, watch how they cook your meal. In most places, just like at home, the chef will cook for taste, not for nutrition. Stay away from sauces and fried foods and get grilled meat and salad or vegetables instead of french fries instead
Exercise tips for healthy travel
1. Book hotel with services – when you book a hotel for your travels make sure there is a kind of gym, Google if necessary. the fact is that a little exercise will make your trip more comfortable and give you the energy to make the most of your days and if you don’t prepare for success you won’t be able to exercise.
2. Plan your exercise and activities – even if you probably don’t know when you’re going where you travel, at least everyone seems to be planning the next day. The night before you decide how long you will train, maybe an excursion? Surf all day? Sitting by the pool? And plan your exercise around that. If you visit the city all day, plan to go to the gym for weight training in the morning. If you’re alone by the pool, start the day with cardio. If you do cardio and then go around all day, you may run out of gas before the day is over, so plan ahead!
3. Plan active activities – Now when you’re traveling it’s easy enough to do, but when you’re traveling for work it’s much more difficult. You can perhaps go out in the evening and walk around the city, as many people plan a ride in the new city where you are (be careful of unknown neighborhoods) or even rent a bicycle to travel instead of always taking a car, this makes you active and you can also meet more people and see more in your travels.
So there are nine things you can do. This week in my travels through the West I had some problems keeping all these things intact and I ended up suffering. At home there is a refrigerator and a program, but on the road that program and access to healthy travel was only as good as I did, and sometimes I did not do so well
