Travel Health Council

Healthy traveling seems to be a cracking and oppressive way to not have fun when you're on the road and that's the last thing I want to tell anyone to do. Travel is a time to change your lifestyle and explore what you haven't seen. I think I have a problem with all of this, we have a problem with being fit and healthy.

It all comes with the specifics and how we plan.

When you travel, planning needs to happen before you leave home and finish when you get home so here are 10 tips to help you stay fit and get home in even better shape than you went

Tips on eating for healthy travel

1. Pack treats for the road – whether I'm traveling by car or by plane, I'm never sure where my next snack is coming from, so I always pack my backpack with some fruit. I've always been worried about this when I go through airport security but the fact is I've never been stopped so it seems okay to bring fruit.

2. Water not soda – It is very easy to drink soda or juice and I know this will happen when I travel so I always stop in the grocery store at my destination and buy bottled water. I don't tend to pack water before as airport security is not allowed but it is always good to have a bottle or two in the car for healthy out-of-airport travel.

3. Eat local food – One of the great things about traveling is the fact that you get the opportunity to eat locally grown products and local cuisine. The sooner you can eat fresh fruits and vegetables, the better they are for you, so try to find out what grows on the spot and eat away!

4. Morning and Night Water – Because scheduling is such a mess when traveling, it is very difficult to follow a standard schedule and you probably do not want to. What I do is as soon as I wake up in the morning I drink a large glass or two of water or if in the sketch area is just a large bottle of water and back at night when I am back at the hotel I do the same.

Elevations, different temperatures and a lot of different exercise and eating plans will mess you up so try to have a good watering plan to start and finish with water to be sure.

5. Look at the restaurant meals – I am a big fan of going out to dinner but recognizing that what I eat is not always good for me. When traveling as a family, we always get a kitchenette in the hotel room so we can make the majority of our meals with food we know and then have one meal out a day.

6. Make a Responsible Order – One of the biggest problems we encounter outside of scheduling time when we are on the road is the bad ways we order. Healthy restaurant trips start by ordering judgment and making sure your choice is good.

When ordering at a restaurant, watch how they cook your meal. In most places, just like at home, the chef will cook to taste but not nutrition. Stay away from sauces and deep fried foods and get grilled meat and salad or vegetables instead of French fries

Tips for Exercises for Healthy Tours

1. Book a hotel with amenities – when booking a hotel for your travels, make sure there is some kind of fitness center, search for the hotel if needed. The fact is that a little movement makes your travels more comfortable and gives you the energy to make the most of your days and if you do not set yourself up for success you will not exercise.

2. Organize your exercises and activities – even if you probably don't know when you are going on your travels, everyone seems to plan for the next day at least. In the evening before, decide how much exercise you will get, maybe a walk? Surfing all day? Sitting by the pool? And plan your exercise around it. If you are on all-day excursions, visit the gym for a workout in the morning. If you're just by the pool, start your day with cardio. If you do cardio and walk throughout the day, you might run out of gas before the day is over.

3. Organize Active Functions – Now that you go on vacation, this is easy enough to do, but when you are traveling in business it is much more difficult. You may want to go out at night and walk around the town, as many are jogging about a new city you are in (be careful with an unknown neighborhood) or even just rent a bike to travel around instead of always taking a car, this gets get active and you also get to meet more people and see more in your travels.

So there are nine things you can do. This week on my travels around the West, I had trouble keeping all these intact and ended up suffering. At home, there is a fridge and a timetable but on the road that plan and access to healthy travel was only as good as I made and sometimes didn't feel so good.
