“Eating on the run” is trouble for your waistline–plan and pack your food! One of the biggest mealplan-busters is “eating on the run”…..that usually turns into a disaster as far as your calorie count is concerned…there is no planning and you end up eating what taste good….”taste good foods on the run” many times equates to fat-filled, calorie-rich foods.
The simple solution is to plan and pack your foods for the day (as much as possible)….and, if you are going to “eat on the run,” have some good, nutritious alternatives in mind….with the internet, you can find plenty of nutritious alternatives….
Follow a great meal plan full of whole, natural foods like fruits, veggies, lean meats, etc. Eat small meals every 3-4 hours. Keep a food journal and it will help you follow your meal plan.
My “default” nutrition on the run is almost always nuts, fruit or popcorn. You can’t go wrong with those foods…..maybe you can come up with yours….just have a plan!
