Travel and Diet

Traveling for work or pleasure doesn’t mean you have to lose ground on the progress you’ve made with your diet.  An easy travel and diet meal is protein powder and almonds or oatmeal.

The almonds and oatmeal can be measured out and placed in baggies. Along with them, it’s easy to pack your protein and supplements and take them with you, either in a carry-on bag or in your checked luggage. 

Let’s say you’ll need 10 scoops of protein to stay on your plan while you are out-of-town.  Measure out 12 – 14 and place them in a gallon-size freezer bag.  Drop the scoop itself into the bag.  Seal it.  Double check it is sealed. Place that bag in another gallon-size freezer bag.  Seal it.  Double check it.

Why?  Well, the extra protein is because you never, ever want to get stuck in an airport, hotel room, at your in-laws, or anywhere else without an easy go-to meal. 

Freezer bags are thicker than regular baggies, and the double bag method is to prevent the bag from being unintentionally punctured which would not only spread protein powder all over the inside of your luggage (imagine what it would take to remove the powder!!), but also leave you without many meals that you planned on eating!

This probably goes without saying, but I’ll still mention.  If you take Muscle Provider and Ultimate Muscle Protein, both in vanilla, then be sure to mark the outside of each bag so you don’t get them confused.  Obviously if you have one in chocolate, and the other in vanilla, this isn’t necessary.

Next, you could use regular baggies for your Uplift or Muscle SynergyGlutamineFit Tabs, and EFA Gold.  Glutamine and Uplift use the same size scoop so you only need to take one, and again, drop it in one of the bags before you seal it.  Place 2 or 3 of the smaller bags into a single freezer gallon-size bag.

Packing this way saves a lot of room in your bag, and still allows you to stay on plan.
