1. Plan ahead: Research the restaurants or dining options available in your destination beforehand, and look up their menu and nutritional information. This way, you can make informed choices and plan your meals accordingly.
2. Pack snacks: Bring along portable, high-protein snacks like beef jerky, protein bars, nuts, and seeds to help you stay on track with your macros when you’re on the go. Pictured Above have been my go-to’s when traveling for my daughters soccer tournaments! If you are driving, there are such great high protein snack options at gas stations now days. So if you feel like you didn’t pack enough, don’t stress!
3. If your hotel has a mini fridge or kitchen, schedule a small grocery order! I always like to schedule and online grocery order for the day of my arrival. Get those high protein snacks (greek yogurt or cottage cheese are my favs) to have on hand. Whatever it is you want to have on hand that is convenient and easy for you, get it! If you brought a mini blender for protein shakes you can order some frozen fruit and milk for your shakes!
4. Be mindful of portion sizes: Restaurants and fast-food chains often serve larger portions than you may be used to, so be mindful of how much you’re eating. You can also ask for smaller portions or share meals with travel companions to help keep your macros in check.
5.Stay hydrated: Drinking plenty of water can help you feel fuller and more satisfied, which can make it easier to stick to your macros. Additionally, staying hydrated can help prevent overeating and keep your energy levels up while you’re on the go. I always am stocked with electrolyte on-the-go packets when traveling!
