Step 1: Pack some breakfast bars Eat something for breakfast to rev up your metabolism. Try low-fat, low-sugar breakfast bars made with whole grains -- they're easy to pack when traveling. Step 2: Drink lots of water Dehydration can trick you into thinking you're hungry. Be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day. Step 3: Snack on whole grain crackers Skip salty, high-calorie snacks like potato chips and pretzels in favor of baked whole grain crackers. Tip Add some protein, like low-fat cheese or peanut butter, to keep your appetite under control between meals. Step 4: Lunch on lean protein Choose a lean protein, such as grilled chicken or turkey, for lunch. It will give you more energy than greasy burgers and fries and keep your calorie intake low. Step 5: Eat a granola bar to keep energy levels up If you're feeling the late-afternoon slump, skip the candy bars and cakes and snack on a handful of unsalted nuts and dried fruit. Tip High-carbohydrate snacks will give you an instant energy boost but you'll crash a few hours later. Step 6: Split dinner Most hotels and restaurants serve overly generous portions. Share with your travel companion or take half of it home so you don't eat more than you need in one sitting. Step 7: Enjoy fruit for dessert Order a fruit cup for dessert, or stock up on fruit for your hotel fridge to enjoy a healthy treat when that sweet tooth hits. Did You Know? Just one fast food meal can contain an entire day's worth of calories, sodium, and fat.
