Flying can be a very stressful time if you are trying to watch your weight. Don't let the hustle and bustle of air travel throw you off your eating and exercise regimen. Healthy air travel starts at home. You should pack plenty of healthy snacks in your purse or briefcase or carry on luggage. Examples of foods to pack include raw or dried fruit, pretzels, trail mix and energy bars. Pack an empty water bottle that you can fill up once you've passed security. If you need to flavor your water bring along some Splenda or single serving sugar-free “on the go” packets. Eating in the airport can be tricky. Some airport restaurants are starting to provide healthier meal options, but there is still a long way to go. Not only are the meals pricey, but they can be high in calories and fat. If you must eat in the airport, stick to the basics like salad with plenty of vegetables or a grilled chicken sandwich with some fruit. Finally, don't forget about your exercise. You don't have to give up exercise just because you are traveling. Take the time to walk around the terminal prior to boarding your flight. Remember something is better than nothing.
