I would like to give a huge congratulations to my client Peter for his amazing transformation! By exercising 3 to 4 times per week, sticking to his Precision Nutrition meal plan and healthy habits, in just 8 weeks Peter has lost 26.4 lbs and 15.25 inches! You can really tell the difference in the face and midsection. Amazing and great work!!
If you travel quite often chances are you are eating out for most of your meals and not exercising as much as you normally would. Here are a few ways to stay on track with your exercise and nutrition plan so you don’t lose the momentum you have gained:
at your travel destination, try to choose a location to stay that is close to a gym and grocery store so you can get your workouts in and pick up some healthy food. If your hotel has a gym that is even better
choose a hotel room with a kitchenette so you can prepare your own meals
look at restaurant menus beforehand so you can pick the healthiest options
bring protein supplements, powdered vegetables, and homemade bars with you so you have healthy options no matter where you go
Staying on track while travelling can be challenging but some prep work before hand will help keep you focused and motivated!
Sometimes a plateau is reached in your training program after initial progress. This is due to your body being lighter and burning less energy with every activity you do. To get over this plateau either increase your activity, consume a little bit less food with each meal, or a combination of both. If you are trying to gain lean muscle mass then you need to consume more calories during each meal. Measure your progress often so you can adjust your plan and minimize the occurrence of these plateau’s!
