Healthy travel tips

Hotels like the Hard Rock in Chicago offer fitness centers for those who travel and want to maintain healthy habits

Researchers at Columbia University say that if you travel more than two weeks per month you are at risk for weight gain. Healthy business travel is easier than you think. These healthy travel tips and habits from social influencer and healthy TV host Hope Bertram can help:

1. Do your research ahead of time. Learn if your hotel has a fitness center, the added costs and if the hours will accommodate your schedule.

2. Find healthy restaurants nearby. “Oftentimes before I leave for a trip I will Google ‘healthy restaurant’ near the destination I’m going to,” says Bertram.

3. Travel with healthy snacks. Throw a couple healthy items, like peanut butter packets and an apple, in your bag before you leave.

4. Incorporate walking into your agenda. Bertram suggests staying at a hotel within walking distance of the conference you’re attending or requesting a room far away from the elevators.

“I gained 40 pounds being a busy business woman and not paying attention to my health and fitness,” says Bertram. “I have since lost 20 pounds through learning and incorporating healthy habits while traveling.”
