Staying fit while traveling

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Kristen Wilkins, Fitness Trainer and creator of BODYNVFIT4LIFE, visited WBTV News Saturday Morning to talk about staying fit while traveling. Whether for business or pleasure, it is important to keep your health in mind while on the road.

Her advice follows. If you'd like to reach out to Kristen and learn more about her fitness classes, click here.

If you're staying in a hotel, these are the best choices when eating from the complimentary breakfasts that most hotels offer:

Yogurt

Apple

Oatmeal

Eggs

Banana

PB

**stay away from bagels, donuts, waffles, sugary cereals, sausage, bacon, sugary fruit bars

How to stay healthy when traveling:

Instead of eating out, what I like to do is create a simple meal plan out of foods that I can pick up at a local grocery store and that don't require cooking or preparation.

Here are some of my favorite choices:

Greek yogurt Protein powder Rotisserie chicken Low-sodium lean deli meat Low-fat cottage cheese Almonds and almond butter Fruit Salad (buy salad dressing and packaged greens). When you book your hotel, make sure you ask about the mini-fridge. The bigger the better.

Then, when you arrive at your destination, you simply head to the grocery store, pick up your food, throw it in the fridge, and you're good to go. Keeping it simple will help you stay on track & will also save you money that eating out will not.
