Business Travel is much different than pleasure travel for many reasons, including that for those of us that do it, it’s a regular occurrence. Instead of a one or two week splurge a year, it’s on going. Maybe you can do whatever you want, eat whatever you want, etc. for a week or two but you shouldn’t during business travel as you will get fat. Here are three things that will get you fat during travel.
1) Hey, you are traveling, so eat what ever you want. There is probably no kitchen or pantry handy, so you’d better fill up so you don’t get hungry later. Breakfast buffets are fast and convenient, and can be a couple thousand calories especially if you love bacon, eggs, and sausage. Have hearty lunch as dinner may be late. And at dinner, do not forget dessert. Hey, it’s probably paid for by the company and free, right?
2) Business travel is not as wonderful as people think as you have no time to do much of anything. Often it’s meeting all day and night. You can let any exercise or activity go. Most all hotels have an exercise room, perhaps a pool too, and often maps of nearby running routes, but you’ll probably skip those. It’s so easy when travel to do no exercise at all. On a night off, instead of hitting the exercise room or taking a walk, why not just sit at the bar? Which takes us to number 3.
3) Alcohol has calories and drinking a few every night can really pack on the weight. But it’s so easy to drink when traveling. At dinner every night we are asked if we want a drink, and then another and another etc. We may be having dining meetings where everyone is drinking, where wine is served, and we probably can’t even walk to elevator to get to our room without walking by an inviting lobby bar. And the bar may have free appetizers right after work making it more tempting!
I travel for business, sometimes a lot, and I’m a big guy. I try not to get fat during travel, although I may relax a bit from my normal food, drink, and activity regiment. I try to eat somewhat healthily, knowing it won’t be the same as home. Some exercise is essential and I aim for once a week on the road and often make 3 or 4 times. And I try to moderate drinking, although I do drink more than when at home. You do not have to get fat when traveling, but it is easy!
I write a lot when traveling and it helps me cut down on eating and drinking a bit. See some of my other articles at Scooby Doo Halloween Costume [http://scoobydoohalloweencostume.org/] and Fred Costume [http://scoobydoohalloweencostume.org/fred.htm].
