This is a great thread. I'm wondering if anyone else has suggestions. I have two trips coming up (1 week in Oregon followed by 3 days in Philadelphia) and want to plan to pack some food to bring with me to help me stay on track. Almonds and bars are a good start, what are some of your other essentials? What do you do to plan so that you stay on track on the road. My work is 50-75% travel, so I don't have the option of continuing to gain on the trip and then try to lose the weight when I'm back.

I almost always have Larabars and single-serving packages of raw almonds with me, so I don't have any excuse to resort to junk. Instant oatmeal combined with a pack of nuts is a decent breakfast. I'll often throw some fruit in my suitcase too - oranges pack well.

I have found that the Special K Nourish oatmeal, with quinoa and some nuts, has been a God-send! I can use either a microwave in the room or the coffee maker for hot water. It's lightweight to pack and very filling. It keeps me away from the continental breakfast and gives me a good start to making healthy food choices. And I usually have a caramel Greek yogurt at night for dessert. That way I am not tempted to have a more high calorie dessert at dinner.

I'm heading from PDX to DFW for a couple days next week. Confirmed the hotel has at least one elliptical....hoping the fitness room isn't too scary!! lol If nothing else, I'll have my laptop and can do a SparkPeople video or two. I normally workout in the morning, so that's the plan for Monday. Thinking with the time change, workout will be Tues night, & I'm still trying to figure out Wed; either it will be when I get home that night or make sure to walk extra at a brisk pace in the airport, lol?! Also packing some smart snacks and my empty water bottle.

God made me and He doesn't make junk.

Not sure which is worse a long trip or a short one. Discovered that it takes about three days to recover from a trip - water weight due to salt, etc. Good news was that the trip to MT was OK - lost during the trip. Now for a quick out and back to LA - trying to plan. Will have my snacks. But it means - airports for dinner on Wednesday and Friday night (with grumpy people - hate traveling late on Friday).

New Orleans is tough. I work a project there for 5 months. I am the only person I kow that gained weight before their wedding.

I would definitely pick my splurges ahead of time. Every time you see those tables of junk food, ask yourself , "is better than the bananas foster at the palace cafe?" (My NOLA fave)

I always pack my snacks when I travel. I like the 100 cal packs of almonds. I mix them with freaaze dried apples when I can't get my hands on the real thing.

Plan your exercise. It is probably hot and humid already. Excercise in the AM if you can.

Next week I am in New Orleans - which means lots of good food. So I am doing some pre planning. I am taking some snacks (to stay away from the "contential breakfast bar" at the conference - although - croisants are a killer for me - so will be doing some pre-research). Also will be looking for a go to serving size and food - chicken/sausage gumbo and salads - to help with those evening meals. Bread is going to be a killer - but I am planning a "foodie" lunch - with a long walk to the resturaunt and back to the hotel. Hopefully, it will help me stay on track. Other suggestions?
