The biggest challege for most travelling amateur bodybuilders is nutrition. The pros have traveling entourages of chefs and nutritionists, not us. When you do intense travel workouts like I will illustrate in next months video, you need protein 3-6 times a day and that is really tough while traveling. Take breakfast for example, you need your 25-35g protein. If you are at a restaurant, you typically only have fatty, salty breakfast meats or eggs. Although some restaurants will make you an egg white omelet with 9 egg whites, very few will. To get your 25-35g protein typically requires consuming 800-1000 calories because of the extremely high fat content. We definitely dont want to get FAT just to get enough protein. What to do??? Easy! Remember that protein powder I told you to pack in part 1 of my "Keeping fit while traveling" video? What we need to do is at every meal, whether it be a family gathering or a restaurant meal, is to take our 30g protein mixed in water before the meal and then the meal, eat our low fat, high fiber, vitamin rich foods: steamed veggies, complex carbs, fruits. This way the two combine to make a perfect meal without making an ugly scene at a restaurant or family gathering trying to get a bodybuilders meal. Alles Klar?
Attached is a photo of my breakfast this morning. The only protein at breakfast was nasty sausage patties so I loaded up on veggies and fruit for my vitimins, fiber, and carbs then had my scoop of protein powder
