Best Diet For Commercial Drivers
Spending almost the entire day on wheels, with little to no time to look after you health or exercise, it’s unsurprising that transportation is the most unhealthy industry in America.
While constantly sitting in the same position for long hours is a part of the job, stretching and exercising must be done daily to ensure proper health, the root of the issue lies in your daily diet.
By sticking to a correct diet plan, commercial drivers can avoid all the potential risks of obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes and even heart disease and stroke.
The following tips will help you attain the best diet.
Homemade foods & snacks is a major key to good health
Being short of time is no excuse. If you want to avoid major health issues, spending a few minutes to prepare your day’s lunch is worth the investment. Draw out a weekly meal plan well beforehand if you are out on the road for the entire week.
You would want to focus on foods that give you energy, rather than making you feel sleepy. So cut out on fries, burgers, donuts and other fast foods and eat more whole wheat items, salmon, bananas, spinach, beans and nutrient-packed salads instead.
Pickup fresh fruit
Part of the healthy lifestyle, is the hunt for healthy and fresh items, such as your favorite fresh fruit. Don’t worry about finding fresh fruits handy, but be conscious of prepackaged seedless fruits that are out of season.
Moreover, eating healthier snacks at frequent intervals is better than waiting for a long, elaborate meal as that makes you eat more than you really require.
Watch your beverages
Avoid drinking sodas and make sure you consume spring water or water with a ph balance of 7. Proper water intake helps keep your body functioning well.
Toxic friends and family!
As unconventional as it may sound, your friends, the people around you, the music you listen to and the shows you watch, are all a part of your diet as well. These factors affects your thinking, your mood and energy and, your choices is meals as well. Be mindful.
Being a trucker and eating a good diet can go hand in hand and is not so challenging after all.
