Medifast When Traveling

by on Feb.01, 2010, under Workout Logs

I thought it would be hard to stay on plan while I was traveling, but, it wasn’t bad at all.  I did have a couple of “gotcha”s with some poor restaurant choices, but, it really wasn’t that hard.

First, I noticed that the following foods travel well:

  • Bars
  • Puffs – If you keep them in their original box.
  • Soups
  • Shakes
  • Puddings

I’m sure other things also travel well, but that’s all I brought.  I bought a soup thermos bowl, and it was great for taking soup to the office.  I would pre-make the soup, get it really hot, then close it up.  It did not last till lunch (I got to the office around 7:00AM), but it was great for a morning snack.  (Or, I could have heated it up a bit again at the office)

Shakes were also easy at my office.  Shaker cups travel well, then I just added water from the cooler, and shook it up.

At home, I mix puddings with my wife’s milk frother.  It works great.  I’ve never been able to mix pudding fast enough with a fork or whisk.  So, I tried buying a little cheap immersion blender.  It also did not work very well.  So, pudding was the worst thing for me.  (But, it would be bad at home too, without the magic frother.)

Finally, flights were also easy.  I just packed a few bars and snacks.  In a nutshell, I was surprised how easy it was to travel on MF.  The toughest choice was where to have my lean and green, and the MF forums had plenty of suggestions for that.
