How to live the experience without losing site of wellness

Traveling to distance locations is an adventure, whether it is for pleasure, work or even study. However, when wandering about the world, we often indulge in unhealthy foods under the excuse that we are experiencing the culture or that the food is just” exotic”. We must be disciplined while enjoying ourselves to prevent any risk to our overall health.

Melissa’s advice on staying healthy while enjoying your travels.

Everything you need to optimize your health while traveling in the palm of your hand. Enhance fat burn, lose weight & boost energy naturally.

Exercise bands are lightweight and will not way down your luggage when traveling. It is a good idea to bring something in case there is no gym available.

Receiving a nutritional assessment by a certified FNTP before a long trip will help you plan and stay on track while traveling abroad. If you have any questions contact me directly.

Common questions about eating and maintaining health while traveling

Yes I do. I will usually go just a bit longer extending my fast so that I start eating around the same time in the new time zone but you can also please into it working to push back fuck push forward a few hours the first one to three days.

Keeping in mind that there will be a lot of new things to try, remember that just a bite or two is enough to give you experience without filling you up and making it so you can’t enjoy more. It’s been proven that we truly only enjoy the first couple of bites of anything anyway, so this way you get to try it all but also not overindulge.

I wish but unfortunately just a week I’ve really indulging set you back quite a bit and also can do quite a bit of damage to all the good you’ve done prior to your vacation. It comes down to a mindset I realized that you got to take joy and the people, the culture and the geography, Plus the local cuisine, but not do you think your best experiences enjoy is going to come from overdoing the eating. Most likely you will come home and feel bad about it and you shouldn’t feel bad about the wonderful trip that you were able to take with friends and/or family.
Yes. Do your homework beforehand and check to see if the water is safe to drink. Here in Mexico, I would always get filtered water but our home here has a fill Traciann system so I am able to drink it out of the tap. Unfortunately, I know too many people who have gotten food poisoning from eating things like ceviche or undercooked meat. If it is a taco stand, I would make sure to get everything cooked well but if it is a highly-rated restaurant, you are probably pretty safe.
I have never run into any place leaving the United States that has had issues with my supplements. The only place I get questioned is in USA airport and that is of course if I have liquids of more than 3 ounces in my bag or already opened powders.

If in your budget, I highly recommend business class as the meals are better quality and you can actually choose the kind that you want. Most international flights will give you two meals and I usually opt to just have one because studies have actually shown fasting during a flight is helpful for Jetlag.

Airport food is expensive so I always have snacks in my bag if I get really hungry during a layover but usually just make use of the time and walk around with maybe something to drink

I travel with my supplements and I wear my Oura ring to track sleep and steps. I have the BODi app on my iPad and I bring resistant bands.

I think it’s natural to feel a little “off” when traveling but too much caffeine can perpetuate the highs and lows. I would look into other alternatives like maybe a nootropic (natural herbs) that naturally help you feel awake and with it.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

P.S. I Love You – a 1991 book from H. Jackson Brown
“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.”
