What is your name and occupation?
My name is Daniel Feiman and I am a consultant and trainer.
How often do you travel and how long have you been a frequent traveler?
I travel internationally 6-9 times per year and domestically an equal amount. I have been doing so for 15 years.
Staying lean while traveling can be a challenge. What are your top challenges to maintaining your weight while traveling?
The lack of access to quality food; the lack of time and/or facilities to exercise; time changes & packed schedules.
What are your top three tips for staying lean while traveling?
1. Plan ahead for eating
2. SCHEDULE exercise
3. Portion control
How do you ensure you fit in exercise when traveling?
Schedule it in my calendar; catch up on Podcasts & make it a habit, like brushing my teeth.
How do your healthy travel habits differ from when you are at home?
The secret is trying to not let that happen. Like so many other things in life this is a choice. I try to stay as close to my normal routine as possible even though I am not at home. It actually makes the travel easier and I feel better.
