2. Pack a snack. Before hopping on a plane or starting a long drive, pack a few light snacks like raw vegetables or fresh fruit. These will curb your appetite and help you fight the temptation to indulge in less nutritious options. They’ll also be especially welcome if you encounter travel delays.
3. Buy fresh groceries upon your arrival. Wherever your destination, chances are there will be a grocery store nearby. Or, if you’re lucky, a Farmer’s Market.

Even if you are in a hotel room without a refrigerator, you can still keep bananas, grapes and more on hand.
4. Think of the big picture. If you don’t eat enough fruits and veggies at one meal, be sure they fill at least half your plate at the next. Similarly, if you overeat at one meal go light on the next. It takes an “extra�? 3,500 calories to gain 1 pound.
