Life on the Road with David Madow

Wow, it’s been over a month since I last posted a blog.  Time really does fly when you are having fun.  As you probably know, I travel a lot.  So of course I get asked all the time “Dave, how do you stay so fit and healthy being on the road so much?”  Well here are my answers.

I am always prepared. Airlines no longer feed you real food. What they generally offer are offer carb loaded snacks. And they charge an arm and a leg for them! So I pack my own. I always have fruit, nuts, and an energy bar in my carry on with me.  If it’s a longer flight, I make sure I have a healthy sandwich with me to make sure I keep up my eating routine.

I take my running shoes and workout clothes with me everywhere I go.  There is nothing like a sunrise walk around a new city, or a barefoot run on a sandy beach.

I make sure to find a good place for healthy Asian food where ever I am.  If the buffet is the only option, then I head for the salad bar and the carving station. I avoid the pasta bar and dessert area. And I am never tempted to go back for seconds. I can find healthy food almost anywhere.

I make sure I have plenty of bottled water with me at all times as well. I actually usually carry my own Nalgene bottle that I fill up at home.

Sure, life on the road can be a challenge, but it’s also a great way to experience this amazing country. If you always make food and exercise a priority, you will live a great healthy life!

Rock on!
