Visitor Question:

I need some suggestions and TIPS for accomplishing the goal of eating low-glycemically while I am on the road for hours a day. If the goal is to eat every 3 hours or so how do you accomplish this easily and without failing?

Lifetime Fat Loss Answers:

Hi Marny,

Luckily the low glycemic snacks are easy to transport! You do have to plan ahead and think about enough food for 10 snacks a week when you grocery shop on the weekend. If you can also buy those freezer cold packs and get a small ice chest you can add to the variety of snacks you take. Make sure that you have the small wax paper or plastic bags to put food in.

Buy raw, unsalted nuts that you like, almonds or walnuts are good. Seven raw nuts per snack is perfect. Add a piece of fresh fruit (no bananas or watermelon) and a small thermos of low fat milk, unsweetened soy or chocolate almond milk. A different snack could be 3 celery sticks with a tablespoon of peanut or almond butter with no preservatives (high glycemic.) This would take the place of the nuts.

If you have the ice chest you can take 6 oz. of plain yogurt sweetened with low glycemic sweetener like agave syrup and a heaping T. of frozen berries. You can also keep a fruit smoothie cold in the ice chest. Look at our fruit smoothie recipes for a variety of low glycemic smoothies.

One last idea for the ice chest is an ounce of cheese, fresh fruit or raw carrot sticks, cucumber slices or celery and 2 whole grain crackers. You could take some low fat milk or the unsweetened almond or soy milk to go with this one.

Thinking ahead is key here! It's not hard to eat from the low glycemic food list on the run. You just need to be stocked up on low glycemic snack foods and have the containers, bags and freezer packs and you are good to go!
