Road Warriors

Special Offer

Being off-site and away from home for weeks at a time doesn't mean your health has to go off the rails.

SMART FOOD: When your brain is working overtime, your body is, too. Supplement with vitamins, probiotics, and enzymes to give your system the support it needs to keep up. "Type A personalities aren't relaxing and enjoying their food," explains Goodman. "They are eating really fast, which wreaks havoc on digestion." She recommends a daily probiotic such as Dr. Ohhira or Culturelle, along with raw enzymes and a multivitamin, both available in age-group-specific women's formulas from Garden of Life.

NO-EXCUSES EXERCISE: When you tire of staring at yourself on your hotel gym elliptical, sign up for fitist.com. Purchase a package on the site and gain access to classes at any of their handpicked network of boutique fitness studios, and to services provided by vetted spas, massage therapists, and health and wellness experts. Currently available in New York City and Los Angeles, service expansion into additional cities is underway.

GO LOW-CARB: Lunch meetings, cocktail parties, and business dinners leave little room for menu negotiation, but navigating the plate is easy according to personal trainer Patrick Murphy: "Eat smaller portions with less dense carbohydrates, and always say, 'light on the oil'—that can save you hundreds of calories." Murphy also recommends going for the protein on your plate first. "Save your carbohydrates for the end of the meal, when you've already slowed the absorption process down, and you'll avoid a spiking blood-sugar level, which leads to fat gains."
