Health Tip: Watch Portion Sizes While Traveling

Controlling portion sizes is essential for controlling calorie consumption. But that can be difficult when you’re on the road.

The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases recommends:

  • Fill a small cooler with healthy travel snacks, such as cut vegetables and fruit, bottled water and low- or no-fat yogurt.
  • Pack small, individual portions of dried fruit, seeds and nuts.
  • When you stop for food, look for a restaurant with healthier fare, such as salads, grilled or steamed entrees or vegetables.
  • Skip soft drinks in favor of low- or no-fat milk.
  • When you indulge in a higher-fat food, such as fries or pizza, order a smaller size.
