I am going on a road trip this weekend (10 hours there and 10 back) and I am terrified of road trip munchies ruining my diet and up-ing my calories!

I need ideas of healthy (er?) road trip things to eat!

Gracias!

I frequently drive partway across Montana, two hours there and two hours back. Celery sticks, carrot sticks, dill pickles, and raisons are my preferred snacking foods. I especially like the dill pickles. Very few calories and yet they are crunchy and refreshing. They tend to be juicy, though, so watch the drips.

You could also look for some beef jerky or turkey jerky. They don't have to be kept cold and will have lots of protein to keep you from feeling hungry. Try to find some without a lot of high fructose corn syrup and other junk in them.

just pack meals of whatever you would eat at home for the road in a cooler. wraps are easier to eat than sandwiches and granola bars are easier than cereal.

I like also: snap peas, red bell peppers, pop chips (100 calorie bag), water, more water, whole wheat crackers, whatever fills you up -- stay satisfied, don't let yourself get too hungry, that's when the temptations are too easy to give in to.

Water and packing purposeful snacks in portion sizes (vs. big bags!).... but when it is time then to pee, stop at rest areas, not gas stations - far less temptations and room to go walk, stretch do a couple lunges, etc... and Audio books! they keep my mind off eating (just don't forget cruise control if the books are exciting!!)

POPCORN!!!!! Do some air-popped and put in baggies - lots of volume, little calories, lot of fiber! Smile

I totally agree with Ketomancer. I added it over the past month and no more problems. I dropped all the extra fiber, etc. Take one at noon and one with dinner.

Point noted. Thanks for the advice again. I ate a little extra carb rich food at the party but will now consciously eat more carb-free/low-carb food. thanks

Yes. When you get the FatSecret result, simply type over that with the one you want. Theirs is horribly generous and does not allow fast weight loss. Consider this one: http://caloriecount.about.com/... ...

thank you all for the compliments.... and yes, it was a choice. I felt a tinge of pity and guilt subjecting colleagues to consuming the donuts but I had to keep up the leaving do rituals.
