Travel brings some of life’s greatest experiences and rewards. We pack our bags and anticipate leaving home to enjoy new encounters, food, culture, people, and adventure. Let’s go!
Yet these same things can disrupt our routines in ways we’re sometimes unprepared for, throwing us off balance and causing us unwanted stress.
Digital nomads, remote workers, and other travelers often struggle with staying fit while on the road, ranging from not exercising, eating and drinking too much, gaining weight, and maintaining healthy habits overall.
Being excited to try lots of new food—local, traditional, and signature dishes and beverages—can lead to weight gain, quickly.
Not knowing how to make good food choices can be confusing and overwhelming, especially in cultures that have very different cuisines than yours.
Feeling like your food choices are limited because of intolerances, sensitivities, and not finding things you’re used to can be discouraging. Where are my veggies?!
When every night feels like a party in a new place, drinking too much alcohol can also cause weight gain. Reaching for caffeine and sugar to boost your energy can have consequences that affect more than your weight, such as poor food choices and food cravings (usually for more sugar, salt, fried, high-calorie things), dehydration, disrupted sleep, and brain fog. It's a vicious cycle.
Poor quality sleep and insomnia—whether from alcohol or different time zones—can lead to fatigue, which can trigger constipation, dehydration, and sugar cravings—all of which contribute to weight gain.
Keeping up with your workouts can be hard without your regular gym routine or fitness buddies AND when exciting events in your new destination distract you AND when you're fatigued from not sleeping. Any one of these can leave you feeling unmotivated and maybe even giving up on exercise altogether.

These situations can add anxiety to otherwise highly enjoyable experiences. I know, I’ve been there. Insomnia, fatigue, constipation, and weight gain used to upset my travels.
Now as a wellness entrepreneur, I’ve found a whole different way to travel and maintain my health, fitness, and overall wellbeing. I never have unwanted downtime due to poor physical conditions and I’ve accomplished things I never imagined, like the time I left home to travel and live in 12 countries in 12 months discovering effective health and wellness modalities globally. Now I love what I get to do.
I help digital nomads make the most of their travels AND optimize their health so they can enjoy food and culture—without going off the rails or feeling guilty or depriving themselves—and stay fit and keep the weight off while enjoying life.
