Don’t get caught Driving while hungry, DWH. We are constantly on the go which is hard on a diet because fast food is everywhere it’s fast, easy and cheap. “Don’t put $1 food in a million-dollar body, ” John Sally once said. To keep you on track, here are a few easy tips that you can do so you won’t get caught driving hungry.
Eat before you leave – When you leave home make sure you eat something, never leave home with an empty tummy to go run errands. If you go grocery shopping on an empty stomach you will surely buy more food than you intended. Just driving down the street is dangerous if you are hungry. DWH means every fast food restaurant/signage is taunting you. When you have food in your belly those billboards don’t pop out and wave you down.
Drink water – Keep water at hand. I know some people say that leaving water bottles in a car is bad for you. I say, I would rather have a “bad” water bottle than a bad mega burger. (you know if you are going to eat out you are going to go big, because you are hungry). A lot of the time we think we are hungry when we are just thirsty. Sip on a water bottle while you are driving. It will keep you hydrated and on track for drinking your 8 glasses of water a day! In all reality, when you leave for those errands make it a habit to have water with you. Grab your purse, keys and water.
Pack Snacks – Just like you have those water bottles in the car, have an emergency protein bar in the glove compartment. Keep on hand some nuts, crackers even raisins. I know it sounds weird but trust me, that emergency stash will save your diet. You must eat every 3 hours and sometimes those errands take longer than we expected and here we are DWH. Those fast food restaurants are all in your face again. Keep calm and reach for your snack.
These simple 3 tips can stop you from a DWH incident. Go full speed ahead, and feel confident you will not fall for those fast, easy and cheap restaurants. You are in the driver’s seat with your diet.
