Eating for Busy Professionals

Eating for Busy Professionals


I recently did a podcast that is from a speech I give to corporations both big and small to help educate their busy professionals on how they can become healthy.


I talk through the basics of healthy eating, prep, planning, hacks for social events, dinners, and happy hours.

You can also read over the outline here of what I dig into during this talk.


Make sure you guys subscribe to the podcast – give me a 5-star if you dig it and most important share it with friends and family ….trust me it can be a huge game changer for them.


And if you want me to come speak to your company and your team please reach out for the details .


  1. Be a pain, ask for substitutions – grilled and steamed options
  2. Pay attention to the wording on menus- Stick to dishes with the words “grilled,” “broiled,” “baked” or “steamed” and avoid the ones with “fried,” “breaded,” “smothered,” and “creamy.” If you are a fan of salads, skip the croutons and if you must have dressing always ask for it on the side.
  3. Plan – Prepare –Prep- Have some sort of small snack with you when traveling to avoid panicking and overeating from extreme hunger.
  4. Gas Station Living – Go with Water- Beef Jerky – Almonds – Fruit
  5. Drink more water than- At least .65 x your bodyweight per day
  6. Coffee is your friend- Be careful what you put in it!
  7. Research-Spend five minutes looking online at the menu before you go out to eat.
  8. Alcohol- Limit your intake when possible. If you do drink cut out sugary mixers. Avoid carbohydrates if possible when drinking.

Rule for drinking- for every drink- cut out 30g carbs and 7g of fat

  1. Avoid eating carbohydrates alone- This will cause you to feel hungry more often. Add protein or fat when eating carbs.
  2. Eat your Veggies! – Aim to take in at least five serving of vegetables per day when possible. This will help you feel full and give you the micronutrients your body needs to help you perform.
  3. Supplement Routine – Keep it as close to your normal schedule as possible – travel with your (micros-athletic greens) etc. – Pack the essentials always.
  4. SLEEP- On the road it’s tough to get enough rest but do your best to guard your sleep when possible, this will help you avoid overeating.

**- Meal timing doesn’t matter (unless you lose control) Eating one meal or six meals gets you to the same place. Look at your eating on a Daily or Weekly basis rather than meal by meal to stay on track.

Until next time eat well, train hard & be nice to people.
