Doctor's Orders: Plan Ahead!

Sometimes work hours, school schedules, or travel can disrupt your diet. Eliminate nutritional backsliding by planning ahead!

Preparing meals the night before, utilizing Tupperware and carrying meal-replacement powders, RTDs, or protein bars with you are just a few simple tricks to help you fulfill your nutritional requirements, no matter what your circumstances demand.

Many experienced athletes cook a week's worth of meals in one night, so that they'll be ready to rock 'n' roll when time gets tight.

Preparing meals the night before, utilizing Tupperware and carrying meal-replacement powders, RTDs, or protein bars with you are just a few simple tricks to help you fulfill your nutritional requirements, no matter what your circumstances demand.
"Preparing meals the night before, utilizing Tupperware and carrying meal-replacement powders, RTDs, or protein bars, can help you fulfill your nutritional requirements."

Freezers, canned foods, microwaves, plastic storage bags, pre-mixed supplements—these are all tools to keep you stocked with mighty meals when you're on the go.

Active Rest

Remember that every rest day should be an active rest day. Rest days are for recovery; they're not an excuse to be lazy. Get out and hit 15-30 minutes of HIIT cardio today, or perform 30-60 minutes of your favorite activity: hiking, biking, walking, playing a sport, etc.
