|Tip 4: Avoid Fried Foods|
Tip #4. Avoid Fried Foods
While fast food restaurants are definitely convenient, with their low prices and quick service,
this convenience is not worth the inevitable weight gain brought on by the burgers and fries. When
you travel, keep this in mind: avoid fried foods. While this is always good advice to follow, it is
even more important to abide by while traveling. While traveling you are most likely to be burning
less calories each day than you would normally burn at home, and you are consuming more calories due
to your schedule of eating out. You are walking a fine line, and eating fried foods would throw you
right over the edge of weight gain. A gram of fat contains 9 calories as compared to the 4 calories
that proteins and carbohydrates carry, so you can see that consuming fried foods will drastically
increase your calorie intake. If I still haven't convinced you to pass on the French fries, keep in
mind that heartburn and indigestion are never fun, but how about experiencing them on an airplane,
bus, or train ride!
