Many people around the country are making the commitment to eat healthier. They are shopping organically, cutting out sugars and loading up on the fruits and veggies. Getting a healthy eating routine started at home and work is easy and will help you lose a lot of unwanted pounds. The first major obstacle in a healthy diet is traveling.

Although it’s most likely possible to make a decent Cesar salad out of your briefcase, most travelers aren’t going to go to these extremes. Unless you are visiting friends and family, all of your meals are going to be at a restaurant or cafe, making it hard for even the most dedicated people to stay true to their diets.
