Stay Fit Out There

Staying Fit on the Road

Exercise: Walking around your truck and trailer 32 times is considered a mile.

Food: Being on the road makes it hard for the drivers to make healthy lifestyle changes sometimes but below is a list of some options that are less than 400 calories:

  • McDonald's – Premium Grilled Chicken Classic Sandwich (350 calories, 9 grams of fat)
  • Subway – Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki 6" Sub (370 calories, 4.5 grams of fat)
  • Burger King – Whopper Jr. (350 calories, 21 grams of fat)

Some general fast food rules to live by: Avoid fried sides, such as fries or onion rings. Don't drink your calories; forego milkshakes, sugary coffee drinks, and soda. Beware of adding calories when you get condiments. Adding that extra BBQ sauce can add a bunch of hidden calories to your meal.
