Gina Aliotti has assembled her top five tips for staying healthy while traveling for a contest. Gina knows because she did it for a number of years as one of the top IFBB Figure Pros. Check it out.
This week is designated to all those competing this weekend or anytime in the future.
Here are my Top 5 Contest Travel Tips:
1 – Pre-cook, pre-measure, wrap and freeze your lean protein to ensure they stay fresh and cold!
2 – If flying, be sure to carry on your essentials with you on the plan. (suit, heels, or anything you need to step on stage)
3 – If flying, be conscious of passengers and chose a “less smelly” protein option, if possible. (tip: slightly broiling your fish not only adds for great texture but takes away most of the smell)
4 – Beware, you cannot bring a jar of nut butter with you on the plane. You must check it since it is considered a liquid! The last thing you want is to throw away your nut butter so be sure to check it!
5 – Forgot your nuts… don’t think you can pick up a pack of nuts from the airplane or airport to replace yours! They are most likely loaded with sodium and not going to replace your no sodium kind!
Good luck to everyone competing at the USA’s and all other future shows!!
