XLR8 on the road

If you spend a large time on the road (eg truck driver) and you are spending many nights away from home, lack any cooking appliances staying on XLR8 and eating low carb can appear to be hard.

Most truckie stops are full of fried greasy food, but if you look closer there is so much low carb food you can have you just must make a couple of changes.

The quickest and easiest foods that are the most convenient and cheapest options for truck drivers are unfortunately the least healthiest foods anyone can eat.

These foods are packed with carbohydrates, when these come from sugar, white flour and other ingredients that are nutritionally lacking, cause your insulin levels to spike. You get a rush of energy followed by a crashing feeling that makes you want to pull over and take a nap.  Complex carbs from vegetables are also an important form of energy. 

Now as for protein this is the longest lasting form of energy. When you eat protein rich foods these take longer to digest, which means you feel fuller longer. You aren’t going to want to indulge in simple carbs, like candy bars or cupcakes, because you won’t be hungry. 

So, when eating we want to look for protein foods with vegetables and salads.  What can you eat when on the road.

Have a breakfast of bacon and eggs and have your XLR8 ONE BURN Protein Shake for lunch instead
