Shock And Awe!

I often bump into Drivers I haven’t seen in a while. Once they get over the initial shock of my weight loss they usually follow up with one or all three of these questions:

  • How did you do it?
  • What diet plan are you on?
  • How do you find time to exercise on the road?

First off, I say that first question is a long answer but a person basically needs to eat healthy and exercise. To start, cut down on breads, pop, chips, pastry, any foods with long shelf life. I say “the longer the shelf life, the shorter your life is”.

I am a professional Driver, not a doctor, but here are some tips that worked for me:

  • Reading fitness and health books were very important and I would encourage you to read as much as possible – “positive in…positive out”.
  • Not eating heavily within 1 hour before bed was also a key for me.
  • You must find time to exercise. Make no excuses. Tell yourself every morning what you are going to do and do it. As a professional Driver, it is easy to convince ourselves that we have no choice other than an unhealthy lifestyle.

I assure you that you can make positive choices to improve your diet and activity levels, and if you do those two things you will see positive changes. Go for a short walk while waiting for a load, eat a salad instead of a burger and eat a handful of almonds instead of a chocolate bar. It all adds up!
