It should come as no surprise that you need both a healthy diet and an effective workout plan to reach your health and wellness goals. As the old saying goes, “You can’t out-train a bad diet.” If you want to be healthy inside and out, you have to eat clean and train mean. Some people take this mantra very seriously, but even small lifestyle changes will go a long way. Use these tips to clean up your diet and step up your workouts:
What is eating clean? Eating clean involves not only choosing the right foods to eat but also avoiding junk foods and processed foods whenever possible. Try eating more plant foods like fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Also consider choosing grass-fed and free-range meats and poultry, fresh fish, low fat dairy products and raw nuts and seeds.

Staying healthy can be a challenge when your job consists of sitting in a truck for up to 12 hours per day. In fact, statistics from the National Institute of Health show that more than 50 percent of truck drivers are obese, compared to the national rate of 26.7 percent. TravelCenters of America/Petro (TA) recognized an opportunity to provide its customers with tools to battle this growing problem. That’s why they launched the StayFit program in 2010 to provide fitness facilities and healthy lifestyle programs, free of charge to TA rewards members.
