    Get hotel rooms with refrigerators, and bring your own healthy food, or buy it at the local store.

    Yeah, fast food places have healthier options. Even McD offers salads. Just go easy on the dressing. Burger King also has a grilled chicken sandwich. I believe it comes with lettuce and tomatoes. Just tell them to hold the mayo.

    I travel with some bars, dried fruit and nut mixes etc ( I hardly ever see stuff I want to eat at airports on in flight) - If money is not an issue you should be able to find good places that offer healthy meals - or are willing to do broiled/streamed foods and salads with lemon instead of dressing, egg white omelets - things like that. If I am staying at a place with a lot of crap in the mini bar I ask them to remove all thier junk food from my room before I arrive.

    Asian restaurants (southeast Asian). Not western Chinese or mayo Japanese.
    For transcontinental flights there is actually research that a fast will reduce jetlag.
    Buy a big bag of fruit for your hotel room if staying more than a couple of days.
    Unsalted nuts like everybody else said.

    oh but it's impossible . . . in a new city, with so many good restaurants? . . . why not have a nice lunch at Tosca in DC, for example, rather than being a puritan?

    Almost every restaurant cooks to order (i.e. steamed, sauce on the side), plus as mentioned before you can get a salad (just lose the dressing, breadcrumbs and cheese) at any fast food joint.

    Thanks a lot guys this is very helpful. I have been doing a lot of the salads while at fast food, Subway and overall just looking at the calories before ordering. I just didn't know if this was some sort of false hope because it is still considered fast food or what.
