    So I am on my first business trip and I am in the middle of no-where, South Carolina. There are a few restaurants here but they are soooooo bad for you. Also I have to eat a terrible continental breakfast with no protein and all processed food, laden with sugar and flour.

    Is there anything I can do?

    I went to wal-mart, bought some Guiness, almonds, beef jerkey, protein bars and water. A lot of people stared at me buying the Guiness instead of budlight lol. Or maybe they were staring cuz they have no idea what I am and have never seen anyone not black or white.


    Anyway I am going to workout at my crappy hotel gym now and then going out for more unhealthy food.

    So anyone have helpful hints for a business traveler going to the middle of nowhere?


    Thanks

    You went to wal-mart and that was all you bought? Do you not have access to a microwave?

    You'd be better off eating at a restaurant than eating sodium-rich beef jerky.
    Get more variety of unsalted nuts, some steamable veggies in a bag (most hotels have nukers), and some fresh fruits.
    For your protein, the protein bars will suffice. Alternatively, go to a restaurant and order eggs only, or meat only.
    When they laugh, threaten to walk out without paying or tipping.
    I did just that twice and got away with it.

    With no nuker, get fresh veggies. They're healthier anyway.
