The Poor Health Of Our Over The Road Truck Drivers

This subject has been disturbing to me for years. In 1992 I became a bus driver for Greyhound. I’m not comparing the two, but it gave me a good look at the lifestyle of driving a truck for a living. Then just 2 years ago my husband and I both tried the field ourselves. We didn’t make it through the school, but it gave us a whole new respect for those out there living this lifestyle!

Think about it. Have you ever been to a <a class=”zem_slink” title=”Truck stop” href=”Trucking Information” rel=”wikipedia” target=”_blank”>truck stop? What kind of food do they serve there? I know recently the truck stops have been a little more health conscious then previously, but the majority served is still grease laden pizza and fried foods! So because of the low energy diet they consume, they are forced to load up on caffeine and other stimulants to be able to get through their 11 hours shifts without falling asleep! And these people only get home for a home cooked meal every few days or weeks sometimes!

The people behind the wheel of those <a class=”zem_slink” title=”Semi-trailer truck” href=”Trucking Information” rel=”wikipedia” target=”_blank”>big rigs are the most likely people to suffer heart problems and diabetes just because of the occupation they have chosen!

I want so much to let every one of them know that I HAVE AN ANSWER! I mean do you ever get to the point where you just want to save the world from one problem at a time?These are clinically proven nutritionally balanced and complete meal replacements that actually keep your insulin from peeking and your blood sugar from dropping, thereby creating an even flow of energy without cravings or hunger! They are easy to prepare and can actually allow the driver to stay on the road more without have to stop for something to eat! These balance with a healthy low-fat lean meat option and vegetable choice once a day and plenty of water, can make for a healthier, thinner and more naturally energetic driver!

Well here is a shot at bringing health to those strong enough and brave enough to handle that job. I write this with love and respect for what you do and an earnest heart-felt desire to help! If you know of anyone in this situation, please pass this on to them. Together, let’s get America healthy.I mean I wouldn’t want to be the one driving the car next to that big rig when the driver is having a heart attack… would you?

Blessings to all of you… and thank you for what you do!
