The Great American Trucking Show is over for another year and the excitement of this great annual event, done. For me, this year’s event was personally gratifying. For the first time, I was a featured speaker in the Health Pavilion. Thanks to Rick Ash of Trucking Solutions Group and Randall-Reilly for inviting me to participate in this year’s event. I had a great time.

Another Year at GATS

This year’s show was very special for me. I was given the opportunity to participate in the Health Pavilion as a nutritionist in the trucking industry and share my knowledge with all of the wonderful people who heard me speak. I gave two talks, one about controlling Type 2 Diabetes with diet and another about losing your job due to government regulations on the health of CDL permit holders. Afterward, I opened it up for questions so people could ask me about the ketogenic lifestyle and all it has to offer.

I have had the privilege of attending the Great American Trucking Show for the last few years. I am amazed at the growth of the Health Pavilion since its beginning just a few short years ago. It’s a testament to the hard work and dedication of the people who have worked to make it a reality. Along the way, they have raised awareness for health problems among truck drivers and given truckers valuable tools to live healthier on the road.

Each booth in the pavilion offers something useful for the health of the trucking community

This year, nurses were on hand to take blood pressure, give back massages and offer lotion to alleviate joint pain. Women truckers received free mammograms. A DOT-certified physician gave free physicals so drivers could update their DOT medical cards. And there were a host of healthy giveaways too numerous to count.

The rest of the Great American Trucking Show was just as fabulous

Down on the main floor next to the Pride and Polish Truck area was my team at the Drive My Way booth hard at work. Truck drivers spun the wheel for a snack of some sort. (Too bad none of the snacks were ketogenic. I need to talk to them about that.) I hope to see all of you there next year, with healthy snacks and all.
