The simplest answer to that question is yes. And most importantly, that people and drivers are aware of this.
Drivers are under immense pressure and time constraints within their day-to-day jobs to deliver on time, with minimal issues. But by law, drivers are only allowed on the road for certain periods of time meaning regular breaks are an essential part of the job.
Motorway services have a wealth of fast-food restaurants, but the issue we currently face with drivers eating habits is not necessarily taking the fast-food option, more drivers take no option and skip meals.
As we see drivers eating just once or twice per day, while eating the wrong types of foods, it is easy to see the problem. A driver who consumes just 1,500 calories, but lives off of coffee and caffeinated soda or energy drinks, snacks on sugary treats, then finishes the day by eating a large 1,000-calorie meal of pasta, fries, bread, and a little dessert, has a slower metabolism and produces far more insulin than a driver who consumes 2,200 calories made up of four separate 550-calorie meals/snacks that are filled with healthy fats, lean protein, and modest amounts of carbohydrates.
Its important drivers are maintaining good eating habits to sustain a healthy and balanced diet, this will help with concentration whilst driving, also supplying your food with the right amount of nutrients and giving your body the energy, it needs to complete a physically and mentally difficult job.
