Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.


Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

At the top of TT, there is a white box with "Search" in it. Type in "cooking" or "food" on truck and read the results. That will give you an idea.

WHEN you get trained, go out on the road, THEN ask specific questions that's applicable to the truck you are assigned. Until then, there's enough differences between trucks, that it's a moot point.

High protein, low carb diet (Keto). You definitely want to limit your carb intake, bread, pasta, potatoes, rice, sugar, ETC... Those carbs will turn to fat for storage unless your burning them. On a high protein, low carb diet your body will burn fat for energy instead of storing it.

I just went on that semi Keto diet a few weeks ago before my foot surgery knowing I wouldn’t be getting any exercise for awhile. I just wanted to maintain my current weight through recovery and actually lost 15 lbs
