Hungry-drink water not pop just pure water.
Park your truck as far as you can from entrance of truck stop - you must walk a little more.
Start jumping over the rope and making push ups- it does not need more room and burning your fat.
Try avoid fast food.
Thanks for the tips, sergetret. I like the second one - Park your truck a little bit far from a truck stop so you can take a walk.

That's really cool pigpaw! Actually, there are simple exercises that truckers can do while sitting behind the wheel. Ref: http://www.reliancepartners.com/blog...-the-road.html
- Neck stretch: This reduces tension in the neck and head muscles. When you are at a traffic light, bow your head and hold for a few seconds, then slowly lean your head back and hold. Do this 10 times.
- Wrist Stretch – Extend your arm and the fingers against the steering wheel. Press your fingers against the wheel and hold for 10-15 seconds. Do this one at a time with each hand. This can help loosen your wrist and minimize conditions like carpal tunnel.
- Shoulder Shrug – With your hands on the steering wheel, raise your shoulders like trying to touch your ears. Hold the shrugged shoulders for a few seconds and slowly release down. Do this 10–20 times. This is an great exercise to reduce fatigue in your shoulders.
