I rather have a few rough days :)

We have to agree though that fasting for 16 hours would be incredible tough!

I’ve flown from Chicago to London several times and I usually arrive in the early morning even though my body thinks it’s in the wee hours of the morning. I make myself get some coffee and fruit and continue my day as normal. I make myself have a normal day and just go to sleep a little bit earlier. I will say that it’s typically more difficult for me coming back to the States, but I follow the same rules. Sleep at night, stay awake during the day.

I actually kinda like the jet lag coming to the states (I live in Europe), its something about those early mornings. Coming back however… I think eating and drinking light while you travel and trying to adjust to your new time zone as soon as possible is just the best way to go.

And then the first thing I want when I get to where I’m going is a decent cup of tea or coffee, so by the time I have a real meal it’s probably been close to 24 hours since my last one. This is also why my eating schedule is always so erratic when I’m travelling…but I sleep really well at night!

I just flew from Abu Dhabi, UAE to Salt Lake City, UT with my toddler and 8 month old. That is a 10 hour difference. We are 6 days into jet lag and still struggling but I don;t know how fasting with be possible for the children (or me. since I’m breast feeding I am so hungry).

Traveling (espeically with kids) and being in a bad mood seems worse than jet lag to me.

I never really thought about that somehow helping with jet lag, but I haven’t suffered from jet lag in over a decade and we travel all the time!

I spent three months commuting between London and Western North America (would fly over, be there for 1.5 weeks, fly home for long weekend and then back again) and I didn’t really get jet lagged at all. I always ate before I left and no naps midday and did just fine sleeping on the changing schedule.

Seems like sleep would be key. If I ate a huge meal with lots of protein and slept some it would be easier.

Now I just need a trip somewhere to test it out!

When my husband and I were dating, I traveled to England (where he was studying) to meet up with him. I had 5 days and already an experienced overseas traveler, I didn’t want to endure jet lag for days. I did try the food/fast thing and it worked pretty well. I wasn’t up at until strange hours. Although, I have found that Whole Food “Restful Sleep” if you take the full dose is also equally effective for jet lag. But yes, if you’re not in the situation for a lot of valeraian and other herbs, this works pretty well.

What would be worse for me on a trip: fasting or jet lag? I think I’d definitely take jet lag over fasting. I love to eat! :)

Cheers,
Kristina

The trick was to have a big meal right before getting on the plane (and maybe a cocktail!) and then sleep for a good chunk of time. Fasting for that long seems like a lot, but most of us go at least 12 hours between dinner and breakfast. Sleeping is key.

I’m about to test the plan out again on a trip to China.

I’m nursing a baby right now and get so lightheaded after just a couple of hours without food, I don’t think I could do 16.
