Here's a little tip for travelers.
Over the last 10 days, I flew across 14 time zones (7 time zones for each flight) ... 17 hours flying time from Sydney to Dallas and then another 17 hours back again 10 days later. I've done a LOT of long-haul flights over the years, and usually jetlag and swelling just go hand in hand with them, as any of you who have experienced a long haul flight would know.
This time, zero jetlag, zero swelling, in both directions. How is this possible?
I did a shortish flight about a year ago and did a little experiment by fasting for a few hours prior to the flight and also while I was on board. Jetlag on this flight would have been minimal anyway (only crossing 3 time zones), but i was surprised to see that my jetlag was nil, and also that my swelling wasn't impacted like it usually was. (I have lymphedema, so it doesn't take much at all for things to get out of control with the swelling.)
So for this trip, I decided to fast for 24 hours prior to departure, and also for the duration of the flight - 41 hours in total. And when I say fast, I mean water and salt only. On the return leg, I fasted for 28 hours in total.
It wasn't hard at all and the results are pretty astounding. You might like to give it a try for your next long-haul if you don't want your life to slow down or stop at your destination because of jetlag and swelling!
Whether part of a limited time group or continuing month-to-month coaching, our coaching clients have great things to say about their coaching experiences!
Today is my 8 week keto anniversary! Down 14.5lbs, many inches down especially 2 inches in the waist. Made it through Thanksgiving easily. Didn’t miss anything I used to eat. Couldn’t have done it without my coach, Sabrina.
I want to send a big THANK YOU to my coach Lisa Carroll! I have been working with Lisa for almost 3 weeks and WOW! I am absolutely amazed by the progress I have seen in this short time. I have lost 15.4 pounds, stopped taking medication for GERD, seen a significant reduction in hair loss and now fit in a pair of jeans I haven’t worn in 11 years. I started Keto last year about this time on my own and did great for the first few months, but then I got lazy and slacked off. I tried multiple times to start up again on my own without success and finally made the decision that I needed someone to help hold me accountable, that’s where Lisa comes in. She has been exactly what I needed to get myself back on track!
I enlisted Elaina’s help with a macro evaluation and then with email coaching. What a wealth of knowledge! She helped me to understand that I was insulin resistant, which was causing me to lose weight slowly. She also suggested that I stop ALL sweeteners, including diet drinks so that my body wouldn’t elicit an insulin response. The result? I started losing weight again!
She also told me not to compare my journey with other folks’ journey because we are all different; that was a huge piece of encouragement for me.
As hard as it may seem, you can do it! Jessyca Reynolds helped me get to my goal of losing 100lbs for my sisters wedding by last month. Trust the process. You can do it!
Group coaching helps you not feel alone in your keto journey. I started out with one on one coaching and it was extremely beneficial, but I feel like I am learning even more from group coaching. It's great to hear the things others are going through and help provide support while learning how to navigate a situation like that in the future, and of course to have others there to celebrate in your successes! I plan to utilize the coaching services until I reach my goals. I don't think I would be moving in such a positive direction without coaching.
