Travel Tip

 

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!

Clients Love Ketogenic Lifestyle Coaching!

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!

After a year of committed keto, I needed a personalized plan to improve progress and healing. I hired a coach to help fine-tune my methods and immediately regretted waiting so long to hire one. Thanks to the coaching expertise of Elaina Wang, I am no longer stalled and have the confidence to properly fast which has improved healing for a couple of health issues.

I have the best coach ever!  Jessyca has helped me in so many ways!  Yesterday was a milestone! 50 pounds lost and the lowest I’ve weighed in seven years! I’m done from a size 1X to a size 10 in six months!  I’m not done with my keto journey yet, but oh the work I have had to put in. This has not been easy! At all! I have had to text Jessyca a zillion times with things that make me want to binge and fall off of the deep end. I’ve had to learn to deal with the reason I had become overweight in the first place and how not to go back to that place again. I've had to fight through feeling like a problem and also feeling 'less than', both feelings that cause me to binge. All of those contributed to who I was before. Our weekly phone calls are the highlight of my week! They deal with the 'why' I got this way and the behaviors that lead me down the path to that person I was. Now, though, I feel like my outside is beginning to match my inside, the person God made me, and that’s an amazing feeling! As for my goal, I’m getting closer to fitting into a dress for my sons wedding! With my understanding, inspirational and amazing coach’s help, I know I can do this! I thank God for Jessyca and for His work through her!

When I started this challenge I was so out of shape. I had gained back almost all the weight I had lost doing keto 2 years ago, and I was eating so much junk. I haven’t had sugar or junk of any kind in weeks! I’m still happy and proud of myself because I’m taking care of me again. I feel good, have more energy, I’m not needing a nap, I’m eating good healthy food, and exercising. Thank you so much Bronson for giving me this chance. Once we are done I’m going to keep eating this way and exercising.
