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!

After 1 month of struggling with when, what and how to eat ketogenically, I realized I needed help. I saw on one of the Keto FB pages that coaching was available. So I checked it out, chose a coach whose story resonated with me. That was Sabrina Rivers-Williams. One of the best decisions I've ever made!!

Ketogenic Lifestyle Coaching has changed my life. This is not something I say lightly. I went from prediabetic, obese, and frustrated from 40 years of failed diets and “I will start on this new diet on Monday” to normal weight, perfect blood glucose, amazing energy, and some bonuses like my allergies are gone, my skin looks 15 years younger, and chronic digestive issues are a thing of the past. More importantly, with the support of my coach I have stopped dieting and started living!

Thank you Sabrina for helping me to get on and stay on track. Thanks for being accessible in my time of need. Thank you for helping me burst through plateaus!

I want to stick to the keto woe. My coach is my sounding board when I have questions, concerns, trouble or just support. It's different from familial support because she's been there & knows what you're going through. I always spend on everyone else but never on myself. Well this is my "gift to self."

I came to coaching after being Zero Carb for close to 2 years (which I began to heal a brain injury.) I am well versed in nutrition but something was amiss with my body and my ability to lose weight. Hiring Mary was my missing link. Mary was able to break down what I was doing correctly and what needed to change in order to reach my goals. Not only was she supportive with my ketogenic diet, she went above and beyond researching alternative ideas in order to help my healing. The knowledge sharing with this program is invaluable whether you are on track, stuck or simply questioning how you are doing. It’s worth every penny.
