Want To Avoid Jet Lag? Just Skip A Few Meals!

Boston (ChattahBox) - Researchers have found that the best way to avoid jet lag and adjust to changes in time zones is to starve yourself, skipping a few meals before your flight.
The study was conducted on mice and found that you can reduce the impact of jet lag by fasting for a period of 16 hours before a flight.

This allows your internal clock to better adjust to changes in time zones you experiencen while flying.

Researchers stated this could be a way to deal with jet lag for people who fly often. They did state though that it does not completely erase jet lag, it only helps control it.
The study was published in the May 23 issue of the journal Science.
