Anti-Jet-Lag Diet — add one
The Anti-Jet-Lag Diet has helped hundreds of thousands of travelers avoid jet lag over
the last 20 years.
Research shows that travelers who use the Anti-Jet-Lag Diet are seven times less likely to
experience jet lag when traveling west and 16 times less likely when traveling east.
The free online information expands on older, publicly available versions of the Anti-Jet-
Lag Diet by providing a full, frequently-asked-questions page that includes detailed information
about food choices, caffeine use and the Anti-Jet-Lag Diet's origin and history.
The online software will calculate a detailed, easy-to-follow Anti-Jet-Lag-Diet plan
tailored to an individual traveler's itinerary, for a small fee. The tailored Anti-Jet-Lag-Diet plan
calculates time differences between departure and destination cities and specifies key meal times
to help travelers experience more enjoyable vacations and productive business trips, free from
the debilitating fatigue and sleepiness associated with jet lag.
A study published in the medical journal Military Medicine proved the effectiveness of
the Anti-Jet-Lag Diet: In a test involving 186 National Guard troops flying across nine time
zones, soldiers who used the Anti-Jet-Lag Diet flying west were 7.5 times less likely to
experience jet lag. On the return trip east, soldiers who used the Anti-Jet-Lag Diet were 16.2
times less likely to have jet-lag. The study can be read online at
