There’s growing evidence to suggest that intermittent fasting could have a number of positive health benefits.
Michael Mosley, the doctor and author of the 5:2 diet, claims that fasting can help beat jet-lag.
In a weekend column, he points to Charles Ehret’s ‘Argonne diet,’ which involves alternating feasting and fasting in the days leading up to a trip. 
The eating plan was once proven to help improve jet-lag among military personnel. 
Mosley also shared his routine for taking flights from London to New York.  

There’s growing evidence to suggest that intermittent fasting could have a number of positive health benefits. And one of its champions, Michael Mosley, the doctor and author of the 5:2 diet, claims that fasting can also help you to beat the dreaded jet-lag on long-haul flights. 

Inspired by a recent trip to New Zealand, Mosley wrote about how taking up fasting in recent years has “greatly improved” his experience of jet-lag in a column for the Mail on Sunday. He describes jet-lag as being caused by “the imbalance between your internal body clock and your new time zone.”See the rest of the story at Business Insider
