First leg: LAX => London => Madrid => Palma
Second leg: Palma => Madrid => LAX
On a recent trip to Mallorca, I went without food on travel days. I didn’t eat on the plane, didn’t eat in the airport, and didn’t eat until it was time for the next meal wherever I had landed.
Despite enduring possibly the worst travels days I’ve ever experienced, both there and back, the flights themselves were the easiest, most comfortable flights I’ve had. I drank 250ml of water every hour (unless I was asleep), added some nuun electrolyte tablets, and downed a couple grapefruit seed extract pills if I felt run down.
VERDICT: I’ll never eat on a plane or during travel days again
- Slept great
- Felt great
- Stayed healthy
- Jet lag was virtually unnoticeable
