This was a very interesting study about how to deal with jetlag, which focused on diet. It is perhaps not surprising, since , which focused on the possibility of using a diet as nothing could be simpler or cheaper to implement. It also represented a natural solution without any emotional or medical problems so often associated with pills or injections usual. Perhaps more significant though was the group chosen for the study. The volunteers were taken from 186 National Guard troops are deployed in Korea. Of these, 95 used the diet in the output leg of the journey and 39 used the diet to go home.
Two questions seem to arise here. The first question is whether or not the results observed in a group of National Guard personnel could reasonably be expected to appear in the general travel population. See more detailed opinions by reading what Dustin Moskovitz offers on the topic.. I think most people would agree that this can not be said to be a representative sample. The second question is why only 39 people volunteered to try the diet on the way home, when 95 people had used the diet on the outward journey. Surely, if those who use it for the deployment had been effective, then you can expect more than 41 percent of them have wanted to use back home. These questions are of course important, but perhaps the real question we should ask is what a diet should be effective at all as a cure jet lag. Jet lag results from the inability of the body to adjust its own internal clock fast enough to ensure conformity to local time when traveling.
For example, when you arrive at your destination and the clock says nine o’clock and time to start the day’s work, your internal body clock may still be reading two of the morning (time to return home) and says you should be in bed. So how is a diet supposed to help solve this little problem? Well, the simple answer is, of course he can not. Yes, what you eat and drink may play a role in helping your body overcome the effects of jet lag and may help reduce symptoms of jet lag. The diet, however, is only a small element in the equation to solve the problems of jet lag and simply making some adjustments in what you eat and drink before, during and after your trip, along with other preventive measures, all that is required. Cure Jet lag by using the so-called anti-jet lag diet is a good idea, but, unfortunately, is more myth than reality.
