AROUND 30 YEARS AGO, I wrote an Air Training Command document related to the effects of jet lag. Interestingly, we used the term "circadian desyncrhonosis" because "jet lag" was not a common term then. One of the considerations we offered was diet. Some of our conclusions were later proven in long military flight experiments.
As could be expected, the commercial version of the research offers an easy-to-follow series of tips that can reduce or prevent jet lag for anyone traveling east or west across three or more time zones. Argonne biologists borrowed conclusions we published with the Human Resources Research Organization to offer a quick way of calculating your diet.
Just remember this: you can beat jet lag with bananas. On a "feast day," eat bananas. On a fast day, drink water.
