Travelling can take a toll on your body, especially if you’re constantly on the go. During air travel, the combination of prolonged periods of sitting, jet lag, and changes in meal times can disrupt the body’s natural rhythm, leading to higher blood sugar levels. However, with these flying cheat codes, one can maintain stable blood glucose levels even while travelling.

How to stick to healthy choices while flying to control your glucose levels
• Try to carry some healthy snacks along, so you don’t go for a long time on an empty stomach. This will help you avoid unhealthy food and also keep your blood sugar levels stable.
• While eating out, you can order food in this flow – fibre (vegetable-based preparations), protein and, lastly, complex carbs. Try to consume your meals in this order. This will provide all the necessary nutrients your body needs while helping you avoid being tempted to unhealthy options.
• You can request cafe/restaurant staff to prepare food without sugar or other additives to avoid unnecessary calories. If it’s not possible, try to go for food options that don’t have sugar.
• Try to carry apple cider vinegar (ACV) whenever possible and have it before your meals. This will help improve your digestion and boost your immune system.
• Try to walk for 10 minutes after each meal.

Maintaining stable glucose levels while travelling is important. When travelling, factors such as changes in meal timings, physical inactivity, and stress can affect blood sugar levels. Monitoring and managing carbohydrate intake, staying hydrated, and keeping active can help stabilize glucose levels while travelling.
