CheapOair has announced advice for passengers in how to fly without worry, including concerns of gastrointestinal nature, the company said.
To ensure a journey free of bloating and discomfort, the CheapOair team has advice for any traveler looking to snack without regret while in-flight. The two culprits here are the high trans-fat and oil. Additionally, salty fast food could lead to swelling in the hands and feet which is exacerbated by the high altitude.
Most travelers may think vegetables are a no-brainer when it comes to eating right before a flight but there are several usual suspects that will have anyone feeling a bit gassy before the plane leaves the tarmac. While extremely healthy, cruciferous vegetables like kale, cabbage, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts are all foods known to increase the amount of gas produced in the body and should be avoided while sitting for hours in a low-air pressured cabin.
Also, sugar and fizz are not the friends of anyone on a long flight. These two ingredients can expand the stomach and lead to extra bloat. It´s also wise to avoid alcohol or at least drink it in extreme moderation because the relatively low humidity on flights can cause faster dehydration. Water is always recommended as the number one way to stay hydrated on a flight.
