1. SIP! SIP! SIP! ON WATER. It keeps you hydrated on long-haul flights and helps you avoid carbonated beverages, coffees and sugar-laden fruit juices
  2. PACK YOUR SNACK: nuts, seeds, chana, chikkis all make good snack options compared to chips, fried nuts and biscuits ON BOARD. 
  3. ORDER: Review the meal options available on board and book one before you fly 
  4. STOP MUNCHING: read a book, watch a movie, listen to your music. But refrain from munching. Eat every 2-3 hrs on the plane from the snack you have packed
  5. WALK: in the plane... at the airport. Give the escalators and the travelators a skip.
