Before departure, you should refuse the temptation to snack on abundantly salty food and some drinks , because they can make you feel bad in the air, experts told The Sun.
Salty foods such as french fries or chips can cause bloating, which will worsen at 10,000 km. The gas inside the body will expand during the flight due to the decrease in air pressure, this will swell the stomach, which will cause discomfort.
In addition, it is not recommended to eat yogurt at the airport, as most of them contain sugar. According to Australian nutritionist Kara Landau, it can worsen bowel function. Instead, she offered plain Greek yogurt or protein bars with no artificial sweeteners or added sugar.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advise against eating sushi due to the potential risk of food poisoning. Here's what they advised not to eat: “Raw or undercooked fish, shellfish, or foods containing raw or undercooked seafood such as sashimi, some sushi, and ceviche.”
Sushi can contain a lot of salt, especially if you add soy sauce – and as mentioned earlier, salty foods can lead to bloating.
Among the drinks, there are also forbidden drinks at the airport. It's coffee and alcohol. Drinking coffee or other caffeinated beverages before a flight can cause frequent toilet urination, and dehydration causes an increased need to urinate. Caffeine can also cause headaches and insomnia, which isn't ideal if you're trying to sleep during a flight.
Beer, wine or a cocktail at the airport is an important way to start a holiday for some passengers. Flying can cause dehydration, just like drinking alcohol, so combining the two activities can make you feel worse. It is recommended to drink water between each alcoholic drink to combat dehydration. In addition, alcohol often causes violent behavior, for which airline personnel can remove a tourist from a flight.
