Don't do it! Bring plain ol' apples with you for the trip.

Tomorrow I fly home.  A great reward of weight loss has been easier travel. No longer needing a seat-belt extension was a huge milestone.

Of course, travel can be very stressful… and the food choices in the airport are generally abominable.  The sleep disruption (getting up at 3a for 6a flight; “red eye” flights; time changes) contributes to overeating, particularly of bad (high sugar/fat/salt) foods.

Therefore, as they taught me at Structure House, I prepare and bring my food with me.  Apples and green tea ride me over between meals.
