“The reason behind creating the Zero-G-Diet was to help travelers understand the benefits of balancing their everyday lifestyle by boosting their diet with nutrient rich food, supplements and herbs.”
Diet imbalances and deficiencies of essential nutrients are affecting biochemical processes inside your cells. It is also affecting digestion, preventing
internal natural detoxification and liver function.
My best friend “G” and her busy and stressful traveling schedule inspired me to create this Zero-G-Diet. G constantly plays with the “Gravity” either by
spending most of her week days in airplanes, or by skipping meals without even realizing it. Therefore, I dedicate this diet to G, to all of you that spend
too much time traveling, and to your zero levels of food and energy.
To help me create the most appropriate “Easy to Travel With” list, G asked me these 3 questions:
- What can I bring with me that is not too heavy and that doesn't take too much room in my suitcase?
- What can I buy at the airport?
- What should I order in restaurants?
So, with these questions in mind and I created a diet that should be suitable for all travelers (traveling three or more time zones at the time) with very little
space in their suitcases, without patience for getting supplements, and with almost no time or experience to prepare food.
Note: Zero-G-Diet could be complimentary to any diet or health condition caused by stress.
A constant stress that human body is exposed to while traveling is a major reason why travelers often suffer from low immune systems, poorer brain function,
and low adrenal and reproductive system functions. Adaptogens help increase the availability of energy during the day, reduce stress, increase endurance, improve mental
alertness, and enable a deep and restful sleep. Adaptogens also significantly accelerate the recovery process after illnesses or sports activities.
Adaptogenic herbs demonstrate a nonspecific enhancement of body's ability to resist stress, which is why I included adaptogenic herbs in my Zero-G-Diet as one of the
“must have little space” in every traveler’s suitcase. Some such herbs are:
- American Ginseng
- Siberian Ginseng
- Licorice root
- Holy Basil
These herbs help by producing the following activities in the body:
- Antioxidant activity
- Improved blood-sugar metabolism
- Improved immune resistance
- Increased energy and stamina
- Better focus and concentration
- Better motivation and productivity
