I have searched and read the other posts about traveling and vacation, but I want some real advice and encouragement....

I am going to Texas to visit home. Its an 18 hour flight to get to Seattle, where I spend the night, then hop on my next plane to get home the next day. I'll be staying in the USO (in the Airport) where I don't know where my lean and green will come from, as I am going to be there for 24 hours before my next flight..

I ordered another month of food, and I am getting it sent to where I will be staying with family. It has the puffs and pretzles, things I haven't had before so I will have some of those to take with me on the way back. I don't have time to order the premade shakes, and I couldn't take those on a plane with me anyway because of the liquid content and the fact that I didn't buy it IN the airport..

My visit will last from the 31st of this month, until the 23rd of April. When I am traveling back to Okinawa...I will spend another 24 hours in Seattle in the Airport USO..

I'm not trying to justify cheating at all...I DON'T WANT TO DO THAT...I want some advice on what to do so I don' t starve myself at the Airport or on the plane...18 hours is a long time to go without.

I have ordered a vegitarian meal for the flight there and back, hopefully they follow through so I can have veggies...and not eat the bread roll....

Thanks in advance, I wrote a little more than I thought I would.....

Can you get a salad w/ chicken in the airport? I would think, but I have no clue really, they would have salads. If nothing lese, eat the meat from a burger and dump the bread? Side salads.

If you have powdered shakes or soups you could make them there with hot (tea) or cold bottled water. Maybe just have an extra shake or Medifast meal that day? If they have a food court type place, maybe stemaed veggies with or without meat that day...

At the airport you can get your L&G... any restaurant (like a Chilis or TGIF) will do a salad and grilled chicken or steamed brocolli for you. I've gotten that in the airport. If there is a McDonalds you can do grilled chicken (no bun) for like 2-2.50 (you may need 2 to get 6 oz) and the $1 side salad (again you may need 2-3 to get to 3 cups) - just take out the few carrots in it. That would be what I would do, then eat your Medifast meals while on the plane. Or you can get something at a restuarant and then bring it on the plane to eat after takeoff - I've seen large chicken ceasar salads that you do and just not eat the cheese - that would probably save for an hour or so before eating it.

Bring 3 or so empty plastic water bottles thru security and then fill them at a water fountain to bring on the plane, that way you don't have to ask for water every few minutes or purchase it after security! You need to drink a lot more than 64oz due to being up in the air for a long time..

Have a wonderful flight and a good time at home!..

Thanks for the advice! I like those ideas! I just hope that places like Mcdonalds or Chilis are open at the time when I land!.

I'll write more later, I'm going back to work!..

Bring a whole bunch of crunch bars with you for the airport and air travel time. No security issues since they are not liquid and you don't have to do any mixing.

Another thing you can do is make the "breads" out of the cream of chicken / broccoli / tomato soups. Wrap them individually in foil.. they travel well...

It was good to read this thread. I, too, will be traveling overseas soon. My question is when to start the next day since I will be arriving late afternoon there but it will really be the middle of the night here. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated...
