Just watched a documentary about airplanes, and learnt that the pressure difference when we are flying is having an effect on the oxygen we absorb, explaining why our taste is not exactly the same (everything seems blander), and we have less energy.
Not having a sweet tooth on ground level, I always wondered why I had cravings for very sweet chocolate when I traveled. I guess my body just knows that the chocolate doesn’t have such an over sweet taste during flights, and that it is seeking a quick fix for the lack of energy… Hmmm… One less weird thing about me! Mystery solved!
Have you ever noticed that you had odd cravings while flying?
