Fly with the sun, not against it. Once flew London to Tokyo via Anchorage, and across Asia/Europe on the way back - no jet lag!

i typically go to east coast and just stay up until 11pm the day of arrival and have a few beers. can typically sleep 6 hours. then next days, get some exercise and sun, and take a nap around 4pm. no meds needed for me. my wife however, cannot recover even after a week...

There's a homeopathic product called No Jet-lag that is helpful. http://www.nojetlag.com/

Used as directed and followed up (if/as needed) with sleeping pills for a couple of days works well for me.

Good nutritional habits also help: alcohol in moderation, staying hydrated as well as avoiding junk food, sugary and caffeinated beverages to keep the body in optimum balance.

@timeon Well, people who travel distances far enough away from Japan to induce jetlag are most often going to countries where Melotonin is sold over the counter. That's how I stock up!

Jeff, you need a prescription for Melatonin in Japan

I take Melatonin. Gets rid of about 80% of my jetlag. I don't understand why people still make a fuss about jetlag when there's a cure for it anyway.

when I was younger, I used Pizzatime's strategy. It didn't really work, but I was not travelling that much and mostly for pleasure, so it didn't really matter. Nowadays I have to travel a lot, mostly for business, so I use sleeping pills. 2-3 nights and things are back to normal

Drink beer.

I walk around barefoot and make balls with my toes.

The best defense is a good offense. If you wait until you have jet lag, it's too late.
