You need to adjust your circadian rhythm (tho i'm guessing you knew that already). Some people have success with bright light therapy &/or melatonin. Melatonin can be taken a few days before your flight as well, to tweak your circadian rhythm... (more)

When I travel I'll usually do 6-8 eggs and about a 1/2 lb of bacon for breakfast. That usually can hold me for 36-48 hours with no hunger at all. I don't get too fancy with my breakfast. I try to get as much fuel as possible.

The hidden gems are in people's chest freezers. So many people hunt and fish in AK, if you are going to people's homes, good chance you'll get to try different game.
