Jet lag is not the result of fatigue, it is because of a massive change in longitude. Crossing time zones disrupts your body's internal clock, cabin pressure, lack of fresh air, and certain eating habit contribute to jet lag. If you've exercised, got a good night's rest and stay calm, you can pretty much avoid a jet lag.
