Re: 0.4 lb weight loss per day leads to loss of strength and feeling less energetic in lean, active young men
- Yup, sound advice. Most important thing is getting calories into your body in a comfortable and digestible way that you know works for you when you. As other posters have said - concentrated protein early in the day may lead to digestive problems, exacerbated by the added stress of altitude. I like high protein/fat only at dinner.
And don't fine-tune nutrition at the expense of whether stuff tastes good. Sometimes when you're really tired you can lose appetite, and it's important to just keep eating when this happens, or it will come back to bite you in subsequent days. This is the one time that you can really feed that chocolate addiction guilt-free!

Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with them, just that not everybody enjoys them.

- Added up our meat... Salmon jerky, beef jerky, beef sticks, bacon jerky, dried buffalo (Tanka), dried ground beef, dried ground pork sausage...
Approx 20 pounds and $400+ for four of us on a 25 day hike plan.
If that isn't enough protein, hopefully the 5 dozen dehydrated eggs will help.
100 person x days of food is a daunting planning task.
