I've been doing some research on how many calories a backpacker expends per
day on a thru hike. The numbers seem to point to 5,000 to 6,000.
Do you all try to carry / consumer that much on trail or make up the deficit
Do you calculate food needs by calorie or pound?
How much do you carry in calories or pounds for a thru hike (per day)?
Does this differ as the hike progresses?
I'm 6'2" 165 (i.e. not too much to spare)
Eating strategies for not turning in to a skeleton?
