Eating meals on treks, safaris & expeditions is a challenge to many. Your body works out so much that you are tempted to gorge on all food available. Yet, over-eating could work against you while trekking. Safaris or expeditions. So how does one strike a balance?
Trekking is a high, calorie-consuming activity – that’s a no-brainer. “But what we’ve noticed is that many adventurers get overwhelmed with the amount of exercise that they are suddenly doing on treks and tend to feel that the quantity of food being served is inadequate,”
The idea here is to replace the calories lost, not feast. You don’t want to feel like a bloated bean bag when you have miles to go uphill, do you?
“One needs to consume the right kind of calories. Carbohydrates do boost energy, but more than the amount, one must ensure that they eat the right kind of carbohydrates which are so more important for the body at that altitudes and at times harsh conditions.
