My goal was to get over 3000 calories per day with a limit of 40lbs of consumables including fuel and trail water. Total weight for 20 days of the planned menu is just under 33 lbs leaving me 7 lbs to work with for luxury items such as fuel and water along with necessities like cookies and sipping whiskey.
I have balanced the nutrition to be heavy on the carbs because of the near constant elevation change on the LT so I anticipate needing those Clif bars throughout the day. Still there is plenty of fat to keep me from starving to death and protein as well.
