Keto-Adaptation for hiking

I continue to be amazed by all the health benefits I have known since becoming a keto-adapted. What is keto-adaptation? It's not a diet, it's not a lifestyle, and it does not carry the burden of restricted dietary choices based on a particular nutrition plan. In simple terms, it's the ability to easily burn fat as fuel. How does Keto-Adaptation provide benefits for backpacking?

Usually, backpackers must take between 1.5 and 2 pounds of food a day, even though I've already seen ultra-light people reduce their consumption to just over a pound a day by showing of great creativity, including relying on foraging like berries and fish. But if you could burn a few of your love handles, your belly fat or your saddlebags as fuel? Instead of carrying food on your back, you could burn extra fat reserves from your own body!

I recently had the chance to travel to the Colorado Rockies for a weeklong trip to the highlands. Wow! It really exceeded all my high expectations for beauty and loneliness. I have traveled with a couple of amazed friends and maybe a little dismayed by my little bag of food. The first night, we hung our food on a tree. We all noticed how small my food bags were: just 5 pounds for a 61 day trip. Perhaps they were secretly afraid of having to feed me and ended up becoming unfaithful themselves.

You may be wondering what I did and how the meals were prepared. For breakfast, I had a cup of tea and a keto-ball (recipe to follow). For lunch, I found these fabulous "pemmican" bars made by Epic, with my favorites like Lamb, Mint and Bison, Bacon and Cranberries. I would finish the lunch with a generous handful or two of pecans and hazelnuts, yum. For dinner, I had dried kale coated with olive oil and curry, a cup of miso soup, a handful or two dried yams in oil coconut and an ounce of chocolate. Clearly, I did not feel helpless.

I did not quite finish the experiment because the rain drove us out on the last day, but I ended up with about 2 pounds of food remaining at the end. That's 3 pounds for 51/2 days, plus about 2 ounces a day (total of 10 ounces) in treats like cheese and chocolate, which my friends brought and shared. That's equivalent to 10.5 ounces a day or 3.6 pounds for 51 days, much less than ultra-lite packers.

It is encouraging to know that my body will easily provide the fuel I need to climb the mountains and all the other things I want to do in life, simply by borrowing fat reserves that I've accumulated during the previous days. At the end of the trip, my friends were very impressed and wanted a keto adaptation so that their backpacks would be lighter next summer. To learn more about keto-adaptation, look for an upcoming class in Hidden Springs or call the clinic for a consultation.

Keto-Ball recipe

Mix the following and roll into balls:
