So I read the discussion about fats and carbs for long-distance travel, and now I'm confused as to what might be my best choice for food on the trail. Right now, I'm essentially eating Paleo, but more adhering to Phase I for Atkins, because just eating Paleo alone was not helping with weight loss. I know that when we start backpacking again, I'll still be wanting to eat low-carb during my daily life to maximize weight loss. What about when I'm actively backpacking? Should I include more carbs then to prevent bonking, or should I just stick with my usual routine? I'd be backpacking mostly 2-3 days at a time, and we rarely go further than 10 miles a day. I hope to be doing the Wonderland Trail + Northern Loop this summer as a 12 day trip, and then we'll be having a few days of 11-12 miles, but still nothing like the 20+ miles generated in the above discussion.
My breakfasts last summer leaned pretty heavily towards the carb side of things, and I can't say that I lost a lot of weight while backpacking. So, even though I'm not doing high mileage, I'm guessing I should cut out more carbs while backpacking?
