Jacob---Team Mountain Laurel Designs is my new inspiration also! Dr. J. has a thread in this section on carrying less food (Lighter weight Food/Nutrition). I'm already "bulked up" by about 20lbs. Are you suggesting that fat is better carried on the body than in the pack and injested? Why? Are your foodless adventures relevant to me travelling 40+ miles/ day for 5 days walking and running 20+ hours/day over 10, 10-14,000 ft. passes attempting to set a new speed record? If I get so low energy and toxic that I slow down there is a point of diminishing returns on saving weight. I'm asking so many questions because I see merit in your ideas. Any further responses are appreciated.

Is the purpose of unsweetened koolaid to supply flavoring to make the salt water more palatable? I'm looking for a specific recipe and concentration for salts,buffering agents, etc. or a supplier of this product. Any ideas on recipe sources?
I will continue my testing of both high oil and reduced calorie diets while undergoing extreme exertion and duration.
