Mountaineering action food direct attack! ! !

What kind of food should be prepared or how much should be prepared? Do you often prepare a lot of food but you can’t finish it and have to take it down the mountain? ! !

The picture collects some types of sports food that mountaineering enthusiasts usually bring to the mountain (not dinner), such as sweet and sour candies, sweet and salty biscuits, and healthy dried fruits and nuts, etc. , there are so many kinds of them, I wonder if there is one you like the most?

We have also found some reliable information for your reference~ Are you also worried about how to prepare mobile food? Just read this article!

What are the necessary conditions for climbing food?
1. High calorie and high nutritional value
2. Items that are easy to digest, delicious and ready to eat
3. No deterioration (corruption), easy conditioning, and less waste (kitchen waste).
4. Light weight, small size, easy to carry and take.

In addition, it should also be noted that the packaging types such as potato chips and bread will swell up in high altitude areas, so pay attention to the increase in volume and take up space in the backpack! When packing, you can also remove unnecessary packaging first, such as cartons, which can save space and weight~

How many calories will you burn climbing a mountain?

Mountaineering is a very energy-intensive exercise. After reading a round of information at hand, the editor here provides a relatively simple calculation method for calorie consumption. However, after the calculation, I found that the calories consumed may not be able to be returned during mountaineering! So I still prepare What you like to eat and what you can eat~

Take exercise intensity "metabolic equivalent (METs)" as an example to calculate: calories consumed during exercise = metabolic equivalent MET (kcal/kg/hr) x body weight (kg) x time (hr)

Mountaineering is about moderate-intensity exercise, ranging from 3 to 6.5 METs. If it is downhill walking, it is about 3 METs, and it is about 6.5 METs from hiking to race walking. (The above refers to exercise physiology - Table 2-3 Estimated energy consumption of different physical activities)

Assuming that the editor is 50kg, climbing with an average intensity of 6 METs, and the time lasts for 4 hours, it will consume about:
6 x 50 x 4=1200 kcal Do I need to pay attention to the distribution of nutrients?
According to the "Planning for Applicable Foods for Climbing in High Mountain Areas of Sheipa National Park", the nutrients needed by climbers are basically divided into carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, minerals, vitamins, and water. When the human body is in the initial stage of fatigue, it is advisable to eat sweets and digestible acid foods to replenish physical strength. Since blood sugar begins to drop after about 15 minutes, it should be replenished quickly. Therefore, it is necessary to constantly eat foods that are easy to generate calories to maintain physical fitness. After a long period of accumulated fatigue, a large amount of carbohydrate or fat food is needed. After strenuous exercise, it is necessary to supplement protein and electrolytes to restore physical strength.

The above is a summary of some key points of action food preparation for everyone. If you don’t want to think so much, it’s okay, just buy what you like according to the picture (big heart)~ I hope everyone will have fun eating and playing every time you go up the mountain~ If you If you have other questions, please leave a message or send us a private message!
