LOL! No good deed goes unpunished, eh? It probably has a lot to do with the level of exercise as well. If you're sore then you got a great workout and the body retains water to help with muscle repair as well. Hopefully you'll see a big whoosh after a couple of days of rehydrating and repair!

Whew! We're back! I did great with eating. We only pretty much brought cheese, nuts and jerky with us. The Jerky did have sugar in it. I tried to get the one with the lowest count that I could find. There was only water to drink. The hike was really hard! There were points where I had to pull myself up over rocks and boulders! It was well over 5 miles up then back down.
I checked the scale today... I gained weight! I'm sure it's water weight from all the salt I had. I'll just drink lots of parsley tea over the next couple of days to help get rid of it.

I can't carry a cooler up a mountain. :) I'm thinking quick, pocket food. I'm not allowed almonds yet, but I think they would just have to do in this situation. ;) I think the packets of tuna/chicken are going to be lighter to carry vs the cans.
I know I've seen packets of mayo somewhere... we'll have to snag some.
are you allowed to bring coolers? depending on the weather most of these things should last. and there's also all the canned foods--tuna, salmon, green beans, -----whatever ones you like. lots of veggies and fruits--tomatoes, grapes, berries. lots of these things i keep on the counter anyway.
how about going to an outdoor store and check out the prepackaged meals in the little foil packets. i have no idea if any are low carb or not. but, they are meant to be light weight and easy to pack.

There are shelf-stable cheeses, like the individually-wrapped wedge-style ones in a round container (can't think of name). You could also take olives and pickles to snack on. I think celery sticks might keep over a couple of days, surely? I have never tried it, but it's possible that they'd be ok and could be snacked on (they'd be a salad veggie, so you could have a decent number of them).... maybe you could have an ice pack in a container with them on the first day, then they'd only have to keep the second day, if the cold pack warms up? I know there are also bars and shakes by Atkins, but I'm not sure if they are Induction-friendly -- could be worth checking out!

I am going on a survival camp out with my sons venturing crew as an adult leader. There will be no campfires allowed.
Any ideas what I could bring to eat? I'm thinking beef jerky, nuts, boiled eggs? I'm not sure about keeping the boiled eggs out, but they are Korean eggs that aren't refrigerated anyway because they don't pasteurize them. Cheese sticks?
