8000 calorie ration!!!

Ive has to change because of diabetes (type 2).

It’s lack of education, for most of my life ive been burning off the calories and needed the carbs to do what I did. When I was first injured the body burns a lot of energy recovering and even though I was laying there hardly moving I needed a lot of food. It was a difficult habit to get out of.

Now I try and keep my carbs down to 100 a day, 2000 calories. The fats usually go above the recommended 70, but they’re mostly good fats - fish, nuts etc. Saturated is usually cheese, but that’s also a pleasure as a thread bare diet is foolish.

As I child I put weight on after being brain injured - obviously recovering from the other injuries caused by being hit by the car used energy. Then as I was recovering I was less able to do physical things. Then as I got older and taller I was asked if I had an eating disorder.

Is anyone watching the programme on BBC4 about Obesity? Some seriously large meals on display.

The problem i see is that its 8000 cals if you eat it all, if you are on patrol for an extended period then you need to carry all your food, eqpt, spec eqpt, ammo, water, etc, etc the list goes on. You try your best to keep your weight to a minimum so you start to dump the non essentials from your ration pack. That must be why the J Plan diet is so effective
 
so you start to dump the non essentials from your ration pack.

That was always something of a norm, I used to do it myself so never had a problem with it.

Afghanistan made me rethink, especially the way an EOD team was required to operate. I discussed this with my team, emphasising the importance of fuel for the body, ORP wasn’t necessarily to be enjoyed (even though they were good). Team members could swap like for like meals and sundries, bit they had to go out with full 48 hours worth of rations.

My Bold .... and on that theme .... a somewhat different Rat Pack Review Hi Hi I posted on another thread .... " Wot no Porage " ...



ETA .... slight thread drift ... this guy , bigclivedotcom , certainly has some quirky uploads ..... " Opening the bulging tin of Surstromming (fermented fish) " is certainly worth a watch ... back on thread .

8000 calories is the sort of meal @ScaleyAlbereto serves to his dates. He just has a salad himself.

I felt bloated after an all day brunch. Two rashers of bacon, two sausages, two friend eggs, tomato, mushrooms, beans, and chips. I wonder how many calories that was?
At Wetherspoons that is 1240 cals

That would be 1240 cals at Wetherspoon

Would you eat two brunches? Whilst I enjoyed it I did feel bit bloated and since I had a long drive in the dark it was perhaps not the best choice.

How did you work out the calorific content, just out of interest? It was not at Wetherspoons BTW.
