Once a week on Sundays I go hiking with my girlfriend in the mountains for about 6 hours straight. It's a lot of necessary cardio (I love hiking with her), but am wondering if there's some way I can eat to minimize muscle loss.
I usually pack 3 meals (one quick one every 2 hours) consisting of chicken and fruit thinking that P+C is better than P+F while hiking. Is this right or do I have it completely backwards? Also, does anyone recommend carb loading before the activity or have other such tips?
Thanks a million!
