I am not sure, but according to a healthcare paper writer from https://penmypaper.com/, greens alone won’t give that much of energy required for a hiker. By plant you don’t mean a total vegan right? Plants will fill you up and reduce inflammation but for energy you need to consume some low-fat or fat-free dairy products, fish, grains, dried fruits and sunflower seeds. These will help build calcium and fiber and keep you and your heart healthy.
Better to consult with a professional nutritionist.
I am a 62 year old thru-hiker. Generally, thru-hiking is low intensity 20-25 miles days for months at a time, over thousands of miles with few breaks. I’ve been experimenting with a high fat, lower carb diet for the last year. However, with this diet I find significant inflammation, evenings, and low energy while on the trail. I am thinking of switching to a plant-based diet to reduce inflammation and gain energy. Your thoughts?
