Keto backpacking // How to go Keto in the wild


welcome to the wilderness backpacking
buddies today you’re going to learn my
top low carb and keto food ideas for
when you hit the trail
Elisa here head chef at warriormade.com
now you often
see me behind the kitchen counter but as
much as we believe in creature comforts
at Warrior Made we also like to push the
envelope a little we usually send our
tribe members at home workouts and
recipes for home-cooked meals but today
we’re getting out of the house to work
our bodies and spend some quality time
in nature you see backpacking is one of
my favorite things to do but it can be
hard to leave the comfort of my home
especially since I follow a very
specific low-carb diet like keto which
is why I’m excited to share some of the
tips I’ve discovered about how to stick
to keto in the wild so what are we
waiting for
let’s venture into the great outdoors
ok
let’s dig right in my first tip is all
about when to eat carbs on your trip now
if you’re already on keto or a low carb
diet you know that only about 5% of your
daily food intake is from carbs that’s
because on keto most of your energy
comes from fat but you may have also
noticed that carbs still play an
important role and that they still give
you a little extra energy boost even
when you’re in ketosis so on a strenuous
backpacking trip it’s important to eat
your carbs right before or after your
biggest push of the day this will help
to ensure your muscles recover quicker
and will provide you the extra energy
you need to get through your hike for my
weekend backpacking trip I usually eat a
carb filled breakfast right before I
start hiking this may mean eating a meal
of keto pancakes just before hitting the
trail or a stir fried packed with lots
of veggies later in the video I’ll show
you how you can be hydrate your own
backpacking meals to bring with you on
your trip
now another way to stay energized on the
trail and to keep your muscles and cells
replenish is to be savvy about hydration
we all know to drink lots of water when
we’re exercising but when you’re in
ketosis you need to make sure you’re
maintaining your electrolytes
electrolytes are minerals like sodium
chloride potassium magnesium and calcium
you can carry electrolyte packs like
these to add to your water unlike other
electrolyte supplements these don’t
contain carbs or sugars and they’re
loaded with the trace minerals you need
to stay hydrated if you start to feel
weak or lose concentration along the
trail it may be a sign to load up on
electrolytes since water quality also
matters and it can sometimes be tricky
to find clean water in the wild I always
bring a water filter with me when I hike
all right on to tip number three snacks
and supplements I wanted to show you the
low-carb and keto friendly snacks I
bring on the trail with me in addition
to nuts and nut butter packs I also prep
a few of my own hiking snacks the first
snack I love to prep is jerky I season
and dehydrate the meat vacuum seal it
and then it’s ready to go light and easy
to pack you can also cook the meat at a
low temperature in the oven
if you don’t have a dehydrator or just
buy a pack without any added sugars or
nitrates
now the second snack I love to prep is
cinnamon trail mix it’s low carb and a
keto version which means no grains or
added sugars click the link in the
description below for those recipes ah
and the other thing I forgot to mention
is that I usually carry certain
supplements with me to help myself stay
in ketosis while hiking at the end of
this video I’ll show you the ones I use
first though I wanted to share with you
my favorite low carb backpacking tip okay
I saved the best tip for last how to
pack and cook your low-carb and keto
meals on the trail if you’re heading out
on a backpacking trip you know that
weight matters so you obviously won’t be
trekking with a cooler or a huge camping
stove which means you’ll have to be
smart about how you pack your food and
how to heat it up did you know that you
can actually prepare an entire meal
ahead of time using a food dehydrator
and rehydrate it on the trail I know
that seems like a lot of work if so you
can also purchase low-carb prepackaged
camping food online or in certain
camping stores and when it comes to
rehydrating either types of these meals
I usually carry a jet boil and rehydrate
my food in the pot it comes with now all
I need to do is boil my water pour my
backpacking meal into a container
then pour the water into the meal
now you’re going to cover it and wait for it
to rehydrate and then I get to feast
after a long day on the trail
I hope you’re as excited as I am that
keto and low-carb diets are possible in
the wilderness it just takes a little
preparation and of course listening to
your body’s needs along the way
oh I mentioned I’d share with you the
supplements that I take to support my
keto journey on the trail click the link
