Just searching for a thread on M.R.E.s and came across this.
For a day you just need to worry about keeping yourself going. I'd say Gatorade or the equivalent for its electrolytes, and something with carbs for foods. People suggest things like jerky which is good, but it would seem carbs would be better than protein since glycogen which you get from carbs is essentially energy for your muscles. For 6 - 8 hours though it's really just calories. I always found certain granola bars great for a simple snack that can pack an easy 200calories.
on a side but related note, does anyone know of a local store(Montreal) that sells M.R.E.s? I need some in less than 2 weeks and I'm worried ordering them will come late.
