Eating/training while on military ex
I was hoping anyone with military (or even not) experience can throw out some ideas for what to do. I'm an army reservist and am taking off today for 3 days, than next month for 6 days - all out in the field. We'll be eating rations and/or assorted crap.
What would be good to preserve my muscle mass while doing all this hard work with insufficient calories? I was thinking of bringing lots of protein bars and some glutamine tablets. Suggestions?

Bring them if you wish. But 9 days off, even with reduced cals and eating MRE's you won't drop muscle mass. Btw, I have 19yrs military service and counting!.

I'd say if you really wanted to take some bars and some meal replacements.

If you want easy protein...take the pouches of tuna. No water so you don't have to drain it, you don't need a can opener and they are small and flat and easy to pack with you. I take them with me when I travel.
