Tai Chi

(in reference to the IMAX movie that gave Andrew B. Chung the info about 2 pounds/day.)
http://www.thehealthfair.com 


Andrew Chung teaches Tai Chi in several places.
Food for 7 days (23 oz per day x 6 "full" days): 137.00             
     (first morning, fill-up with high-octane food
      at the trailhead & the last night, feast at the
      local pizzeria or whatever)

In terms of the best recommendations for ongoing treks and sustained energy, Carolyn Gunn, the author of the Expedition Cookbook (Hanson, p. 17), suggests planning for 4,000 calories per person per day for a trip such as Denali, in the ratio of 60-65% carbs, 20-25% fat and 10-15% protein (what amounts to about 2 pounds of food per person, per day, not counting packaging.) Expenditure can be as high as 6000 calories/day, depending on altitude, extreme temperatures, and performance requirements for any given day (NAMOHAE). The raw energy requirements increase 15-50% over that needed at sea-level for comparable exertion, and will obviously depend on the size and gender of the individual; a 115 pound woman, for example, won’t need as much food as a 175 pound man, assuming they’re doing comparable work. At the same time, food intakes typically fall 10-50% during altitude exposure, depending on the rapidity of ascent and the individual’s susceptibility to altitude illness such as AMS (acute mountain sickness). (Askew, p. 1)

Because my physics days are behind me, I’ll skip the math and venture a reasonable estimate of 1800 calories required for this feat.
If you only packed carbohydrates or proteins, this would require 450 grams of food (1800 calories / 4 calories per gram), which works out to be 1 pound of food. However, if you read this article, you would know that fats are more energy dense, and you would have packed those instead. This means you would only need 200 grams of food (1800 calories / 9 calories per gram), which is only 0.44 pounds. Just by changing your fuel source, or the type of food you packed, in this situation you could cut your weight from 1 pound of food to under 1/2 a pound of food, and still get the same job done! Amazing, but true!
These are “official” results from the MEDLINE database and thus have more scientific standing.

Abstract
We compared relative exercise intensity and active energy expenditure (AEE) on trail walking in the mountains, with those of daily exercise training, and whether branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) and arginine supplementation attenuated the release of markers indicating muscle damage and declines in physical performance. Twenty-one subjects (~63 years) were divided into two groups: amino acid (AA, 51 g of amino acids and 40 g of carbohydrate, male/female = 6/4) or placebo (PL, 91 g of carbohydrate, male/female = 6/5) supplementation during 2 days of trail walking in the mountains. We measured heart rate (HR), AEE, fatigue sensation, water and food intake, and sweat loss during walking. In addition, we measured peak aerobic capacity [Formula: see text] and heart rate (HR(peak)) with graded-intensity walking, vertical jumping height (VJ) before and after walking. We found that average HR and AEE during uphill walking were ~100% HR(peak) and ~60% [Formula: see text], while they were ~80 and ~20% during downhill walking, respectively. Moreover, average total AEE per day was sevenfold that of their daily walking training. VJ after walking remained unchanged compared with the baseline in AA (P > 0.2), while it was reduced by ~10% in PL (P < 0.01), although with no significant difference in the reduction between the groups (P > 0.4). The responses of other variables were not significantly different between groups (all, P > 0.2). Thus, trail walking in the mountains required a high-intensity effort for older people, while the effects of BCAA and arginine supplementation were modest in this condition.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

In this study, the hydration status of amateur cyclists who voluntarily adjusted their fluid intake to environmental conditions during a 3-day, 248-km mountain bike (MTB) race was assessed.

DESIGN:

Prospective observational field study.

SETTING:

Sani2C MTB Race, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, 2006.

PARTICIPANTS:

18 randomly selected amateur, male MTB cyclists.

MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES:

Reported usual fluid intake, environmental conditions, voluntary fluid intake, urine voided, changes in body mass, serum osmolality (SO), sodium concentration [Na(+)] and urinary specific gravity (Usg) during each stage (S).

RESULTS:

Dry bulb temperature (adjusted for windchill) ranged from 6 degrees to 21.4 degrees C during S1, S2 and S3. While 77.8% (n = 14) of subjects reported a usual intake of >750 ml h(-1) in previous MTB events, mean (SE) fluid intake in this race ranged from 341 (32) ml h(-1) during S1 to 551 (56) ml h(-1) during S3. Changes in mean body mass ranged between -0.99% and -2.02% during the three stages. Mean SO and serum [Na(+)] ranged between 292 (0.73) mOsm kg(-1) and 298 mOsm kg(-1) and 137 (0.35) mEq and 140 (0.42) mEq, respectively, during the 3-day period, while Usg remained

CONCLUSION:

Ad libitum fluid intake during the 2006 Sani2C MTB Race, which took place in unexpectedly cold environmental conditions, was substantially lower than the usual reported fluid intake of subjects. Changes in body mass, SO, serum [Na(+)] and Usg were not clinically significant, indicating that an adequate hydration status was maintained during the multiday MTB cycle race.

Abstract
Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is the major cause of fatalities in males over 34 years of age during hiking or downhill skiing in the mountains. The main goal of the present study was the identification of risk factors and triggers associated with SCDs during these mountain activities. Besides recording individual circumstances associated with SCD, a case-control study was performed comparing the risk factor profiles of 247 males over the age of 34 who suffered SCD during mountain hiking or downhill skiing with those of 741 matched controls. The SCD risk was greatest on the first day at altitude but altitude per se and the duration of activity did not appear to markedly modify this risk. In contrast, the longer the time from the last food and fluid intake during hiking, the higher was the SCD risk. Early cardio-pulmonary resuscitation was started in 33% of skiers and in 14 % of hikers after occurrence of unconsciousness. Hikers who died suddenly during mountain hiking were much more likely to have had a prior myocardial infarction (MI) (17% vs. 0.9%), known coronary artery disease (CAD) without prior MI (17% vs. 4%), diabetes (6% vs. 1%), hypercholesterolemia (54 % vs. 20%), and were also less engaged in regular mountaineering activities (31% vs. 58%) compared with hikers from the control group (all P < 0.001). Skiers who suffered SCD had much more frequently a prior MI (41% vs. 1.5%), hypertension (50% vs. 17%), known CAD without prior MI (9% vs. 3%), and were less engaged in regular strenuous exercise (4% vs. 15%) when compared to controls (all P < 0.05). These findings enable identification of skiers and hikers at increased SCD-risk and recommendation of preventive measures, e.g. pharmacological interventions and adaptation to specific mountain activities. They also underline the need for intensified cardio-pulmonary resuscitation training for all mountaineers.

Abstract
The effect of drinking tea on hydration status and mood was studied in nine male and four female members of expeditions based at Mt. Everest base camp at an altitude of 5,345 m. Whilst exposed to altitude-cold diuresis, participants were subjected to a crossover experimental design comprising two 24-h dietary interventions. In the "tea" condition, hot brewed tea formed a major part of fluid intake, whereas in the "no-tea" condition tea was excluded from the diet. Subjects were prohibited in both cases from consuming other caffeinated beverages, caffeinated foods, and alcoholic drinks. Mean fluids ingested [mean (SE); tea=3,193 (259) ml versus no tea=3,108 (269) ml] and urine volume (tea=2,686 (276) ml versus no tea=2,625 (342) ml] were similar under both conditions. Statistical analysis found no difference in urine stimulated as a result of the tea intervention (P=0.81). Several markers of hydration status were also taken immediately pre and post each condition, including measures of urine specific gravity, urine electrolyte balance (K+, Na+), and urine colour. None of these measures indicated a difference in hydration status as a result of the dietary intervention in either the control or tea condition. A difference was, however, found in mood, with subjects reporting reduced fatigue when tea was included in the diet (P=0.005). The study shows therefore that even when drunk at high altitude where fluid balance is stressed, there is no evidence that tea acts as a diuretic when consumed through natural routes of ingestion by regular tea drinkers, but that it does have a positive effect on mood.

Abstract
The purpose of the descriptive study was to determine the hydration status of recreational backpackers (n = 201) hiking at altitudes between 7,500 and 14,000 feet. Urine specific gravity was used to document the level of hydration of each subject entering or leaving the Bridger-Teton Wilderness. Demographic, risk, and knowledge factors were also obtained from the sample. Both pre-hike and post-hike subjects were dehydrated; pre-hike mean specific gravity was 1.018, and the post-hike mean was 1.023, showing a significant difference (t = -4.671, p < 0.0000). A small subset group (n = 10) entered both pre- and post-hike data and the findings were similar to the large group, showing a significant increase in specific gravity post-hike (t = -4.881, p < 0.0009). Interestingly, 24% (n = 130) of the post-hike males presented with hematuria.

Piano

A while back I sang for Roger Williams on his birthday at the Carter Center. His piano looked like a gold piano. I had a student who didn't show up for piano lessons recently because I don't play and practice. I can teach.  Maybe he is an autodidact, or maybe he didn't want to practice. I am using simple ways of fund raising. I have been told to join Toastmasters to get opportunities to speak about crime prevention. If I don't sing again for people, it is OK. I have always done it much more for myself than for other people.

Guessing science


Al Reynolds, a medical librarian found these few articles. I am sure NASA has something comparable for astronauts. My point is that a Google search only gives us guessing games and tells us to buy a scale with no recommendations that make sense. The frozen food aisle has boxes of 8.5 to 12 ounces of food for a single meal. Not to a 17 course meal. 



Food for 7 days (23 oz per day x 6 "full" days): 137.00

      at the trailhead & the last night, feast at the

Difference of Buddy System and Instant Buddy

#InstantBuddy is ONLY for women (inspired by Chandra Levy, Jennifer Ewing, Meredith Hope Emerson and many other women abducted, tortured and killed) Buddy System is for anyone, so it is NOT the same!!! Buddy System: Male/female, male/child/, female/child, and basically people watching each other so no one is walking around without watching out for each other. Matthew 24:3, Matthew 24:28. Vultures do not go to the carcass unless there are no lions, tigers and bears. Eagles do not rush to eat risking life, and neither do we rush to eat risking life. We watch out for each other and use the Buddy System/#InstantBuddy  When I say I facilitate a safety workshop and will buy a chocolate cake on Sunday morning on the 12th at 11:30 am for people who show up in Hiram, GA @Folks Restaurant, please RSVP by tweet on the 11th. I won't be there on the 12th unless 8 people RSVP the day before, and I won't order the cake unless 8 really do show up. Tweet Fairchar or Charfair. Find me through #InstantBuddy

Health Tip: Hiking or Running on a Trail

Don't go it alone


(HealthDay News) -- If you're tired of the same running routine and the same old scenery, consider a new hiking or running trial.
The American Council on Exercise makes these recommendations before you hit the trail for the first time:
  • Hike a new trail before you run it, familiarizing yourself with the new layout.
  • Don't walk or run a trail alone.
  • Carry a communication device, such as a walkie-talkie or cell phone.
  • Take a small, basic first aid kit that includes bandages, tape, a knife and antibacterial ointment.
  • Make sure any weight you carry is evenly distributed; try to carry most of the weight around your hips.
  • When going downhill, keep knees bent and don't lean back too far. Use short strides when hills are steep.
  • Run with your head up and push your arms from the shoulders, rather than from the elbows.

InstantBuddy on Twitter

All the stuff I do is to prevent crime. The workshop is to prevent crime with communication. The poncho power is to prevent crime (ask me how, and God willing I survive I will write about it). 


People who don't want to go through Amazon or Kindle can get a PDF directly from me with a check to Charlotte Fairchild, Fear Thou Not, P.O. Box 1268,  Hiram, GA 30141. I don't have an account for my nonprofit. I wasn't decapitated like Meredith Hope Emerson, so I don't have the sponsors. Not enough people want to support this Jennifer Ewing inspired nonprofit. If you donate with paypal on this blog, it takes six weeks for me to get the donation, and their paypal company gets close to 5%.


Please look at older blogs. Tweet me at Fairchar or Charfair please to RSVP for Folks. We could always meet at Chik-fil-A or at Home Depot. I wrote Molested: Prayers found at http://www.woestowows.blogspot.com and I do not take sides with either company. I realize many people are incarcerated and many people are gay because they were molested as children. Stats don't lie.

Who can do what YOU can do?


Time is 7:00 pm every night that 8 people RSVP by Twitter to Charfair the night before. I don't order the cake until 8 people come, so BRING YOUR BUDDIES!!!
Ask yourself if you ever met a guy who thought he wasn't a genius, and why is it you don't think you are? Who can DO WHAT YOU DO???

There is a private dining room. There will be a workshop for people sitting in chairs who will practice communication skills of saying "NO" for 1 to 2 hours so no one is staring or being nosy. Folks Restaurant has music. A chocolate cake will be provided by me only if 8 people show up. RSVP required by email on Craigslist or twitter. This event is free. Dinner and drinks are not provided. The limit is 8 people plus me. I do have Folks coupons! Anyone can say "no" to the chocolate cake!!

This is a great way to meet other women who want to prevent crime, use the #InstantBuddy (twitter) and be FRIENDS with women of all ages and practice empowerment near Hiram, GA. I do not sell books at this event. Donations are accepted and not required.

Check out Murder on the Silver Comet Trail @ Amazon to find out more about me, and check out IMVC.org to find out what I do with my spare time! Watch the free documentary! My blog is http://www.FearThouNot4.blogspot.com if you are REALLY curious. The nonprofit Fear Thou Not is LISTED on the calendar as a supporter for the sheriff of Paulding County. Donations accepted at the party and at the blog. I will have a form if you want to give feedback to the national office! The donations go to promote the Instant Buddy System and pay for getting the word out that women can PREVENT CRIME by sticking together!
