I guess there are special formulations for patients who require energy, but does anyone know which foodstuff has the greatest calorie density - McD's shakes aside!
To compensate for the short lactation period, the fat content of phocid milk is higher than in any other species of marine mammal (45–60% fat).
A clear sign that we are working hard is that we are each consuming 7000 calories a day & still tightening our waist bands a notch or two!! Our diet consists of pasta and pemmican. The pemmican is a mixture of suet, ground meat and wheat grain, based on an ancient Antarctic recipe for SLEDGE DOGS! Our pemmican mix was made more palatable by a French chef.During the day for our 3 breaks we eat high fat raw bacon, nuts and an aptly named "Zero" chocolate bar (best eaten cold!). We also eat our special secret recipe chocolate truffles that give off 700 calories each. The most disturbing factor of our diet is that both Richard & I crave our 125 grams of pure butter eaten neat daily.To aid digestion and help the body transfer the fat content to energy we are taking an enzyme called Lipase. The evening cocktail of hot whole milk and maple sugar is a well looked forward to treat.
Drinking isotope labelled water and collecting regular blood and urine samples, Stroud discovered that their energy expenditure exceeded 10,000 calories per day, significantly greater than the human digestive system is capable of absorbing
