Hiking Nutrition Tips
To Keep You Strong

By Diane Spicer

Wondering what to eat when you hit the trail? You need some hiking nutrition tips! #hikingfood #hikingnutrition #trailsnacks #hiking #backpacking

Folks are always on the lookout for good hiking nutrition tips.

They also yearn for great ideas for tasty trail snacks to sustain hours and hours of hiking energy.

How do I know?

I get a lot of questions about what I eat on the trail.

  • And I happily spend a lot of time answering them.

That got me to thinking about how many hikers have nutrition questions, but don't have time to write to me.

That, in turn, led to the creation of a series of bite sized nuggets of hiking information that I call Fast (Hiking) Facts.

Fast Facts For Hikers

My goal:

  • To give you a fast read with lots of ideas to try right away, for the low cost of $1.89 US
  • Think "energy bar for your mind"

Each of these instant downloads is packed full of tips on how to select foods to take along on a hike, whether you're out for a quick day hike or are planning an extended adventure.

Every collection of tips is based on credible nutrition information AND filtered through my decades of hiking experience.

Here's what you'll learn

You'll discover:

  • important background information 
  • nutrition facts specific to hiking 
  • what to eat before, during and after a hike
  • some good additional resources to exploreYou'll learn:

A fast read, but lots of juicy tidbits
to try on the trail

It won't take you long to read these tips, but it might take you a few hiking seasons to fit all of these nutrition ideas into your hiking routine.

I'll be creating new titles beyond nutrition as the questions continue to roll in, but here are a few oriented around hiking nutrition tips to get you started.

Here's what one reader says:
"I just bought your nutrition tips for solo hikers book, on Amazon.  I just started reading it, but already I find it WAY more reliable than all the tips you can find randomly on the net.  Thank you for helping, at so low a cost." ~JM
