I go no-cook these days. WAY better. I cut 10 pounds off my pack. dry milk and whey protein powders for shakes and as much junk food as I care to carry. cheese is the best, and salami, nuts, dried fruits, 100% cocao chocolate, crushed crackers, etc. 2 lb per day of food cause I don't carry food on my waist. I don't have enough meat on me to go John Muir style (no food at all for a week at a time). 2 lb per day is plenty. I also carry food for the last day even though they say that's a no-no too. Just in case.
Try no-cook. You'll never go back to a camp stove and white gas again.
