"Eat Like a Fat Person" when touring?
"The best advice I've ever heard about nutrition while touring came from my brother Justin. He told me to "eat like a fat person." This means lots of fatty foods like potato chips, fries, pizza, steak and doughnuts. Incidentally, these are the same kind of foods I crave while on the road. Touring is a slow and steady sort of activity, and fat burns in much the same way. When ripping through 8,000 calories a day, one quickly burns through carbs. Your body then starts to burn fat reserves that will need to be replenished. The times I've eaten mostly vegetable stews and rice, I've found myself losing a lot of weight."
