    Look into the protein leverage hypothesis. People overeat because their food is poor quality and lacks nutrients. They keep eating until they achieve a threshold of protein. This is a mountain of food if you're eating low-quality processed carbage. But if it's steak and eggs, overeating ends. This is how we're wired, and explains the horrible "hiker hunger", always based on a pop tarts, Little Debbies type of diet.

    Carbs got Cory to very nearly 400 pounds.
    Carbs are keeping him where he is.
    My unofficial weight tally based on Coryís account:
    Lost 35 pounds to Warner Springs. Approximately 100 miles.
    Lost 37 pounds in the next 400 miles.
    Something ainít right. Pringles. Gatorade. Carbs and more carbs.

    And yet he continues to walk. With good humor. I'm enjoying him.

    I agree, and noticed his gear is I'll fitting as well. I think it's in part due to him still being quite overweight. I'm impressed with the progress he's made, I just hope he stays injury free...pushing 20+ mile days carrying more than 100 extra pounds makes me nervous.

    The latest video, #59, is a quantum leap in production quality. The whole team has learned a lot since leaving the fence in Campo! Gone is the selfie stick and the phone aimed straight at Cory's face for the duration of the video.
    Well done Y'all!
    The new REI pack that Cory mentioned a month or so ago has finally appeared in the latest video. The fit and carry appear to have improved.

    Why did get rid of the old (Granite gear?) pack?

    Best guess: Change of fit with weight loss.

    Maybe it was in the comments to one of videos, or maybe a news article I read, but he mentioned the reason his pack leans to the side is because he had a shoulder injury in the past. One shoulder is fine and muscular; the other is not and has lost muscle. So his pack is droopy.

    I wonder how the Little Bee thing will play out??? Its fun watching his videos, I think he's doing ok. having a good time. I'd rather watch him hike than the debate that's on TV.
