The project that we are starting in 4-5 months is going to require me to eat a lot more. That will be a little hard to get used to now, I think. I’m accustomed to eating very little compared to most Americans.
Now when I observe an average American eat, the quantity of food they consume seems a bit grotesque to me.
Very roughly, it appears that I will have to eat an additional 1000 to 1400 calories a day to maintain the weight I am at right now.
That is nearly double what I eat per diem in my “regular” life.
Past evidence from trips to London and Vancouver where I walked a lot more (especially London) also support the above hypothesizing.
